Love it but I have some recommendations
Okay so first of all I’m super addicted to this game and it’s super fun and I love it and I haven’t gotten tired of it yet BUT I do feel like I have some good ideas that could help the game be even better. So my first idea is one that I’ve already seen people suggest before and it’s that there should be more than place to play at, maybe do a farm or another planet or different cities/towns from different countries, maybe even do one that’s an amusement park. There’s tons of different maps you could make. My other suggestion is that there be a ‘free play’ added where there’s no time limit and you play by yourself until you’ve eaten the whole town because personally I really just like the satisfaction of eating everything and I think it would be fun to have that as an option. I also think that another good idea would be adding power ups during the game while you’re playing; I’d say you could either do the power ups randomly during the game or you could have them as an option to purchase with artificial money before you play a game. The ‘money’ to purchase these power ups could come from the ‘kills’ you make in each game. And as you ‘kill’ more they add up and turn into credits after each game to where eventually you could use them to buy different power ups. Okay that’s all I have for now and I really hope to see some of these come into play!
So Much Fun, But So Little Time...
The concept of this game is really amazing. It’s a fun mechanic and you really have to eat used to the physics, it’s challenging to eat things when small but just as challenging when you ran a group of buildings and they all get stuck trying to go down. I notice some choppy lag when you’re getting bigger, hopefully some polishing can be done to make that a little better. My major complaint is the game modes, and I can’t understand how the devs went wrong on this. You have a 2 minute top score mode against a bunch of computer players which is somewhat interesting but tires quickly. Next, you have a battle mode with no time limit, but the bots will zero in on you when they know they’re bigger than you so it feels unfair and rushed. Outside of local multiplayer, you have a solo mode that makes the game, no bots to deal with and no goals besides eating everything... but again you have only two minutes. It can take a quarter of that time just to find things to get bigger when you’re small, and by the time you’re just big enough to have fun you’re out of time. Why do this??? This type of mode needs more time, but honestly a solo mode with no time limit at all would be an absolute game-changer, pitting all these restrictions on the fun hollows the experience and leaves you frustrated and wanting more. I would love to increase the rating if the devs would allow us to enjoy the game the way we should be able to, it just doesn’t make sense not to.
Developers read this! Great game in the making!
By Captain Augy
I’m fairly addicted to this game right now and, although it is fun to eat people and cities, I feel like it needs just a little more. Developers please read this food for thought. The ranking system is cool. Is nice knowing how high you’re progressing but there isn’t a point without bragging rights. The scoreboard at the end should show your rank. Your rank should be bigger and more noticeable in game as well. There should be a high score leaderboard both by rank and score. Hell could even throw in most amount of players eaten. More game types I’m sure are already in the making but consider things like map changes. Not to spill the beans for everyone but you always spawn on the same map. Just looking at it from one of the four different angles. Eat both parks, competition, police and court building, apartments and then game you win. Honestly I know I’ve won once I ate a park to myself. Consistently get an average score of around 1600k. While others are stuck at 100 or 200. Simply because once both parks are eaten there isn’t enough to go around. Which makes sense I know. But people like me memorize the map in any of the 4 angles. Making it slowly more and more boring and simple. I’d throw out new stuff soon to keep peoples attention.
Really Good but Missing Something
This game is super addicting and fun. Eating the city and everything in it is super satisfying. However, I think the app is missing something. I read some of the other reviews and many of them suggested adding more maps. I like this idea because you could eat things in different places. But along with some terrain changes I think I'd be cool if the year wasn't always the same. Eating things during a famous war would be cool. And eating in a futuristic era would be too. Also, I think there should be a larger reward when you win a round. It's hard to win this game sometimes and I'd appreciate being rewarded when I do. I like the idea of getting a certain amount of stars based in how you place, but we can only use them to make your rank higher. I think it would be more fun if we could use the stars for more things. Like unlocking new maps or getting more colors. If these small changes are added to the game then there would be a reason to try and win. If I have a goal to reach then I will probably play the game more often. Don't get me wrong this app is really good. It's a quick thing to do when I'm bored and it helps relieve some of my stress. I will continue playing this app no matter what, but I would play it even more if these changes were made.
Nice Gameplay, but Needs Fixing.
