Part 6 of our Balance Games Playthrough shifted over to the river for Balance Bubble:

Wii Fit Plus Balance Games Playthrough Part 6: Balance Bubble

Balance Bubble

The Balance Bubble is a really enjoyable game, and was often a favorite amongst Wii Fit purchasers.  Testament to the popularity of the exercise is that Wii Fit Plus created a Balance Bubble Plus activity in the Training Plus section.

This one just requires the Balance Board.  You lean forward to control your speed, just level out to 50/50 to remain stationary.  The challenge of course comes from the banks of the river and of course, bees!  You have to shift left and right to avoid the shore line walls and juts.  When bees show up you have to either rush through them, dodge them, or slow down and let them pass.

The issue then becomes how to pace yourself to get a good score.  If you make it to the edge of the finish line it won't be a a good score.  In order to get a decent score you have to cross the finish line.

I had never finished the Beginner version with a 4-Star Ranking, but with a little persistence it came to fruition as we registered a time of 29.43 seconds! 

We follow up the Beginner level with Advanced.  It is a bit more challenging as the bees are out in full force.  I wasn't able to 4-Star it, but plan to after the playthrough wraps up.  The most difficult part is having speed built up to get past the last bee, which guards the finish line.  I never got it done in this limited playthrough (recorded it right before leaving on vacation).  If you wait, you can get across the finish line just fine, but it won't be fast enough for the 4-Star Ranking.

This is a great activity and a true staple of Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus.  You will get a little bit of a workout in while improving your coordination and balance.
