While this is a great game, it does appear to have a couple of flaws. The biggest one I came across was its inability to run on my iPad – which is a pretty serious flaw for an app that claims to be compatible with bot the iPad and iPhone. It worked great on my iPhone which allowed me to enjoy some great game play, but it would have been nice to try it out on the bigger screen of my iPad. Another minor issue with this one is that it does contain in-app purchases, although these are not essential to game play and you don’t have to access them at all if you don’t want to. It also contains the occasional pop-up ad. This app will require 155 MB of available space on your iOS device.
How to Play
The game begins with your car in the garage where you can purchase some customizations for your car, but you’ll need to collect coins through the successful completion of races before you can take advantage of this or you can also get a head start through the use of in-app purchases. You can also access different language options, refuel your vehicle, and check out your stats in the garage as well.
The actual race itself features two main sections – when you begin, you start off in racing mode with two simple features to control your car. If you slide back and forth on the steering wheel icon you can move your car from left to right and if you tap on the accelerator icon you can make your car move forward at increasing speed. Along the way, you’ll have to dodge bombs, spikes in the road, and other cars while also looking for special bonus items such as coins and turbo boosts. Eventually you’ll crash through a series of barriers which will take you into battle mode. Once you arrive here, the aim switches from racing to crash derby, but in an exciting twist you can also fire rockets at opposing cars. You win when all the other cars are blown up or knocked off the cliff. If you’re the last man standing, you’ll receive some extra coins to spend in the garage as well. This game features nonstop action which will keep you moving from start to finish.