I do like the gameplay, the ads are okay but sometimes it can get annoying if you die in the first 30 seconds or so and each time an ad comes on. Also, over 240 megabytes for this small game? It’s expanding and all, but for only 3 game modes, 1 map, okay graphics, and that goes over even 100 megabytes? Also, THE BATTERY. I played this game for about, eh, 30 minutes or so, testing the new update. Was at around 90, after the testing, around 30-40. TOO MUCH. How can such a small game that’s just kinda less than mediocre be over 200 megabytes and eats battery like FaceTime does? I’m sorry, but this is just too much. The AI as well, they get too good very early, and mostly it’s based on luck. Also, all of your games want 3 bucks for no ads. Seriously??? Yeah, we know that you need to make a profit, but that’s more than really good games that cost 1 or 2 dollars for, and you already get a ton of money from the loads of ads on your other games. Voodoo, you’re getting very sketchy, even though your games are getting top ranks, you need to work on a LOT of this stuff. Honestly, it’s not that much of a pain with the storage, but the battery. If you change that for the better that would be AMAZING. And maybe have difficulties for AI so newcomers are more welcome to starting the game easy and slow. I hope you consider this review, and change this game for the better.
Honestly LOVE this game
By Everything is taken.
This is one of the BEST games I’ve ever played in my life! It’s so fun to play. It’s legit the only game I play now. It’s so fun. Yes, there’s a lot of ads but I don’t mind. The ads aren’t really a problem because the game in general is great. You guys are doing great. I have a few recommendation though. Instead of playing against bots, it should be real people. Also, instead of having one map to play on, there should be many to choose from. Like other planets or farms. Heck, maybe even a forest. Also, with the points we get you should make a store available so people can buy cool skins. And the time limit for me 3 minutes. And there should be also other options like what type of modes. Like a mode where there’s no time limit. And he maps should be bigger and people can go in the water and there’s boats and sea animals and reefs. So the game would be even more better. I honestly have nothing negative to say about this game. I was automatically addicted the first time I played the game. I haven’t gone tired of it yet, and I hope I will never will. You guys are brilliant. Love it! Keep up the work! Cheers! 👍👍👍
I actually really love this game. It is very satisfying watching you steadily clear the map, especially in solo mode. Only a couple complaints. Number one, in any one of the game modes, the game starts to lag the bigger you get and it’s a little frustrating. And number two, ive been playing solo mode a lot, and I have scored higher than my initial “best” score several, several times. However, when I go back to the main screen, before you hit play, it still shows my “best score” as what ever it was the very first time I played in solo. For example, my initial best score was like 56%, and since then I have played many rounds where I’ve scored in the 60, 70, and 80 percentile, but every time I go back to the main screen, it still shows my initial best of 56%. I just find this strange and a bit frustrating, because I never know now what my actual best score is. The only suggestions I have as far as expanding the game is to maybe add a couple of different maps, so it’s not the same map every time, and to add more time if not just make it unlimited time when you’re playing solo. Overall, I really like this game a lot, and I hope this critique was helpful.
READ READ VOODOOS BIGGEST FAN RIGHT HERE
By #1 fan (Katlyn
Okay so listen I have many ideas also I’ve written a review on almost every voodoo game I also have most of your games. 1) can players choose if they want a time mode or no time limit please? I know that a lot of people have been suggesting that like two modes one with a time limit of maybe two minutes and one where the game end when you’ve been eaten by another hole. Like it? 2) can there be new modes like areas ya know for example u guys have the town one. Can there be one like a airport or a store? Places with things you can eat. 3) challenges! Like levels where you can be like “MAN THIS LEVEL IS SO HARD I WANNA WIN IT SO BADLY! IMMA PLAY THIS GAME ALL DAY LONG!” yup i know I’m brilliant :D 4) can their be new skins for the holes.? ThANkYoU for your time! Again I have almost every game of voodoo (Im a girl btw)
Edit: Y’all didn’t respond -_- after all we’ve been thru. And y’all still don’t put not EVEN ONE of my BRILLIANT suggestions which MANY MANY MANY ppl just like me have wanted ever since the game first came out. WELLLLL I STILL AM ADDICTED TO UR GAMES SO ILL KEEP CRYING IN THAT DARK CORNER OF MEH ROOM ^_^
Really great, but...
By The Machine-o
This is truly a really well made game. Super fun and creative. The physics are impressive with how the environment reacts to your ever-growing hole.
