Review Ball Jump

Brandon Girod
Solid controls, good level dynamics
Simple gameplay, grindy
Somehow, Ketchapp has managed to do it again. Ball Jump for Android is another endless game that does pretty much everything you want out of a mobile game. This time around gameplay is based more on keeping up a really crazy momentum to get as far into the game as you can.
So this game is all about bouncing a ball on platforms that are consistently changing and moving. All you have to do is tap on your screen and the ball will jump. The key here is that you'll want to take how the platforms are moving beneath you into consideration if you're going to survive. The best piece of advice I can give is to wait until the very last moment to jump because you never truly know where a piece will settle. That said, I did run into a few instances where there simply wasn't a platform to jump on because it had already moved on me. This ended up being pretty frustrating.
The rewards are pretty cool and are purely cosmetic. I unlocked a guy that looked almost like some kind of 8-bit Mario. The downside is that unlocking these rewards is pretty grindy. You need 100 coins to unlock them, though you can watch a video for extra coins. The problem is that I didn't really find the gameplay compelling enough to want to keep playing.
Everything here in Ball Jump is really solid. The controls respond well, the graphics are great, and there are some pretty cool looking rewards. The problem is that while the gameplay feels fun and involved when you first jump in, the novelty of it all really begins to wear thing rather quickly. On top of that, unlocking new rewards feels more like a grind than it should.
