Geometry Dash Meltdown is an almost identical version of RobTop Games AB previously successful app Geometry Dash. This makes it seem like an unnecessary creation, but it’s new features give it a spooky feel that may attract some gamers.

The goal of the Geometry Dash Meltdown is the same as Geometry Dash: navigate a square through an increasingly hostile environment by tapping the screen in order to avoid the obstacles to complete the level. If the square touches anything that could kill it like spikes or monsters on the path the player must start from the beginning. Practice mode also remains an option allowing players to start at a saved spot instead of the beginning if the player dies. That feature is a great idea because it gives the player practice and an idea of what is coming during the level.

Geometry Dash Meltdown’s new features include the new settings the levels are in and the items one could come across while trying to complete a phase. Monsters are one of these new items players could find and they can kill the square if the player fails to avoid them. The monster is a nice touch but the game lacks a wider variety of scary characters that fit into the new theme. Keys are another new feature to this version. If the player comes across a key it can unlock things like the next part of path or a hidden platform that reveals a coin.

So far RobTop Games AB have released three levels: The Seven Seas, Viking Arena and Airborne Robots. Robert Topala is the developer of this app and said that five levels will be released with subsequent updates, but for now only three levels are available. That is exciting for players because they have a reason to keep the app once finished.

Geometry Dash Meltdown was executed well and is an overall fun and addicting game but it seems unnecessary to download if one already owns Geometry Dash because the games are so similar. If one is a fan of Geometry Dash and completed all of the levels then this is a good app to invest time in.
