The level to which the game was reviewed

Our Reviewer played to level 8.

App description

In Perfect Hit, players must navigate a series of balls through an inclined platform filled with obstacles. Once the balls reach the end, players must then align the trajectory so that when the balls go over the ramp, they then land in the designated hole/s in the end shape. Any amount of balls that make it into the hole/s tally on the progress bar and allow the player to continue to the next platform. If no balls go in the hole/s, then the game ends. The aim of the game is to get as many balls in the holes as possible in order to maintain progress and reach the next level.

Reviewers comments

This game is saturated with advertising. Further to the constant banner ad at bottom of screen, ads pop up randomly and ads can be watched to continue playing. As players progress through levels (for example, half way between level 8 and 9 on the progress bar), platform obstacles and end shape holes become harder – hence players that spend time and effort making it that far may be inclined to watch ads in order to keep going and not lose the progress they’ve just made. Ads can also be watched to earn new balls and backgrounds. The developer’s age rating on this game is set to 12, accompanied by a large range of warnings (see above). However, as the current reviewer encountered little to be concerned about within the game itself, it is expected that the warning pertains to the nature of the ads some may be exposed to.

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.
