Clone Ball

4.7

Clone Ball is a hyper-casual game released by Supersonic Studios, a mobile game publisher headquartered in Tel Aviv. Supersonic also invites other publishers to submit their games and polish them together with their dedicated team of game designers, animators, monetization experts, etc.

As any popular hyper-casual game, Clone Ball has a minimalistic yet vibrant UI and is straightforward in use. It is free to play yet offers in-app purchases to remove ads and enjoy a seamless experience.

Gamers at heart, we’ve made testing mobile games a crucial part of our Bug Crawl initiative. We love to test games of different genres – be it puzzle, RPG, driving, or arcade games. This time we dived into the hyper-casual niche, and here is our take on how Clone Ball can be improved.

Clone Ball is a good game to kill time. This game is relaxing as it's satisfying to watch the balls multiply. However, the app contains some functional and UI bugs. Developers could maybe add upgrades for how fast the ball can move, how many balls to start off with and how strongly a ball from the cue can ricochet off the wall. Our company and a team of qualified QA engineers help game publishers solve similar issues and appeal to more users thanks to improved app quality and overall experience.
