About this game
Developer: Torched Hill Studio
Content Rating: Everyone
Rhythm-driven Gameplay: Move with the music to overcome even the most difficult hazards, like laser beams or insane camera angles trying to explode both your balls and your brain. Dynamic Music and SFX: The dynamic music by Emmy-nominated composer Nicholas Singer is tailored to the rhythm and style of each level, with sound effects adjusting to the level's music. Without it, you'd fail even harder. Epic Storyline: Not included. Instead, be guided by floor texts that make fun of you when you fail and drop awful puns even if you unexpectedly don't. Scavenger Hunt: Discover secret areas that lead to other secret areas which in turn lead to other secret areas. You get the idea, and maybe even the rainbow that awaits you at the end of the treasure. Probably you'll just google it though. Speedrolling: Replay levels in Rush mode as fast as you can and prove that you are a good person by beating other players' highscores. Style your Balls: Be rewarded with awesome bonus contents like tasty new colors and trail effects for your balls.

Road to Ballhalla seems like one of those trendy games that everyone is going to play and spam on social media, but I say that with the best intentions. If you’re into Let’s Plays, this feels like the perfect game to experience someone’s rage vicariously. I can only imagine the comedy that would be produced with such gamer frustration. Speaking of comedy, I forgot to mention that along the journey, there are text narratives that give you hints, give you sass, and make you feel bad you went against their advice. Not as sassy and snarky as Glados in Portal, but enough to get a chuckle out of you. If you like simple ball rolling puzzles with extreme difficulty and you revel in completionist bragging rights, then Road to Ballhalla is the perfect game for you.
Well, most of the comments are snarky anyway. Despite not having a true story, this game really does it well. The comments are hilarious and it’s not afraid to be a troll. Overall, Road to Ballhalla is a great game. It’s challenging, it’s funny, and it’s something different. The game autosaves as well so it’s definitely one to pick up and play as you go.
Road to Ballhalla is a simple idea with enough neat additions of its own to keep you engaged throughout its twenty-plus levels. Filling that Super Monkey Ball sized gap nicely, this fiendishly difficult ball rolling experience may be a little on the short side but should please those after a challenge they can easily jump in and out of.
