Geometry Dash Review
Nowadays, there is no shortage of games to install on your device so you always have an opportunity to find something that you like regardless of the genre. Most people play games on their phones and tablets whenever they are bored or have some time to spare, like when standing in line or waiting in traffic. Geometry Dash is one of those applications that can be considered perfect time killers, as it’s entertaining, immersive, and challenging. If you want to know what this application is all about, this review is for you.
Graphics represent an important factor that either makes people want to continue playing the game or not. When it comes to Geometry Dash, the graphics are excellent and involve very bright and saturated colors, which is something that contributes to the appeal of the game and also attracts children to it. The colors of the background and additional elements change depending on the level so you don’t get bored with the same color scheme, which can definitely happen when playing a game of this type that requires constant repetitive actions.
Geometry Dash is an action platform that is music-themed and gives users an opportunity to test their reaction and have fun. This game features the main character, which is a square, and you have to move it through a variety of levels by overcoming the obstacles on your way. The way you control the character is by simply tapping the screen, which has become a standard for other games in this genre. When playing the game, you will notice that at some points a square gets transformed into a rocket, thus allowing you to fly over the obstacles. As it was mentioned previously, music plays a huge role in this game as you can sync your jumps with the music, which makes it easier for you to know when to make your move.
If you are a fan of these types of games, you will definitely find it extremely addictive. At the same time, it can be quite frustrating because when you make a mistake and the character you play dies, you have to go back to the beginning of the level. This approach makes the game more challenging but also more exciting as you have to grow your skills and concentrate to be able to successfully finish all the levels, even the ones that are defined as easy. As the difficulty of levels increases, the game requires more accurate movements, so you may need a lot of practice to get it right the first time.
The game can be enjoyed by children and adults alike, but it may be too challenging for smaller kids because of the fact that you have to start the level all over again every time you make a mistake.
Similarly to other applications, the game includes the practice round, which will definitely help you familiarize yourself with the way music gives you clues on when you need to jump.
When you complete the levels and continue with the game, you get an opportunity to unlock new colors and icons to customize your character, which undoubtedly gives you a sense of achievement in this frustrating game.
As it was mentioned previously, the square is controlled by tapping the screen, which makes it jump. When you need the character to skip over the ramps, you should simply hold the screen and move your finger. At the moments when the square turns into a rocket, touching the screen makes it fly higher over the obstacles while when you remove the finger, the rocket starts to descent slowly. In such a way, you can control the movement of the rocket to achieve your goal of finishing the level. But, it may take some time and dedication to get it right.
Music tracks definitely help with choosing the right time to do your jumps, so you should pay attention to them.
Some people have mentioned that sometimes the character doesn’t react fast enough when you tap the screen, but it’s something that can occasionally happen in any other app of this kind.
Replay Value 5/5
Geometry Dash has the replay value and the main reason for that is an opportunity to create your own levels in the paid version of the application. You can come up with as many levels as you want and even share them with friends, which gives you numerous opportunities to explore the game even when you complete all the levels offered by the app. In addition to that, the fact that the app doesn’t have a plot, which can make it boring to play again, you can come back to it for distraction whenever you want and you can be sure that it will still be challenging.
The original Geometry Dash application with all the features, including a chance to create your own levels, is paid and there are no in-app purchases. There are also other free versions of the application, such as Geometry Lite and Geometry World and they also don’t come with any in-app purchases.
Geometry Dash is an excellent application for anyone who enjoys action and likes games that are thrilling and require accuracy and great reactive skills. It’s one of those games that can be perfect for some people and too nerve-wracking for others, so it’s up to you to decide to which category you belong. When it comes to the factors, such as graphics and gameplay, there are no complaints and the application works just the way it’s supposed. In the majority of cases, controls work fine but rare delays in the reaction of the character can be annoying, so it’s something that may require some improvement. Overall, the application undeniably deserves your attention if you are looking for something to save you from boredom.
Geometry Dash is one of the best gaming applications in its genre available right now and it’s definitely both challenging and exciting.
