    Who doesn't like to play free games? But there’s a catch.

    If you don’t have to spend money to buy in-game items, they will typically bombard you with ads: un-skippable full screen videos, banners and even promos for other apps.

    The developers of XOB take a fair approach. You will see one ad for every four levels you complete.

    You can pre-watch ads if you don’t want to be interrupted and there are only 24 ads over 100 levels. They also start with a small note explaining that ads are their source of income - and they apologise in advance for showing you those ads.

    The game itself is fun & challenging - a kinetic puzzle game with a simple premise and psychedelic graphics.

    Be prepared for several attempts on some levels because they won’t explain anything beyond the first tutorial - no tool tips and no hints.

    You need to experiment and observe. ‘You are intelligence itself’ proclaims the game. They seem to be right on the money.
