Time for an old-school reaction game! The Collider, made by Shortbreak Studios s.c., is one of the simplest games I’ve ever played but as the saying goes: don’t judge a book by its cover. This game brought back that nasty competition beast in me, even if it was just for a little while.



The Collider doesn’t have any kind of story so there’s really not much to say here. Moving on!


Simple yet effective. The game offers colorful tunnels to fly through which perfectly suit the electronic music. As this game is a super fast one, I don’t recommend it for people who are sensitive for headaches or nausea when playing games where everything moves at an incredible speed.

Each time you reach a new speed limit, the colors of the tunnel and spinning discs change. As you’ll have zero time to watch your progress below on screen, this is a great way to know if you’ve unlocked the next starting point (more about this in the Gameplay section). Also, it keeps the game from getting graphically boring too fast.



The soundtrack matches this kind of games perfectly. The music starts off pretty calm but as you progress and make more speed, the music doesn’t stay behind. Soon enough, you’ll hear some more ‘dramatic’ beats in the song which only enhance the feeling that you should act as fast as possible to survive the tunnel with its deadly spinning discs.

Although that one song is pretty good, it would’ve been nice if there were some more songs to play the game with. After a while, the song loses its effect a bit.



The Collider is a very easy game to learn as it only requires you to move your cursor (or Apple/Android device) through hoops and if possible, while collecting as much coins as possible.

With that single sentence, I nearly explained the whole game, it really is that simple. But as this wouldn’t be much of a review, I’ll try to put every piece of information concerning The Collider on this page.

You start at a very low pace. Some discs with holes approach you and it’s all a matter of getting through the holes without touching the borders. Most of the time, some of those holes will have coins in them. Bring out your inner Mario and start collecting! These coins are very important as they give you the change to repair yourself, should you crash by touching the borders. As long as you keep collecting those coins, you can keep repairing yourself and make a nice ‘run’ before it’s game over.


The very first levels are not much of a challenge but they prepare you for what lies ahead. Soon enough, those little discs prove to be harder and harder to pass through, as they start spinning or when the holes in them approach in different shapes.

Luckily, if you do fail the game after having an incredible run, you mustn’t worry about having to start the whole thing over again. You can choose the starting point provided that you reached that point in the past. Starting then, it’s all about getting to that next checkpoint and getting higher and higher on the leader boards.

Although the easiness of this game is to its credit, you probably won’t play it for long. It’s a great game to play when you have 10 minutes of spare time but don’t expect to be entertained for hours upon hours. At one point, you find yourself trying over and over again to reach that next checkpoint but if you keep on failing, eventually you just give up.


If you like fast paced games which test your reaction speed and ability not to blink for quite a while, you’ll most likely want to try out The Collider. The game is easy to get into and although it’s a very fast game, you might actually relax while playing it. Unfortunately, the game is pretty bare and it won’t take long before you look for entertainment elsewhere.
