Great puzzler, but with multiplayer, so use parent controls.

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

Ease of Play

Booooly plays very similarly to other "match three" puzzle games, like Collapse!, except its pieces are circular and always prone to shift or move. But the mechanic of tapping groups to remove them couldn't be simpler.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the match-three puzzle app Booooly is one of many game apps that can connect to the OpenFeint network, an online community for sharing high scores on leaderboards, posting game achievements, and (in Booooly's case) playing against live opponents. It also allows kids to engage in text chat and instant messaging with other players that they list as "friends." OpenFeint is not mandatory, so you can play the game without enabling the network connection. Common Sense Media does not recommend allowing kids or tweens to use OpenFeint without supervision.

Is it any good?

Booooly is unique among "match three" puzzle games (a genre in which players must create groups of three or more similar objects to eliminate them from the game board) in that its pieces are round. The cute, smiley-faced Booooly balls roll, bounce, and jam against one another as real balls would in a barrel. This creates a whole different kind of strategy for lining up and eliminating balls of the same color. Still, the game mechanic is simple enough for even very young children to grasp (which is not to say that older kids or adults won't enjoy the game either).
