Now moving toward the levels, in the initial levels, the game gives guidelines on setting up the objects, in the initial stage, the apparatus is to be set in that way so that the ball reach to the basket and on the way there are three stars, player has to set the objects with keeping stars position in mind so that when the ball going through the passage it takes all the three stars. As levels increase guidelines reduce and balloons come up in the game with the pair of scissors, player has to use the balloon in that direction through which after taking the stars, balloon reach to the edge of scissors and pop out.

Amazing Alex, decent VFX and SFX

The objects, locations and guidelines, all sketched fine and the animations in the game doesn’t even lag on the low-budget Androids having processor of 600MHz and the game runs smoothly even on the old Apple iPhone 3G. Animations such as bouncing of balls, balloon pop outs are just perfect. Audio effects are decent, during the play time the sound effects (SFX) almost become silent and during navigation the locations music triggers. Overall the sound and visualization is perfect.
