Bubble Witch Saga Tips and Tricks

Updated on June 10, 2013
Anurag2008 profile image

Anurag loves playing video games. His guides and listicles revolve around popular iOS, Android, PC and console games.

Bubble Witch Saga is a fun bubble shooting game with a twist. You will shoot down bubbles in a dark forest and while doing this collect delicious potions and hit down spiders to earn points. You will need to match bubbles to keep the witches’ cauldron alive. To join a group of witches, you will need to clear levels, collect magic potions and earn stars.

This Facebook bubble shooter game has over 70 fun-filled levels (there will be more levels soon). There’s a map that guides players through different levels. In each level, you will have to clear the screen by shooting down all bubbles. You will have to aim and target three or more bubbles of the same color. Hitting them will make those colorful bubbles fall into the witch’s cauldron and turn into magic potions. You can obtain these potions and in order to do so, complete levels and earn stars.

How to Play?

Make sure you shoot all bubbles. If you fail to do so, you lose a life. Of course you can get extra lives, but then you will have to spend your Facebook credits. A much simpler way is to ask your Facebook friends to restore your lives.

The game also allows players to buy in-game coins. These coins can then be used to play bonus levels and purchase special potions. This well means that players won’t have to add friends. However, I would add friends then buy these premium coins. Adding friends can be a good choice because it is free. Here are some more Bubble Witch Saga tips and tricks that might help you go past difficult levels and earn stars:

(Update: Exciting news for all Bubble Gamers - check out the last comment posted by Lyn Puddlepuff)

Which Bubble Witch Saga Level is the Toughest to Play?

See results

Tips and Tricks

1. You should score high in every level. Scoring high will help you earn stars. Players usually earn one, two or three stars based on the score they achieve in each level. Depending on the number of stars earned, players unlock power-ups and new levels.

2. There will be desperate times when you have only one life left. In such circumstances, it is imperative that you play easy stages. Remember that you will have to beat the easy stages to avoid losing energy. Playing hard stages with just one life left would be quite foolish in my opinion. Just play those easy levels, earn stars and coins and use them to buy power-ups. In this way, you can take on the difficult stages once you’re ready.

3. If you have friends on Facebook, ask for more lives. You will be notified when your friends send you life. They will be saved into your account. Sometimes, you might get lives more than the limit per level. For example, if the life limit is 5 and you get 8 lives from your friends, then you can use only 5 lives because of the upper limit. But as soon as you complete a few levels, the limit will increase to 6 or probably 7. To get more lives, you will have to unlock them by earning stars.

4. Avoid falling prey to any cheat or hack that promises you more coins, stars or any other goodies. Patience, a keen eye for bubbles and clever use of stars and potions is the key.

5. Some players keep on posting questions on getting past level 43 or 55. Well, the solution for their problem is simple – keep on bursting bubbles. There’s no shortcut to success, of course you can buy or unlock some power-ups to make things a bit easy.

6. New tip: In the recent levels added to the game, you will find some colorful bubbles encrusted inside crystals. To break the crystals, all you have to do is shoot the adjacent bubbles (the ones which aren’t encased by the crystals). Once the crystals get crushed, you can see the color of the bubbles. This aspect makes gameplay difficult, yet interesting.

7. New Tip: Hey Bubble gamers, check out the video below to get a visual walkthrough of level 115.

8. New Tip: Also, check out the Level 55 video walkthrough and hints in the More Tips section.

Guide to Charms

Charms are special power-ups that provide additional help for a short period of time. In Bubble Witch Saga, there are plenty of charms to buy and use. The image below provides information about each charm and explains what each of them is used for:

More Tips

  • You can unbolt the Rainbow Ball once you gather at least 130 stars
  • On the top left hand corner of the map, you will find the Charms shop. Click on this button to check what new charms and goodies Wilbur the one-eyed cat has to offer.
  • Buy the Charm of Precision charm to quickly and easily burst down bubbles. This charm improves your bubble aim, especially when shooting in angles by the way of the wall. You will have to reach level 19 to unlock this item. You can then buy this charm for 119 FB credits. (thanks Lynn)
  • I repeat, make sure you gather more stars to unlock magic potions. The best way is to replay all completed levels. This gives you more chances to collect stars and unlock these potions.

Any Suggestions?