Like others have mentioned, however, there seems to be plenty of room for improvement. The recent update is great with the addition of two more game modes. However, they are each still limited. I think what many players long for is a truly “unlimited” feast mode where the game doesn’t end after two minutes, nor does it end when other holes are defeated. Perhaps a mode in which the object is to completely eat 100% of the map, and beat your own best time rather than having to stop at 2 minutes? What about a mode with a respawning map in random patterns? Also, I maxed out my rank a long time ago, but to what avail? It seems to do nothing. Could increasing rank allow for the “purchase” of new maps? Types/shapes of holes?
I realize all these ideas require extensive coding and testing; much more than I would be capable of. Just some suggestions to improve an already great game.
This is another great “.io” game that is very addictive. Once you figure out where everything is and how the point system works, it’s a lot more fun but it’s still challenging bc it’s all about who can consume the most (items of value) in 2 minutes. I ran into my first issue after playing hundreds of times & never having any issues. I’m not sure if it was a glitch or if we are actually playing real people but this is what happened. I have won numerous games, I actually usually do win...but we all lose as well and that’s fine too. But usually even when I’m tiny I can get away from a bigger “hole” chasing me. Today one called “Evil Smith” somehow had twice the speed of everyone else. Even if I could figure out how to do that, I wouldn’t bc I don’t need an advantage to win. It discourages people too, when they don’t have much of a chance and they are just learning the game.
I would recommend adding more time and possibly a bigger city as well. Overall this is one of my favorite games! I love all of the “.io” games. Keep up the great work guys! 😊
Has great potential!
This game is more than your average game but lacks key components that could improve the game immensely. First off ranking up isn’t enough of a reward for playing and could eventually be the reason I stop playing. I recommend having a shop to spend accumulated points on customizable content (even if this means in app purchases as a result) Second, it seems as if the first person (or hole) to consume the most objects in the very beginning pretty much has the game in the bag from the start since all you have to do is eat the other smaller holes to gain a massive advantage. If your not lucky enough to spawn closest to a group of cones or posts near you consider yourself done for. I would suggest having additional various sized objects that can be more advantageous to smaller holes (since it’s a bit hard to come across posts/cones in clusters right off the bat. And cars can be a little too big to consume although sometimes the points can make it worth the struggle of tackling.) Lastly, the timer is a bit short but that’s just my opinion. Hope the feedback contributes to more updates soon!
So I do love this game so much it’s really addictive to me.
However I don’t like the lag or how my game pauses for 1 second because of the lag that keeps on happening and I get behind and end up with a bad score usually. I do sometimes get in first second third forth
But it gets annoying.. I think you guys should add like three mins instead of two and the area can be bigger.
Please please PEASE add game modes mabye some minigames and different maps for the game.I think it would be cool if each round we get coins like seventh would be the lowest amount of coins and it gets higher each place you get in so we can get stuff in a shop we could buy trails and other cool stuff.
Also MC 300 said they saw a inappropriate name I look at the name and I think he is absolutely right about how inappropriate that is I think you should fix that and not let people have bad names and if they hack to have a name like that BAN THEM IMMEDIATELY. For the sake of the kids that play this actually everyone it dos doesn’t matter what age that name was really inappropriate. MC is a kid just like me yep I’m honest I’m a kid to and with these kinds of games I usually see inappropriate names I don’t wan’t to witnes.
I absolutely love this game!! I’ve played it so many times, I’ve lost count! My only suggestion is to add more modes ( such as larger areas with a bumped up time limit, maybe a fight mode with a shortened time limit but faster holes, a practice mode w/ no time limit etc. ) and different areas for the players to play in. Like I’ve said I’ve played this games TONS already. But that means I know the map and I know where to go to eat the most and get larger. I’d like a little variety between gameplay, which is really the only reason I gave four stars instead of five.
Also p.s I understand that you need the ads to help create revenue so that you can continue adding on to your games and make improvements and then you gotta pay the people who work for you but maybe try so that the ads don’t occur every single time after a game..? Maybe every other but with a longer ad? <—- I’m completely uneducated in how ad revenue works for you guys so by no means am I holding this against the game because there’s a way to buy out of the ads I’m just saying maybe not every single time after gameplay yknow?
