What's it about?
In LOVE BALLS, you have to draw a line on the screen to help two balls come together. These balls are in love, and while this doesn't have a story, it might help if you think of them as Romeball and Julisphere, star-crossed lovers who need your help overcoming the obstacles in their life that prevent them from being as one. Can you bypass the valleys, spikes, and other environmental hazards to reunite them?
Is it any good?
Alas, this fun mobile puzzle game is hampered by an over-abundance of ads. In Love Balls, you have to help two balls get together because they're in love -- and if two balls can't find love in this crazy, mixed-up world, what hope do any of us have? To do this, you have to use your finger or a stylus to draw a line on the screen. Hopefully, that line will send one or both balls moving toward each other and give them a pathway to togetherness -- or just prevent them from falling off the screen after you send them on their way.
Of course, the law of gravity applies here. But while this game can get really clever (and be really difficult to figure out), it can be equally annoying if you don't spring for the ad-free version. Otherwise you have to deal with the constant banner ads along the bottom of the screen and the full-screen ads that pop up randomly after you complete a level. It really does get annoying after a while. But if you can deal with it -- or are willing to spring for the ad-free version -- you'll find Love Balls to be a smart puzzle game that isn't nearly as childish as its name suggests.
