Ball Bounce is the first of three minigames used to gain stars for individual characters; the other two are the Apple-Picking and Telescope games in order. It consists of tossing a ball back and forth.

How to play

Choose one of three ball types. Once selected that ball will be on the ground on the right side of the screen and the pony you're playing with will be on the left. Swipe the ball with your finger towards the pony and the pony will bounce it back. The objective is to keep swiping the ball back to the pony without letting it go past the right side of the screen.

If you miss and let the ball go past the right side of the screen "Archer" will roll it back to its starting position moments later. You can continue to play but any extra speed you built up will be lost.

This game lasts for 45 seconds. The timer begins after your first hit.

Variations

5 Gem x4 Gems on the side

Strategy

Hit the ball at the 'ideal time'

When the pony hits the ball two circles appear around it. One is a colored circle that rapidly changes from red, to yellow, to green. The other is a thin dotted white circle, drawn much larger than the ball. It rapidly shrinks to the size of the ball. The colored circle turns green at the very moment the white circle shrinks to the same size as the ball. That moment is the 'ideal time' to swipe the ball back to the pony.

Make the ball shine to make it go faster

In addition to the circles a colored arrow appears next to the ball as it flies to the right. The arrow can either point at an upward angle, a downward angle, or straight left. You can also swipe the ball back at an upward angle, downward angle, or straight left as well. If you return the ball in the same direction as the arrow and hit it at the 'ideal time' the ball will shine and will go a little faster.

Scoring

You get points every time you hit the ball. The score is based on how fast the ball is moving and how close to the 'ideal time' you hit it but ranges from about 8 to 19. You get two extra points each time you make the ball shine.

Tips

Avoid hitting the ball upwards even if the arrow is pointing that way. Returning the ball with the upwards arc takes significantly longer than the other two arcs. You lose out on the 2 point bonus but you definitely get  more hits this way.  Following this strategy will allow you to score over 500 points in a single game with enough practice.

Trivia

  • The red ball with stars is the same one seen in Season 1 episode "Dragonshy".[1]
  • The yellow ball with a blue stripe is the same one seen in Season 4 episode "Pinkie Pride".
