Review – Fit in the Hole Android Game

I have to wonder if at least some inspiration for Fit in the Hole by Ketchapp was drawn from Fox’s short lived television show, Hole in the Wall.  First, those who know me know I am not a fan of endless running games and that is essentially what Fit in the Hole is.  What is unique here is the reflex based puzzle elements.  But is that enough to save the game?

The premise is simple.  You control a single yellow-orange block that can move around the playfield.  Also on the playfield are white blocks and an oncoming wall with a certain shape cut out of it.  To survive you simply tap on the left and right side of the screen to move and attempt replicating the hole that is quickly approaching.  Don’t do that and well, it is game over- one chance per attempt.  That is tough.

Graphically Fit in the Hole is minimal – not even pixel art minimal, more like Atari 2600 minimal.  Square blocks of single color and a star field in the background are about the only thing you are going to see in Fit in the Hole.  The difference is that minimal graphics style works really well here as you can focus strictly on that shape coming at you.

The frustration level is set on high as the challenge of copying the oncoming shape becomes harder as you progress.  This is the one thing I wish could be worked on- maybe making the difficulty curve a little more natural.  I am hitting near impossible to catch up with designs by wall number five or six (my best is ten or so).

Much like Fox’s Hole in the Wall, minus the fake drama of a team, Fit in the Hole captured my attention till the frustration rolled in.  If you are prone to rage quitting you may want to skip Fit in the Hole.
