Geometry Dash review
Geometry Dash review
Geometry Dash is an extremely fast-paced 2D platformer with rhythm-based gameplay – that means the levels are in sync with the soundtrack. But that doesn’t make the game any easier, so prepare for a real challenge.
Basically, the Geometry Dash gameplay is traditional for a 2D platformer: you play as a colorful cube that is sliding, jumping, and flying through levels full of black spikes and other dangers. Your job is to make sure the cube finishes a level without touching any of those traps. However, that’s not an easy task since the levels are designed to be nearly impossible to complete – without a considerable amount of practice, at least. It may even be a frustrating experience sometimes, but that just makes success feel more satisfying.
Anyway, the game has a unique feature that makes it stand out of the platformer crowd – its levels are in sync with the soundtrack, so they follow a distinct rhythm that you can follow. That doesn’t seem to make the game easier – but it definitely makes it ten times more fun. There are also all kinds of achievements you can earn to feel even better about yourself.
The graphics are not that breathtaking – after all, you play as a cube, and all of the levels are made of various geometric figures. But it suits the game rather well, and there are all kinds of bright colors, so it looks decent, and you’re probably going to enjoy it. And then there are all kinds of skins and customizable faces that can be applied to your cube, and that adds a lot of fun to the game.
Replay Value 5/5
The replay value of Geometry Dash is extremely high. There are literally hundreds of unique levels, and some of them will take many tries to complete. That means the game can be played for weeks, months even – but it seems to be a positive thing for a mobile platformer. After all, you play them to waste some time.
The controls are pretty simple: your cube slides through levels on its own, and you have to just make it jump at the right times. That takes only a single tap, so you can play the game with just one finger. And these controls are not unique for this iOS version of the game – it plays like this on other platforms, too.
One of the best platformers for iOS, Geometry Dash, offers addictive yet hardcore gameplay with customizable avatars and various achievements.
