Can Bubble build Mobile App Games?

Hi - I’m new to Bubble and learning about its capability. I would greatly appreciate your advice and feedback.

Can Bubble build mobile app games? I’ve done a search and can’t seem to find any examples. Are there examples of mobile app games that were built with Bubble?

I would like to build a game that is a cross between Pinterest and Lumosity ([www.lumosity.com). The app would allow users to create boards and upload pictures (like pinterest). Then, the uploaded pictures would be used as content in a variety of games (like Lumosity). For example, the user would upload photos and then those photos would be used in a variety of memory games (like matching pairs of photos or memorizing a sequence of photos, etc.) . Does Bubble have the features/functionality/capability to build this? Thanks.

I actually created a scavenger hunt game in an hour, right before a party we had. We were looking for games to play on Zoom, with a group of friends, and had this idea. You can check it out if you want. www.dieasparagus.com

Basically as a host you take pictures of, let’s say an Apple :apple:. Then under the description you say, “Something Red”. Then add more items, the funnier the better. A good amount is 10, from my experience. Then you copy the link to message it to your friends. Once they sign in, they will see a “Waiting for host…” message. Then once you see they are all signed in, you press ‘Start Game’ and it will do the count down and send you to the results page to watch the action ‘live’. You will see each picture as they upload and it will tell you who is in first place. When each player finishes playing the game, it will take them to the results page as well. It’s hilarious :rofl: to see the results and talk about it on Zoom with your friends. I normally share my screen as the host on Zoom as they play so anyone that doesn’t want to play, or just the host can have something to watch while your friends run around their homes like crazy trying to be the fastest. You can also be an ‘announcer’ and announce who is in the lead during the game. We had a blast!

I hope that gives you some idea of what you can do. This was a super simple game. You can do a lot more with Bubble than just this.

Yes, Bubble can do those things.

Hope that helps! :blush:

Thanks J805 for your feedback. Thanks pretty amazing you created the game in an hour and got it working with zoom. The game sounds like fun and I can see its hilarity when playing with friends online!

I would appreciate any thoughts/suggestions on tutorial, tools, etc. to get me started. Thanks again J805!

bro I have experience in creating mobile games and if you have a well-constructed plan
if you know exactly how your game should look, write to me, I will help with the game engine

I would suggest getting it down on paper first. Get an idea of how it should look and work. Also, what the workflows of each button or action should do. Get a plan together.

Create a plan for the database. How everything is going to connect.

The start putting things together in Bubble. Just start designing to get going. Don’t overthink it too much or you might never start. The point is to just start. :blush:

Once you get stuck you can search here on the forum for answers. Use the Bubble reference or manual. There are other resources like my site that have video tutorials and tips. Also if you want help on your specific project, you can book a session with me if you want to get paid help. Otherwise, if you get stuck and want free help you can post here and we will try to help when we have some spare time.

Hope that can get you started in the right direction a bit. This is just a very summarized plan/idea. :blush:

Hi . I hope all is well.

When building the games are u using bubble or are u using another platform?

@anthonycarlitochamba I’m actually curious too. :blush:

I was able to make a Zelda like game in Bubble. It was pretty cool.

I really wish I understood portugués. I feel like I would learn something from this video that I was struggling to do in my game. :blush:

I need to learn more languages. Two is not enough.

Thanks for sharing!

You can translate the subtitles

I tried. :cry: For some reason it’s not working. Only the Portuguese subtitles work. Maybe I’m doing something wrong? There are only three options for me.

Off
Auto
Portuguese

I tried Auto and it doesn’t show anything.

I am actually building a government and economic rp/sim style game using bubble exclusively. People can join countries and earn positions start a business and run the country writing their own act, bills, and so on. Each country has it’s own economic structure and goal is to provide for their country and build it’s economy or run it like a dictator. So it’s both a sim and an experiment. It won’t be available for a while I work on every so often when I am not working on my actually projects but it helps with teaching my self the functionality of bubble and how the systems work to properly run the sim. I am also thinking of adding a full market place where you can use two different currencies either ingame or USD to import resources and so on even import more currency from other countries. This is an ongoing project but I will probably start a instagram or FB page to post about the development and updates before launch and gain a small following before it all gets set up. The using actual currency to purchase resources may not be implemented at first just to have a general game out. It also won’t be easy because I am trying to create a full supply and demand system that citizens will need to things are not needs things. Also there was going to be individual currency systems for each country but am changing it to just one and the value of the currency is both added by the global economy and national economy. I think I am trying to say is, if you are an economy need you’d like it, if not you would probably still think it is cool and shows the feet bubble can go. I am very proud of the what bubble has create for their software, very expansive for a no code system. The only thing that is next is adding a visual development system for making things like games even just 2D and boom you have a huge customer base that will flood in and start using the software. won’t be easy to develop for the company but once done it will be easy to create games and grow the bubble community huge. Just a little idea that came up. But I like what we have so far. Good job to everyone!

Hey guys, this and many other videos are translated, don’t forget to take a look. and remembering do not forget to subscribe to give that strength !! :wave:

do you guys make games here?

For those of you that make games here, do you get to monetize it? I’m new here, so I don’t understand the kind of games you make. There might be for fun or for making money. If it’s for cash, someone should let me know, please. Ik there are other ways to make money through games, but they require much work, honestly. Like being a professional gamer through YouTube or even twitch or so many different ways. There is a list that I just finished reading. Here’s the link to the list; https://yourmoneygeek.com/how-to-make-money-playing-video-games/. And so, the number of ways to make money through the game is uncountable, but they all require lots of effort.
