Team Phobic has just released Bounce On Lite [App Store], a free "lite" version of its Mario-style 2D platformer that offers a subset of the features of the original Bounce On [$3.99 App Store].

In Bounce On, a red ball has accidentally fallen out of someone’s pocket and it’s the player’s job to guide it home while picking up gems and power-ups along the way and avoiding (or squashing) enemies, Mario-style.  The ball is controlled via tilt with a tap to the screen to bounce.  The graphics are simplistic, cartoony and colorful, also evoking a Mario-esque feel.

We took a look at Bounce On last month and found it to offer an enjoyable 2D platform experience that helps fill the dearth of such titles in the App Store rather nicely.

See our demonstration video of the paid app, Bounce On.

    The devs are working on around 6 worlds.
    And with every world they release, the price will rise a bit. So grab it now! I really like this pricing model. Much better than releasing a "expensive" app just to go down few days after. That is annoying. And this game is worth every Cent.

    this game frustrates me.......
    i love the concept and the control is pretty good but --
    collecting diamonds is useless! I wish they made this mandatory to advance levels or SOMETHING.....it would force you to fully explore too..
    i find myself just avoiding them...also just jumping over enemies rather than killing them to advance to the end....i wish they would create boss levels and do something with those stupid diamonds...

    I am happy they released the lite version, because now I know that I don't like this game at all.

    I was really expecting the red ball to bounce like a real rubber ball. It lands with a thump. Playing a mario game with a rubber ball should be more crazy fast paced.

    @G:

    Just curious why you think you should have to collect all of something to advance? Neither Mario or Sonic required you to do this, you could go through the level and do as much or as little as you wanted.

    @andrea:

    To each his own. ^_^

    mario and sonic are vast games that take a long time to beat.
    This game, however, does not.
    If im NOT collecting diamonds and NOT having to kill anything to get through a level, then what am i doing? Bouncing slowly through boring level after boring level?
    And I agree that the design is bland. It looks hastily put together. The storyline segue to the junk level is a joke to say the least! judging from the artistic quality i would almost think the entire game was put together using clip art! blehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    I just bought it. I figure, it would be nice to have one platform game and if there really will be 6 worlds, it's well worth the $4+

    After playing the lite version, I picked up the full version and found that it was worth the money. I think the game could use a little more story. Also I appreciate the free add-ons but it makes me wonder how the team making the game will make any money.

    It's not the best game ever, but it's a good amount of bang for the buck.

    It's all about skill, balance and ultimately control. The lite version is for my kids. The kids are 4 and 6 and they have finished all levels except the grey one's, but all the doors have been opened and finished. So this game is fun and time consuming but it builds skill. For the one's that don't like it...go buy a game that you enjoy killing people or something.
