Bubble Birds 2 is the new sequel to the popular Bubble Birds. This edition brings with it the same bright colors and cute graphics that you loved in the original game, but packs in new designs, levels and characters to make the game at once more challenging and more fun!

The levels in green are available for you to play. You can pay with your coins to open the levels in yellow. The red ones are not available for you at the moment. If you make several successful shots, every next ones will bring you a bonus!

BlackBerry App Roundup - 50 copies of Bubble Birds 2 by XIMAD up for grabs!


Is it true u will give us a free Bold 9900 with every game of Bubble Birds u give away as well????

Their first Bubble Bird is ad supported and is free, wonder why their second cost money
Anyway, I would like to win one
. :)

i have bubble birds one and i love it! This Bubble birds 2 got to be amazing! Thank you CrackBerry for this chance of winning.

Well, the screenshots look good, I have a tour so I won't be able to experience the touchscreen play as of yet, but hopefully all that will change soon when the new BB's come out.......(when) plus i'm on u.s. cellular's time so.............. anyway, i would be very happy to get the free app.....and would play it everyday just to see the pro's and cons. I downloaded part one, but it was the trial wich was ad supported, so the screen was quite cluttered. Definitely looking forward to what's been changed/upgraded

I have loved my bubble birds 1!! Kinda lame that it wasn't a free upgrade or at least a discount but I am sure I'd love the second version too :D

It is hard for BB smartphone to has a funny games on it. Bubble birds is one of it! I like it~great! I can spend my boring time with this good app!

Yea looks like a fun game, even if I don't wint will probably drop the $0.99 for it...but free is always better!

I'm feelin a little bubbly with this one :-) yes I know corny, but whatever!
Thanks in advance CrackBerry and XIMAD!
