Blue Hole 3D Review

By Andrew Nesvadba, on September 24, 2010


Rating

PROS

  • Challenging semi-endless arcade gameplay.
  • Nice 3D graphics with varied environments.
  • Unlockable vehicles.

CONS

  • Not for the easily frustrated; lots of tricks and traps to end your runs.

VERDICT

If you're after something a little out of the ordinary with a bit of a challenge, Blue Hole will give your reflexes a run for your money as you dive as deep as you possibly can.


  • Full Review

Plumbing the depths of the ocean can be hazardous in many ways, but in 'Blue Hole' by Leaders Association you'll need to avoid some seriously deadly obstacles as you attempt to make your way down as far as possible.

Your submarine of choice, of which there are three in total, will start its journey near the surface and quickly starts to plummet downwards in to cavernous deeps filled with deadly creatures, mines and tight passages that are ready to tear you apart. On your way down you can tilt their iDevices to avoid these hazards while collecting coins, power-ups and bonuses to increase your score or help you to avoid further damage.

Blue Hole looks absolutely amazing, with areas changing in appearance over time to give you a quick indicator of just how far you've traveled. While the levels are static and don't get randomized each time you play, each area is designed with various tricks that require risky maneuvers, a sharp memory and lightning quick reflexes to survive. Players are rewarded with points as they progress, unlocking up to two additional ships to use to make their trips easier, but don't get suckered in to a false sense of security as the lower depths are incredibly challenging.

Much like 'The Impossible Game', Blue Hole is a simple action arcade title that will test your reflexes and memory and if you don't mind incremental success this game will reward you with a challenge that's only as hard as you want it to be.

I love these kind of games. And if Its like Mega Jump then I'm definately going to buy it. I really wonder how you make all these game reviews, maintain the site, post comments AND have a price tracking system for more than 30,000 Ipod/Iphone apps....daily....

While I'd like to take credit for it all, I'm just the Editor so my stuff is perhaps the most visible. We have programmers to maintain the site and server (many improvements have been made over the last fortnight and I'm sure a lot of people will notice the improved speed), price tracking is automated and the rest is just good time management on my part ;)

Similiar to mega jump, but a lot better with 3D graphics, items, and upgrades.
