Fun passing of time at best
So the concept behind this game is really interesting and very addicting. But besides that this is simply your very basic dime a dozen game that was clearly made with the intent to make money rather than to make an entertaining and fun game. First of all the ads are rampant in this one. That’s nothing new and it’s been far worse in the past, it’s still really annoying. (I would recommend turning off your cellular data for this game in settings and just play with data and all the ads will be gone). The other thing is while this game isn’t necessarily a buggy mess it still has some huge game breaking bugs that at times makes me want to throw my phone across the room. The most annoying one is when you hit a green arrow right before you reach the bottom and it will break the bottom block and you’ll just be suspended in air forever and the only way to fix this is to restart the game which resets your score and level. (I got a score of 390,000 just to have this happen to me. Other bugs include things like teleporting through walls and the platform you’re on breaking but these are barely noticeable and not even a big problem. In conclusion this is a fun passing of time if you can find someway to disable the ads but the game lacks polish and doesn’t share the spirit of game development that other games have and in the end just seems like a large quick grab for money.
Even if you can look past all the ads in this game, I personally can’t shake the feeling that the developer is just trying to take advantage of me. I have a weird relationship with these kinds of games in general, probably because I play them a bit more seriously than other people, but it really just boils down to high scores. In this game, there used to be a system where every time you passed a level, you kept the points from the previous level, and they kept carrying over until you died. This made high scores fun to shoot for, as you could technically go on to infinity if you had the patience. However, once you’ve played one level, you’ve played them all, and with the fairly recent removal of the aforementioned scoring system, I have no reason to open this anymore. I only keep the app so my high score doesn’t get removed and the sliver of hope I have that the system gets reinstated or the levels get some kind of improvements. The other thing that is more of a minor annoyance is the fact that it’s literally impossible to get all of the ad-locked balls. You can get all but one, and then you’ll never get the offer to watch another ad. I don’t really see why, because this seems like it would at least give the devs a tad bit of money. Maybe my game’s all bugged out or something, but I’m sick of waiting for the devs to fix these issues on their own and I’d rather just (hopefully) bring some attention to this.

I honestly wish I could give this five stars but there’s just a few things that moved it down to four. First, the add glitches. I’m pretty chill about adds in general but one thing that annoys me is that it says “watch an add to continue” but sometimes if I just cleared a bonus level for some reason, the next level when I die the “watch an add to continue button either doesn’t give me an add or just won’t start the add, and after about 30 seconds my game closes and when I start it back up it just gives me two 20 second adds. Another problem is the lag. After I get a rush or just in general, the game starts having a mental breakdown and lags to the point to where I have to close the game to turn my internet off and back on. All in all the game could use a bit of fixing but it’s actually a pretty good game. It definitely helps boredom and just something about it is just kinda satisfying. I tend to have panic attacks frequently so this game definitely helps me relax and loosen my mind a bit. I recommend this as a boredom cure and just a fun thing to do.
Just so you know don’t download this cuz I said it helps my panic attacks, I’m probably just weird. Don’t have a seizure and be like, “oH, tHIs peRsOn sAiD It hELps pAniC attCkS, So iMa plaY tHis iNSTeAd oF gETiNg mEdiCaL heLp!
Having trouble with ads??
This is a awesome game. Time will pass really quickly. My favorite part is how the levels don’t get any harder it’s the same levels. I really like how easy yet challenging it is to pass a level. I do thinks that it was more fun when the levels were a bit more of a challenge. But there is one thing. On an iPad the game is smooth and great, but when I play it on my phone then it gets really glitchy and it pauses and makes me loose the level. I really love this game but I can’t enjoy it on my phone. I wish that there was a switch in the settings that could make it easier or harder. Because I have seen a lot of people like how easy it is and a lot who think that it is too easy and needs more challenge aspects
If you are having troubles with the ads I have found a hack. The app works without WiFi and data so. If you turn your phone to airplane mode then all the ads will disappear because it can’t load them. I hope this was helpful.
Also after I downloaded the update it keeps on asking me to verify that I am over the age of fifteen and that it has my consent to use personal data to give me certain ads. Well I don’t know what that is and I would please like some help. It is really annoying and is making me want to get rid of the game
Developer, plz read
I would’ve given this game 5 stars, but the annoying intro when u log onto the game is so annoying, I gave it 3 stars. The intro shows the Helix ball going through all ur lvls u previously passed and I’m on lvl 222, so that takes forever to finish. Whenever an ad came on, I would’ve just exit the game and log back on, but now that that annoying intro keeps interfering and wasting time, I don’t even bother logging back onto the game. You may think that that intro is preventing Helix jump players from skipping the ads, but in reality ur preventing Helix jump players from playing ur game. Get rid of that intro or make it wayy shorter, and this review will jump to 5 stars. If u want to developer, respond to my message but I don’t need u to. I’ll know u read this if u got rid of the intro/make it wayy shorter
That was my old review, but now I can’t even play the game at all cuz it’s stuck on the loading screen. And what’s more? The developer never responded to my last review, so this shows me that the developer doesn’t read the recent reviews. Now my review has dropped from 3* to 1*. If the developer would just fix the app MAJORLY, then it would jump to 5*, but no. I can already tell that that is not gonna happen and this game is officially too messed up to be fixed. Most players have already been playing for a long time and therefore do not want to start over, so that’s all I have to say.
