Simple puzzle game is fun but can get repetitive.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
The simple concept of guiding a box from one end of a maze to the other is universally accessible. Most players will have no difficulty with the game's basic controls, however the level of difficulty increases as the game progresses, making the later mazes challenging but still accessible.
Violence & Scariness
Players need to navigate a myriad obstacles and hazards, some of which can cause the box to explode.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that in Kona's Crate, players tap on the touch screen to guide a floating box through various labyrinth-like mazes. The goal is to successfully guide the box from point A to point B without hitting any of the hazards along the way, in order to deliver the box to its rightful recipient. The box will explode if it hits certain hazards; that is the only violent content in the game. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.

Is It Any Good?
KONA'S CRATE has a very simple concept and control system, and it is a repetitive experience. However, because of the unique graphical style and creative idea -- using a box as the "main character" -- it is compelling enough to provide players with a short burst of enjoyment. The touch-screen controls are well executed and failure to complete a level is more likely to result in a desire to try again than it is to result in frustration. It's not the most compelling mobile puzzle game, but it's not bad either.
