Balls RaceOfficial Waldo Score 6.5/10

6.5out of 10
Official Waldo Review

Balls Race is actually a really fun game and my new favorite by publisher Ketchapp. The concept is that you race other balls to the finish line while avoiding crazy objects in your path. I believe this game is mostly an "illusion" of actually racing since you can't interact with the other balls on the track and it's more about reaching the finish line without crashing. The added pressure of other racers does make the game a lot more exciting and thrilling when you actually do win, but it's more of an illusion than anything. Overall this is my new favorite game for those quick pick me up's while waiting for my turn in line.

Rating Breakdown

This game was given a score of 6.5/10 which is good. Anything above a 5.0 is considered a great game. Below is a breakdown of the elements that were factored into the rating for this game. Even though Waldo's reviews are based on personal opinion, each game's rating follows a strict confidential rubric system for fairness.

User Interface Design (UI)
Game displays some but not all of the following: clean layout design, smooth transitions, animation / motion, good use of a color palette, orginality.
User Experience Design (UX)
Game factored some but not all of the following: simple to use navigation, engaging layout, priority-based design, clear use of icons, internationality / language barriers.
Game Design
Level design is pretty basic, like most of their other games. Simple but clean.
Learning Curve
Game required no tutorials or instructions to play.
Difficulty Progression
Really hard to complete a whole race without watching an ad to continue. Something really cheap usually happens before you reach the finish line. I find this game to be more based on luck than skill.
Playtime Longevity
It is a game that you will want to play for a week, but nothing more.
Sound Design
Music and/or sound effects fit the theme, but did not add value to the game.
Fun
This game is actually really fun. There is some strategy to this game, but for the most part I find myself being blind sighted by a random object before reaching the finish line. They allow you to continue when this happens, but it's more of a monetization strategy than anything.
Concept Originality
Uses a concept that has been seen or used before but adds a very unique twist to that concept that makes it original on its own.
Post Production
Post production contains a well written description, screenshots, video and icon design.
