Published On: January 5, 2021By Categories: Feature Updates

Writing a review is just one way players contribute to the conversation around a game, but reviews can have a significant impact on user acquisition efforts. To make it easier to understand what’s being said about games via reviews, Spiketrap has rolled out numerous improvements to review summaries, including:

  • Custom date control
  • Full review history
  • Enhanced review topic pages

With this update, the experience exploring reviews for a game is more closely aligned to the way conversations are viewed on the platform, providing:

  • Unified insight across review sources
  • Clarity into themes and topics
  • A historical perspective of the moments that matter

Each new feature is explained in detail below.
