Splatters (Xbox Live Arcade) Review

Splatters was developed by Spiky Snail and released on the Xbox Live Arcade Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points a copy was provided for The Xbox Way (us) for Review .


Splatter is one of the few games on the Xbox Live Arcade Marketplace which addicted me for a long time. It is a colorful game which uses your mind in a genius way and uses your creativity and imagination in a high level to challenge you to complete each level.

While Most of physics-based games in the Xbox Live Marketplace end up being horrible and not worth your time because of their tricky or simply irresponsible physics, Splatters avoided all of these mistakes to make a perfect physics-based hitter.


In the Splatters, you basically control triangular or rectangular bodies ready to die in Kamikaze Style In order to destroy diamonds and gold across a level. Of Course this isn’t all of the deal you can change its direction miss up with the physic in order to get even more destruction. However its worth noting Splatters has color restriction for example color Red Splatters can only destroy red diamonds but gold can be destroyed be any Splatter.

Splatters offer gamers a huge amount of levels and game modes as well as having a good social integration this helps in the replay value of the game.

There are three modes in the games:

  1. Combo Nation            63  Levels

  2. Master Shots              96  Levels

  3. Become a talents       36  Levels

Become a talent is the first and mandatory game mode in this game mode you learn the game objectives and basics as well as a big variety of Stunts and Skills Which you will need in order to win in the following levels . There is about 12 Special Moves to learn this helps to keep the game fresh and keeps you addicted to it a bit longer.

Splatters also have social mode integrated which is (Splatters TV) In Splatters TV Player has the Choice to share their gameplay online to all Splatters Gamers across the Globe.

However there is no multiplayer at this point the replay value fall a bit. I really wanted to compete with someone on who will get a selected value first!

Category Score: 10/10

Graphics and Sound:

We made sound the in one category because the Splatters isn’t about sounds or graphic it’s about fun that is what I showed you on the gameplay section.

The guys at Spiky Snail Spent a good time making sure that the game has detailed levels, characters and obstacles and while having 100+ Levels they made sure that every level has the same crisp and clear graphic feel and a responsive frame rate .

Spiky Snail team also did a pretty good job in the Sounds category of the game. Splat and Explosion Sounds help in make the game fell a bit more realistic

Score: 10/10


Spiky Snail should be proud by what they created , they Simply created a hitter which offers fun gameplay to any gamer with the small asking price of 10$

Final Score:   9.5/10
