Inside Out Thought Bubbles Ads & Social Networks

There are ads in the Inside Out Thought Bubbles game, which is an aspect that some parents will want to know about. Here’s a primer on what is included in the game, so parents can decide if the options are OK, and how kids should handle ads and connectivity options. Disney Pixar advises,

  • social media links to connect with others
  • the option to accept push notifications to let you know when we have exciting updates like new content
  • links to online stores to purchase real products
  • registration to create or sign in using a Disney/an existing account
  • advertising for some third parties
  • as well as advertising for The Walt Disney Family of Companies

It is not surprising to see ads inside games or options to buy items, but parents need to make sure kids know how to treat these options.

Inside Out Thought Bubbles In App Purchases

Inside Out Thought Bubbles In App PurchasesLike most free to play games, there are Inside Out Thought Bubbles in app purchases that players can buy to get past harder levels and to unlock power ups. The purchases range from 99 cents up to $49.99 for a Gem Pack that delivers help to beat levels.

The option to spend nearly $50 in-game is a reason that parents should control n-app purchases with Family Sharing or discuss these options with their children.

After playing through the easy levels, many gamers may feel the need to buy a gem pack to get past a particularly tough level. iTunes user cornn1p writes,

“Addictive game but like a few others said before once you reach a certain level it’s impossible to win without spending money to buy gems. Maybe add a way to earn gems like other games do by viewing advertisements, etc. it’s just extremely frustrating to be stuck on the same level forever and have no way to beat it. Eventually this app will end up deleted just like the other games that make it impossible to play without spending lots of money.”

This is a fairly common complaint in free to play games.

Inside Out Thought Bubbles Power-ups

Inside Out Thought Bubbles Anger Power UpTo complete some harder levels gamers will need to use Inside Out Thought Bubbles Power-ups and powers. Each of the emotions has a power that they can use, and there are three other paid power ups that gamers can buy using gems, which the user must buy with real money.

  • Joy Power-up – Use this to clear any orbs of a color in a burst once charged up.
  • Sadness Power-up – Unlock at level 15 to turn all orbs in a line blue and knock off orbs below them.
  • Anger Power-up – Unlock at Level 51 to shoot a fireball through orbs in a straight line.
  • Line Power – 5 Gems Unlocked at Level 8 – Use this to extend your aiming line.
  • Rainbow Memory – 5 Gems Unlocked at Level 13 – Match all colors this orb hits.
  • Extra Choices – 5 Gems Unlocked at Level 19 – Adds tow more orbs to your launcher.

As you play through the four types of Inside Out Thought Bubbles levels, you’ll need to learn which of these power-ups work best in specific situations.

      How did you get past level 113? It’s so frustrating!

        I used Sadness for most levels, but had to use Joy for that one. It can be done, I made it through all the levels without making any purchases (I’m cheap that way.)

        I did notice on one level that the timing for the cannons would shift away from ideal if I played the level too long. I had to close it completely. When I played the next day it was back to normal. Just remember that half of the game is the luck of the draw on the colors and you may have to replay a few times to get what you need.

    I’ve just finished level 175 and now have to wait for more levels to be released. Didn’t spend anything on extra lives.. but there are some levels where you do need to use a special power (not the power ups). Generally though, it is a bit of luck of the draw but if you persist then you get a game where all the thought bubbles come in the order you need. Some levels require perfectly timed bubbles and perfectly directed shots. Can’t wait for more levels and for sure Fear is next up.. but I really really hope Bing Bong makes an appearance.

    Has anyone beat the “new” level 175?

    I’m currently waiting for new levels (finished through 237), and I’m going back and hitting “1 star” wins. I originally beat 175 with anger. Now it’s a “joy only” level, and I have played it at least 10-15 times. Can’t come close, and I don’t remember the level — I don’t always remember the exact strategy, but I usually remember playing it…

    • mike

      10/28/2015 at 3:09 pm

      OK, I got it… Like so many of the “tough” levels, you need the right “memory set” or you’ve lost before you even start. Once I got the colors I needed, the only trick is really to “go for yellow”, and use first “Joy’s powerup” quickly. Got a second powerup at the end, and even won with a couple of memories left over.

    Completing level 364 won’t save. I think this is the third time I’ve completed it followed by a few subsequent levels but it resets back to level 364. Is this a known issue? Nothing on the help page about it.
