Helix Jump Review Information
At the time of this review, Helix Jump was one of the top five free games on Google Play, and I was curious to see why. So I played the game to review it.
- I played Helix Jump on my LG V20 smartphone.
- I played the game for two days, and I played the game until level 13.
Helix Jump Gameplay Review
What Kind of Game Is Helix Jump?
Helix Jump is an action game, and the goal is to bounce a ball to the bottom of levels. You swipe the level left and right to make sure your ball gets to the bottom. As you beat levels, they start to have danger sections.
You need to avoid touching these sections as you lose the level if you do. Your ball builds up power as you fall past gaps in floors, and this means it is an advantage to take risks.
The Game Is Simple and Fun
I found myself enjoying this game quite a bit. While the game is very simple, I like the action-based game play. I quite enjoyed trying to figure out the best path to take and dodging the killer red sections.
The game is straight to the point. The only goal is to beat levels and bounce your way to the bottom.
Second Chance to Keep Playing
When you die, sometimes the game offers you a second chance and lets you continue playing where you are after watching a video ad. I admit I used this sometimes on hard levels.
Helix Jump Presentation Factor Review
No Menus or Options
The game drops you right into the game without any menus or introduction. This is a bit odd, but I guess it works fine. You cannot replay levels and must go forward.
Basic 3D Graphics
The game has very basic 3D graphics. The graphics remind me of basic 3D props you can make in a game engine like Unity. Everything is functional though so I can’t complain.
The sounds this game has is very basic, and there is no music. The sound I remember the most is the sound of the ball bouncing.
Helix Jump Spending Factor Review
The only thing you can buy is the option to remove ads and the price to remove ads is an OK price at $2.50.
Annoyance Factor Review
There Are Multiple Ads
The amount of ads in this game is quite annoying. There is a tiny banner ad almost always on screen, and I particularly dislike these types of ads as they are extremely distracting.
There are ads between levels, but since you can die in this game very fast, this could mean seeing many ads. The price to pay to remove ads is not too high though.
This Is a Great Game to Play Offline
This game is a great example of using what I call the airplane mode trick. If you don’t need anything that requires online access any time soon turn on airplane mode. You will not see any ads since they will not load. You will not be able to get a second chance on levels though.
Not Any Other Annoyances
Other than that, there is nothing else to note. The game does not have a life system. There are not any annoyances other than ads.
My Overall Thoughts About Helix Jump
Overall Helix Jump is very fun and not too annoying. As long you can ignore the ads by paying the price to remove them or playing the game offline.
Will I Keep Playing Helix Jump?
I will not play Helix Jump anymore. While I did enjoy the game in the review, I tend to play puzzle and word games more daily. I like playing games that do not need a lot of attention as I can play them while doing other things.
Would I Recommend People Play Helix Jump?
If you want a simple and fun arcade style game, then this game is great for you. I would recommend Helix Jump to some people.
