Review Standarts
Our main goal is to provide full and useful app reviews. Our authors strictly follow the rules: minimum 15 hours of the real app usage experience or gameplay, test on main Android and iOS versions, test on phones and tablets.

We all harbor secret ambitions of becoming swordsmen in another life. With Knife Hit, that dream turns to reality on Android and iOS mobile, as you hurl a set of knives onto a rotating log in the hopes of securing all of them, slicing a few tomatoes and ultimately breaking the logs.

Plot - 5/5

From the onset, the objective of the game seems just as simple as breaking the logs. As you progress, you begin to see just how difficult mastering the art of knife throwing is. You not only have to break the logs but also ensure that you don’t hit spikes or the other knives that you’ve thrown. It makes Knife Hit quite addictive and not as simple as one might think. Fitting all the knives on a single log, especially when the game is at a higher tempo, is a difficult thing to acquire. You need to develop your technique as the slightest miscalculation will end the game.

Just when you thought things couldn’t get better, at the end of every 5th level is a boss battle which brings an even harder knife throwing challenge. This also unlocks new knives which add to your armor – you can buy them using apples.

Visuals - 4/5

The biggest miss about Knife Hit is that it’s always played from a top-down perspective which can get tiring. It does help that the animation is tastefully done and that the entire system is extremely user-friendly. The knives also come in diverse patterns, colors, and shapes which makes the whole set-up much less monotonous. There are boss tomatoes, lemons, sushi rolls, fortune wheels and all other kinds of colorful bosses.

Replay Value - 4/5

The replayability and excitement on Knife Hit are initially high but lose luster quickly. The pace is great initially, but the boss fights get harder dramatically, and it proves more difficult to unlock knives. This kind of difficulty spike seems uncalled for given the game’s casual nature. There aren’t any options for customizing your own game experience or making it any different. The content is very light, to say the least.

Controls - 4.5/5

The controls are intuitive and suited for a game with such a simple premise. There are no button combos that you need to be aware of, as everything has been distilled to a tap mechanism which launches your knife at the target. Though only tapping is required, making a perfect timing of the knives does need some skills. In the menus, you can swipe and tap to select your preferred knife.

Conclusion

Knife Hit is a game that’s quite simple with little superfluity to it. What the game lacks in content, it makes up for in sheer excitement with an added tinge of addiction. Earning more collectible knives is the only replay value that the game offers, but this is enough to keep you around longer to face the next boss. This is a perfect game for a lazy afternoon with nothing else to do.

Cons:

  • Occasional glitches
  • Too many ads
  • Progress is difficult when a boss appears.

Pros:

  • Simple gameplay
  • Intuitive controls
  • Lots of collectible knives and legendary bosses to play against
  • The graphics are colorful and user-friendly.
