Guide to Bubble Witch Saga for Facebook: Tips, tricks, cheats and hints

By | September 29, 2011

Bubble Witch Saga is a new bubble shooter game by King.com. It’s a new, more progressive version of the hit flash game Bubble Witch, in which you progress from level to level, and you have to complete a different challenge with each level you beat. You also compete with your friends to see who can earn the top score on each stage. Can you get the top score out of all of your friends on every stage? For tips and tricks, keep reading.

You can get either one star, two stars, or three stars on each stage, depending on the score that you get. The number of total stars that you get allows you to unlock various extras in the game, such as new levels and new power-ups, so scoring high is imperative.

Conserve your energy by playing easy stages when you have only 1 life left. If you beat a stage, you will not lose any energy, but fi you lose, you will lose energy. So if your next stage is a hard stage, especially if it’s a harder stage that you have been having trouble with, play easy stages for awhile until you have enough coins to buy plenty of extra power ups so that you can take on the harder stage.

Each combo adds spiders, but each shot that you don’t knock out other bubbles with will take out spiders, so maximize your spiders by sometimes knocking out smaller combos that you could otherwise knock out by popping the bubbles above them. Sure, it’s not the most efficient way to beat a stage, but at the end of a beaten stage, when all of the bubbles drop and bounce around off of the spiders, having twice as many spiders for them to bounce off of could net you all sorts of extra multipliers and send your score skyrocketing, because for each spider you have that one bubble hits, your bonus goes up by hundreds or even thousands of points. Having a ton of spiders on the stage could skyrocket your score into unheard-of territory.

That’s all for now! More tips? Post as comments!

    what are the coins that you get in Bubble Witch Saga for? I can't buy potions with them so what good are they?

      I totally want to know the answer to this as well. I'm frustrated by games that have tons of "money" coming in, but there doesn't seem to be a reason for them. If you ever find out what its for, let me know!!!!

      at certain level you are entitled to purchase potions. they are very usefull. f.ex the extra spiders, the extra ceiling holes or simply the extra bubbles!

      Totally agree with Kaat. The coins buy you magic spells. They display before you play the game. There are also rainbow bubbles which change the colour of the bubbles you hit to match the bubble you are shooting. You can buy similar with real money but if you can get it with free – I'm all for it! Each spell that you buy lasts for 3 games. :-)

      La Una Roxe – there are Magic Potions and there are Charms – the charms are the one that need real money – the magic potions are the ones bought by the gold gifted by friends and also by the game at later levels – so far they have gifted me 100,000 coins in two lots of 50,000. The charms appear when you click on the level that you want to play – things like extra holes in the ceiling, extra bubbles, rainbow bubble… The Charms are the ones that you see when you go to Wilburs Shop or they pop up when you are stuck on a level… They are Charm of precision, charm of extra lives etc… Hope that helps… :-)

      Helen Harrington How many coins must you accumulate to buy these spells?

      Gaye Galluccio – from memory anywhere from 1000 to 2000. Each purchase lasts for 3 games.

      Sandra D Peters – when you pick the rainbow bubble option (over on the right hand side), you will see the bubble at the top of the cauldron turn into a rainbow bubble. When you shoot a group of bubbles, the rainbow bubble will remove them no matter what the colour of the bubbles… :-)

      I've been on level 50 for weeks as well. I just got 3 stars and a score of 153000, but it says I didn't score high enough? the level says 90000?? I'm getting too frustrated with this game. If you find rules, let me know. Do you need a certain number of stars to keep playing??

