This game is not worth it
*1*2*3*4*5*6*7*8*9*10* on 6/16/2018
Its just a Rowling ball going down a trail and it cost me three dollars.its not Evan fun I got bore of it after 5 minutes of playing. DONT BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!
Love this game!!!!
RachelCannon421 on 6/3/2018
Best game ever!!!! So fun!!!!
Please add more control options!!
guppy11702 on 5/23/2018
The game is fun, intense, and rather entertaining, but I’ll always find myself missing a jump because I was just slightly off on hitting the arrows. If you could add motion controls or permanent/bigger control settings that would be great.
Jsudhxh alajznsnalsnd on 5/16/2018
I realized that the turning is way too wide for corners. So basically I always go flying off the edge and cannot recover.
All it’s missing is the a,s keys
Marc42968 on 5/13/2018
Come on, in a device with motion sensors you need to press left and right for a game about a rolling ball? I wasted my money!
Seems odd that phone motion doesn’t control the ball
highway to zoom zoom on 5/6/2018
Seems to me using a phone’s motion sensor to control turns would be way intuitive than the directional arrows. Played for about a minute and deleted it. Too bad, since simplicity of the graphics was appealing 😔
Inconsistent controls
jvrockfn on 5/3/2018
This is a very challenging app, but it becomes very frustrating when the amount of pressure you need to use when turning seems to change mid-game. If this is a game feature, it’s completely stupid. If it is a defect, there is no way to report it to the developer
Utterly unplayable
CPmkI on 5/3/2018
Seriously, did anyone test drive this first?
Complete waste of money
DearJuly1987 on 5/2/2018
As other reviewers have stated, the idea is good but the controls are very poor. Not at all fun and extremely frustrating – do not buy this.
Aptly named
Marty McGuy on 4/10/2018
I'll grant at least the name was 100% accurate. But that doesn't make it very fun.
Superb gameplay but w/a couple bugs
QuasarBooster on 4/2/2018
I find this game incredibly addicting. Whenever I'm bored I get an urge to play it. Simple to just get right into and easy to exit as well (if my salt levels become too high). There are two aspects of the movement, however, that make it hard to fully unwind and immerse oneself in this game. First, there's bouncing. Occasionally, the ball jumps like it's life depended on it, probably around 4 times higher than normal. It happens unpredictably: sometimes when I'm expecting a typical rebound, sometimes when merely turning around a corner, sometimes when I'm traveling in a straight line with no bumps. It wouldn't be so bad if the sudden airtime allowed me to turn quickly enough to stay over a curving track. But far too often the giant bounce throws me off the track with no possible recovery, ending the run. Secondly, even worse, is the momentum stop. Just as sporadically as the giant bounce, I'll not so seldom have my ball just stop completely, losing all ability to resist falling off the track. This is a guaranteed run killer unless I happen to be on completely zero inclined track. Just last round, my ball stopped AND teleported way off the track. These bouncing and momentum stopping glitches can only be handled so much with reflexes and controls. Most of the time, they, not your skill as a player, determine your high score, kinda taking the fun and challenge out of it. I wish that weren't the case.
There’s a Counterfeit!
This game is phenomenal: the graphics are smooth, the music is immersive, and the game runs nicely. However, a copy of this game was made called Twisty Road, which is just a poorly made remake of this game with worse graphics, music, and game engine. Download Impossible Road, the original, and not the copy.
Fun but controls are hard
The real review 🤯 on 3/11/2018
I love this game it’s the best. To give an overview of the game, it’s a challenging and hard game. You have to roll a ball on the road without falling of. But you can get back on the road before time runs out But the controls are hard because when I tap, it goes to far and I change the 3D thingy and it doesent help, so I would like to know how this works
Good idea, controls don't work well
tmptplayer on 3/4/2018
The idea of this game is nice and appealing, but the cone tools are awkward and sometimes non-responsive. You press on the screen, and there is no indication that your fingers are where the turn buttons are mapped. And sometimes there is a half second delay to see your input registered (sometimes not) which makes a big difference in a reflex controlled game. I'd recommend making the entire left/right sides mapped to turning. And/or enable an option to unmask the buttons showing feedback when pressed
Tpb22 on 3/4/2018
I love the game.....Please make the arrows to control turns bigger...or just sensitive sides of the screen. You get going and you miss the small controls😡😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬🤬
Awful. Not fun.