I'm not here because I think my review is going to improve the game at all. Voodoo never listens to reviews and lashback, I'm just letting future players know what theyre getting into. The game is amazing but practically unplayable. Voodoo has so many games with millions of players, and i don't understand why they need so many adds. They would get significantly more players if people didn't quit playing because they were frustrated with the amount of adds. If they were to cut the adds in half, they would make just as much (possibly more) ad revenue due to more players playing for longer instead of rage quitting. When you die in a match, the game asks you if you want to watch an add to keep your progress. I usually say no as i can (on a good round) finish the round in the time it takes me to get through an add. But they give me an add anyway!! It doesn't matter if I say yes or no, it's just a matter of keeping my progress or not! Voodoo cares nothing for they're players, wants nothing but ad revenue, and doesn't care if they make a game miserable or not. They put no thought into making a game that is actually enjoyable for players and see every game as just another source of money that we inevitably end up giving them
Good review with a little changes that has to be ✅.
By the good side
I really love this game, especially the green boosters. Today I got to one hundread thousand and my brother is calling me a try hard. I just love this game and I really want this game to go on and on for years and keep upgrading to the top. The only problem I have with helix jump is the skips. You only get 1 or 2 ads to get back in the game. and I wish there were about like 5 ads to stay in the game per game. The reason I thing helix jump should have more than one or two ads because, if you are in a match where you are about to beat your high score, you can us ads so you can stay alive. and also, I wish helix jump would have the standings. for people who play all around the world should get rewards for our standing if we move higher up. I really think helix jump should have standings because it can be competitive for others and people will play it more. Other than that I am really addicted to this game and I do not want to stop anytime. I really want this game to last for decades over decades over decades. By a user named Rylee
Ads ruin it
I downloaded it on a whim because it was popular and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It was fun at first, and the little video saving thing was very helpful if I was only a few away from the end. But the ads, and their obvious greed for money. For one, they cram ads ANYWHERE they can. There are ads at the bottom constantly, there are ads after you “die”, there are ads when you reach a new level, there are ads when you restart a level, there is an ad on the side of the screen before you start a game. I’ve had a ad play just because I took to long to start playing/bouncing. And I’ve had an ad play in the middle of a game. This is unacceptable. Keep the ads to maybe after you “die” (short ads), when you progress to a new level, and the helpful video that can be the difference between finishing the level and not, beating your high score and not. But recently, the button just doesn’t work. Now, I’m not sure if that’s just a glitch or if they started doing that to be sneaky, but either way it needs to be fixed.
The only reason I gave this 2 stars and not one was because it can actually be an enjoyable game to pass the time, if you don’t mind the ads.
PS. I kept my WiFi on for the emergency video save but now that it isn’t working I’m considering turning it off to get rid of the ads
Much fun, except.......

I love this game, but a few minor things NEED to be fixed. The intro is 👏 so 👏
l o n g 👏! I know people that are far past level 1,000+ who hate the intro because it takes up so much time. Many people have time limits on their phones and I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them never really played because of the intro. Yes, I suppose, that you could just not completely close the app in the background, but that, over time, takes up. a lot of battery. If the intro is made optional or faster, then this game could TOTALLY get five stars. There are also a lot of ads, which knew give the game money, but can get super annoying, and make the game run slow loading for an add, right when you tap the screen to start the next level. There are also little ads of other of these little games, which never really get in the way, but they are still annoying. This is a very popular game and I know so many people that play it, so the people who make it don’t really need to pay for advertising on other games, so why have so many ads on your own? Anyway, if you are planning to download this game here are some warnings but you should totally get it because it is so much fun!
Is it just me
Ok this game is great. Don’t get me wrong. It’s really nice. I play it all the time. Now there are a few things i could do without. Number one, the adds. Maybe it’s just me but the adds are always the same and pop up after every 3 tries. It just gets really annoying. I always just get frustrated and play a different game. I suggest switching up the adds sometimes and playing them less often. That would be amazing. Second issue, the glitches. This, for me, is the biggest problem because the glitches on my device are super bad. Is it just me? Like I can’t even go two “bars” before it glitches and I die. I even have to turn off WiFi just to be able to play it continuously. That gets really annoying having to turn it off and on. So, I suggest finding out whatever bug that is and fixing it. That would make the game a LOT more enjoyable. Honestly other than that, I’m on level 209 and it’s super fun. This game is a great way to pass time and it doesn’t require internet connection. I don’t have Cellular data so it helps a bunch for car rides. Anyway thanks for reading my review. I will continue to play this game and I would like to say thank you and well done to the producers of Helix Jump. Bye 👋.
