Squeeballs Party is a series of small touch based mini-games featuring a colourful line up of characters; the Squeeballs. There are four mini games to choose from; bowling, cooking, bowling through an obstacle course and a catapult painting game.

Each game has different controls, but all are touch related. For example the cooking mini-game plays similar to Cooking Mama, where players must dice onions and carrots by swiping up and down at the screen. Overall the controls work well, except on occasion in the obstacles course bowling game, where the tilt sensitivity can be a bit finicky and makes the game hard to play.

The 3D visuals are great. Each Squeeball has its own personality and unique look, giving the game a real personality. The sound is also very well done and furthers the charm of the game. Players can play through the four available mini games, take on the challenge ladder or try and beat the highscores on the Argon leaderboards.

Squeeballs is a quirky and humorous game with some enticing and addicting gameplay. Each of the mini-games are a lot of fun to play; even the cooking game where you chop and grind up Squeeballs for the mighty El Toro to eat. There is a limit to the game's content however as once you finish the challenges, your only option is to try to increase your score for a leaderboard rank. But you’ll certainly have a lot of fun doing so.

BM has not seen a single update since the intial release nearly 18 months ago and it no longer features on the developer's website. I can only assume from these facts that it is no longer in development. A shame, because the game looked very promising and had lots of potential. Unfortunately, this kind of thing happens often; a decent game is released with the developer promising to support and update it, but then failing to do so with no apparent explanation.
