Not Played By Me Anymore
By everyday honest 21
I used to play this game all the time- but there’s a few problems- 💔🖤. First is first. TO MANY ADDS! I have the same problem as a few people who wrote a review! Whenever I die-which is a lot now- I tap to play again. Many times the purple revive button pops up, but I tapped around the revive button, for my best is only 414, and it showed an add! I DIDN’T PRESS THE REVIVE BUTTON! Also, it is very glitchy, for it was on my old phone but I got a new one and it’s still laggy! WHAT IS HAPPENING?! The levels are, to me, even easier than the actual normal playing mode! I think there should be a practice mode, to, so whoever wrote that review I agree with you. I apologize for this getting so long, for there is a lot of problems. Also, this game is a dirty liar. It says 4.5 out of 5. Oh really, game developers? What about the people who gave a 2 star and even a 1 star? 3 stars is something that the Dev. Shouldn’t be proud of. This game is unplayable, and I hate the game, also I don’t play anymore. I’m sorry I am giving such a bad review but it is necessary. I was about to give 2 stars but then I remembered how much I USED to like this game. I don’t anymore. If you haven’t bought this game yet, then I recommend not buying it. If you got to the end of this, thanks for reading! Game dev. Please stop making me suffer this lag and terrible lying. Thanks for reading. Good job on making... I guess! 😊 👋
Increased difficulty. Impossible unlocks.
By Zero Everless
Dune used to be one of my favorite time sinks, it really was "the smoothest game" but now that they have ratcheted the difficulty up (by making the required angle of landing so shallow) it has become incredibly jarring and frustrating. Not to mention that if you hit a certain area on the downslope, your ball bounces and hits the upslope at too steep of an angle, causing an automatic failure.
The game has you unlock more backgrounds, balls, and hill textures by completing certain objectives in-game. For instance: revive 20 times for a particular new ball. The problem is, they made it ridiculously difficult, if not impossible.
When I started working on this one in particular, it was simply annoying; you have to watch an advertisement to revive (this is understandable), but when you 'die' a second time, you have to watch ANOTHER ad. If you skip that ad or close app, the revival you just used doesn't count towards the unlock. That was irritating, to say the least, but I muscled through double advertisements. This is irritating to me because I know the Dev is getting paid twice for what should be a single ad revival, as it is in just about every other ad-supported game. Now I'm at 17 of 20 revives, and the game will not let me revive at all anymore. The purple 'Revive' button is entirely gone. If I can't unlock this ball, I'm automatically precluded from unlocking others in the future (EG: use X number of different balls).
Honest Dune Review
I used to absolutely be obsessed with this game, but ever since they made it a competition, I really don’t enjoy it. It might’ve been four stars if they didn’t make it harder. Why did they make it harder? Probably so you’d keep playing. But personally, I liked it when it wasn’t impossible. But that’s just me. If you like the new version of the impossible competition, congrats to you. Not trying to convince anyone not to play because it’s actually quite enjoyable but the competition aspect has made it more stressful instead of stress-relieving, which is what it used to be to me.
On the plus side, it doesn’t have many adds, which is quite unusual for a free game, and you get new balls, ground, and sky so you have variety.
This review could’ve been four stars if they didn't make it impossible to play, but because it is, I chose three stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
I hope this review was helpful to anyone debating downloading this game. Once again, this is just an honest Dune review from my perspective. I would recommend downloading the game just to try it out. Some people may enjoy the competition.
Thanks for reading. Hope it helped!🤓🤪
Liked it but one problem
This game has been one of my top favorites for a long time. I think t is so fun and I am addicted. It is kind of easy but has some really difficult points to the game as well. This has got to be one of my all time favorite games. I have one problem though. This game has so many ads!! First off, I know that free games like these are supposed to have ads, but this is just bad. I have other free games on my phone that are just as fun but don’t have nearly as many ads. This game has a revive feature to so if you die and are about reach your high score or something and want to be revived you can use this. The price to use it is just to watch an ad. One time I used the revive feature because I was about to pass my high score and was very excited but the ad didn’t let me X out of it. So I had to restart my game and I had watched that video for nothing. This has happened to me several times. And it is not because of the phone because my phone is brand new. Anyway, this game is nice and I think it is worth it but the ads are just very very annoying.
Small fixes much needed
I play this game almost every day, sometimes several times a day. I enjoy it so much that I paid for the ad-free version (also because the ads were extremely annoying). And unfortunately there are some minor problems that would make this game much better if fixed. One of them is when I choose to watch an ad in order to continue my streak in the main game, and after the ad is over, I lose my streak and have to start back at zero. It just happened to me where I was at almost 100 points when I crashed, so I chose to watch the ad to continue from where I left off, and when I got back to the game after the ad it started me back at the beginning with a score of “0”. This is one of very few games I’ve actually paid for. And things like that make me regret it.
