Review Chop Block

Kevin Vadala
Funny sounds, cute character
Horrible controls, bland level design
Chop Block for Android is a frantic running game in which you play a small little orange pixelated character that spends his time jumping through black levels that are filled with white and rotating dangerous gears.
Something about Chop Block always feels rushed. It has to do with the control scheme for the game, which doesn't quite feel right for the game right now. You control your character by using the virtual joystick on the left side of the screen. But this joystick that allows you to control the momentum of your character always feels off. It’s like you are controlling your characters speed, momentum, and jump height all at once. This is all done within a constantly moving level. Sometimes it feels like you just can't stop moving. It’s also quite difficult because the gears are close together.
While dying is sure to be a frequent event in this game, it is by no means an enjoyable experience. This dying, coupled with the game's difficulty and wonky controls feels very frustrating when matched with an aggressive ad system that plays every single time you die. Like many other games that are free to play, these ads are placed in strategic positions let's try to get you to click on the ad instead of clicking play again.
The only good thing about dying, is that when you die your orange little pixelated character explodes into a hundred different pixels with a funny sound. It sounds something like wood going through a wood cutting machine.
Chop Block is a fair entry into the running genre, but mostly I feel it is unnecessarily difficult. Unless you are a fan of the style, which isn't bad, I would rather play a game like Super Jetpack Joy Ride that has more polish, a fairer difficulty level, and fun power ups.
