Lanterns are power-ups that can pop multiple bubbles at once. Each level will have different lanterns available to use depending on the difficulty. A lantern is ready to use once it glows. You can either refill a lantern’s light by successfully popping bubbles or by using Coins to automatically make it glow. Once you tap on a glowing lantern, it will replace your current bubble and its power will activate after you shoot.
