Arcade and casual games are living a new golden age thanks to smartphones and tablets, Android and iOS. The point is that after being relegated to game consoles and PCs by simulators, football games, adventure and much more complex action games, they have conquered mobile devices again, the perfect platforms for this style thanks to their portability features.
The geometric platform video game
And Geometry Dash is a good example, a game that is all the rage on its iPhone and iPad versions but also in APK for Android. And we’re not surprised because it compiles the best of the genre: an easily understandable game mode and a wild rhythm that’s complicated enough to get you hooked but not so much that you leave it frustrated. On the other hand, you have to admit that at first you might find it a little hard to get used to it.
A platform video game among the best you can download for iPhone.
The goal of the game is to control a geometric avatar that slides on a horizontal 2D world full of dangers and where all the elements that compose it are regular and irregular polygons of perfect straight lines. In order not to die, you’ll have to touch the screen so that the character jumps when necessary, often taking advantage of some of the elements you’ll find on the way useful to push yourself further and even fly Flappy Bird style.
By installing it on your iPhone or iPad, you will find the following features:
- Platform game to the rhythm of the music.
- Dozens and dozens of levels with a specific soundtrack for the game.
- Build your own levels and share them with the gaming community thanks to the editor.
- Unlock new icons and colors and customize your character.
- Climb into rockets and play with gravity.
- Practice mode to improve your skills.
- Game Center with achievements and rewards.
And, although the first few times you play you may feel a little frustrated, you will feel the need to try once and again to succeed all the levels that, like the classic platforms, they are composed of scenarios full of obstacles and dangers. What’s the secret to clinging to the screen of our smartphone? Surely the increasing difficulty and the need we feel to complete the game.
It’s not without foundation that, even if the game is not free (the full version is not free), there have been more developed versions: we have the alternative to this one, Geometry Dash Lite and then two sequels (World and Meltdown).
The level of difficulty is high, especially in this version 2.10, but by change you have a practical mode where you will improve your skills so that you can unlock new icons and colors on the game. You will even be able to fly a rocket! But try to do it without cheating with hacks! The game is complicated but also fun.
