The level to which the game was reviewed

Level 6

App description

Unroll Me is a timed puzzle game. The player must move tiles around the board to make a pipe which connects the beginning tile to the end tile. The player must complete the puzzle before the time runs out and the ball begins to roll!

Reviewers comments

The player begins with a 4x4 grid with 14 tiles and each tile contains a different part of a pipe. There are two spaces free on the grid, which allows the player to move the tiles around and connect the pieces of the tube together. On the grid there is also a silver beginning tile, where the ball starts and a red end tile, where the ball must finish. When the game starts the player has seven seconds to connect the pipe before the ball starts slowly rolling. If the ball hits a blocked tile before it reaches the end, the ball smashes and the game will be over.

At each level you can score three stars. These stars are based on how many moves it takes you to solve the puzzle. The fewer moves it takes the more stars you receive. As the levels progress the player has less time before the ball starts rolling and the puzzles also become harder to solve. 

In App purchasing

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.
