The game was played for several hours.

App description

This Olympic style sport app allows the player to control the balance and actions of a single unicycle rider. The player competes in 8 object throwing events and depending on the score achieved at the end of each round can use the points earned to enhance their performance in the following areas – strength, speed and agility. On the opening screen the player has the chance to practice their unicycle skills before competing but there are no clear instruction, and even balancing on the unicycle takes a lot of practice. Each game is similar but the object that the player throws or hits changes ie javelin, tennis ball, snooker ball etc. The aim of the game is to get the highest score possible.

Reviewers comments

The fine motor skills required to play this game are advanced and the reviewer had trouble keeping the unicycle character balanced. However once mastered, although the game offers limited educational benefits, children and adults will find enjoyment in playing this game.

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.
