A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn principles of physics like gravity, velocity, and trajectory. The levels become increasingly challenging, but kids can replay a level as many times as needed. Kids can unlock heavier balls, too, to experiment with how mass impacts momentum. Blosics is a fun physics puzzler that gives kids plenty of chances to strategize and test their hypotheses.

Ease of Play

The game offers two controls schemes, and players can choose the one that's easier for them and switch at any time. Levels require planning and occasionally timing to complete. 

Violence & Scariness

The app involves shooting balls at block formations, but it is not depicted in a violent manner.

What's it about?

In this physics-based puzzler, players earn points by shooting balls at block formations to get rid of as many blocks as possible. BLOSICS doesn't have the gimmicks or backstory of similar games, but it does offer increasingly challenging levels that introduce more complicated physics, Like underwater levels or slippery icy surfaces. Kids can choose their shooting style, either a slingshot style or a pool-cue style and can change the style at any point. As kids unlock different ball sizes, they can change their ball based on their strategy as well.

Is it any good?

Blosics doesn't have as much character as other physics puzzlers like Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, or Cover Orange, but its clever game design and generous number of levels (120 and counting) make up for that. The levels span four episodes with unique scenery and obstacles; the Dive Underwater episode, for example, features underwater currents that can carry objects in unexpected directions. Players also unlock 13 different balls, each with unique properties.

There's no one way to complete a level in Blosics, which is a large part of the game's appeal. Players earn points for each block knocked over, but lose points for launching balls or knocking over the "wrong" blocks, so a lot of strategy is required for players to make sure they finish with enough points to advance. This open-endedness, combined with the creativity of the levels, makes Blosics a great choice for fans of physics puzzle games.