      Reply
    10. Helen Harrington

      Jocelyn Wallace – did all the bubbles drop when you got the 153000? You only pass the level when you have all bubbles drop and at least one star… Sorry if this seems a basic question but many don't know that you need to clear the bubbles as well as get one or more stars… The Stars are the important thing. The more you have, the more options get presented to you… :-)

      Jocelyn Wallace – 9 holes in the ceiling and all the bubbles drop! Do you have the option to buy the holes in the ceiling potion yet (with the free coins that you get from the game). That is one of the best helpers in the game. Makes life a lot easier! The spells you get offered to you depend on how many Stars you have so when you are stuck on a level, go back and play previous levels and see if you can get 3 stars on each. The higher you get, the harder the games are so the earlier levels become very easy once you get the skills under your belt! ;-) Good luck!

    this didn't tell me anything I didn't already know from just playing the game! What do the different spiders mean. I have seen green ones with moving dots on there back, the yellow ones have an X or a 2. And when I get an extra life from a friend where is it, I don't see it on the board?

    Reply
    1. Alison Kappler

      Blue spiders are 'standard', yellow spiders double the points (that's why they're marked 'x2'), and the green spiders give an extra bubble when a bubble hits them (the two dots on their back is meant to signify this). Just as a note, the way to get green spiders is to make 5 matches in a row. Hope that is of some help! :)

      If you have max number of lives already, then your friends sending a life does not get added – however, you can send them gold as a thanku for sending you the life – gold is good. For max benefits, try to send a life to someone who is playing as you can guarantee they will be losing their lives… If you don't have max lives, keep refreshing when you see someone has sent you a life, so you don't lose it. Remember to send your friends a life other than when they are playing also as hopefully they will be nice to you and send you gold as a thanku. If you note the gold total when they send thankus – it's already added to your total even though you are accepting their gift of gold… Hope that helps!

      Helen Harrington – yup, they need to fix that life thing…so annoying. Whenever I open the game, I have notes that my friends sent lives but since I'm at the max, I don't get to use them : (

    3. Helen Harrington

      Allison Schneider Peckham – good thing is that you still get the gold… It mounts up even if you are not playing the game. So make sure you still send everyone a life and get them to send you gold back. I've actually learnt quite a lot about the game now so have it down to a fine art!! Although am stuck on levels with bombs!

      no it's not. I was there FOREVER but I got past it. Try intentionally taking out the poison spiders at the bottom early in the game before you collect spiders at the bottom. It helps move the screen down so you can see the top and shoot around them after that

      You can get up to 3 stars in a level. To pass the level you need 1 star. If you look bottom right when you first open the level, you will see a "bar" – that bar will show you what you need for one, two and three stars (hover over the bar)

      Have you worked this out yet??? If you haven't, you have to surround the bomb with bubbles – that will deactivate it but be be aware that if you remove one of those bubbles, the count down will continue from where it was stopped – nasty things lol…

    Can the page be scrolled up or down during game play to see the top of the screen, when no bubbles can be cleared in the lower view of the screen, bubbles can be launched up out of view!

    I'm on level 106 and being able to buy those potions really does help, if you need extra coins instead of buying them with money, just play a level you know you can get atleast one star on and the coins add up quickly depending on how many stars you get.

      If you have a full set of lives, then no lives can be given to you however, do accept them as you can send coins back to the giver – those coins allow you to buy potions to help you through the game. Try to give as many lives to your friends – remember that even if they have a full set, you will get coins back as a thank you :-)

    I've just about completed the game (from what I can see that is left to play). I'm on the new level 6 on the island. Don't understand why they didn't continue with the numerical order of the game when I hit this level. I'm on the island and have played game 6 seven times. I have had all the bubbles drop in the cauldron each time, but I have no idea what I need to do differently to get at least one star. Never had this issue on any of the other 100+ levels. I would think if all the bubbles drop, that is the point of the game and there should be enough points to get at least one star. And why doesn't the game have game instructions for the players? I figured out a lot of the hints on here by playing, but never realized until my husband told me (he's way behind me) that you could stop the detonation by blocking the bomb. I figured if you hit it it would blow up. So frustrating at times. I was stuck on one of the upper levels for 2 weeks (136 I think). I finally purchased one of the potions to stop two bombs per game and finally was able to move on.
