The level to which the game was reviewed

Played to level 207.

App description

In Flip Dunk, players are required to jump from the starting position, flip and then dunk the basketball into the hoop. This is simply achieved by tapping the screen to jump, hold screen to flip/tumble and then let go to stop flipping. Flipping within the required amount of times (and dunking the ball successfully) allows progression to the next stage. Each stage gets harder with various obstacles and greater amount of flips required. The aim of the game is to keeping going without making a mistake and falling to the ground without dunking the ball.

Reviewers comments

The game itself is quite harmless, however, there are many ads present; 2 constant banner ads on the start screen, with 20-30 second clip ads between levels. You can purchase “No ads” for $4.49 (AUS) – which seemed to improve smoothness of play. There were no gambling elements noted (as indicated by the developer’s age recommendation warning). However, they may have been referring to the possible ads that may appear during the course of gameplay.

In App purchasing

“No Ads” can be purchased for $4.49 (AUS).

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.
