Review The Floor Is Lava

Brandon Girod
Solid gameplay mechanics, good nostalgic throwback, unique character design
Ads too frequent
No matter where you’re from, no matter what language you speak, no matter what color your skin is, at some point in your life, the floor has been lava. The Floor is Lava for Android is just a bit difference from the universally popular childhood game but all the spirit of the game is alive and well here.
I honestly don’t think there is anyone out there that never played this imaginary game as a child, but if you haven’t - first, write us a comment and let us know because we’re totally interested in hearing about your wild childhood - then here is a quick breakdown: the floor is lava and you can’t step in it or you die. There’s a little more to it than that, but that’s the gist of it.
Here you’re doing the same thing but you’ll tap the screen to jump from one piece of furniture to the next. The lava comes in phases, so you don’t necessarily have to time your jumps perfectly all the time, but you will once the lava fills the floor. The longer your streak of continuous jumps go, the faster the screen scrolls by.
Being a Ketchapp game, I was totally surprised by how much I liked the core mechanics of the game. After only a few minutes I hit 60 consecutive jumps, which is way better than I’ve ever done on any other mobile arcade game. But that doesn’t mean Ketchapp is saved from my grief. They still have full screen pop-up ads that appear after every few ads.
Overall, The Floor is Lava is definitely an improvement on the typical Ketchapp formula. The gameplay is fun and interesting thanks to nostalgia. But I’m still not a fan of Ketchapp’s advertising practices.f
