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

Ease of Play

The technique of blasting items to move them in certain directions is a unique one that will take some time to really learn well, but once its nuances are mastered, the game is relatively simple. Challenges do get harder, though, as players progress through the game.


To solve these puzzles, you have to move the Moki creatures to the finish line by strategically placing bombs on the board and blasting the little guys where you want them to go. The bombs do not kill the Moki; they only move them. However, the Moki will shout as they fly through the air, and if you don't get them to the goal, they will look a bit worse for wear (one eye closed, a frowny mouth, possibly some smoldering flames).

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that iBlast Moki is a puzzle game with a unique method for moving cute, round creatures through mazes -- by planting bombs to blast the Moki in the directions the player wants them to move. The Moki monsters are generally sleeping before the player blasts them, so they wake up shouting as they fly through the air. And if you don't manage to get them to the goal, they do look a little banged up from the ordeal. However, the look and feel of the whole thing is more mischievous than violent. It's a strategy game with a subversive streak.

Is it any good?

iBLAST MOKI fits into the ever-increasing strategy game subgenre that requires a player to move cute creatures to the exit of an obstacle-filled level. However, its novel -- yet questionable -- method for moving those creatures is unexpectedly different. Figuring out the optimal placement of bombs and the best trajectory for the Moki to fly presents a new kind of challenge for these games. This is a cute, colorful puzzle game that requires a whole new type of thinking.