🐼ㄗ丹れ刀丹 on 3/4/2018
Waay too difficult even for the the most extreme gamer. Why not at least just start it slow and easy and get people into it, you completely ruined it, esp for people who would like to just relax and play a game, this puts your stress levels in overdrive and makes you angry because you just think how inconsiderate the developer was to the majority of people. I tried re-downloading this game and giving it a second shot, now I remember why I deleted it last time and even from my purchase history. Bunch of crap. IF only you got it to start off slowly and then go faster. Utter nonsense.
Ridiculously difficult
electron translator on 3/3/2018
Good luck getting more than 12 points. This game is pretty limited and near “impossible” to pass. Guess they named it correctly.
Can’t turn left
Broken and crashes on 3/2/2018
This game is challenging enough, but I can’t figure out why my left turn works only sometimes and not every time? Can someone explain to me why the left isn’t as responsive as the right?
Poor controls and physics
JonLong on 3/2/2018
The concept of the game is neat, but the controls and physics make the game annoying to play.
Great game, but...
DarkSi08 on 3/1/2018
This is a great game, marred by terrible controls. On an iPad Pro 9.7”, it is the controls that constantly mess me up. The hit box for the controls is downright tiny, and makes what could be a difficult, fun game extremely frustrating.
Why So Much Apple Pub?
Konokopia on 2/28/2018
I don’t know why this game gets so much publicity from the App Store, but after seeing it on various occasions, I finally relented and got it. I played it for a few seconds and got quickly bored. It is challenging, I suppose, but I did not find it fun enough to become better at it.
Adamis2cool on 2/27/2018
I’m not to good at the game but it does get very frustrating. It is very fun but if you are looking for a calming game this one is not for you. 3 days after getting the game I had 12 broken lamps and 4 1/2 broken toasters.
Jdhgsgsvsv on 2/21/2018
Enjoyable but would be better if the time from falling off the track to reset was longer.
Not worth it
Ejejjdhdsjidjeshedokwheys! on 2/18/2018
I don’t know why i payed 2 dollars for this ... it would make a great free game . Save your money for something else .
Not worth it
Nighguy on 2/18/2018
Unless you want to spend 30 minutes failing at this game to get over the learning curve then don’t waste your time. Not worth it if you just want a quick game to play.
Too Hard
00Darren00 on 2/15/2018
This game is too hard. It really need some more options that would allow you to slow down the marble and possibly some bumpers on the corners for novice players. Unless you’re really patient I’d leave this game behind.
Faster than Sonic
Jdhdhveveghej on 2/14/2018
This game is what a wireframe version of a good Sonic game should look like. Fast paced, easy to maneuver, and having the ability to go where you please.
The Original, and The Better
TH3_OV3RLORD on 2/13/2018
If you are reading this, you’ve probably heard of a game called Twisty Road. I’m going to give it to you straight, don’t buy it and if you already have it delete it. This game is the original, and holy crap is it good. Super fluid, good music, and good controls no matter what people say. Buy now instead of Voodoo’s ripoff. This has no ads and runs better.
Tough but fun
IncredibleMention on 2/12/2018
This game is tough but a good time. I just wish it was a tiny bit more forgiving when you miss a turn. Would be fun to tumble down the track a bit. I’m just starting tho so I’ll keep improving. I will say it is not much like Luge...
Great game, but needs some fixes
DaBen10 on 2/12/2018
This game is fun and challenging, but the controls need to be smoother so does the bounce of the ball. When the ball falls and hits the road it bounces all over the place like there is no gravity. The ball also will bounce off the track on sharp turns sometimes. The ball shouldn’t bounce off the track, but rather stick to the track unless u go off of it. Also it would nice to have some unlocks in the game like different roads or ball colors to work towards.
Not actual a Luge game
Jbriggs555 on 2/11/2018
Unlike the artwork this is not a luge game, just a boring ball that is hard to control consistently. Waste of $3 :(
This ad is misleading, nothing like luge
Melon2336 on 2/11/2018
Good try marketing team. If like luge you mean you are moving down a path, sure. Game is ok but I hate this style of marketing
Name of the game is accurate.
