All levels in the first world

App description

In Cham Cham, the player must move the ground in strategic directions to avoid the hazards and roll the fruit into the chameleon’s mouth.

Reviewers comments

In Cham Cham the player uses their finger to drag certain areas of the ground up or down to get the fruit to roll into the chameleon’s mouth. There are three stars on each level which the player can try to reach to earn extra points and unlock extra levels.

As the levels progress, the landscape changes and the difficulty increases. The game introduces harder elements such as hazards they must avoid, and portals and canons that the player must use to get the fruit to the chameleon.

The player starts with 10 fruits and will receive 1 fruit every 10 minutes. The player will lose a fruit if it hits a hazard, falls off a cliff or rolls to a location where it cannot reach the chameleon’s mouth. The time constraint placed on the fruit can be beneficial for limiting the amount of time the child can play the app for. However, the player can get more fruit by participating in online activities (see Online Information) or by buying more fruit (see In App Purchasing).

The game is beneficial for developing a child’s spatial awareness and problem solving skills, because the player must negotiate how to move the ground to create the right angles for the fruit to roll.

In App purchasing

Yes: The player can buy more fruit and hints about how to complete the level, for real money. The costs range from $1.29 - $13.99.

Online information

The game connects to OpenFeint if you are playing on an android or Game Centre if you are playing on an apple product.  These platforms are online communities where you can share your scores and connect to your Facebook page. However, you can choose to restrict OpenFeint or Game Centre on your device.

The game also offers players extra fruit if they participate in social media, such as liking the game on Facebook or watching advertisement videos.

Gambling

None found during the review.

Advertising and product placement

Players can choose to watch advertisement videos to gain extra fruit.

Game playing behaviour which may be of concern to some parents

No game playing behaviour which may be of concern to parents was found during the review.

Other

Violence and Scary Material : There are some sharp rocks in the game and if the fruit falls onto them, the fruit will break into pieces and the chameleon looks sad.  Also, in certain levels the player must use a canon to shoot the fruit over obstacles or towards the chameleon.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
