Decent game, impossible challenges
By Awesome Luke 926
I decided to get this game after it was recommended by a friend of mine. The gameplay concept is pretty good. It’s a pretty good background game that really tests your quick thinking skills and your ability to make quick decisions while it’s at it. Despite the concept being pretty decent, however, I do have some issues with the game.
This game has 50 challenges to go through, ranging from getting a high score, staying alive for a certain amount of time, or even dying in a certain amount of time. Although I really appreciate the addition, the challenges get repetitive with many just being harder versions of previous challenges. And once the challenges started to crank up in difficulty, I started having a much harder time with them. I’m currently having trouble in the mid-30’s; in many challenges, all of your progress can vanish away so easily, and it’s really annoying. It’s weird because the game makes you feel like you have choices, when really everything is completely random and at the end of the day it’s up to the game if you win or not. And even if you feel like going back to the standard gameplay afterwards, that becomes too easy after going through the rigorous challenges. Unfortunately, I will probably put this game down soon.
And one final note, I’ve seen a lot of reviewers that say that there’s a ton of ads, but I’ve barely seen any in my play-through. Just a heads-up.
I gave this game 5 stars because of the following reasons. First, almost no adds show up at all which I find is great because I read reviews and amazing apps get 3 stars just because there are a lot of adds. Second of all, You know that feeling when you have had a rough day and all you want to do is relax but you are too stressed out to? Well this game is your melatonin. When you start playing, all you care about is breaking those number blocks and nothing else🥰. Lastly, in this game, everything is possible. What I mean is this, let’s say in front of you was a block of fifty and you only have four. Guess what, potentially you could win and I’ll tell you how. If you won the game before that and started with 100 then ended with 50 you would still win that round because the way you die is if you have 17 and the block in front of you is 19 then you die but if the block in front of you also had 17 you wouldn’t die you would have 0. Anyways, super good game you should totally try it 🤩
Awesome job with this app but you could make a few changes to it
This app is AMAZING!!!
I really think that it is soothing and it calms you down, for example: my brother always wants to play on my iPad when he is mad juts so he can play this game. I think it is a wonderful app but the color for each and every level you reach are driving me NUTS! The reddish color is so hard to see the actual blocks because they look the same and it makes you dizzy when you are on a color that is perfect (like the baby blue background with the teal and navy blue blocks) and then the next level is your least favorite color, maybe you should add a button to press and lets you pick the background color and the block colors to make the game a little bit more creative and colorful and more fun to play. I love the app when you can play against other people who are playing and when you get ranked at the end, but the thing that bothers me is the button that takes you back to the level you were just on or the other way around, but anyways i think that can change. Other than everything i said to fix i think the app passed my inspection test. Thank you for creating this app, it is one of the best i have played in a while!!
Great game ..... but

Ok so personally i really like this game but there are a are a couple of problems that I think you can fix that will make this game a whole lot better number 1. THE ADS there are way to many ads after every level there is at least one ad and they are very long most of them are 30 seconds long sometimes you can skip them but most of the time you have to wait which makes the game really boring so please fix that number 2. THERE ARE ALOT OF GLITCHES sometimes in the middle of me playing there is a glitch and then it freezes and then I have to restart my whole entire phone which is so annoying and this has happened to me multiple times so please fix these two problems and then this game would be a whole lot better apart from the two problems here everything else about this game is great

