Review

Splosher is as addictive as the developer says, for those who crave a very difficult challenge at least, and as frustrating as suggested for nearly everyone.

In the way of graphics, Splosher is reasonably polished, with an appealing, but simple color palette, and believable splats details. The game, however, gives the player a serious case of blue balls. Yes, it’s frustrating. Yes, it leaves you striving for personal satisfaction, looking for that release that finishing with a big load (of balls) would give, but when we say blue balls, we mean the literal color of the Splosher balls. Despite the title screen art having several colors at play, only blue balls are presented during the in-game activity.

On top of this the game seems either more sensitive than several bull’s eye spirit level apps, or the balls are simply programmed to roll towards a designated corner when the iPhone device is placed on a flat counter. Even after calibrating the phone’s gyroscope, as well as testing the flat surface with a traditional level tool, the unseen, in-game slant persists. This is not a problem in and of itself, but combined with the fact that the balls move at slightly different, unpredictable speeds, makes this game unbelievably challenging. The game is fun when testing one’s ability to balance a few balls for long periods of time, but when having to corral a herd of blue balls more unruly than a stampede of angry bulls, it enters the realm of impossible for the layman gamer. So while the game may be perfect for those with the time and patience, and maybe hard enough to eventually earn a page in the Guinness World Record book for the player who beats the current high score of 59 balls, the casual gamer may get fed up with the difficulty. Finally, the satisfaction in having balanced a single ball or two for a stretch of time is greatly diminished when, contrary to the app description, only the number of balls on screen at once seem to count towards the score, and time has nothing to do with it.

In conclusion, Splosher is definitely worth a try if for nothing else than to see if you can tackle the herculean challenge of getting fifty plus, hyperactive, fickle balls to balance on the screen without touching either each other or the four walls. The game may turn the casual gamer off, but those seeking a challenge need look no further.
