Don't Waste Your Money on the "Ad Free" Version

My kids love this game but I don't like the ads. We haven't seen anything inappropriate yet, but they are unpredictable and I don't trust that all the ads will be "kid friendly". Based on my worries, I decided to go ahead and spend the $3.99 to get the ad-free version but... my kids are still seeing ads! What!? Don't make the same mistake I did. Save your money and just skip this app if you're worried about ad content.

Frustrating gameplay and too many ads!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Though it's simple to play, this inventive arcade game gets increasingly complex and challenging, which makes it fun and addictive though occasionally frustrating. By sliding your finger left and right, you move a ball the same way as it navigates a narrow path that's floating in midair and filled with all sorts of hazards, including barriers that cause the ball to pop, lasers that will disintegrate it, and hammers that will smash it to bits. All together, these simple but increasingly complicated mechanics make for a fun and addictive arcade game that will delight most. For younger kids especially, it may be worth buying unlimited balls, since their learning curve may be steeper and their patience shallower.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
