Things I can do without
Honestly, this game is the best when it comes to melting away your boredom. Every time that I have nothing to do (which is pretty rare), I find myself coming to this game. The style and purpose of it is absolutely enjoyable. I just wish I’d known how to play it. I remember that when I first got it, I kept landing on the stripes and dying, not knowing what I was doing wrong. Now I’m proud and at level 244. The reason for 4 stars is because there are definitely some things I could do without.
One thing for sure is the ads. I estimated that about every 3 or 4 levels or tries, there’s an ad. I would’ve been fine with it, because it can be somewhat worth it to watch them. But when it’s the same ad over and over and over again, it just ticks me off, and I end up playing another game. So I would like to ask the developers to fix that ad problem. Another thing I can honestly do without is the LAGGING. In practically every level there is SOME type of lag! I get tired of it. For instance, I’m playing the game, enjoying life and all, and all of a sudden my device freezes. I get frustrated and tap on my device over and over, and when I’m back to the game, I “DIED!” And it’s really painful when I have to internet to revive and I was about to beat my high score. Definitely something I could do without.
Honestly, that’s about it, so thank you for reading my review, and be sure to check out this game. If it’s not for you, trust me, we’ll all understand.
Awesome game, but...
by Sage Ashwood
I have had Helix Jump for a while now, and I absolutely love it. I play it basically whenever I can. The game is great, but there are a couple things that aren’t so awesome about it.
First things first: ads. Yeah, I get that ads are a way to make money for the game, but they are used way too much. They pop up just about every time you die or pass a level, which is super annoying. And when you start a level? There’s one that pops up on the side and on the bottom. I just want to play my game, not have to continually x-out of ads and the App Store. Although, in the big picture, ads aren’t that big a deal.
One thing that is definitely a bigger problem is this: after I watch an ad for a second chance, the game drops me a few rings down, usually onto a ‘red zone’ so I die and lose whatever score I had, and I can’t even watch another ad to try again. The app should at least give you a 3 second countdown so you don’t die right off.
A final problem is that I can’t get the final helix. It’s not that big a deal, but I want to know what it is. It says ‘Unlock 5 skins’ to get but I have all the other ones and it still says 0/5. I’ve noticed some other reviews that mention the same thing, so it’s obviously been a problem for a while. Please fix it!
Other than those few issues, Helix Jump is a great game. If they were fixed, I would definitely give this five stars.
My fav game! Unbelievably addictive
I absolutely LOVE this game. I think it’s one of those must haves for literally anyone. It’s extremely addictive and I find myself playing this game over and over again. It just pulls you in. Just that feeling when you fall through so much slots it’s so oh it’s fulfilling really. Clever, very simple to play, and just a plain ole good time. As far as my complaints, it’s little. Some people have complained about how they barely touched the platform and still lost. I don’t find this an issue however because I also thoroughly enjoy the irritating aspect of this game. When I lose it’s just like an ARGHH! Exactly like that. It just irritates me to the point where I want to keep playing. The only issue with the game that I have found is the ads. And I know I’m the millionth guy to say it but it’s darn true. The ads go for I would say five seconds but when you just broke 3000 points and lost because you accidentally swiped a lil too hard. That five seconds feels WAY too long. They get repetitive pretty fast. That being said I still am ENAMORED with this game and a huge fan. I have been playing this for the past few days and believe me IM NOT STOPPING NOW. Highly highly RECOMMEND. Give it a tap if you know what I mean. Thank you for this invention.
I have NO complaints.

I usually don’t write reviews for apps unless they are beyond amazing... and this one definitely fits into that category. I have had this game for about two years now, it’s pretty addicting at times, and other times I just play it when I need something to do. When I look at the app it doesn’t always call my name, but I usually click on it anyway.. and than I can’t stop playing because it reminds me of the joy it brings me. My point is that, VOODOO out did themselves with this game, it’s amazing in so many ways and it will always be a favorite of mine. When I complained about a couple problems that the game had a few days ago they came out with a new update fixing the problems I had just a few days later! I thank VOODOO for giving me a game that brings such a happiness to life at the same time as relieving stress. I definitely recommend this game to anyone who needs or wants stress relief.. or to those who just want a game to play. This is an app worth getting and definitely an app worth reviewing!
Thank you all for taking the time to read this comment, I know it’s not the shortest but it truly comes from my heart. ❤️
Fun passing of time at best
So the concept behind this game is really interesting and very addicting. But besides that this is simply your very basic dime a dozen game that was clearly made with the intent to make money rather than to make an entertaining and fun game. First of all the ads are rampant in this one. That’s nothing new and it’s been far worse in the past, it’s still really annoying. (I would recommend turning off your cellular data for this game in settings and just play with data and all the ads will be gone). The other thing is while this game isn’t necessarily a buggy mess it still has some huge game breaking bugs that at times makes me want to throw my phone across the room. The most annoying one is when you hit a green arrow right before you reach the bottom and it will break the bottom block and you’ll just be suspended in air forever and the only way to fix this is to restart the game which resets your score and level. (I got a score of 390,000 just to have this happen to me. Other bugs include things like teleporting through walls and the platform you’re on breaking but these are barely noticeable and not even a big problem. In conclusion this is a fun passing of time if you can find someway to disable the ads but the game lacks polish and doesn’t share the spirit of game development that other games have and in the end just seems like a large quick grab for money.
