Hole.io is a brand new Portal-inspired action experience in which you can make entire districts disappear! You have to consume as many objects as possible and grow your hole to enormous sizes. Can you do that without failures?
Graphics/Sound – 10/10
Hole.io has smooth 3D visuals with pretty good lighting and dynamic shading. There are so many types of buildings and other objects in the Hole.io city that you won’t ever get tired from repetitive scapes. This world is also full of tiny details and hundreds of animated objects.
It’s so fun and addictive to watch them falling into nowhere that I can do it for hours.
Although it’s a 3D experience with a lot of detail, Hole.io is supported by a rather old Android 4.4 and iOS 9.3.5. Besides, you can launch it in any web browser on your computer.
Interface and Controls – 10/10
You need only one finger to play Hole.io. It supports only portrait screen orientation, so it’s comfortable to play with your thumb on the go. You have to tap and hold the screen in any place and move your finger in any direction to make the hole move.
Watch out holes of other players. They all have arrows that show direction so that you can avoid colliding. The interface allows you to see players that come close to you as arrows on the sides of the screen. You can also see how much time left until the end of the current match and see who’s the best player on the field.
Gameplay – 10/10
Inspired by Portal by Valve and the incredibly popular Slither.io, Hole.io by VOODOO Games reinvents the concept of IO games. This game is not just about eating snakes and dots. It’s a full-fledged 3D experience in which you can grow your character by consuming buildings, people, transport, and other stuff. It looks impressive and feels so much crazy! The gameplay objective is to grow the hole big enough to let it soak smaller holes and earn more points.
Objects of the environment are the main meal for holes, but they’re much less “nutritious” that holes. That’s why you have to be quick and chase everyone who has a smaller character. That’s the only way to grow big and achieve a chance to survive until the end.
Lasting Appeal – 10/10
Although you have to do the same thing all the time, it feels incredibly rewarding to beat high scores. Hole.io is a hardcore experience that requires both attentiveness and braveness. That’s why it’s so thrilling to play. I’ve nearly smashed my iPhone while testing it for this review because there’s always someone who plays Hole.io better and eat my hole! It’s a perfect trainer for speed of reaction and strategy-making skills.
Hole.io is one of the best-looking IO-style games so far. Moreover, it’s a pleasure to play it. It’s difficult to find something more addictive to play after this game, and it’s the only disadvantage. It’s much better than endless runners and allows you to compete with hundreds of real players every day. You can download Hole.io on Google Play and App Store or play online on the official website of VOODOO Games.
