At first I loved this game. There was not to many ads and the game was super satisfying. A couple WEEKS after playing the game there was so many ads I could not even play for a straight minute. Sometimes I would even start a game and then there would be an ad in the middle and I would die immediately. Also the reviving situation. When I died the button would come up. If my score was low I would just click out to restart. Most of the time I had to watch an ad anyway. Some of the ads were 30 seconds then you clicked the X button and it was another 30 seconds of boredom. Enough about ads for now. One of the problems is that when I found this game in the AppStore it says 12+. I am older than that so I downloaded it. When it finished installing I go on the app and a white screen appears saying I must be 15 and have read the private policy. I didn’t do either of those but I continued on anyway. I got on and the game was fine. After a couple DAYS it just kept glitching out. It is not my phone because my phone is literally the iPhone XS. I also feel like there should be a button to turn off the other peoples balls. They can b very distracting as well as annoying. If you could just add to setting something to turn it off that would be great. Sorry my review was so long but there is still lots more issues. I do not recommend this app especially if on your phone you have to pay for it.
Increased difficulty. Impossible unlocks.

Dune used to be one of my favorite time sinks, it really was "the smoothest game" but now that they have ratcheted the difficulty up (by making the required angle of landing so shallow) it has become incredibly jarring and frustrating. Not to mention that if you hit a certain area on the downslope, your ball bounces and hits the upslope at too steep of an angle, causing an automatic failure.
The game has you unlock more backgrounds, balls, and hill textures by completing certain objectives in-game. For instance: revive 20 times for a particular new ball. The problem is, they made it ridiculously difficult, if not impossible.
When I started working on this one in particular, it was simply annoying; you have to watch an advertisement to revive (this is understandable), but when you 'die' a second time, you have to watch ANOTHER ad. If you skip that ad or close app, the revival you just used doesn't count towards the unlock. That was irritating, to say the least, but I muscled through double advertisements. This is irritating to me because I know the Dev is getting paid twice for what should be a single ad revival, as it is in just about every other ad-supported game. Now I'm at 17 of 20 revives, and the game will not let me revive at all anymore. The purple 'Revive' button is entirely gone. If I can't unlock this ball, I'm automatically precluded from unlocking others in the future (EG: use X number of different balls).
Love this, but kind of annoying in some ways
Hi. So I love the game Dune, I have had it for a year and a half and I love it. (I just said that didn’t I?) Well, there is only a few things I don’t like. First off, I had this on my iPod touch before my iPhone and it was great. Now, I had to reinstall the app from the App Store and I couldn’t log in or anything and my iPod is broken so I lost all my coins and balls and backgrounds. Second, on my iPod, it doesn’t vibrate. There’s no way to make an iPod vibrate. It just doesn’t. So when I got my iPhone after my iPod got broken, my iPhone vibrates. I do NOT like the fact that Dune vibrates when you get a smooth landing or die. I do NOT like it and I wish there was a way to turn it off. Third, apparently, also Dune doesn’t show up in Settings with the other apps so I have no idea if I could turn it off vibrations or not. Thank you and please add a place where you can turn vibrations off!
EDIT: apparently I’m stupid or dumb or something and I just found out how to turn vibrations off in a matter of 10 seconds. Anyway please do consider the #1 I want my coins back please!! Thank you!
Best Game Ever!

This game is so much fun! I unlocked everything in such a short matter of time! The game is so addictive! At first it’s hard to get used to but after you get used to it it’s so much fun! This game has everything to offer! There’s fun challenges also! The new update of collecting coins is so much fun! Yes there is a lot of ads but you get to close out of them in a matter of 5 or less seconds! I definitely recommend this game! There is no cons about this amazing game! (No I’m not one of those fake people game creators hire to write good reviews!) I generally love this game and play it all the time! If your looking for a game that challenges you and is fun download this game! Keep up the great work creators!😁😍 The only thing I would complain about is when I first open the app and begin the game I will be mid air and a add will pop up, its kind of annoying but only happens when I first open the game.
Why? Just why?

