Product Description

Our little monster needs your help! Stop that pesky cat, find the hidden cheese, and save the mice!

Contains precious, adorable mild violence.

- Swipe rows of rocks, ice blocks, trampolines, mouse traps and more to create a chain-reaction of tools and powerups. Do it correctly and you'll send the rock toward the cat, bonking him on the head and freeing the mice!

- Special items will help you through the game's 100 puzzles: catapults, bowling balls and even portals!

- Bonus cheese! Each puzzle contains 3 hidden pieces of cheese. This makes your mouse friends even happier and increases your score!

In this game, you strike a wooden stump which sends a rock down a path you create by swiping the rows left or right to line up the arrows. It consists of five worlds with 20 levels each.

There are no troubling permissions other than network, which wasn't necessary; the game worked just fine without network access.

It does include a tutorial in the first level, which really is all you need, as it is quite obvious what new elements do in the game, such as diagonal arrows, trampolines, and mousetraps. Seriously, the one-level tutorial is plenty.

PROBLEMATIC GAME PLAY:
It's a rather cute game for the first five or six leisurely levels, and then suddenly gets brutally difficult. As an adult, I started having significant difficulty around level 11, and by the time I got to level 17 it was nearly impossible to finish within 20 seconds, requiring several replays.

This might do well for some older kids, but the appeal of the game for younger children will mean that they will get frustrated quickly, as will parents who buy this thinking it is a game for youngsters.

A simple fix would bring this to four or five star level: add an option to disable the timer, and/or let the user choose how much time to allot. Simple and yet very effective.

Another issue is that the user cannot skip a level. If you are stuck, well, you are stuck until you repeat it over and over. This is a quick path to app abandonment. If the dev wants happy gamers, then the app needs to allow people to skip or jump over levels.

The game does keep score, but it is more like an afterthought than a game mechanic. I suppose someone may wish to try to beat their scores, but I don't see that as a big replay appeal. Neither is finding all the cheese.

There's nothing wrong with this game and you might find it entertaining. For me, it seemed cute for the first few levels and then got repetitious. On the plus side, the game play is snappy and except for dropping a large rock on a cat every level there is nothing objectionable. Some may even find that last thing a plus.

There are no viruses, Trojans, or annoying ads and no harm to give it a try as a FAOTD. Otherwise, it is just the risk of a buck.

A cat is underground with the mouse's family. The father mouse is on top of the ground and he has a mallet to hit a tree stump. You have to align the arrows underground to direct the force of hitting the stump to the location of the cat. Using the arrows you can even direct the force sideways to the proper place to knock out the cat so the mice can escape. As the force goes down it also uncovers cheese which you collect. You need cheese to move from this world to another set of levels. There are other objects that appear underground like a trampoline so the game does have some changing strategies to the solutions.

I found this to be a cute game but I hated the 20 second clock. About level 12 I had to play several times on the same level to beat the clock. This looks like a cute children's game but they will quickly reach a level in the game where the clock does not allow them to finish a level. The developer should have an option to disable the clock to allow you to play the level. Frankly in the later levels I found 20 seconds to be too short of a time. Children will soon get frustrated like I did and stop playing the game.

If you cannot beat a level you are stuck there and forced to replay the level over and over until you beat it. The game does contain access permissions for the internet but the game plays well with it turned off.

This would have been a 4 or a 5 star game with the ability to turn off the clock and perhaps a difficulty setting so children can enjoy the game. Maybe like easy, medium and difficult. Easy could turn off the timer for children. I rated it at 3 stars at the present time.

It's a cute and fun game... for 10 minutes. I then found the complexity too daunting, and impossible to complete in 20 seconds. It became much more frustrating than fun. If you're very good as solving visual puzzles [very!] quickly, then this game may be for you, otherwise you may wish to pass on this one.

Think of pachinko, except there's only one ball and you can control where it drops. That's what Clobbr reminded me of. The first level is a sort of visual tutorial, and that's all the help you get, but it's pretty easy to figure out. I got through 7 levels in World 1, and I played the first level in World 2, but it was getting too difficult by then because of the 20-second timer. The first few levels were simple enough to complete in the allotted time, but it got increasingly difficult to figure a path through the stones with time running out.

I would have enjoyed the game a lot more if there were degrees of difficulty you could choose, with the easier modes having more time on the clock or having a casual mode with no timer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting CLOBBR'd by the Game Timer May 8, 2014
Verified Purchase
CLOBBR certainly has the right kid's game elements - minimal permissions, Kirby-esque graphics, simple gameplay, decent music, ZERO outside web linkings (and that's the big one). Lacking an option to turn off the 20 second timer (or at least extend it), however, drags it down. I do have the flu, and it is early in the morning, but I only had 2 seconds left on level THREE. As for the "violence", a fluffy looking pillow creature pounding a stump, causing a rock to follow down the path, knocking the cat on the noggin. I am lumping that with the timer issue for minus 1 star- the designers could have made it a cage being knocked down, eliminating all physical violence, but it is minor compared to 97% of the shows on Cartoon Network.

Ya, short review, but in all, this game has its heart in the right place, and I am sure it will find a place on many folk's Android devices. Just not mine, at least not till I am over this flu.

Hate is a really strong word.

Clobbr is a game where you arrange rows of arrows to "clobber" the bad guy at the bottom of the screen. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the time...
This game only holds up for about 15 minutes. After that you will lose the desire to play the game. Removed it one hour after starting to play it.
