Joyland Bounce is a cute, colorful game for your Android device. It looks great and will keep you entertained for a good few levels.
Joyland Bounce looks and plays a little differently to what you might be used to. We've seen the mechanism elsewhere, but some people might still be unfamiliar with it.
Basically, use both hands to rotate, tip and slant your phone to help the little ball bounce over, and around the obstacles, collect the coins and hit the objective. These obstacles take the shape of a beautiful garden, so you'll have to move around to get over flowers, trees and hills and ultimately make it to the end of each level.
There are two game modes, Arcade, which is easy, and Story, which gets progressively harder. We found that Story was the more interesting option.
Easy to get used to
If you've never played a game like this, it will feel stange to move your device around so much. Once you get the hang, though, it's easy and fun. If you're not into the tilting, go to options and change the controls to Swipe. The tilt option is more fun though!
Joyland Bounce looks good and plays smoothly. We didn't notice any glitches or lag, although there is something rough about the game that we couldn't put our fingers on, exactly. It's so insignificant though, that it won't affect your enjoyment.
A lovely game, but debatable lasting power
We had great fun playing Joyland Bounce - it's just so cute! That said, unless more advanced levels of the game radically change the gameplay, or get fiendishly difficult, we can't see the game being one that you go back to again and again.
It's more like a game that you play non-stop for a weekend and then never again. It's a fun weekend while you're at it though!
