Bubble Shooter Candy Wheel is a timed bubble-popping game. It features various round-cornered candies instead of traditional bubbles arranged around a wheel that rotates in front of an outdoor scene candies in bokeh perspective falling through the sky. The player must pop and collect all candies as quickly as possible before time runs out.
Unlike the majority of bubble-popping games, the player doesn't attempt to earn the highest score from scratch. Instead, they receive 10,000 points to start. The game reduces this number as time passes. The player's goal is to pop the candies in sets of three or more pieces until no more remain on the field before they lose all their points.
The player shoots candy projectiles at the rotating candy wheel using an arrow shooter. They can pop straight horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines and groups of matching candies. Any connected pieces underneath a set, no matter the type, also pop via avalanche mechanics.
Bubble Shooter Candy Wheel makes the wheel rotate faster as time increases and the number of candies decreases. If the player is willing to watch advertisement videos, they can temporarily use two boosters to improve their gameplay. They can use the Go Candy booster to eliminate one type of candy by replacing it with another type. They can use the Stop Time booster to provide them with 60 seconds of penalty-free shooting that has no impact on their score.
