Editors’ Choice

How far can you roll a sphere down a super-steep, never-ending ramp before falling off? Find out in this devilishly tough but instantly accessible score-based racing game—a masterpiece whose simple controls and wonderfully minimalist presentation will keep you coming back again and again. Whether you stick to the road with precision driving or fling yourself into the unknown with wild jumps, you’ll be engrossed and pushed to your limits.

Very good!

I have been playing this game since release and frankly, it’s one of the best games ever, the idea is so simple and the game seems simple too, however it is a massively complex game but really fun, the only reason this is not a 5 star review is because there is only one game mode that seems a bit repetitive. If you could maybe implement maybe a level mode ore something, maybe a custom map builder and also the turquoise background is more than ugly, however I love this game and will continue to play it no matter what the outcome.

Great idea, not sure about execution

The idea behind the game is great in its simplicity and addictiveness, which is why I still return to it after all these years.

But for a 3D game it is remarkably difficult to judge distances and where you land after jumps, making it much harder to control that it would have to be. All you need is one bump, and you have no idea which way you have to turn to get back to the track. The ball itself blocks out a large part of the screen, making it even harder to judge where you are going to land. The controls are also very clunky - the all or nothing turning seems odd given that you could enable gyroscope controls that would make the process much smoother.

Sadly the developer no longer seems to develop the app any longer.
