Simple, Addictive, fun...with one UI suggestion
This has become my favorite time killer, and I’ve downloaded it across almost all of my devices. I’ve even paid for the No Ad upgrade, which I rarely ever do. Since Voodoo is one of the worst with the unskippable 30-40second ads, it’s absolutely worth a few dollars to get rid of them. This game is simple, and addictive, and can be a fast play, or extended out if you are slow and methodical in your acquisition of territory.
Recent updates have eliminated most of the bugginess of earlier versions. One odd thing is that the iPad and iPhone versions are slightly different. On the iPhone, you size up after a kill, but on the iPad, you do not. I wish they both played the same way.
One Full rating star drop: Also, like all other VooDoo games, they do not rotate when changing orientation. For me, a game that will not rotate orientation (especially on the iPad) is an absolutely rating killer. And there are times when I will avoid playing a game I otherwise want to play, because it won’t rotate. For a phone, fine, whatever. For a tablet, it’s a total UI and usability miss. Come on, Voodoo, get it together. You make some of the best simple time killer games out there (even if they are all suspiciously similar), adding the rotate feature is a simple easy feature that makes your games far more widely playable.
Problems and Ideas! Improve with this!
*There are so many ads on this game that I can’t click touch to continue, If you completely got rid of ads this game just might be way better. **Another thing eliminating yourself! You shouldn’t be able to eliminate yourself because you can turn to slow or the wrong way and end up eliminated, Also you shouldn’t be able to die from someone cutting your line. Instead when your line is cut you should be able to get back to your safe zone. This game also should have a feature that alerts you from where you territory is being taken. ***Game modes! My opinion on game modes is I LOVE THEM, and if the game could have some that would be great! Some suggestions 1vs1, Teams (5vs5, 2vs2vs2vs2vs2), Race (Who can get to 10% first)! I’m not entirely sure how many people there are per game, but i think it should be 10 if it is not. ****Feedback on skins! The skin variations are good, but should still have more easier and harder skins to get, and get EXTREMELY creative with the skins. No one once simplistic animals and objects, Maybe do something like a castle or Zeus!
*****I hope you take all these ideas and include a big portion of them in the game, and use other people’s ideas!
Great game but still bugs
This game is addicting and I love it - I've played it since the beginning when there wasn't any skins (now there are some) - but I'm very disappointed that there's still bugs in which my territory glitches and then I have nothing. Even if I try to run back to where my large territory is supposed to be, there's nothing there for me to connect back to, so I promptly die. Even when I had an extra life still and watched the video in the hopes of saving myself, it just started me completely over since there wasn't anything for me to start on. I would be more understanding if it was a really high percentage that crashed it a bit, but this time I was only about 36% before it glitched and got rid of my territory. There's also many times where the game lags severely (and you have difficulty turning etc. while it does so) and there's still times where the game completely crashes and boots me out of the app and I can't get any of my progress back. I'm really disappointed, but like I said, I still love to play this game as it's a fabulous, addicting time-waster. I hope the devs read the community's reviews and fix the bugs. That's the main reason why I give this a 3/5 is because while the bugs make it unenjoyable when you lose your progress, I still enjoy and will continue to play the game, as I'm hopeful that the devs will fix these problems soon and it doesn't glitch every game.
I absolutely love this game! But there are a few things that you need and have got to fix. First, you need to fix the glitch where you lose land. I was doing perfectly fine until that stupid glitch occurred and made me lose almost half of my land, I think that you should start looking into that since it’s happening everywhere. The second item I think you need to fix are the adds. I get that you need those to make money but there are WAY too many adds on this game. You have them right after someone dies, when they want to revive, and a few times I have gotten them when opening the game!! This to me is a huge problem because sometimes I lose right away then have to watch an add then the entire thing happens again!! Maybe after every 3 losses? That would be perfectly fine with me since there are way too many adds at the moment. The third thing I want you to fix is the Consecutive day counting. Because I’ve been playing this game for about 2 weeks yet I just got the burger and that entire time there was no progress showing. You should probably fix this soon. I think you should add more skins too, maybe depending on the time of year and someone has to finish the goal before that time is over to receive the skin? This game is awesome but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t fix the other stuff too.
Fun, but needs some work.
I really enjoy this game and the addictive qualities it has, but I do have some issues with the game that makes me extremely angry when it happens to me. First off, there’s disappearing land. Basically, you’ll be given land and as you’re increasing it, it will randomly just up and disappear. There’s been a few times where I was lucky and still had some sort of land left, so I didn’t have to die. But there has also been a time where all of my land disappeared and dying was inevitable. Something that also happens is that I will be playing and taking up new land that just so happens to cover over someone else’s, and it glitches. I will have that land, but it’s like my color doesn’t completely cover it until I take up more new land, if that makes sense. Another issue I have is that I just tried to play the game and right when I was put into the game, I was instantly killed. I don’t understand how it happened by any means. There’s also moments where I hit other players lines and they just don’t die like they’re supposed to. I’m also not too fond of all of the darn ads. This game isn’t worth $2.99 to get rid of them either. Other than all of these small, yet highly frustrating problems, this game is pretty fun and it helps pass the time when need be.
