A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Flicking to launch the ball is a breeze. The alternative -- shaking and tilting the phone just so -- takes a lot more practice to master.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Scoring points wins tickets, which can be exchanged for virtual carnival prizes ranging from ice cream cones to flat-screen TVs.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this rendition of the carnival game is tremendous fun for everyone. It does connect to the Crystal Network which provides leaderboards with avatars shown, so you might want to choose not to participate in that sharing.

iffy for 2-16

why is the reason iffy for 2-16 because they don't know.

Is it any good?

Just like the real game, Skee-ball is hard to walk away from, but at least you're not shelling out money. The production values are high, with realistic surfaces, smooth animation, and convincing sound effects of a ball rolling on wood. The instant tallies and quick reloads keep you trying just one more time to score a better pocket. Competitor Ramp Champ has more bells and whistles, but Skee-ball has the authenticity gamers crave.