This game is amazing and sooo addicting! The concept of the game is very unique and I think it’s much better than the other io games. It can’t get too overpowering and people don’t team up. Even though this game is super amazing there are some hints that you could do to make it a much better game. I think there should be different maps you could play on. I also think you could make it so there are different game modes for example, an all rank game where anyone can play or a game with only your rank such as only bronze stars can play together, only silver stars can play together, etc. There could also be a pro game where there are a lot less smaller objects to eat so it’s harder to get larger. Maybe there could be a free play mode where there is no time limit and there is either an infinite map or a much larger boarder where the objects will regenerate after a little while. Overall this game is amazing and there are some parts to improve. I would appreciate if you would take this into consideration.
Great concept, poor execution
I do love the concept of the app, it’s satisfying to use the hole to swallow objects but there are many many things that must be improved. I uninstalled this app today because to put it plainly, it does not work for me. I have used it on multiple devices. I’m not sure if it’s the ads but the frame rate is horrid. I’m unable to move the hole properly because it is stopping, crashing, and glitching. From a gameplay standpoint, there are not enough tiny objects like humans and the little plants for the beginning not to mention by the time I start the time is already up because of how glitchy it is. Point blank there needs to be some sort of customization where you can either have no opponents, few opponents, a different location, and more time! The multiplayer aspect ruined it for me entirely, if there was a separate mode where I could play on my own in a sandbox or no time limit mode that would be ideal. Nothing aside from the concept is appealing and I can’t get over how choppy the gameplay is all together so for that reason I’ve had to uninstall (reluctantly) because I do love the concept! Please fix
Parks are too strong- game is won in the first 30 seconds
By Micro death
Ignore all the people going on about the time limit. It’s balanced for the game.
Game is super fun but the winner is basically decided by who gets to one of the parks first. If you absorb a whole park, not to mention getting to the 2nd one too, you have won. There needs to either be more parks and an increase to the total available points (allowing for multiple giant holes to exist/fight) or the parks need to be seriously nerfed. Because of the sheer size upgrade given from eating a whole park you are already put in the lead and then you can swallow whole groups of cars and very quickly groups of small buildings. Unless another hole is doing the same thing as you on the other side of the map nobody can catch up. You are pretty much instantly guaranteed at least half of the total points collected. 80% if you find both parks untouched.
I love the game guys and I think if you change this one thing it will really help the arena feel you are trying to cultivate.
This game is a good time killer. The ads that people complain about really aren’t all that bad, they occur after each 2 minute game, but most I have seen can be skipped within 10 seconds or so. Visually, graphics are enjoyable, and gameplay is smooth. Rare frame rate issues happen when too many players are too close and consuming high volumes of objects, but even that has been rare for me. Biggest downside is there is only one game mode, with one time limit. After about 5 or so games you can get bored unless you are setting personal score goals for yourself, since you are only playing against AI. Also, the ranking system is absolutely worthless currently because you get no noticeable achievement for ranking up that I have seen. Possibly a feature added in the future. Overall, good time killer for about 20 mins, or a trip to a bathroom; ads are annoying, but can be circumvented by turning airplane mode on, and for being version 1.1, is a pretty solid foundation to build on. Looking foreword to future updates, which could change my 3 star ranting.
Great game, poor rating
I hate to have to give this game a 2 star rating considering how much fun I think it is. There are however lots of issues that I’ve encountered that make it not worth playing.
To start, the game is super laggy. This makes it really difficult to play against opponents and win. It has even completely frozen on me in the middle of a solo run. Another thing is that my screen gets really hot after just 5 minutes of playing. On top of this, it drains my battery! This problem definitely needs to be resolved. Some other issues I’ve noticed is that it won’t update my best score on the solo mode. It is stuck on the very first score I got. When I finish a solo game, the percentage from the bar does not match what pops up once the game is over. Also, the ads are way too long, suggestive and vulgar for a child to see when they play. One of the ads was for app about “sexy text stories”. This is not something I want my child seeing when they play what should be an innocent game such as this. While I feel this game has a lot of potential, there is much that needs to be fixed to make it worth playing.
Great game, needs work
(Has been Edited)
-More colors or maybe a color wheel to choose which color you want
-A competitive/ ranking system? Idk
-More Ranks! (Im maxed out already)
-Since it’s pretty much impossible to find a real person, instead make it so that you always play against real people and there is an AI mode where you don’t earn stars
I also like the addition of solo play. It really allows you to explore the different spawns of... edibles? Like parks, and it also gave me an idea
-A mode where you play against people (ai or humans) and you can’t eat each other but whoever eats the biggest percentage of the map wins, you could call it a Time Eat Challenge? Idk, I just think that would be fun!
