This is a great and addictive game that you will need a phone/tablet with decent processing power to really enjoy without too much lag. I liken it to playing Angry Birds in 3D with Spheres being the Birds and Cubes being the Piggies. Or for those of us who remember playing Asteroids and Centipede on the old Atari platform, this is similar to a 3D version of those classic shoot 'em up games.

I have a feeling that Amazon will be promoting many developers with 3D perspective games in the near future with the much hyped release of the Fire Phone and its dynamic perspective technology. I can only imagine what this developer could do with that technology during gameplay.

Given that this is a Free App of the Day, there is no downside from downloading it. Especially since it doesn't look like there the developer is exploiting many user permissions The only thing listed is the PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming when you are playing the game - which is a needed function to keep the screen from dimming while you set up your shot.

You start out with a basic sphere and can unlock other ones. You can also upgrade the original sphere. As far as I know you pay points earned from games to buy the other spheres after you unlock them. You can unlock them in any order you want as long as you have enough points.

It's definitley simple on overall concept vut actual gameplay and strategy starts to get tricky, in a good way.

Definitley worth trying out as a faotd.

FYI- im no programer but the most malicious thing they could do with their permision is run you battery down until you quit the game...I'd call it safe. Cudos to the programing team, this one's a gem.

I had bought & enjoyed this game over a year ago, and only downloaded this Amazon version to write this review. If you like games such as Smash Hit, you will not be disappointed. It might not run smoothly on all devices, and there were some minor control issues, but still I was able to complete the game on a 2011 phone back then; so if you have a more recent device, the odds are good that it will run fine. There are no privacy issues that you have to worry about, so just download it & give it a try. Enjoy.

[Added]
-- When you first run the game, you are given the option to choose tilt or swipe to turn (pan the scene around). Once you have chosen, however, you can only access this setting by pausing during a game (press the Back key).
-- You don't have to wait for the cubes to appear. If you know they're going to drop down from the ledges, just swipe high to get them before they even show up!
-- Get used to summoning a new ball with one finger, then launch with another. Keep firing in succession into space and let the cubes run into them! (Just like placing landmines LOL) Experiment with rolling a sphere along the floor besides launching them in a trajectory.
-- I suggest you get the cubes coming at you from either edges first. The ones in the middle are easier to handle.
-- If a cube gets too close, just touch or slightly nudge your sphere. Any movement resembling a swipe will probably throw the sphere over & missing it.
-- For the hardest levels, combine Freeze & Fire spheres. The Iron sphere is only good for slow-moving big cubes.

Pretty cool game, challenging... If you enjoy a good brain teaser look no further, you will be flicking your finger all day trying to hit those squares...

Nice 3d graphics, permission safe and No IAP (2 EXTRA POINTS BECAUSE OF THAT)

In this game you have to touch a circle to eject a ball out of the floor. Cubes appear at a distance and begin rolling towards you. You flick the balls and launch them at the cubes and if you hit them you destroy them. You have to launch the balls with your left hand and flip them with the right hand and in addition scroll around and tilt the screen see if the cubes are sneaking up on you from outside of your screen's vision angle. I found the controls to be a bit awkward. In addition camera angle affects your aim. Ejecting the balls out of the floor seems to be slow. That needs to be sped up to make the game more fun.

There are powerups and they make the game a bit easier. You have to earn enough points to purchase balls that have powers that can help you defeat the cubes.

The relentless approach of the cubes eventually overwhelms you unless you move quickly. Since I am being forced to use both hands to play the game it made it awkward to hold my tablet so I found myself laying it down to more easily use both hands. I rate this game as a 3 star item.

Permissions are not an issue. No addons or spyware either which is great!

But the game itself, sad to say, is just not exciting enough to hold my attention for long. I mean I get it, protect yourself from the cubes... and yes there are powerups and some variety but even still, the game is just lacking a fun factor for me.

As a FAOTD this is a safe bet to try because who knows you may love this and again it is safe to install and all but: you may also feel the same way about it that I do... In such cases, it is easy enough to uninstall, right? As a paid app, only grab this if games like this float your boat.
