Sometimes the simplest ideas make for the most fun experiences, like this clever puzzle game. Big Big Baller takes the core game mechanic of Katamari Damacy (roll over stuff with a ball and make it as big as possible) and adds a friendly competitive element to it. The result is a family-friendly, insanely addictive multiplayer game. There's no interaction between players aside from the game itself, so parents don't need to worry about inappropriate contact. Plus, the game rounds are short, so it's easy to find a break point. And the game offers a mode where squashing other players isn't the point of the game.

About the only downside to Big Big Baller is the frequency and mandatory nature of the video ads. They're distracting and take you out of the happy place you'll be in while you're in the midst of playing the game. There's no real way around this, making it a necessary evil. Fortunately, it's not enough to detract from Big Big Baller's strengths. If you're looking for a friendly puzzler, check this game out.
