Fresh Android Games for Jan. 27: !3D Bubble Breaker, BlackJack, X Construction

by Ian Black

Today’s fresh games brings a twist on Bejeweled with !3D Bubble Breaker. Pinch and zoom your way around a large wall of cubes in order to find your matches. Also, today, play a realistic version of Black Jack or use your building block skills to create bridges that will support a train.

!3D Bubble Breaker (Free)

Here’s a cool variant on three-in-a-row matching games like Bejeweled. This app offers a large 3D wall of cubes that you can “fly” around and zoom in and out to find your matches.

With Bubble Breaker, use your finger to navigate around the wall. Pinch-zoom to move in close. Then, tap on two or three matching colored cubes that are adjacent to each other either vertically or horizontally.

BlackJack (Free)

Black Jack remains an enduring classic of card games. This app delivers an exciting high-resolution version of the game to your phone. It looks as if you’re sitting at a Black Jack table in a casino.

The game features all the details of the real card game including splitting, doubling down, and insurance. For shorter game play, set the app to “5 Minute” or “30 hands” modes. Practice your Black Jack strategy before heading out to play with real money.

X Construction (~$1.36)

Like building stuff? LEGOs and other block-building games exercise the mind but what if peoples’ lives depended on what you built? That’s the premise of X Construction where you must build bridges that a train can cross safely without a bridge collapse and train wreck.

Using steel girders, you need to construct bridges over simple grass pits then more complicated valleys and the most challenging chasms. The physics are meant to be real so if your bridge can’t take the weight of the train, the whole thing will come crashing down.
