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.
