BoboBua is an addictive and easy-to-follow game that creatively combined story, aesthetic, mechanic and technology together. It essentially provides two play modes, story and action. Within the story mode, the game follows a love story between a meatball, Bobo, and his girlfriend Bua. Bua is swallowed up by none other than a hungry and heartless human, and it is up to Bobo to rescue his one and only love by plunging into the human's body to try and save her. The story mode combines the plot aspect along with challenging the players' gaming skills, while the action mode is solely challenge-oriented, where the player's goal is to obtain the most points.
The game play of BoboBua is quite simple: players essentially use the noodle as a spring in order to move the meatball. Furthermore, the noodle can be balanced by tilting the actual device from left to right. As part of the game play, the meatball, Bobo, needs to keep eating in order to maintain his strength and last the entire journey, while making sure to avoid harmful bacteria that may come his way.
In addition to the simplicity of the game play, the features of the game are what really sets it apart from others in the market. Players use the actual phone device to play the game by rotating, taping, and swiping their way through the adventure. In addition, the graphics created by Tripod Games, are sleek and visually stunning. Finally, the simple and addictive game play allows for players to participate in quick-game sessions when they are on-the-go.
