AA Solutionz developed this arcade game with visually stimulating graphics put together with a peppy soundtrack for the iPod Touch, iPhone and the iPad, requiring iOS 5.0 or higher. The numerous bombs around Freddy have to be destroyed in order to protect Freddy. It resembles the classic bubble popping game, but with a new exciting twist. Suited for players of all ages, it is easy to understand and play both. At the same time, it gets more challenging as one proceeds with the game. With balls shooting in at you from all directions, a good amount of concentration is required indeed.

Although the concept itself is quite simple the developers have tried to build up on the features in terms of providing the best of everything. The graphics have been developed very well and the soundtrack sets in the right mood. If you like competition, then you can compete for high scores with yourself and with other players. The Game Center keeps tracks of all the high scores so you know where you stand.

The screen controls are very user friendly. The players canrotate the wheel to deflect and engage the fireballs. Each game starts off with a single fireball but users are allowed to add up to 3 fireballs using the orange icon at the bottom left corner of the screen.
