You will need the help of our Simon’s Cat Pop Time cheats, tips and tricks if you want to get three stars on all of them!
1. The Scoring Breakdown
Since your goal is to get three stars for each level, you should take time to know how you earn points in the game. Earning more points in each level will help you get more stars. Knowing how these points are awarded will help you prioritize certain moves over others. Check out the list below for a better understanding of the point system.
Bubble Popping – Each bubble you pop will reward you with 10 points. Since you need at least three of the same color to make a match, the minimum number of points you get is 30 points. The more bubbles you pop in a single move, the more points you earn.
Score Multiplier – Your starting multiplier is 2. That means the points you get for popping bubbles is multiplied by 2. This multiplier increases by one whenever you pop bubbles. That means you can easily raise the number of points you earn per move by making consecutive match. If you make a move that does not result in a match, your multiplier is rest to 2.
Falling Bubbles – When you make a match and pop bubbles that are higher on the board, the ones below it will fall to the ground. Fallen bubbles are worth 20 points each, so they are not completely wasted.
Trapped Creatures – Popping a bubble with a creature trapped inside will reward you with 500 points.
2. Look For The Right Target
Before you start shooting, check out the board for large clusters of same-colored bubbles or for trapped creatures. If you play your cards right, you should be able to raise your multiplier first by popping a few small bubble clusters before going for major points. For example, if you see a trapped creature that can easily be set free, you can opt to make a few matches first to increase your multiplier before aiming for that 500-point bonus. That way, you can multiply those 500 points by a lot. Make sure you don’t miss out on freeing any of the creatures, though. You might end up focusing too much on raising multipliers that you forget to pop the bubble traps later on.
3. Use Your Power Ups Wisely
There are several power ups available for you to use. Since these are not unlimited, make sure you use them only when you stand to gain a lot of points. Look for large bubble clusters to use your power ups on in order to maximize your score. You can even combine two or three power ups in order to clear several bubbles at the same time.
4. How To Hit Tricky Angles
If you want to hit bubbles that are higher up the board but there are other bubbles in the way, you could try some bank shots. To do this, you just need to aim at the walls to make the bubble bounce off at an angle. It takes a bit of practice to master the aim. Think of it the same way you would make a cue ball bounce off the sides of the table. You could spend some coins to buy the Owl Vision booster that would help you see the exact path your bubble would take, but it’s really just best if you take time to practice your bank shots.
5. Before You Release The Mouse
Jazz has a clockwork mouse that can remove the top line of the bubbles. That means all the bubbles below will fall to the ground, earning you 20 points apiece. While that sounds like a great way to earn points, you may want to hold off a bit before unleashing the mouse. Keep in mind that you will need to make a few consecutive matches in order to increase your multiplier. Try to raise the multiplier as high as you can before using Jazz’s mouse in order to get the most points out of the falling bubbles.
