With a preponderance of puzzlers populating the eShop, people who are passionate about their pastime may be perplexed when perusing the pile of potential titles to pick up. Coming in with its large, colorful, and very portable-friendly characters you now have BouncyBoi as an option, though perhaps as only a middling and somewhat generic one. Your objective is to get from your starting point to the goal space, and you’ll be facing a wide variety of obstacles and enemies to get there. For the most part the solutions to each stage will require a bit of patience and raw trial and error to work through, though the very limited abilities your purple glob of slime possesses tends to leave little room for interpretation at least where it concerns the general idea of what you may want or need to do to get through. For me the frustration tended to look towards what feels like the very trial and nature element of how you’ll simply need to try things out, fail, and start over (since it is keeping track of your number of moves for scoring you) as you piece together what it will take to get everything in the right place in the right sequence so you can move on. The formula does work, but be warned that it doesn’t necessarily inspire much passion as you grind through each stage.
