Already maxed out!
I’ve already maxed out at the highest level and I’ve only downloaded this game yesterday.... it’s super fun, and I really enjoy it. Especially because I don’t like a whole lot of games.... BUT this app needs a major upgrade... 1) it would be better if there was an option to just have like a free for all by your self, where you can kind of practice and have fun without the 2 minute limit. Also an option to pick a map would be great. 2) this game really needs to be live. We need to be playing against real people and not the bots. I’ve found this game way to easy playing against the same old bots... 3) this game also needs some new maps... turning the map in a different direction doesn’t make it any harder for me. again, I’ve only been playing this since yesterday and I’ve already figured out all the tricks to winning. It’s way to easy 🤷🏼♀️ 4) lastly this game has some major glitches. For instance, in the battle royale, if you and the last person are as big as you can get, there is no beating the other person. I literally have to exit out of the whole game and start all over again. On top of that the game has many glitches which I WOULD HOPE the developer knows about.... INVEST some time and money into this app and it can very well be one of the top ones. It takes a lot for me to like a game, and I really enjoy this one and another one by this developer.... fix the game and I’ll fix my rating to a 5 star.
So Much Fun, But So Little Time...
The concept of this game is really amazing. It’s a fun mechanic and you really have to eat used to the physics, it’s challenging to eat things when small but just as challenging when you ran a group of buildings and they all get stuck trying to go down. I notice some choppy lag when you’re getting bigger, hopefully some polishing can be done to make that a little better. My major complaint is the game modes, and I can’t understand how the devs went wrong on this. You have a 2 minute top score mode against a bunch of computer players which is somewhat interesting but tires quickly. Next, you have a battle mode with no time limit, but the bots will zero in on you when they know they’re bigger than you so it feels unfair and rushed. Outside of local multiplayer, you have a solo mode that makes the game, no bots to deal with and no goals besides eating everything... but again you have only two minutes. It can take a quarter of that time just to find things to get bigger when you’re small, and by the time you’re just big enough to have fun you’re out of time. Why do this??? This type of mode needs more time, but honestly a solo mode with no time limit at all would be an absolute game-changer, pitting all these restrictions on the fun hollows the experience and leaves you frustrated and wanting more. I would love to increase the rating if the devs would allow us to enjoy the game the way we should be able to, it just doesn’t make sense not to.
It gets boring over time...
This is a great game but make sure you have a name that is okay with your parent or guardian. It’s really fun and it’s pretty much completed already so if you don’t like those skins, too bad. It’s all you get. I have all the skins and once you get all the skins and have enough coins or something they can add, you should be able to make your own hole and customize it as you go. They should also let your hole you equipped level up and every time the hole you have equipped levels up, you should get an award like coins (if they add that) or something else. Also if you fully level up you should have a really big award. I think the game would be better if they had that but they don’t. I mean if it gets too flashy it’s just ruined but AT LEAST make it more fun! Over time it’s just boring when you become a pro. It is a really fun game and I highly suggest this game to basically everybody. It has a little of everything so it’s pretty good. But be warned! Like I said, this may end up being one of the apps you forget about for a year then end up deleting. But like I said it is pretty good until you basically complete all the normal levels and get all the skins so don’t rush to complete it. It also has different modes to satisfy you. I LOVE battle royal mode! It’s my personal fave!
Great app with MINOR problems
I really really totally love the game. 100% adore it. But I have ONE tiny problem. The game is too predictable. You always know what happens next. The game starts, you try to swallow everything, you win. Big deal. People who have had it for a long time or even a few months will get bored and skip to a new game like the human race does. But I think I have helpful suggestions to improve that. I think it would be better if you added more modes or skins. Just to mix it up a bit. Give it some spice. Like maybe if you did a limited edition skin once and a while and you had to do something really hard but not unrealistic to get it. I also think that you should put power-ups in the game. Like, ones that are really hard to come by. Like one that will make you immune to getting swallowed for 1:00 or super speed or a double size up. I also think that it would be cool if instead of the worlds not being chosen by the player, they get to choose the world they play in. That way they can choose a challenge, or stay in their comfort zone and not be disappointed when the world they wanted to be in isn’t the one they’re in. But other wise I really like the game and really enjoy playing. I hope you consider my suggestions. You really don’t have to because I’m just an 11 year old girl so it doesn’t matter.
Fun but it’s 100% AI opponents
Game is really fun, very challenging, and addictive. But there are a few issues: I have a 256GB iPhone 10 w/> 200GB free space. No other apps running in the background, but Hole will slow down to a crawl, sometimes 1 or 2 FPS, and sometimes lock up completely for 5 secs or more. This only started with the new version and seems to mainly be in Battle games. Perhaps an optimization is all that’s needed there.
But - and this is what’s puzzling to me - after starting a 2 min game a few minutes ago, I had to stop playing about 30 seconds in so I hit my home button to forfeit my game. 15 or 20 mins later, I went back into Hole but the game I abandoned was still there and was where I’d left it with about 1:30 remaining and “folks” running around grabbing small items and whatnot. I don’t see how this would be possible in a real-time game. It then occurred to me that all this time I’ve been “competing” against 100% AI characters and no real opponents. I’d always thought it was interesting how a game trying to sync 20 players could start instantly with no wait time. Plus I noticed right off that the majority of ‘opponent’ names are an adjective and a noun together. The realization I’m only playing with myself [giggity] made it a deal breaker for me.
