Our overall verdict "Excellent"

Smashing glass is always a good time if you’re the destructive sort, and being able to bust up panes on your mobile with the tap of a finger is never a bad thing. If you love to watch glass shatter, we’ve got just the thing for you with Smash Hit from Mediocre.

Smash Hit is an interesting little game that puts you to work smashing glass with balls. It’s not your typical ball tossing game either as it borrows a page from endless running games to keep the action moving along.Screenshot_2014-03-07-15-35-09

The game gives you a first-person perspective of the action and as soon as you fire up the game, you start moving through the abstract world of Smash Hit. Your weapons are balls and your only goal is to smash glass which is easier said than done considering you’re constantly moving and so is the glass. Starting out you’ll probably fling balls at random, but you’ll quickly learn that precise shots are the way to go as your balls are limited.Screenshot_2014-03-11-15-27-46

Physics definitely come into play in Smash Hit as do the moving panes of glass that can block your path. If you hit a pane or obstacle you’ll lose some ammo and you run out of balls its game over. You can gain more balls from smashing crystals and get Multiballs from hitting 10 crystals in a row. There are a few other power-ups you can snag along the way, but the gameplay keeps things simple and it’s very effective.

Whenever you die you have to start at the beginning although Smash Hit does support checkpoints through an in-app purchase of $1.99. That purchase also includes cloud saves and stats and is a small price to pay to keep from going back to the beginning. That said, you don’t have to pay a penny to play, but you will have to be pretty damned hardcore if you want to get through all 50 rooms on a single run.Screenshot_2014-03-07-15-35-47

Smash Hit is a game that lives up to its name as it’s quickly become a hit on iOS and Android. It gives you that ‘one more go’ type of feeling every time you pick it up as the backdrops are gorgeous and you’ll want to see what trippy landscape is beyond the next checkpoint. Needless to say, you’ll want to pay for the premium version of you dig the game as it makes life a whole lot easier. We highly recommend this one, and you can pick it up for free on Google Play or the App Store.
