Jelly Joo Game Brings Alien Bombing Fun to Android
For one reason or another, it seems that many Android game developers enjoy creating puzzle games. Regardless of why this is the case, if you’re looking for a puzzle game, they’re not hard to find. One of the newer puzzle games to make it’s way to the platform is called Jelly Joo. Developed by XDA Forum Member Nyxbull, the game is free at the Play Store and is compatible with Android 2.2 and up.
The premise of the game is a little goofy. The player sets bombs to explode at certain times in an attempt to launch Jelly Joo (an alien lost on Earth) through a level and over a finish line. It features over 60 levels with increasingly difficult puzzles, as well as some surprises for the gamers. If you have trouble learning, there’s a semi-instructional video in the Google Play Store description. It’s always comforting to know we embrace interplanetary guests by blowing them up until they leave.
