BlastBall MAX is a challenging new game that forces players to think on their toes to solve ever-changing challenges.
Developed by Monkube Ltd., it’s currently available for $2.99 through the iTunes Store.
BlastBall MAX is a puzzle game that will delight users of all skill levels.
As indicated by its name, BlastBall MAX challenges players to get at least five similarly colored balls in a row in order to “blast” them and receive points.
However, doing this seemingly simple task is easier said than done, as twists to the game include placing balls, sliding and rotating tiles, and strategizing how to use special balls with their particular powers. New players to the game are treated to a set of simple instructions to guide them.
I found the level of gameplay to be appropriately challenging; the app got progressively more complex the further I moved through it.
As a whole, BlastBall MAX offers puzzle-lovers a fun, new challenging app to master.
While it probably won’t appeal to anyone who prefers fast-paced, time sensitive puzzles, BlastBall MAX will definitely be loved by anyone who appreciates less stressful, slower-paced thinking games.
Appearance and Layout:
This app features a clean, user-friendly screen at all times. Graphics are simple but appropriate, and the instructions are always provided in easily legible fonts, even on smaller screens.
BlastBall’s color scheme is bright but not blinding, and the in-app animations are perfectly pleasing as well. “Blasting” balls sets off a satisfying chain of reactions, and once you’ve figured out how to use the different balls/powers wisely, you’ll find yourself entertained by even more fun little animations.
Overall, the appearance of BlastBall MAX is just as great as its gameplay; both aspects of this game will leave players well satisfied.
As mentioned previously, BlastBall MAX can be purchased for $2.99 through the iTunes Store. While this game definitely features great challenges and equally awesome graphics, this price still seems a little steep, particularly when considering the many “free” puzzle games currently in the iTunes Store today.
Even though BlastBall MAX doesn’t have any in-app advertisements cluttering up your screen or interrupting your games, we’d like to see the price come down a bit.
This would no doubt drive even greater uptake than this well designed and implemented puzzler has already has enjoyed. After playing it we can honestly say it’s worth every penny but the fact is it’s hard for most to purchase a game for a few bucks over trying out other less expensive options.
BlastBall MAX iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
