Sometimes when reviewing games the WMG
feels like there is something big on the horizon. There will be
something coming that will just open the eyes of all of us here at
Family Friendly Gaming. There will be a WOW moment. That actually came
this week thanks to Clumsy Bob. Like the Seattle Seahawks beating the
New Orleans Saints, Clumsy Bob came out of nowhere. A clumsy elephant
that bounces along clouds does not exactly sound like a winner on paper.
But after playing this fun little app, the eyes of the WMG is now open.
The graphics in Clumsy Bob are cute, fresh, fun, and very friendly. Your little elephant can miss a cloud, and fall off the screen. There are also weird creatures that like to eat him. Clumsy Bob just vanishes into their mouth, and you get the results screen. Clouds of different colors have different effects. For example a red cloud vanishes after one bounce.
The music in Clumsy Bob is also very fresh and fun. The level of quality is very high in Clumsy Bob, especially when paying attention to the special effect sounds. The lesson in Clumsy Bob is to get as far to the right as you possibly can. Learning trajectory, speed, and angles are other lessons that all ages of the family can learn from this app.
When the WMG would make a mistake, there was a desire to try again and do better. The interesting thing is Clumsy Bob can be put down after played for a few minutes. So the addictive factor did not affect real life, or the real world. Friends and family members can compete in Clumsy Bob. Who is the best? Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for Clumsy Bob. With that said, the price of one penny under a dollar is a great price for this game.
Game play in Clumsy Bob is extremely easy. Tilt the screen to move the elephant. This is done to adjust where he will land. Meaning you want to land on a cloud, and then bounce to the right. There are various items in Clumsy Bob which assist the player. The umbrella is the WMG's favorite item. This allowed a nice length in distance without falling. The farther the player goes the more difficult it becomes. Things like clouds moving around will really mess you up. The WMG had fun playing Clumsy Bob, and believes you will as well.
There are some light mathematical and physics lessons in Clumsy Bob. The good news is there is very little bad content in this app, and it is very cheap to purchase. Clumsy Bob is such a simple idea that has been implemented beautifully. The WMG hopes to see sequels to Clumsy Bob in the future. The WMG is recommending Clumsy Bob to family, and friends.
