    Good purchase for the sale, but I admit the hit boxes need work. It is also frustrating how some of my data was deleted after I exited the game.

    Ding Dong XL is a game that is so basic in concept, it’s difficult to get very excited about.

It does, however, offer addictive, challenging gameplay for those with a strong competitive streak.

    These types of one-button game typically require least in manual dexterity, and most in reflexes, reactions, and foresight. Ding Dong XL is exactly this: Pong (if you controlled both bats, and they were ‘sticky’, and you couldn’t move them from the centre) + the traffic from Frogger (with a lot more variation). Plus power-ups.

    It’s essentially a game of ‘chicken’, a judgement on exactly when you need to fire the ball from one side to the other, in order to avoid colliding with the junk flying across, in either direction — usually both. Each piece of debris does one of a variety of different things, indicated by its colour and shape: some expand and contract, some rotate, etc. A small number of power-ups do things like slow obstacles down, allow you to crash straight through them, or destroy all the bad stuff currently on-screen.

    The neon graphics, rhythmic soundtrack, and in-your-face animation remind me very much of Lumines; there’s always a lot going on in the background and periphery, as the game constantly tries to put you off, daring you to fail. This is a welcome refinement to the core gameplay, but it can get frustrating at times.

    What’s here is well done — there just isn’t that much here. The more you play, the more stuff appears to get in your way, but nothing really changes too much. It’s essentially a ‘rinse-repeat’ cycle: start, stay alive as long as you can, set a new high score, try to stay alive longer the next time, etc. It’s a compelling challenge if you like setting personal bests, but it’s certainly the kind of game that some will tire of pretty quickly.

    One button game without depth that really isn't that enjoyable. Back and forth while more objects get thrown across the screen. I think theOne button game without depth that really isn't that enjoyable. Back and forth while more objects get thrown across the screen. I think the addiction aspect comes from the 1 hit you've lost and lives last a brief moment depending on your skill.. Expand
