What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Bubble Ball is a physics-based puzzle game about getting the ball to the goal using the available parts. The game requires some puzzle-solving skills, but most of the levels will be solvable by older children. The only minor concern is the "contact us" screen, which would allow a user to send an email to the developer, but it's optional and would also require inputting an email address by hand.

Is it any good?
BUBBLE BALL is a physics puzzler about getting the ball to the checkered flag goal, using the tools provided. With 21 levels, the game won't take too long to solve -- most of the solutions are fairly obvious and only a few will require a bit of trial and error to get the placement just right. The most impressive feature of the game is that it was developed and coded by a 14-year-old, which shows innovation and initiative. However, as a puzzle app it won't present much of a challenge to older players, and the graphics and interface are rudimentary.
