A Parent’s Guide to Bouncemasters (App/Game)

Bouncemasters by Playgendary

Type: Action

Basic Plot/Idea: A love struck penguin gets help from his bat wielding friend to fly to the girl of his dreams.


Game Play: 4/5 Well Done: This game is a beautiful mixture of hilarious and cute. The player is a polar bear hitting a small penguin with a baseball bat (with his permission and encouragement) so that he can eventually get to the island of a girl penguin he likes. As you progress closer and closer to this island, you collect coins. Coins are then used to buy upgrades that increase how far you can hit your friend.

Graphics: 4/5 Well Done: Graphics are cartoon style, but detailed and adorable. They have a peppy, cheerful look and coloring that matches the theme of the game. The graphics also have variety, as the penguin travels to different lands, changing the background.

Music: 4/5 Well Done: Sound affects and music are just as happy as the graphics, as well as catchy., complete with cute penguin noises.

Overall: 4/5 Well Done: I definitely recommend this game to people of all ages. It’s cute, funny, and easy. I think anybody who can understand it would like it.