I will update this hub with more tips and tricks, so please bookmark this hub. Surely, you can share your own stuff and help players unlock more goodies, levels, magic potions and earn stars. If you have any suggestions or questions, then do leave a comment and I or my friends and readers will answer them.

    You have to invite your Facebook Friends to send you a ticket to unlock the next episode to continue playing the Saga. If you have an iPhone that is jailbroken (or non-jailbroken but you have iFunbox or some other file manager that'll allow you to look at the files), there is an EASY fix for this where each episode automatically unlocks for you after completion. I found this looking through the files for BWS.

    P.S. Sorry Android people. Can't seem to figure out how to view BWS file via your file manager.

    Here's the video I posted to YouTube to unlock the episode & get unlimited lives: http://youtu.be/wQwPXi0GmA8

    Why is there such a long delay between certain levels. For example I completed level 225 and I've waited days and days for level 226. In the meantime I play eternal aisles and the daily, but those stars don't count. Why the delay? Since there are no spells to unlock, are there anyway to speed it up?

    Lynn Puddlepuff 4 years ago

    It's been a long time since I've checked in here - but I am now on level 190 - and there's still more content ahead of me to unlock.

    I rarely use my potions unless there's no other way to get a big enough score to get at least one star without using them - that way when I do get stuck on a level I know I'll have enough bonus points to use them. (The 4 jars I have cost 6500 to use all at once and that can deplete your points really fast!)

    The absolute hardest set of games was between 160 and 175 - you just need to keep replaying until you get the right combination of balls to win the round.

    This game has been worth the time and the few $ spent on potions and charms (I couldn't do this without the charm fo precision and the charm of scrolling up) and here's a tip for you...

    At the beginning of the round scroll up once and hit print screen - use whatever rendering/photochop/paint program you have to make a .jpg out of it and put it side by side on your computer screen - then you will always know if there's a bomb waiting above and which colours you'll need to get around it :)

    Happoy bubble bursting!

    Level 6 on eternal isles you have to use the potion who unlocks 3 ceiling holes and hit only one half so the other half falls at the end giving points to earn a star.

    I've been stuck on level 138 for about 3 weeks now when it usually only takes me a couple of days, at best, to complete a level. I don't use any of the special charms other than the ones you earn by collecting stars. Which means I only have the (4). The 1st one is the "Golden Spiders" of course, then there's the 2nd, "Extra Bubbles" then the 3rd, "Extra Ceiling Holes" and the last one, the 4th, is the "Rainbow Bubble". My problem with this game is how it will deliberately NOT give you the bubbles you might need even after consecutively giving you the same color bubble after 6 or 7 rotations. Even with the help of the "Rainbow Bubble" unless the game cooperates with you, instead of trying to FORCE you to buy the little extra potions, it's damn near impossible to pass level 138. So if anyone knows the sequence to the bubble color change as they appear and if there's a way to manipulate how they show up by what you use or play I would appreciate any advice you may have.

    Charms aren't necessary 5 years ago

    It's defnitely unecessary to buy charms, although they would make playing easier. Not everybody wants to sell their email address to advertisers or pay real life money to get ahead in a game. I'm up to level 145 and haven't bought any charms. It's possible to trace the star trail to the edge of the playfield in Paint, then copypaste and flip a piece of the line to see where it would lead. You can use landmarks like towers or tree branches to tell you where to put your cursor.

    natalie make sure you got the rainbow bubble and the 7 extra bubbles, this will give you the edge, now make sure you clear most of the bubbles before you hit the chain, when the chain break there are few bombs on each side try to stop the bombs from ticking down by putting the bubbles there, now try burst the bubble on left and right side as you go up but remember you do have the rainbow bubble to use which help a lot, as you go up, you will notice questions mark bubbles, now it up to you if you want to burst them at your own risk but i would not bother because nine out of ten it will be bombs, and then its nightmare, so want you get to the ceiling you should do it but i find the rainbow and extra bubbles would help, so i hope this help you

    @Lynne - stuck on the level itself (game play) or stuck unlocking the next map in the game?

    To complete a level just keep trying different strategies (only focus on one side? or straight up the middle? use different potions?)You'll eventually clear it.

    To unlock new map sections there are only two options - getting 3 friends to help or using facebook credits ($1.20)
