What's it about?
Tap the play icon in the center of COLOR SWITCH's main page, choose your game mode, and then begin to tap the ball with one finger to move it upward and through the spinning obstacle shapes by matching the ball's color to the portion of the shape that it will touch when bounced higher. Use a lighter tap to hover the ball while waiting for the correct color, and tap harder to move the ball forward. Players can "shop" with points to change the shape of the ball and unlock challenges.
Is it any good?
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about the difference between being absorbed in a fun game like this and playing it compulsively. Why would the game maker give players "rewards" for coming back every 12 hours?
Talk about the highs and lows of this game, and use it as an opportunity to practice perseverance, acceptance, and laughing off frustrations. Play this game together, and let your kid see how you react to the excitement of making it through the levels and the frustration of crashing the ball into some of the obstacles.
