BallFallDown Deluxe is an innovative, open-ended construction toy only possible on an iPad. Construct your own marble run or build brand new toys with the whole family!
Design your own marble run using a variety of balls, platforms, spinners, flippers, and tubes. Use the simple touch screen controls to rotate, lengthen and shorten, and drag pieces around the play space.

Here's what the press has to say:
"Incredible construction toy for open-ended play... BallFallDown Deluxe is a super app. (five stars)"
"This is my new favorite app. I spent one hour straight playing this game, until I tore myself away to write this review... My whole family loved this app; I had a hard time getting it away from my younger brothers, and even my parents had fun for once with my iPad."
"BallFallDown Deluxe shows that gaming for children doesn’t have to be about points or levels, but that given the right space and a wide variety of tools children will set their own goals and develop strong design thinking. Props to the developers."

Best of 2010
"This game will definitely be a hit with the younger audience, but … the kid in all of us can have fun playing around with BallFallDown”
Here's the story of this upgrade: when we first released BallFallDown almost 8 years ago (!), we never imagined it would still be going strong after all this time. We built it for the original iPad all those years ago, but improvements in hardware and software over the years meant that over time the original code we used was too old to work on the newer systems. Since BallFallDown no longer worked with the new iOS11 and all the BallFallDown users who upgraded to the new iOS could no longer play, we needed to completely update all the code.
We didn't realize how many people were still enjoying BallFallDown until we started hearing from parents and kids everywhere how much they missed it! We were particularly touched as many special needs parents reached out directly to us. One parent told us BallFallDown was sometimes the only thing that could help them relax! Once we heard that, we realized we needed to take the time to update BallFallDown to keep it in the hands of kids (and adults) everywhere.
The only thing that is different in this version, and we apologize for this, is that due to all the changes we had to make under the hood, your previous saved play areas will no longer work in the new version. We realize that you spent a lot of time on these play areas and feel terrible about this! If there was anything we could do to save them we would have.
We love hearing from you so please feel free to drop us a line. Enjoy the new version and thanks for playing!
Ratings and Reviews
Ball Fall Down
First of all I love the name. So simple and kind of cute. I first played by myself and got addicted. Then my 8 year old wanted to see what I was doing so she first watched then fell in love. Now we play together and it's so much fun. He little brother is now getting into watching us play and soon he'll be addicted as well.
I love that it's not about keeping score and "winning". A great lesson for my kids.
I just downloaded this game today and it is already my favorite one! The graphics are great and pretty much everything else is too! Its my favorite because i think that its fun to be able to build your own game with so many ball types amd wheels. Once again, the app is fabulous and i would highly reccomed it.
Absorbing and relaxing
As a parent I love how my twelve-year-old gets absorbed in this game. For myself I just spent an hour in this world and am completely blissed out.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
