App Review: GloBall by Robot Super Brain
In the last month since its release in the iTunes App Store, Globall by Robot Super Brain has quickly increased in popularity. It now holds the #20 spot in the Top 100 Paid Apps. So, I decided that I would take a look and see what all the fuss was about.
The idea behind GloBall is simple. You must use the glowing ball on the screen to get rid of all the colored squares in each level. Once all of the colored squares are gone, the level is complete. Accomplishing this task is not as easy as it sounds. To move the GloBall around, simply lay your device flat and then tilt it in the direction you want the ball to go. The ball appears to roll down in the direction that gravity would pull it. However, the GloBall also bounces off objects. This bouncy property of the ball took a little getting used to for me.
There are also other pitfalls to watch out for as you roll around each level. There are spikes that will pop your GloBall and enemies that will try to come get you. You must avoid these or you may lose a ball. You can also earn an extra ball by collecting the gold coins throughout the levels. Once you get 25 of these coins, you earn an extra ball. There are 43 levels to play. Each time you pass a level, you unlock the next one. As with many other games, you can submit your high scores and use your current location to see how your scores match up with people near and far. GloBall is addicting fun for all ages.
GloBall is $0.99 in the iTunes App Store.
