The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Bayo Bongo is a fast-paced puzzle game in which players tap like-colored blocks to clear them from the board and collect coins as they drop to the bottom of the screen. Unlike many other tile-matching puzzle games, the blocks don't have to be next to each other to be cleared. High scores can be posted on online leaderboards or shared on Facebook.
Is it any good?
BAYO BONGO is easy to learn and doesn't require a whole lot of finesse to play, but it's still quite a challenge. If time runs out, it's Game Over, and the player goes back to the beginning. The goal is to see how high of a score you can rack up, and results can be shared online and through Facebook. The game lacks even the faintest whiff of a backstory, and its unique mechanics eventually prove a bit thin, but the brisk arcade-style pace keeps it from getting truly stale. The game's colorful presentation and over-the-top sound effects add to its appeal.
