What's it about?
As with most endless runner/jumper games, there's really not much of a story in SUPER SLIME BLITZ - GUMBALL ENDLESS ARCADE CLIMBER. You'll hop from ledge to ledge, breaking down blocks in your way and dodging slime that occasionally shoots across the screen at a fairly slow pace. Along the way, you'll collect coins and keys, which can be used to unlock additional characters and power-ups. When you don't complete a level, you can watch an ad to continue or you'll have to start over.
Is it any good?
Though you're not going to find anything revolutionary in this game, kids likely will love the familiar characters, but ads abound. Super Slime Blitz - Gumball Endless Arcade Climber is a fine game -- and one that's well-suited for kids, if you don't mind them watching ads -- but if you've played a couple examples of this sort of title, you already know what you're getting into. Dodge obstacles, break blocks to create a platform to jump onto, and upgrade your character or buy power-ups when you've collected enough coins. It's a solid time-waster that will entertain, but parents may want to talk through the use of ads as incentives to help kids get more media-savvy.
