A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

The controls are easy to grasp -- drag the available pieces from the top and arrange them on the screen. Tap a piece to rotate it clockwise. There's a Start/Stop button in the top corner, as well as a menu to return to the selection screen or reset a level. However, it can be difficult to move a piece.

Consumerism

On the options screen there is a link to contact the developers, which takes you to an email form on their website. There is no branding in the app otherwise.

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.
