Windows Phone Game Review: Funny Bounce

Funny Bounce for Windows Phone

Here's a short take on a decent little game for your Windows Phone. Funny Bounce is from AE Mobile who also developed Funny Jump. I mention this because Funny Bounce features the same tennis ball like character Roundy.

With Funny Bounce, Roundy is jumping his way up the screen from platform to platform, dodging dangers and seeing how high he can go. Yep, it's a jumper game that really isn't that much different from any other jumper game for your Windows Phone.

You control Roundy by tilting your phone left or right to control the direction of his (or is it her) jumps. Platforms can be stationary, move about the screen, fall apart when you land on them and shrink unexpectedly. Dangers include a pesky hedgehog, rocks, banana peels and a tornado. To help Roundy along you do have bonus items such as a helmet to protect him and a balloon to carry him up the screen.

Funny Bounce is your typical jumper game but there's something about Funny Bounce that gives the game a bit of appeal and slight addictive quality. Funny Bounce has nice graphics, good sound effects and the expressions on Roundy as he jumps up the screen or falls to end the game give the game a bit of character.  And that might be the thing gives the game its appeal. I found myself coming back to the game to catch those expressions and along the way to see how far I could jump.

The only downside to the game is that in the Marketplace description there is mention of two game modes, bounce platform and silver coin mode. The version installed on my Windows Phone only had one game mode, bounce platform. This could be an oversight by the developer or a sign of what's in store with the next update to Funny Bounce.

All in all, I found Funny Bounce to be an entertaining jumper game for your Windows Phone. Funny Bounce is a nice game to pass short bits of time with and it has an intangible quality that draws you back to the game.

Funny Bounce is a free, ad supported game for your Windows Phone and you can find it here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
