Smartphones have modified our conception of video games. Some years ago, games only a hit if they had the best graphics possible and a really good plot. Nowadays, we manage to waste our time with silliest games that don't even have a decent story.
Making a ninja jump from platform to platform, sticking pens into a pineapple, building higher and higher towers, throwing knives at a tree... all these plots may sound stupid but each one of them appears in different games developed by Ketchapp, the number one casual video game development studio on both the Apple App Store and Google Play. After Spring Ninja, Pineapple Pen, Stack or Knife Hit, here comes Sky Ball.
Go as far as possible without falling off the edge
The game shows us a colorful 3D universe with scenarios full of narrow tracks and emptiness below them. We must make the ball advance along the tracks, jumping from one to another, covering the greatest distance as possible, without falling off the edge. Furthermore, on the tracks, we'll find diamonds to improve our ball and jumpers to increase the distance covered much easier. Sounds simple, doesn't it? But it's also very addictive.
Cover the longest distance as possible on the tracks and improve your ball.
Just like all the games from this studio, Sky Ball hasn't been developed with too many ambitions and isn't focused on getting the player glued to his screen for months. It only wants us to have fun during our free time when we haven't got anything better to do than playing on our phone: in the queue at the supermarket, on the bus or even on the toilet. Why? Because it's simple and addictive.
