Here is the first touchscreen friendly game that I would like to highlight. It is called Factory Balls and it is a simple flash based browser game. It is a puzzle game which involves taking balls from your inventory and modifying them to match the ball painted on the box. Once your ball matches the ball on the box, the ball will fall into the box and you will move on to the next puzzle. The game is simple at first as you learn how to use tools to modify your ball. As you progress, puzzles will get more complicated and you will have a wider variety of tools to use. Think carefully before you modify your ball, some modifications can’t be undone, and you’ll need to trash the ball and pick a new one from your limited inventory which is reflected across all of the levels. Some of the levels where you use the pump tool to paint a stripe on the ball (like the one pictured) can be a bit confusing. Experiment a bit and you will begin to understand how the different combinations of tool use will effect the outcome.
This game functions very nicely if you have a touchscreen. In order to modify the ball, you drag it onto the tool that you would like to use; it is very easy and natural if you are using a stylus. I would put my bet on a touchscreen user over a mouse user if they were in a race to see who could complete the game first. Head over to the site and have a look at this simple, but fun, touchscreen friendly game.
