Perfect challenge:fun ratio!
I’ll admit, I didn’t love this game at first. I had to try it a few times, reluctantly. After beating the first level, I couldn’t put it down. I picked up some techniques like shooting at specific spots on the rounded edge and paying attention to the numbers to think about my strategy. At first I was shooting randomly and crashing often. I beat all the levels and was happily surprised by the black hole level. Brilliant! Got my whole family hooked on this game. I’m excited for future updates and improvements. The simplicity is a major draw, but it could be fun to have power-ups and other types of blocks, like maybe squared corners to make it more challenging or diamond shapes. Anyway, this is a SUPER fun game and I highly recommend it!!!
Enjoyable but meh, not worth the price
The play style of Holedown is solid! I love to aim the line at different angles and watch the onslaught of balls Ricochet off of everything, it’s satisfying! What’s not satisfying though is the 3 hours I spent going through the games worlds. They have an endless world however there is no sense to play because there is no variety in the abilities you purchase. Plus the boss battles at the end of each world are just the exact same boss but with a higher number to bring down to defeat it. Ugh!
That’s lazy. You guys could’ve made them different shapes, or have them move around or SOMETHING! Rather than the same circle of doom at the end of every level. This is definitely NOT worth $4 you all got greedy, this is a $.99 cent game up and down the board unless you have new worlds and abilities planned for the future.
Shame really, because it feels really great to play, oh well.
A satisfying, but short experience.
Really satisfying feel to the gameplay. Could use more upgrades, more levels, more something. Maybe a challenge mode with blocks that have their own characteristics (flipping blocks on/off so the player has to time shots), or with balls that behave differently (arching maybe), or the board acts differently (moves up with time, not moves), or with a time limit.
Not sure why I can continue to catch crystals when I’m playing the endless level and have all the upgrades, wish there was something to still put those toward.
Really fun, was worth $4 to me, but I’d understand if someone were to say it was too much money for the experience.
