Escape Fast! app review: an action-packed game

Reviews

Introduction

Escape Fast! is a fast-paced, action game for the iPhone and iPad that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you guide your character, a bank robber, who is chasing after his fellow bank robber. The latter has just run away with all the money and you must catch him while staying away from the obstacles and of course, the police chasing after you!

This app is available for 99 cents in the App Store, reduced from its usual price of $1.99 as a Christmas sale, and it takes up just 50.3 MB of space on your iDevice. This is pretty impressive considering the detailed gameplay and many levels that will keep you entertained for hours and hours!

Let's take a closer look at this game.

The Story

Escape Fast! starts off with a cutscene where you and your fellow robber go into the bank, manage to steal the money, and get out safe, but that's when the plot thickens. Your friend runs off with your share of the money and leaves you to be caught by the cops.

So you do what any betrayed bank robber would do in that situation? You steal a cab and chase after him!

Start the game and you'll find some hilarious script from the betrayer, who scoffs at your naivety, informing you that he will be heading to "some exotic island with some chicks riding in a red Ferrari without you." The nerve! The game has more than 20 levels that you must cross to get to your partner-in-crime-turned-nemesis.

Levels and Gameplay

Each level has its own objective. For instance, in Level 1, you must zip through the road as quickly as possible while avoiding some obstacles. Level 2 is when you are facing a fuel shortage, so you must collect all the fuel tanks in order to keep going.

If you hit an obstacle, you'll lose points, and if you run out of fuel or points, then you're done for! You can try replaying the level again. If you get through the level without a scratch, then you will get a perfect score.

The best part about this game, I feel, is the controls. Users have the option to choose between a Virtual Pad, and a pair of buttons. The former comes highly recommended by the developers, and it's evident why. The virtual pad plays like a joystick or an old-school console game, allowing users to have a completely unique gaming experience. It takes some getting used to, but with a bit of practice, you'll feel like a five-year-old again.

The buttons, which only allow you to move left or right, are very difficult and cumbersome; no matter how long I practiced, I just couldn't get the hang of it.
