ACCM review

This review of Flippy Bottle Extreme contains the following information:

The level to which the game was reviewed

Played for several hours over a week.

App description

This arcade style game requires the player to flip a bottle upright onto various household items ie table, chair, shelf. If the player misses then the bottle falls into the lava pit below, and if successful in landing the bottle, the player moves onto the next challenge. There are an endless amount of lives so game play is repetitive, and it is not easy to land the bottle, so players will need to practice to progress through this game. Extra points can be earned by watching videos or sharing on Facebook. The more points you earn the more bottles you collect.

Reviewers comments

This game is quite difficult and advanced fine motor skills and time co-ordination is required to swipe a finger across the screen in the appropriate manner to land a bottle upright. Older children may enjoy this challenge but need to take adequate breaks as it would be easy to lose track of time while playing this game.

On the opening screen, and during game play, there are links to Facebook and Twitter. There are also pop-up ads that, if you click on them, take you directly to the Apple iTunes store.

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.