This would be 5 out of 5 were it not for...

The glitches! The bugs! Seriously, fix them. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been about 75% and then drop right down to 0% but my cube has not been eliminated. You are still alive but you have no territory to connect to so you are guaranteed to die anyways. There’s no explanation or sign or hint as to how or why this happens. I can see maybe just maybe it being caused by another glitch, where you and your opponent have overlapping territory but the game gives it to both of you rather than just one (if you play this long enough you will eventually encounter this, even at smaller %s), and the game somehow gets confused from there and doesn’t know which player is which. Pisses me off, because I know I could get to 100 were it not for this. It happens almost every single time I break 60%. It would probably happen at lower %s as well were I not so quick to erase other players’ gains at my expense. To be killed by another player just makes me want to come back and get my revenge, all in good fun. It keeps me in the game. But to be killed by a glitch, with little indication as to how or why makes me want to throw my device through a window. Please fix this or at least tell me why it is happening!
The game is fun and definitely addictive. However, the glitches are the most frustrating thing ever. I spent the $2.99 on this game to get rid of the ads and guess what? There are still ads when you want to continue the game. SO THIS IS A WASTE OF MONEY! The glitches are so bad and make me want to throw my phone against a wall. After you’ve covered a good portion of the area, it will turn completely white for no reason leaving you stranded as you cannot get back to your pattern. Sometimes, it goes white and you die as if an invisible player just killed you. If you’re especially lucky, you’ll see a light show as the colors begin to glitch and your whole section comes back and disappears like flashing lights at a club. And then... you guessed it, you’ll randomly die. The percentage gets stuck at a number and no matter how much you’ve covered it’ll still say 0.51% even though your area is larger than the 0.66% circle you start with. This game could really become more popular and be the next “words with friends” or “angry birds” and could make a lot of money BUT it seems “they” would rather make chump change off of a subpar app with a great idea. The game is so fun and the idea is so addicting but the bugs and glitches and ads even after you pay, are enough to delete the app and tell everyone I know not to even bother. FIX THE BUGS! I guarantee that more people will play. FIX THE GLITCHES! FIX THE GLITCHES! FIX THE GLITCHES!
Love this game, but a few suggestions
This game is great! I love how smooth it is compared to the first one and how much easier it is to turn and move! The only things I don’t love is how laggy/glitchy it is and how many ads there are. I don’t know if it’s just my WiFi or if I just have to reload but I’ve restarted my device multiple times and it will still lag. My device will be on full WiFi and will still lag. This causes my character to move a wrong way and die, so please take into consideration to fix that! Also I understand that it’s a free game so it comes with ads but there doesn’t need to be one after every single match! I do understand that this game needs money so it is trying to get the players to purchase ad removal and all but it doesn’t need an ad after every match. Perhaps there could be an ad every two matches instead? Please also take that into consideration. As I said before I do love this game and those are really my only problems. I love all of the different skins and ways to unlock them too! Love the smoothness and different shapes I can make but please do consider the suggestions I have listed!
Thank you for your
consideration and time!
Way to many glitches
My territory disappears even though there is no one is around to claim it. The Controls hey jumpy. At some points in the game it is smooth and nice to play. But other times I can play at all because it freezes so bad that it won’t start up again or the glitches make it so it doesn’t respond to where I want the thing to go to. It almost always ends with me bing killed. (Ex: if I pull it to the right and try to make it go to home base it will sometimes glitch out not go right and get hit by a on coming color.). Not cool.
Other then that I would love to be able to play the game because it is fun. Fix the issues and I can give a better review. Also some colors tend to be faster then other already.
So maybe you can add that as a bonus reward. So like you hav ego hit a certain goal to unlock a skin but maybe as well as having a knee skin give certain skins little bonus rewards like one could be a tiny bit faster. One could be a tiny bit bigger. And such. Also maybe limit how many players can be in a arena. And maybe add a little overview circle so you know where you are in the circle and see how much you have covered also see other players.
But first fix the bugs. Then add the other fun details.
Fun game although you’re playing robots
I really enjoy this game, I’ve spent hours playing and I still enjoy it. I like the skin situation they added, I just wish it kept up with your progress towards reaching new goals so you can have a mission in mind while playing. As others mentioned there are bugs that cause your area to randomly disappear, and when you pay for “no ads” you still have to watch ads for the extra life.
My biggest complaint that I recently discovered is that you’re not playing with other real players. The other players are clearly robots because they NEVER utilize the extra life, when you kill someone they stay dead. If these were real people they would be using the extra life too. Another thing is that the robots never get past like 10%. I regularly reach 40%+ and I’ve never seen another player do so. Plus there’s been times where I lay my phone down while watching the ad I paid not to see and when I get back in the game none of my territory has been taken.
So to make the game better: allow us to play with real players, remove the ads we paid to have removed, fix the disappearing land bug, and keep up with goal progress.
