As I started this app the graphics are so far ok not bad there are three options to choose from Race, Settings & Instructions.
Under settings you have control over master volume as well as music volume which I turned down after testing for 2 hours last night. From hit back to main menu I than selected instructions which give you basic game play instructions next option controls and finally credits, the who’s who behind this app.
Now after getting a brief overview of this app we are ready to play. Once you select Race you come to the next screen to select a track only a few select tracks are open to race while the others remain locked until you qualify in the top three in the previous race to unlock the next track in line. Each Track gets hard to complete, I found the loop track the seventh one to be the most difficult out of the eight tracks. You have two styles of trucks to choose the first is more modern and reminds me of a the newer Cadillac’s in the front with big rear exhaust pipes while they other truck resembles an older style ford truck with flames.
While I didn’t dislike this game, The game play is very limited, no steering your truck stays in a straight line throughout the race you use the motion technology on the iPhone to rotate which cause the truck to come back even as far as a wheelie to set up a launch off of jumps and than rotate forward to land your truck. Along the track there are nitro bottle that cause a speed burst as you run them over, In the lower left corner you have your brake, In the lower right corner you will find your gas peddle as well as a cruise control button that can be activated by tapping it on/off.
At $1.99 I would pass on this app, It needs some improvements mostly in game play and at most it should be priced at $0.99. From back in september 2008 when I started this site I have seen the programming and Game Quality improve a ton how ever I didn’t feel this game take advantage of all the capabilities of the iPhone. I do see that this app is popular in the app store but I have a feeling it will drop back rather fast as all this new app’s are being released each day with outstanding game play, graphics, etc…