Make it again but this time rely on PLAYER VS PLAYERS and make the AI levels an optional level rather than mandatory. THAT would be a game I’d be interested in playing. Game deleted.
Potential was & is very much high, just NOT living up to it!
This used to be a very fun, addictive, & challenging game! Unfortunately, a while back last year or so they redesigned ALL 3 of their course maps that changed the values, animation, look of every piece of each course map! I still somewhat enjoy playing it as you can lose yourself in trying to beat your own score, but the “redesign” features have totally served as a downgrade! It does at times have bugs or glitches with the use of animated holes that you can choose as your avatar, but works much better with very little interruptions if you choose just a solid color! This too makes it a bit less appealing! The last critical but constructive criticism I can offer in the slim chance ANYONE in development cares enough to reads this is the lack of course maps! There’s only 3 & each are “random” in which you might play! If given the opportunity to set the course maps to random or the course map of your desired choice, that would 100+% offer a nice touch for the player, but the expansion of offering MORE course map choices would definitely make the game infinitely more invaluable! I rate it a 2 overall because of the flawed redesigns & lack of creative expansion, but the game itself deserves a solid ranking between a 4.5 - 5 depending on your attention span & ability to accept a constant 2 min. gameplay experience.
P.S PLEASE ADD NEW COURSE MAPS & CHOICE OF WHICH TO PLAY/RANDOM! 👍
Only play A.I.
By Aaron Melloy
Game is overall amazing, but unfortunately it is only played by A.I.. If there is actual players I just don’t see it. The movements of these so called “real” players do not appear like free-thinking people. In today’s society, I also know there would be names that literally stand out and not once have I seen it (you know...vulgar/outlandish). I have gotten to max rank and I wish there were stats but I know I’m at a 90%+ 1st place finish (with the exception of a few I finished in top 3 or quit cause I had slow start). If I was versing against real players I know I would fair okay but never that good. A.I. becomes predictable and easily defeated so long as you keep playing very aggressive. This is what keeps my review from becoming 5 star. I have unlocked everything in 2-3 days and that’s literally like 3-5 hours of play due to work and home life. 2 maps with random creator is good and all but needs more. Definitely more to unlock needs to be available (especially if you only play A.I. cause way to easy).
For those of you who hate ads...here’s my advice. Finish the game, when it shows scores/leaderboard, hit “Continue” and then close app immediately and then reopen. You can literally jump right back into a game in 5 seconds, skip the ad, and keep your score. I’m all about farming and this grind was laughable at best... Great concept, poor follow-thru.
Really Good but Missing Something
This game is super addicting and fun. Eating the city and everything in it is super satisfying. However, I think the app is missing something. I read some of the other reviews and many of them suggested adding more maps. I like this idea because you could eat things in different places. But along with some terrain changes I think I'd be cool if the year wasn't always the same. Eating things during a famous war would be cool. And eating in a futuristic era would be too. Also, I think there should be a larger reward when you win a round. It's hard to win this game sometimes and I'd appreciate being rewarded when I do. I like the idea of getting a certain amount of stars based in how you place, but we can only use them to make your rank higher. I think it would be more fun if we could use the stars for more things. Like unlocking new maps or getting more colors. If these small changes are added to the game then there would be a reason to try and win. If I have a goal to reach then I will probably play the game more often. Don't get me wrong this app is really good. It's a quick thing to do when I'm bored and it helps relieve some of my stress. I will continue playing this app no matter what, but I would play it even more if these changes were made.
Love this game but...
(This is gonna be long 😆) So I know that you guys probably read/heard about people saying there should be different places to play. And yes, I totally agree but there’s a lot more that I would like to see! I would want to have the satisfaction of eating the whole town and 2 minutes is not enough time for me. So maybe change the mode to you choose the time limit (so you can challenge yourself) or no time limit at all and just go till you eat the whole town. Now...About the time limit again...2 minutes! I know that probably seems reasonable to you all but not to me. You guys probably have your reasons but here are my reasons. You spend probably more than half of your time trying to get big enough to kill other people and/or swallow buildings. But you have to get small things first like people, trees, street lights, exc. Then when you get big enough and you are ready for all of the fun, your match is over... And it all repeats. So that’s all the negative aspects but now for the positives. This game is no doubt super addictive and I absolutely love it all! I haven’t got bored of it yet. And since it doesn’t require WiFi I always have something to do on road trips. Hands down my favorite game right now. I would (and have) recommended it to my friends and my family.

I played this game a lot when it first came out and I loved it. I won some I lost some but either way it was still a competition. I love how you added all new stuff since I stopped play. But there are some problems.
I can’t see behind most buildings like before and sometimes even get eaten. Battle mode is the worst, only one o tried to far, hopefully other are better. It just seems so one sided. Yea I haven’t played in about a month or more but I didn’t forget how to play. Like 80% of the games I get eaten up by someone who’s already max before I even level up once. It’s kind of annoying. T wasn’t this way before. I accidentally won the first game I played, the rest of the games, I was lucky if I lasted a min. And I’m not against ads but if I’m only playing 30 seconds games I don’t want to be bombarded with ads. I wish this game could be a little more like the original .IO game (I think Argio) where the smaller ones had a slight advantage cuz the went faster, though not by much. Are there new power ups in the game I’m not aware of yet? Like some that make them bigger or faster? I wouldn’t mind this but can you try to match people who are at the same level give or take a few.
AGAIN 5 star game when it first started and still has spite too. To have 5stars, but needs some bugs fix, and make the game fair for people to actually play.
