iBlast Moki 2

(i)

 

Explosive puzzle game is more impish than violent.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

The game's tutorials can be confusing, as the Spartan visual diagrams aren't too helpful. The game is very hard at times, but its difficulty ramps up at a reasonable level. 

Violence & scariness

The Mokis are moved through the puzzles by setting off a series of bombs. Some explode, some coat the ground with paint, some do other things. But the Mokis are never injured and make happy sounds as they zoom across the landscape.

Players are able to unlock all levels via in-app purchase and can use "Moki coins" (earned by completing worlds or, again, via in-app purchase) to view the solutions to difficult puzzles.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that iBlast Moki 2 is the sequel to a popular physics-based puzzle game that uses bombs to blast cute creatures in the direction you want them to move. It's admittedly a violent way to travel, but the Mokis don't seem to mind, and it's done generally for comedic effect. The game liberally uses in-app purchases to open up worlds or offer solutions to the puzzles, though, something many gamers may think is free, and features some very tough puzzles.

QUALITY

iBlast Moki 2 picks up right where its predecessor left off, but rather than being just a continuation of an older game, it offers new twists and improves upon the past. It's familiar to veteran players, but newcomers are likely to struggle somewhat at first, since the in-game tutorials don't really offer easy-to-understand instructions on how to work the game. Once you figure it out, though, you'll have fun. We could do without the in-app purchases, especially those that show how others have solved the puzzles. Offering user-generated content like that is helpful for people who are stuck, but charging to show videos of other people's gameplay seems cheap. It's not an easy game, but by the time the difficulty ramps up, you'll have a good grasp of the controls and how to play. From there, your success all depends on how strong your puzzle-solving skills are.