If you’re like me, you got bombarded with ads for this game. I downloaded it with low expectations that weren’t met.
Now, this is a Ketchapp game, so it goes without saying that there were an abundance of ads that play every time your character dies. I understand that ads are needed to make money but the ads pop up just where you are trying to tap to retry, and I often tap on them by accident, opening up a whole new window.
Now to talk about the gameplay. The concept itself doesn’t seem that bad. But once you start playing, you find many flaws. Since you can’t see more than about three blocks ahead of you at any given time, it is often pure luck if you can find a block small enough to break. There are also some blocks with stars that make you invincible for a few seconds, but what happens when you hit them drives me insane. It causes my phone to start buzzing in my hands for no apparent reason, and I don’t need my phone vibrating WHILE I’M PLAYING A GAME.
The title of this review is “overrated because that’s exactly what it is. There are millions of downloads and many people seemed to love it. I think most of them are predisposed to like any Ketchapp game given enough constant advertising, but personally, I just find it really annoying.
Challenges: good idea bad execution.
The addition of 50 challenges was a good idea to break the monotonous single game mode and add some variety, however it was done so in such a poor way that it makes you want to stick to the original game mode. There are no rewards for completing any of the challenges (yet to see if there is a reward for completing all 50) and the later challenger are just more difficult re-skins of previous ones. Theres pretty much only 5 or 6 challenges bumped up at 10 difficulty levels so as to avoid making new and original content. Some of the challenges are entirely luck based as you need to go 300 meters in 30 seconds. This sounds like a nice, skill based challenge, but don't let it deceive you. You winning or losing is entirely dependent on weather the game spawns  squares or  -  squares because the amount of time it takes to break those  -  squares makes it impossible to finish. You have to hope you get all  squares or all but one or else you get to 295 meters at 30 seconds. This isnt skill this is luck. Make set levels and spawns for every challenge so you guys know its beatable every time. Also ads are everywhere.
Very fun game, but lagging can be frustrating
This game is very fun and engaging. I love the concept and how it takes the basic idea of snake and expands on it. I just discovered the challenges (the little trophy icon) and have had fun playing that as well as the other mode. It can be addicting to just play one more round and see how far you can get or how long you can make the snake.
My main issue with the game is the way it lags. This can be incredibly frustrating when you’re enjoying the game and making progress and you end up crashing into a block because the game just lags. It doesn’t make this game unplayable but it has made me lose or just close out the app out of frustration.
I also have to say that I dislike the constant ads, but it doesn’t feel much different from all the other ad heavy games I’ve played. It can be frustrating when you’re playing the challenge games and the ad just pops up, or if you accidentally hit the banner at the bottom and it ruins your progress.
WAY TO RIP PEOPLE OFF
I am extremely annoyed that I just paid $2.99 to “remove all ads.” I still have PLENTY of ads between rounds (it’s a short game each round which is why I felt it was worth it to get rid of the constant ads). This is such false advertising and as someone who is happy to pay for a fun app game, I would like to actually get what I’m told I was paying for... which was no ads. I’ve never had this problem with another game in the past that I actually paid for and if I knew the ads wouldn’t actually go away then I would have just kept playing the game for free. It is a fun game. The game is fun and I understood and felt it was acceptable to pay for it to be ad-free at the rate of 2.99, but once you pay you don’t even get it ad free. And sadly because it’s the AppStore, there’s not exactly a return policy for not getting what you were told to be paying for. A major rip off and I hope the developers change this although I just now read all the comments most recently posted that state the same issue so I doubt changes will be made. Wish I had read those comments prior to paying for the supposed “ad free” version.
Great game! But...

This is a simple, fun game to play if you have nothing to do. I downloaded it because of all those adds I got bombarded with on other games. I’m not complaining about the adds because it is a free game that has an option for you to pay to get rid of them. Just one thing...
I turned off my phone for a few to let it charge. Before I turned it off, I was playing this game for about 5 minutes to try to play the challenges. I turn back on my phone and unlock it and a pop up on my phone for this app comes on and it said “snake vs ball 2.99 add removal” or something like that. I decline and see it pop up 8 more times before I finally see it stop. I almost accidentally payed for it, but I didn’t want to because I don’t play this game enough to do that. That was not fair, almost as if the game was “pressuring me to buy it” or something. I actually don’t know why or how it did this, but it did. Ridiculous!
Fun- or at least was
This game is amazing. It’s addictive, and a great time passer that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Although this game was fun, certain things are pushing me to the edge of deleting it, which is a real shame since it’s such an amazing app and game.
The things nagging at me are that sometimes, when you are dragging your finger to move the snake, you will randomly appear on a screen on the App Store, so I will continuously have to go back and forth. Another problem is the snake’s movement. When I am moving the snake, I will have to apply and remove my finger so it will actually move. The very last thing is, I really wish the way you unlock ew snakes is not how many times you die, but how many points you get in a way.
I really hope you at least consider these suggestions, as they would make this game go back to my favorite, since this app used to be my favorite of them all. I really hope that you will know though that this game is amazing, and it may just be my device itself.