Having trouble with ads??
This is a awesome game. Time will pass really quickly. My favorite part is how the levels don’t get any harder it’s the same levels. I really like how easy yet challenging it is to pass a level. I do thinks that it was more fun when the levels were a bit more of a challenge. But there is one thing. On an iPad the game is smooth and great, but when I play it on my phone then it gets really glitchy and it pauses and makes me loose the level. I really love this game but I can’t enjoy it on my phone. I wish that there was a switch in the settings that could make it easier or harder. Because I have seen a lot of people like how easy it is and a lot who think that it is too easy and needs more challenge aspects
If you are having troubles with the ads I have found a hack. The app works without WiFi and data so. If you turn your phone to airplane mode then all the ads will disappear because it can’t load them. I hope this was helpful.
Also after I downloaded the update it keeps on asking me to verify that I am over the age of fifteen and that it has my consent to use personal data to give me certain ads. Well I don’t know what that is and I would please like some help. It is really annoying and is making me want to get rid of the game

This game is so addicting! My friend and I can’t stop playing it. It’s a fantastic game, and the quality is great! It’s fairly well done! I just have a few suggestions or minor issues with the game I’d like to say.
First off, ads! Of course, you have to have ads to earn money, but the fact that you have an ad that’s on the screen before you play (thank god its not there while you play) is just a little, idk, odd? It annoys me a bit. I mean, ads are kind of there all the time with you anyways. There are those ads at the bottom, the ones that come when you die and say continue with a video pictured on it, the ad that comes after the continue section. It’s quite annoying. But then again, it’s not that bad. Some games are worst.
To add on, I’m sure many people have already said this but I can’t unlock that last skin. I have unlocked over 5 skins. I’ve actually unlocked all the skins except for that one. Idk if this is some kind of bug or glitch of whatever, but it’s not exactly great.
Another reason is when you watch an ad to continue, it drops you onto the other color that makes you die. There’s not even a count down!
I'm not here because I think my review is going to improve the game at all. Voodoo never listens to reviews and lashback, I'm just letting future players know what theyre getting into. The game is amazing but practically unplayable. Voodoo has so many games with millions of players, and i don't understand why they need so many adds. They would get significantly more players if people didn't quit playing because they were frustrated with the amount of adds. If they were to cut the adds in half, they would make just as much (possibly more) ad revenue due to more players playing for longer instead of rage quitting. When you die in a match, the game asks you if you want to watch an add to keep your progress. I usually say no as i can (on a good round) finish the round in the time it takes me to get through an add. But they give me an add anyway!! It doesn't matter if I say yes or no, it's just a matter of keeping my progress or not! Voodoo cares nothing for they're players, wants nothing but ad revenue, and doesn't care if they make a game miserable or not. They put no thought into making a game that is actually enjoyable for players and see every game as just another source of money that we inevitably end up giving them
Good review with a little changes that has to be ✅.
by the good side
I really love this game, especially the green boosters. Today I got to one hundread thousand and my brother is calling me a try hard. I just love this game and I really want this game to go on and on for years and keep upgrading to the top. The only problem I have with helix jump is the skips. You only get 1 or 2 ads to get back in the game. and I wish there were about like 5 ads to stay in the game per game. The reason I thing helix jump should have more than one or two ads because, if you are in a match where you are about to beat your high score, you can us ads so you can stay alive. and also, I wish helix jump would have the standings. for people who play all around the world should get rewards for our standing if we move higher up. I really think helix jump should have standings because it can be competitive for others and people will play it more. Other than that I am really addicted to this game and I do not want to stop anytime. I really want this game to last for decades over decades over decades. By a user named Rylee
Developer, plz read
I would’ve given this game 5 stars, but the annoying intro when u log onto the game is so annoying, I gave it 3 stars. The intro shows the Helix ball going through all ur lvls u previously passed and I’m on lvl 222, so that takes forever to finish. Whenever an ad came on, I would’ve just exit the game and log back on, but now that that annoying intro keeps interfering and wasting time, I don’t even bother logging back onto the game. You may think that that intro is preventing Helix jump players from skipping the ads, but in reality ur preventing Helix jump players from playing ur game. Get rid of that intro or make it wayy shorter, and this review will jump to 5 stars. If u want to developer, respond to my message but I don’t need u to. I’ll know u read this if u got rid of the intro/make it wayy shorter
That was my old review, but now I can’t even play the game at all cuz it’s stuck on the loading screen. And what’s more? The developer never responded to my last review, so this shows me that the developer doesn’t read the recent reviews. Now my review has dropped from 3* to 1*. If the developer would just fix the app MAJORLY, then it would jump to 5*, but no. I can already tell that that is not gonna happen and this game is officially too messed up to be fixed. Most players have already been playing for a long time and therefore do not want to start over, so that’s all I have to say.
