    Quickest? Maybe. Easiest? Definitely not.

    I bought Spiral Splatter before reading this article because it was cheap and I am not going to be able to complete it. I keep smashing into the walls while not even trying for three star times. Probably plenty easy for some but not this guy.

    It seems hard at first but it gets easier. The harder levels seem to be in beginning

    Had my eye on Mulaka since there was a review posed here and it looked interesting. Will be sure to give that a go!

    You definitely need a bit of luck for some later levels, but I second Billz.

    Yeh the ratios lie on that one. At least for me.

    Some levels in Spiral Splatter are real rough, but you can still knock it out in 2 or so hours with trial and error. Just takes patience. Like Billz said, it starts off a lot harder, but the levels gets easier towards the end and you get better. There are much harder games with lower ratios.
    If at first you don't succeed, lag switch.

    I bought Spiral Splatter but my old brain isn't quick enough for it, it hurts my soul. I bought Danger Zone 1 last week, so will grab the sequel too, love that game, easy pick up and play.

    Also Tyler Model 005 looks like an easy completion for £4 this week.

    I just can't control the ball finely enough with the controller. Hard for me to move in a straight angled line. Spiral Splatter needs a mouse. I'll probably never finish that.

    Agreed. There are some later levels you hardly need to boost but some early ones you have to boost almost the entire time. I can still remember one level you’re kind of making a diamond shape, took me forever to get three stars on that.

    That's the one that made me realize early on I was in trouble!

    I agree it's much harder than the ratio would lead you to believe. I think the later levels are longer, but also easier, because the times required for 3 stars are a bit more lenient. They expect you to make mistakes, whereas with the earlier levels, it seems you almost have to be perfect at times to get 3 stars.

    As someone whose completed spiral splatter (in conciderably longer than 1-2 hours) I'd warn anyone whose looking for a quick win. The game is no joke and it's also prone to losing progress on exit. Buyer beware!

    EDIT: Just doing a quick "back of the fag packet" calculation, the average completion time is two and three quarter hours. 1-2 hours is the mode group, but it's a bit misleading as there's a much bigger skew to the right than the left...

    Decided to roll the dice on Spiral Splatter. Looks like a game that can have easy parts, but also give a little challenge. Definitely one that can be done with a little persistence.

    Spiral Splatter would be easy with a joystick. The Xbox pad is horrible for those sort of games.
