How To Play
The Red Ball 7th level starts with the ball on a block. The special feature of this game is the box bridge you will have to create in order to be safe from the sharp thorns. You have to move the ball forward and jump which will place it on a small moving platform which can move up. After another jump, you will face the first obstacle, a sharp star which is swinging on a rope like a pendulum. You can go under it when the start swings on the other side and jump over the thorns.
There is a springboard which you need to traverse to land on a bunch of moving platforms. After jumping from these platforms you will be able to reach the box area. Boxes are stacked high just ahead of a thorny stretch. You have to move the ball so that all the boxes fall on the thorns and not on the pit to provide you a safe passage over the thorns.
There is a small red box on the other side of the thorns which you have to hit so that you will be able to complete the level. Once that is done, you can come back the same way and go towards the goal flag passing through the swing. You can see that in the single level of this game, you can see the effects of pendulum, horizontal and vertical movement, swinging motion and the effects of pushing the stacks.
This game does not contain any violence. It can help players learn about few physics concepts like the pendulum and catapult. It is suitable for both children and adults. Especially children who are above 8 years will find the game enjoyable.