BayesianInitiate on 2/10/2018
If your idea of fun is learning how to balance an egg on a pencil tip, this game is for you. Starts out impossible from the very first moment. Too impossible to even say if the controls are bad. A great soundtrack might make the masochistic futility of it go down better, but it’s just meh. Editors led us astray with this one.
Garbage controls
StringCheeseInc on 2/10/2018
Controls very glitchy - fun for about 7 seconds.
Poor controls, poor random track generation.
Vjkvnrejknvrkejnvkfdjnkv on 2/10/2018
3D touch based controls were a poor choice. Also, any success is too reliant on the randomly generated track.
Can I have my $2.99 back?
ConsciousDistortion on 2/9/2018
Found this game impossible to master in the slightest. The ball flings off the track, bounces erratically, and half the time I can’t see what’s ahead because there’s a large opaque ball in my view. A transparency slider for the ball would be a start, but even still. Pretty game, but I’m deleting after 10 min. Yes I could give it more time, but why?
NMiddaugh5517 on 1/29/2018
We need a mode with gravity!
Not For Noobs and Haters
SpikeyTH16 on 1/27/2018
I don’t know why people are complaining that this game is hard, HELLO! Look at the title, it’s supposed to be impossible, sure the controls are stiff, but it takes practice, trial and error and it can make the game easier. But if you don’t care then you’re just a hater and a noob, just play something else.
Can’t turn
This game would be fun but the turning sensitivity is beyond low and almost not even there. I literally cannot even turn the ball to move with the tracks at all. Fix this or your game will continue to get bad reviews.
This needs more content
WaffleBlu69 on 1/19/2018
I need more modes and things to do. I paid money for this and expect a lot of content to keep me addicted! If there was like a life mode or a timer mode or different collectables then I would be satisfied with my purchase. But right now I might request a refund if they don’t add anything to this.
Needs rewards?
Colocmaram on 1/16/2018
I absolutely love this game. It's a challenge, with a new way to control where you're going and a sense of risking your points. However, I wish this game had more skins to go along with it, a customization thing for the ball, and maybe a currency you collect in-game? Otherwise this game is so good, and much better than twisty road in my opinion.
willrechner on 1/6/2018
I would try and do something about Voodoo completely copying your amazing game. Voodoo’s complete copy of this game is called TwistyRoad and is too much like your game. Contact Voodoo to take TwistyRoad down.
I love this game but
Cole stafford on 1/3/2018
Voodoo basically remade your game
Literally impossible
Dotty33444 on 1/2/2018
There’s a challenge and then there’s this. It’s not fun when the ball cant be controlled no matter what you do.
The review 360 on 12/31/2017
Great graphics! Fun game.
Worst game ever
Cool kids Big Dude on 12/10/2017
I keep turning But it some times Dosent even move
ROBLOX RULES! on 11/30/2017
I bought this cause my friend showed me how fun it is so I got the game and it's super ADDICTING OMG!
Bad steering
Jeffrey404 on 11/23/2017
The steering is awful 💩 you can't stay on the tracks at all I know that's the point but it could be better and you bounce around like a crazy ball. Its challenging which I like but awful steering not worth money. 👎🏻☹️
Some options for improvement
Am36master on 11/22/2017
Don’t get me wrong—it’s fun as-is, but I’m frustrated by the difficulty of in-air control and the inability for the ball to stick on the track after even the slightest incline. What would be great: a light ball/heavy ball option. A light ball could be more easily-controlled in the air, but it could hardly stick to the track. A heavy ball would suit the players who prefer to stay on the track, but it would be hard to control if the player made a mistake and let it fly.
Amazing but fix the title screen.
Wyatt K. on 11/20/2017
This game is amazing and I’m currently addicted to it. The only thing I’m begging you to fix is the position of the ball in the title screen. As the ball falls down the screen and gets small and closer to the A. It is noticeable that the ball is slightly off center. Obviously this is not a big problem but it would make me so much more satisfied if every time the app opened all the parts were centered and symmetrical. Otherwise amazing. Thank you.