Honest Dune Review
I used to absolutely be obsessed with this game, but ever since they made it a competition, I really don’t enjoy it. It might’ve been four stars if they didn’t make it harder. Why did they make it harder? Probably so you’d keep playing. But personally, I liked it when it wasn’t impossible. But that’s just me. If you like the new version of the impossible competition, congrats to you. Not trying to convince anyone not to play because it’s actually quite enjoyable but the competition aspect has made it more stressful instead of stress-relieving, which is what it used to be to me.
On the plus side, it doesn’t have many adds, which is quite unusual for a free game, and you get new balls, ground, and sky so you have variety.
This review could’ve been four stars if they didn't make it impossible to play, but because it is, I chose three stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
I hope this review was helpful to anyone debating downloading this game. Once again, this is just an honest Dune review from my perspective. I would recommend downloading the game just to try it out. Some people may enjoy the competition.
Thanks for reading. Hope it helped!🤓🤪
Liked it but one problem
This game has been one of my top favorites for a long time. I think t is so fun and I am addicted. It is kind of easy but has some really difficult points to the game as well. This has got to be one of my all time favorite games. I have one problem though. This game has so many ads!! First off, I know that free games like these are supposed to have ads, but this is just bad. I have other free games on my phone that are just as fun but don’t have nearly as many ads. This game has a revive feature to so if you die and are about reach your high score or something and want to be revived you can use this. The price to use it is just to watch an ad. One time I used the revive feature because I was about to pass my high score and was very excited but the ad didn’t let me X out of it. So I had to restart my game and I had watched that video for nothing. This has happened to me several times. And it is not because of the phone because my phone is brand new. Anyway, this game is nice and I think it is worth it but the ads are just very very annoying.
Small fixes much needed
I play this game almost every day, sometimes several times a day. I enjoy it so much that I paid for the ad-free version (also because the ads were extremely annoying). And unfortunately there are some minor problems that would make this game much better if fixed. One of them is when I choose to watch an ad in order to continue my streak in the main game, and after the ad is over, I lose my streak and have to start back at zero. It just happened to me where I was at almost 100 points when I crashed, so I chose to watch the ad to continue from where I left off, and when I got back to the game after the ad it started me back at the beginning with a score of “0”. This is one of very few games I’ve actually paid for. And things like that make me regret it.
Also, if the developers could add a “retry challenge” button at the end of a run that would take you directly to the beginning of the challenge instead of the challenges menu, that would be awesome. Would just make binge-playing a bit easier. ;)
Good game but ONE PROBLEM ☝️ 😠 :/
By DA REVEWER GURL :3
I downloaded the app because I saw it in an add. But then when i play, there, as u probably know if u play, is a purple button that pops up when u fail. You press and an ad pops up, and in return an extra life. But there’s a problem with this. Sometimes when I didn’t really get that far and didn’t care to save that progress, I didn’t press the button. But sometimes and ONLY SOMETIMES, an ad will pop up ANYWAY! Like, why even give us the option to press a “watch an add for another life!!” Button if you only do that when u press the button!? Even though this problem really bugs me, I like the game. 😒🙃
Edit: ok. It says in my last review (a month ago) all the stuff about the button with the extra life and stuff. I continued to play for a while and I get an update. BUTTTT...remember how I said that it only happened sometimes? Yes well when I got the update this problem happens ALL the time now!! OMG WHY! Over all this game is good but U PPL GOT TO CUT DOWN ON THE ADS! This is a really fun game and i don’t want to have to delete it because of all the ads. Pls fix this!!
Ps. Forgive meh for this being so long 👍
WAY to many ads!!
Ok, I normally don’t write reviews or get annoyed by ads, but this app just crossed the line. When I started playing Dune, it was fun, satisfying, and just fun to play with barely any ads. But after, maybe, 4-5 days after playing, it just started to get to hard and ads started popping up every 2 minutes. No, more like every 10 seconds. AND IM NOT EXAGGERATING!!! I will be in the middle of a level and BOOM, an ad! Sometimes you can’t even x the ad out and you have to close out the game. Once I was 1 point away from beating my high score and an ad came up, causing me to die!!!!! Now, I understand that ads keep the game running or whatever, but this is just to much. Here’s a suggestion for the people who made this game; it gets boring after a while, so maybe add like modes or something, for example maybe a “gravity” level where when you press down it goes up instead of down. Idk just a suggestion. Don’t get me wrong, this game is very fun, but the ads just cross the line. Honestly I don’t even know why I’m even writing this as I’m just another annoyed player and this will most likely be ignored.