And also sometimes buildings get stuck around the hole, so you have to move around in circles or else you cant eat until it falls in, so fix that and make it so that you have to be a certain size to eat something, and when you eat it it goes in SMOOTHLY, not you can ALMOST eat something. Also the buildings fall over and then you cant eat them, which is really bad for solo play.
Other than that this game is amazing right now and its really fun, keep up the great work guys!
I like the new modes, and it was a good idea to add it to where you can earn more stars based on how well you do. The only suggestions i have left are at the top. Good job Voodoo 👌
Some things to add
I absolutely love the game i just think a change of scenery and levels would be a great addition to the game. Like for ex. Airports, Towns, farms, etc. adding the little characters or giving the buildings more designs like dog shelters, malls, name brand stores, just more day to day things to make the settings more unique because by now everyone knows where everything is and only goes for the parks. Maybe put in an option in the settings to change things around a bit like day or night/weather. There should also be an option of a harder level where maybe there’d be a winter setting and it’ll snow for 10 seconds making you slow, rainy weather that makes you go super fast, just some ideas to make the game more challenging & unique, summer makes it so hot you can’t see other characters from the heat waves, spring flowers start covering the buildings. Thank you to whoever took the time to read this.
It Has It’s Likes And Dislikes 😁/😤
So to start out I am going to say that I don’t think it so fair That some people get bigger or fatter or rounder so much faster than the other circles. Another thing is that if your small the only things that are there to eat is to eat are manholes, people, light poles, signs and other circles if they are smaller than you. One thing that I do like about this game is if you do you get eaten, there is a Nother chance for you to come alive again within five seconds. After those five seconds you are off again to eat other circles manholes and etc. another thing that I do like about this app is that if you do get big enough you can also eat buildings, railings, trees, cars, and other circles if they are smaller. What I’m really trying to say is that some people just don’t get it big in the short amount of time. And there’s not all so many stuff to eat. I think there should be maybe 30 seconds more of the time and more things to eat when your small or big.I believe that this needs to change.👍🏻😁👾
I love this game. So you might be wondering, why three stars? Well for one, I am 99% sure all of the other players are bots. They have extremely generic usernames, most of which are based on animals and colors. “Pink Cobra,” “Blue Mustang.” Not very slick. Not to mention most of them wander around aimlessly and don’t seem to try to avoid me when I try to swallow them up. So that seems a bit deceiving. This game would make for amazing real online PVP gameplay. My other problem with this game is that there is no incentive for winning. Sure it’s extremely satisfying, but how about throwing in some upgrades or customization? How about your player rank allows you to play with more experienced players or to go to new levels? Also, there is no sound effects or music which feels like a missed opportunity. This game could be #1 in the App Store with just a few of these simple elements, all of which have precedent in other games. I’ll be waiting eagerly for the improvements and in the meantime playing the same old half baked game against bots with silly names.
Top 3 Casual Games of All Time
This game is essentially perfect, now that the most recent update added solo and battle modes, to the previous online and local Bluetooth multiplayer modes. Along with Tiny Wings and Bejeweled, it’s probably top 3 casual iOS games EVER, for me personally.
If you love Katamari Damacy, it’s like a little 2 min slice of that game. (If you don’t know Katamari Damacy, find it and play it, it’s enormously fun.)
Like I said, nearly perfect. Fully deserves 5 stars. If I could request anything in future updates it would be some sort of achievement set that’s fun for people who have maxed out on speed running 100% of the island. Achievements for getting specific things, or in specific orders, or maybe finding one particular person running around, or NOT eating something specific... that, or another, bigger island that you can access once you have your golden wings badge ;) You know, something simple like that.
FIX THE IMPORTANT THINGS FIRST
Ok first of all, we did not care about how fast we started out and ended because that was not the biggest problem. The biggest flaw in this game is that you have two minutes to get as big as you can but that really puts a limit on how big you can actually get. When I win the game I’m usually the same size as usual and it’s like a maximum. So please focus on the important things and make the time limit longer or make other game options where you can just play until you eat everything. Also this is not a live game, we are just playing with bots which is kind of lame. I’ve been waiting for you guys to update your app and make these much needed changes but all you did was fix the speed and the drag when you hit the edge. Two things that we did not really care about. So I’m very disappointed in this update and I just don’t understand how you guys did not get the memo that each match needs a longer time limit because that is what every review is saying they want.
