Roll the Ball – Slide puzzle (Puzzle game for IOS)

Roll the ball is a puzzle game for the IOS that is free to download from the App store.

It’s a good brainteaser with a simple goal – that is to move the tiles to form a path to get the ball from the starting point to the goal.

Sounds too simple and easy? Well you might have to think again. Because the developer had installed different modes in the game to cater to player of different nature and levels. So be expected to slide lots of tiles just to reach your goals!

Let’s begin by exploring the different modes of play, for beginners, it’s advisable to start with the Classic or Star mode. They’re relatively simple and help you get the hang of things. Although, to be honest, the game is so easy to pick up that there is no need for that.

The difference between the Star and Classic mode is that in the Star mode, there are tiles with star and to get the stars, you’ll need to pass the ball through them. While in Classic mode, you get more stars if you use less moves.

The puzzles aren’t overly challenging in both modes and would be suitable even for young children to play. However, if you’re aiming for the perfect 3 stars then it might get a little tricky.

Moving mode is the most challenging one of all and you’ll need to get creative and exercise your brain a lot just to clear a level. In this mode, the ball will start moving after your move your first tile and you’re to move a tile to “carry” it in time or risk the ball “falling out” and it’ll be game over. This mode requires the player to be quick thinking. Getting 3 stars in this mode is extremely challenging and I find myself utilising most of my hints here.

Rotation mode is pretty much like the Classic mode but instead of just moving the tiles, there are some that you need to rotate them. This mode is my least favourite because I find it too similar to the Classic mode and I hardly play it.

You might think that the game will get repetitive and boring after a while but there are just so many unique levels in each modes that you could be playing for days or even weeks. In fact, I find the game very addictive. It just makes me want to keep trying for 3 stars. I’ve lost count of the times that I was actually planning to past some time but ended up playing for hours.

Although Roll the ball’s game play isn’t exactly original, it still provides enough challenge to keep the player entertained. The different game modes also make the game appealing to player of different levels – be it you’re a serious gamer looking for a challenge or someone who just play casually. And the best part of it is, the game is only slight over 160MB and won’t be taking up too much of your phone’s memory.

It is a game that I would recommend to puzzle lovers out there.

I give it a 8/10.

  1. Sounds like a fun game! I used to play a similar game before, but it was about water pipes. Thanks for sharing and I think it’;s a great idea that you are adding rating.
