Welcome to my Golden Bubble Sort Review.
So recently, I was playing one of those interactive ads. They’re the kind that lets you play the game from within an advert.
Anyway, this ad was for the game I will be reviewing today and what it was about was me collecting several balls within a container.
I need to collect 20 orange balls, and as a result of doing that, I was told that I had won $100, and to get it withdrawn, I needed to download the game.
I was quite suspicious at this stage as this game showed me how just collecting one ball would earn me $5. It gave me this sense of winning a lot with giving me this amount I wouldn’t get in the actual game.
The game has been out for a while, but I know some of you will wonder if this sorting game is any good or even legit.
So make sure you stick about as I will go over whether or not any of the earnings they portray in the ads are true and if you can get paid just through sorting through balls.
Golden Bubble Sort Review Summary
- Owner: Happy Bubble Games
- What Are They?: Puzzle Game
- My Worth It Rating: 2/5
What Is Golden Bubble Sort?
Golden Bubble Sort has been out since early summer; however, I came across it by reviewing another game by the developers called Golden Dot Connect.
Compared to the other game I checked out by them, this one has been far more popular. They have well over a million installs on the app store plus have an average rating of 4.1 stars.
Now I am not sure if the developers Happy Bubble Games are still pushing the ads like they were a months ago, but they were showing people a series of adverts from what I recall.
The first one I talked about earlier was when you could play the game within the ad. As you played it, you earned ‘fake’ money that would increase your total at the top.
At the end, I was shown a congratulations message that I had earned $100. Here it is below:
This doesn’t mean anything, as its just an ad.
That means if you do what I did and then download Golden Bubble Sort, you won’t be getting one hundred dollars in 30 seconds as you did in the interactive advert.
Happy Bubble Games only do this to get a high conversion on the number of people who view their ad and then install the game.
How Does Golden Bubble Sort Work?
To install it, you will need to type into the app store Golden Bubble Sort. As far as I know, it is only available on Google Play.
To get started, you need to sign in. It can be done by using your Facebook, Google, or just by clicking on the guest login button at the bottom.
Along with all other new users, you will also get a newcomer gift of $1, which is, of course, a long way from the advert claims.
But this was to be expected.
Now before I talk about the game, let me touch upon the overall game’s setup and feel. Just from looking at the menu and even the chests, there are similarities to other games, even those made by different developers.
Games that this one reminds me of include:
This is because features such as the invite friends, slots, and even the mega chest prize are a feature of each game.
It almost feels like it’s been duplicated, and because of that, it’s not a good sign since those three games don’t payout either.
How To Play The Game?
If we look at the actual game itself, just like in the advert, it is straightforward.
You have a set of jars, all including different colored balls.
The job you have is to sort them out into colors.
Here is a screenshot to give you a quick idea of what I mean:
Once you have clicked play, the game will start.
If you want to remove a ball, you simply click on the jar.
That will raise the one at the top, from there you click on the jar you want to move it too.
The first level is very easy, and will likely take you only a minute.
But as you move through, they should take you longer.
How To Make Money With Golden Bubble Sort?
As a reward, you get $2 for completing the first level. You will then get more money for completing other levels,
However, you don’t get cash every time, as sometimes it can be coins.
You will also see an opportunity to open a lucky chest after a level. This requires you to watch a video.
At the start, money is easy to come by; in fact, I earned $3 within the space of a few minutes just by completing two levels.
Going forward, this kind of money isn’t expected to be common, though, as this will decline at some point.
Some people have reported that they were getting only cents per level once they get towards the amount required.
Now there is a referral program, that is, if you can call it one.
That is because it does seem shady, and unlike legitimate ones, they say you can make thousands.
If you click on the invite tab, you will be taken to an external window that tells you the invitation program’s details.
A few minutes ago, I said how they had features copied from other games, and this is one.
You see, this program says you can refer and earn as much as $1500, but it’s not the first time I have seen it.
However, while the Golden Bubble State, that’s what you can make. It’s hard to make out how you actually get it.
I could make out that you can get $0,01 for each referral who joins through your link.
If they play it for consecutive days, you can get a few more cents.
However, it does look like if you want to make thousands, you will need to refer thousands and hope they play it every day.
You can understand the strategy here; Golden Bubble Sort, along with there neighbor games, want you to bring in as many people and incentivize them so that they play regularly.
Essentially it’s about the ad revenue and more users mean more advertisements being shown.
How Do They Pay?
I have seen from some users who have left feedback within the Golden Bubble Sort review section how one of the adverts said they could cash out straight away.
If everyone could do that, then people would sign up, complete a few levels, and cash out a couple of bucks.
It’s not a lot of money, but if hundreds of thousands did this, you would have app developers in huge debt.
Even with the amounts of the money, these apps make anyway, that would not be possible.
The reality is you have a threshold along with some terms that need meeting for a payment to be sent.
Now any game that I have mentioned in this review, I can tell you all of them were disappointing on the payment front.
For Golden Bubble Sort, they claim to pay out to all once you have reached $110 or $190.
They say how this will be issued within 1 day.
What You Need To Know About
1. Addictive Game
The game is enjoyable and comes with a unique concept to other games I have tried. A lot of games tend to be either copied; I have seen it a lot with the scratchcard, 2048, and Plinko typed games that are overdone.
But in this case, the developers have come out with a game I have yet to have seen done, and what is good is that its enjoyable to play.
2. Spammy Notifications
Apps give out notifications to share something with there users or to get people back playing the games. But with this game, I found it quite spammy, and if you intend to play Golden Bubble Sort, you may want to disable them.
Notifications can be fine, when not overdone and also when it is relevant.
But some of the alerts I was getting included how there was a cash prize contest of $1,750 that was ending in 2 minutes.
However, when I clicked on it, I saw no sign of contest. So it does look like along with the advertising that they are prepared to do anything to get your attention and get back you on their game.
3. No Sign Of Payouts
At first glance, it looks like there are two ways to cash out.
You can reach the threshold or complete all the 400 levels for the $110 mega prize.
However, I have reason to believe no one is getting either of the two.
That is because I took the time out to read feedback, and I found repeated instances where people weren’t being awarded credit that they were entitled too.
This feedback caught my attention as this individual said how they completed all the levels.
Once they got to the milestone, they expected to receive the cash as promised; however, it wasn’t awarded.
That was just one person, but you will see the same experiences and issues reported if you go through even more of these reviews.
It just feels like and especially for the so-called mega prize that once you have completed the levels, they don’t care, and it’s onto the next person and wasting their time too.
Now, as I said, the game is fun to play, and I would probably put some time into it, as from the levels I completed, I enjoyed it.
However, a lot of the users aren’t playing for the game itself, but for the money. That is why so many users are rushing to complete all the levels because they think there is a big payment waiting for them.
Golden Bubble Sort is a game where you sort balls out into each color, but the developers claim you can earn some money in the process.
Everything I have witnessed from playing this game and others just like this one and from reading reviews suggests the latter is not possible.
The advert is bringing hundreds of people; you would assume daily to play the game all to earn some money.
However, users are then toyed with, and for those who manage to finish the game, there are no prizes like guaranteed at first.
I already had an inkling of what to expect while doing this Golden Bubble Sort review.
I know you will be disappointed for many of you, especially if you have made progress in the game.
But what I am trying to do here on this site is to help people achieve more, and with apps like this that will waste your time, there are better opportunities out there for you.
