A Tough and Challenging Arcade Game
Arcade games are extremely interesting and a great time-pass for people looking to just entertain themselves in their free time. An arcade game worth its salt would have a simple gameplay with easy controls that ensure that the user doesn't need to invest too much energy into understanding how the game works and how to win within the game. However, a balance needs to be struck so that the game doesn't become too easy either. Twist is an arcade game with a simple premise and easy controls but offers a stronger challenge to people interested in playing the game.
The app's design is so simple and easy that it would take all of two seconds to understand the features of the game and how it works. The app has a touch to start game and this means that you can get started with playing the actual game without having to go through any difficulties. The other options available on the homepage are 'Settings', 'Shop', 'Achievements' and 'Leaderboard'. Settings allow for checking out the tutorial and changing the sound settings within the game. Shop section allows for changing the look and feel of the game with the purchase of different balls and floor tiles. Achievements and Leaderboard lets you compare your current standing within the game with that of other players of the arcade game.
The good thing about Twist is that it starts with a tutorial. The tutorial walks you through the game, its scoring scheme and its overall functionalities. It also introduces you to the very simple tap control and how you can use the control in order to get the desired effect. The basic premise of the game revolves around ensuring that the ball keeps hopping between the different tiles that twist and turn as you go forward. The main trick in the game is to time the hopping of the ball from one tile to another correctly as one mistake can end the game and your score would be reset. Since there is only one type of gaming mode in this game, there is no option of switching up the gaming modes to refresh yourself.
The graphics of the game are very simple and are good enough for the game's premise. The tiles are arranged very well with their twisting and turning offering a great challenge. The physics deployed in the game makes sense too with the speed of the ball staying consistent throughout. The easy tap control is also very simple and offers an easy option of moving the ball from one tile to another.
The main challenge with the game is that it is too difficult. There aren't multiple difficulty levels and therefore, you have to work with what you get. The game is tough as it requires you to tap at just the right moment every time in order to avoid the ball from reaching the end of any tile and falling down. The difficulty of the game can create problems as users can get frustrated with the lack of progress and leave the game entirely. Introduction of difficulty levels can help in this regard and can prove helpful in retaining all kinds of users.
