Plays Like: Dropping a ball into a well while avoiding obstacles, that’s Kersploosh in a nutshell.

Review Basis: Completed the game.



The Great: The 3D effects are kind of neat, and make this game visually exciting.


The Good:

+ Good amount of unlockables to keep you playing. Every different object controls uniquely, and adds some much needed variety to the gameplay.

+ Kersploosh has one of the coolest video game title in history.


The Bad:

– With only ten levels, you’re looking at a game that can be completed in less than 15 minutes. An hour will show you everything the game has to offer.

– Extremely hard to control no matter which ball you use. They’re not tight enough to navigate your way through flawlessly.

– All the wells are basically slight variations of the ones that came before.

– $2 overpriced. This should be 99 cents at most, maybe then a purchase be justified.


The Lowdown:

While it’s nice to see Nintendo make an effort to release more games to the eShop, Kersploosh should probably be avoided, unless you have time to kill on a bus ride or just want to experience something different with some cool 3D effects. Besides that, this is a quick, short, and easy game that doesn’t control as tight as it should. There are better ways to spend your cash. Buy Gunman Clive instead.

Final Score: 4.0/10
