Don’t Get Spiked bluntly states what the game is about right there in the title. This is one of those mobile games which have a strong central mechanic but nothing else and rely on your need to set a higher score. Similar games are Flip and 360° Don’t Touch the Spikes. The screen simply has a bouncing figure and a row of slabs at the bottom out of which a few are spiked at all times. The game requires you to really focus and be as fast as you can. The level of difficulty keeps rising and it is always a pleasure to try and beat your previous score. The points you collect within the game can be redeemed for different characters which include an astronaut, a Lego man’s head, a Pokeball and a triangle, among many others. The colours of the game change every time you play and that makes it a little bit more interesting.
The soundtrack is perfect for zoning out and this game is also pretty great to centre yourself. The concentration it requires will consume your thoughts and stop you from worrying about that exam or the report that needs to be submitted. This is probably not too great for your professional life but do play it whenever you need to calm down. You cannot play this game for too long at a time but it will always be interesting when you return.
The best use of Don’t Get Spiked is to try and get the highest score that you possibly can and then challenge your friends to score higher. They will always fall for it. There are ads which pop up more frequently than ideal but then again, this game is absolutely free. Go ahead and install this game. You will be the better for it.
