App description

Inside Out Thought Bubbles is a fun strategy game based on the Disney movie Inside Out. The player must shoot coloured thought bubbles towards the matching coloured memory balls to make them disappear.

Reviewers comments

Inside Out Thought Bubbles is a bubble shooter style game where the player must shoot different coloured ‘thought bubbles’ at a pattern of coloured memory balls. When three balls of the same colour are connected they disappear and any other balls connected below the disappeared balls fall down. The aim of the game is to make all the memory balls disappear before your thought bubbles run out. The levels get progressively harder and some levels have certain special goals that the player must reach to finish the level. For example, there are ‘skill shot’ levels where the player must get a thought bubble into a spinning hole.

There are special power ups that the player can use to help them along in the game. There are two character power ups based on Joy and Sadness (the characters from the movie). These are free power ups that make certain memory balls change colour. There are also other power ups which can be brought with gems (see In App Purchasing for more detail).  

The player can lose a level and a life if they run out of thought bubbles before they reach their goal. They can replay the level if they have enough lives. Both lives and more thought bubbles can be brought with gems (see In App Purchasing for more detail). However, the player can also gain more lives by waiting ten minutes.

This app is suitable for children to use, however, parental guidance is recommended for 4-6 year olds because children may accidentally purchase in app products and higher levels of the game may become difficult for younger players.

In App purchasing

The player can spend real money to buy more gems. For example, you can buy 10 gems for $1.29 to 650 gems for $64.99. Gems can be used to buy extra lives, more thought bubbles or special power ups.

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.