Also, if the developers could add a “retry challenge” button at the end of a run that would take you directly to the beginning of the challenge instead of the challenges menu, that would be awesome. Would just make binge-playing a bit easier. ;)
Good game but ONE PROBLEM ☝️ 😠 :/
By DA REVEWER GURL :3
I downloaded the app because I saw it in an add. But then when i play, there, as u probably know if u play, is a purple button that pops up when u fail. You press and an ad pops up, and in return an extra life. But there’s a problem with this. Sometimes when I didn’t really get that far and didn’t care to save that progress, I didn’t press the button. But sometimes and ONLY SOMETIMES, an ad will pop up ANYWAY! Like, why even give us the option to press a “watch an add for another life!!” Button if you only do that when u press the button!? Even though this problem really bugs me, I like the game. 😒🙃
Edit: ok. It says in my last review (a month ago) all the stuff about the button with the extra life and stuff. I continued to play for a while and I get an update. BUTTTT...remember how I said that it only happened sometimes? Yes well when I got the update this problem happens ALL the time now!! OMG WHY! Over all this game is good but U PPL GOT TO CUT DOWN ON THE ADS! This is a really fun game and i don’t want to have to delete it because of all the ads. Pls fix this!!
Ps. Forgive meh for this being so long 👍
Please Read This And Take In...
This game is one of my favorite games of all time. I have made it past 1000 of a score, and have almost every ball unlocked. I got it back in 2017. But there is one problem. The game is easy. Not so easy it is boring the first round you play, but easy as in...slow. What I mean by that is you can only get 8 points max every drop. It took me about 15-20 minutes at LEAST, to get my high score. Some examples to fix this is add another line that gives you 16 points. This will make gameplay so much more fun and fast as myself I can get so high the ground doesn’t even load in. Another thing would be to add more achievements to unlock balls. One thing that motivated me to get my score was to get the skins, and trust me, the ones you have are pretty amazing. Some examples, get above 100 score or get above 500 score, or even higher. Landscapes and grounds will be pretty great too. Possibly power ups like a speed boost, or an extra 10 points, or a shield of some sort? These are just ideas that I think will make the game less... plain. Thank you!
This game was really cool but like, the ads kill me. First of all, if the ad isn't loaded, it probably shouldn't be playing and forcing me to wait longer than it would to just close out of the app and load it back up. Also, your second chances have never worked for me. I'll click the button and watch an ad that I can't skip, but when the ad is over it just plays another ad and my second chance never happened. So I basically just watched twice the amount of ads for nothing simply because I was one off of a new skin and wanted to try and get it. It's become a pain to play and the old enjoyment has kinda gone. Also, why is it harder now? Like sure it needs a challenge but the challenge was still there, just in larger numbers. Now it's kinda just confusing. You'll do one thing that use to work and now it works half the time and doesn't the other half. It should be consistent. Also what's with this glitch that when you hold down, it goes straight horizontal? It basically breaks your run and is nearly impossible to land. This game use to be fun. Now, it's hard to play.
Good could be much better
First, when you pay for the app there should be no more advertising period. They are better off charging a little more up front and getting creative then forcing advertisements for an extra life. Second, the physics were supposedly improved in one of the recent updates but in practice the game was made harder because the angles at which the ball stops were increased just enough that previous high score with earlier versions are now much more difficult to attain. That means you are forced to sea more advertisements to continue with an extra life or start from the beginning which is quite disappointing. Finally, they should employ true physics instead of having the ball coming to a hard stop at a predetermined angle. Perhaps they could have it bounce back and if it does determine a penalty of some kind. The game is very very fluid and entertaining but this abrupt stop which basically ends the game is extremely frustrating, they need to come up with a better way to challenge the player.
Fun but slightly irritating
I have been playing this game off and on for about 2 weeks now and I find it to be a fun way to waste some time. It is a simplistic game that can take the average person a while to figure out how to land smoothly.
The reason why I give this game a 3 Star instead of 4 is because of the sheer amount of ridiculous unskippable ads that you are forced to watch to continue playing. I average a 30 second advertisement every 3 ‘deaths’ in the game. And since it is really easy to have to lose even after the first couple of seconds playing, it gets rather irritating quickly. Although you can pay money to get rid of advertisements, it costs $2.99. I just don’t personally feel as if this game has enough joy and content in it to merit paying $3 for, it would be better in all honesty if it was 99 cents because I wouldn’t mind supporting developers.
All in all it is fun and mildly addicting but having to wait and watch 30 second advertisements every couple of minutes gets old quickly.
