Geometry Dash is a top rated runner-platformer for mobile devices that was launched at first in 2013 by Robert Topala and his company RobTop Games and designed later for PCs. Geometry Dash seems to be a simple game without anything special in it, but it’s just on the first appearance.
While playing the first mission, you understand that only patient people will find this game entertaining because it will definitely make you nervous for the first time. Prepare yourself to control figures in a two-dimensional world, calculate distances between platforms, make jumps and die a lot!
Graphically Geometry Dash is stunning. It has a futuristic pixel style with vibrant colors and dynamic animations. The game’s gorgeous-looking visuals won’t distract you from the gameplay, rather complete the appearance.
The colors change rapidly throughout the game which looks nice, but a quick changing of frame rate can be confusing sometimes. Each track has a special color and design. In addition to own color, it also has a smile, which can range from happy to furious one.
Your primary task in Geometry Dash is to complete at least one level until the end. It sounds pretty easy, but when you start playing, you realize that you need some skills to win. However, if you don’t avoid an obstacle, you die and start over. You play with a figure that transforms into seven different forms which all behave in own ways and have various features.
In addition to jumps, you'll also have to lead some additional figures at particular levels or play upside down which will be certainly confusing for you after completing levels in a regular way. Somewhere you might get a few bounce pads, circles for double jumps, special spheres that let you fly in the air, tricks for gravity changing and other interesting mechanics. There are also some special portals which allow you to pass through them and change a figure’s size, speed, gravity, teleport or a character entirely. Along the way, you will have a chance to collect three secret coins on each level which are usually hidden in some hard-to-reach places.
All of the levels are unlocked from the beginning so that you can play them out of order. Moreover, there is a practice mode available which allows you to save checkpoints and go back to them when you’re dying instead of starting over again. If you complete a level, you will get diamonds and orbs that can be used to purchase various in-game bonuses.
There are 20 levels in the game in total, and you’ll not complete them shortly. You will need to have a good reaction and make a lot of attempts to learn the track. Despite the complex gameplay, the controls are easily managed with only one button. It is fine if you get lost whenever you see small platforms with a huge distance between each other. Just keep in mind the fact that this distance doesn’t change, so you simply need to figure out a right time to start your jump and click a button on the mouse. You can’t control the speed of the icon’s moving, only if you don’t have a special changing portal. So you will have to train your reaction and a clicking speed for the first time.
Replay Value 3.5/5
As I mentioned above, Geometry Dash is for patient people because playing it will likely make you nervous rather than relaxed. Endless dying and starting over, again and again, isn’t a favorite playing model for most of the people. Therefore, even if you try playing this game, I can’t guarantee that you will find it incredibly entertaining.
However, for those players who satisfied with such gameplay, RobTop prepared an interesting feature - creating own levels. There is a pretty solid editor in the game, and with its help, you can set up platforms, dangers, boosts, different songs to complement your creation and much more. In a case when you don’t have enough creativity, you can try plenty of various user-generated levels made by other players in the game. You can find them by setting filters for popular levels or the most complicated with three more categories. So it's hard to be bored in this game because it always gets updates.
Geometry Dash is one of the nicest offers on any game market because its price is only $4 and it doesn’t have any in-app purchases which makes the game easy to enjoy.
Geometry Dash is an enjoyable game with amazing visuals and a highly challenging gameplay. You will need to have some patience because this game might be a little bit frustrating sometimes, but you can always complete the levels by using the practice mode or change a regular level to any user-generated one. Get the game and try to jump your way to the end.
Geometry Dash is a highly entertaining game with a complex gameplay and easy controls that will test your luck and patience.
