Boonce is a physics puzzle game in which you have to shoot cannon balls at targets and hit them in a particular way: certain targets can only be hit directly, some targets can only be hit after a bounce.
The game is described on the marketplace as:
Boonce is a 2D cannon shooter game boasting a plethora of original concepts and challenges. Thoughtfully designed levels and beautiful hand-drawn art are backed by a mellow soundtrack that belies the game’s fast-paced and rewarding experience.
With over a hundred level cards spread across two ‘decks’, Boonce has plenty in the way of variety and challenge. Destroy an array of unique targets in different ways to progress through the game and earn medals based on your performance. Throw into the mix the fact that each target comes with its own rules for being destroyed – some must be hit directly, others require you to bounce the ball first and others must be avoided altogether – and it’s fair to say that each level offers a fresh challenge for the player.
The trial version of Boonce! comes with 28 levels to beat and includes a sneak peek at the Science Lab deck. If players like what they see they can buy the full version for a modest amount through the game itself. Kalidorn have more decks planned in regular updates, each with their own new toys to play with. The first update deck is The Lab, with Teleportals and Anti-Gravity Fields and is available today as part of the full version. Thank you for playing and we hope you enjoy our game!
Boonce is fun to play, the music is appropriate and relaxing, and the puzzles are well thought out. If you have a few minutes to kill, you should definitely check it out.
A couple of levels in Boonce
As always, there are certain things that could be improved in the game. In a puzzle early on, a direct hit target was kept enclosed by walls on 3 sides, making it hard to hit. Without an underlying story to the game, it seems a bit contrived to have such a hard target early on. Unlike Angry Birds, boonce does not show the ghost of your previous attempt, so you have no basis to gauge your next attempt. Balls that leave the cannon seem to bounce around for a long time, which makes it a bit distracting.
Overall, I can recommend boonce wholeheartedly. Check it out in the marketplace now.
