Bloo Kid’s new mobile version set to deliver more platform gaming thrills

Nowadays, mobile games seem to be released in their thousands every day and competition among developers is hence higher than what it has ever been. In a move to keep their creations refresh and attractive, it was a requirement to find a way to continuously boost things up. Regular app updates were eventually the solution that most decided to adopt in order to keep players’ attention!

An example of a recently updated title can be Bloo Kid! The latter has been around for a number of years and according to its creators, its gameplay can be described as a mix between Bubble Bobble & Super Mario. However, over the years, most users seemed to have managed to overcome the original 84 levels on offer. A boost was a requirement to keep this pretty fun app alive; version 4.1 was hence delivered a few days ago.

On the other hand, it will be wise to note that an update is not necessarily meant to provide gamers with more playing time! It’s also an opportunity for the developer to improve the quality of the content that is being offered. In the case of Bloo Kid, a 64-bit support was added! This was a move to avoid a certain ‘32-bit apocalypse’. You will have to admit that this was indeed a pretty wise step to take!

Do note that the 12 new levels now added, will eventually keep players going for a while. This brings the total to 96 and platformer fans will certainly be thrilled with the treat.
