Match col­ored orbs with the help of Joy, Sad­ness and Anger

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

“In­side Out” is the movie of the mo­ment, and if you want to ex­tend the fun, con­sider down­load­ing the film’s tie-in app. It is a match­ing game in the style of clas­sic ar­cade games such as “Bub­ble Bob­ble,” in which play­ers shoot and match col­ored orbs to clear them from the ceil­ing. In this app, the orbs you’re match­ing are thought bub­bles. Your early game host is Joy, one of the movie’s pro­tag­o­nists, who cheer­fully coaches you through the app.

As you progress, you can pick up Sad­ness and Anger, who also add their own spin on things. The game does not re­quire in-app pur­chases to ad­vance, though buy­ing su­per-tools from the app will make it eas­ier to ad­vance quickly. The game also has a builtin ra­tioning method. When you run out of lives, you have to put the game away to re­gen­er­ate over time (or, al­ter­na­tively, pay up) to keep go­ing. Free for iOS and An­droid de­vices.
