The Thursday Find - REKT

Well hello there. It's nice to see you. Been a while. Been up to anything nice? You didn't!?! Really? That is certainly a turn up for the books. Although you should probably go to the doctor and get that checked out. Y'know, just in case.

Anyway, you might have noticed that it's Thursday. And that means it's time to do a Thursday Find. That's when we pick the one game that's come out this week that you definitely, definitely should be playing. And quite frankly this week the choice was pretty damn simple.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store. And if you've got experiences with the game you want to share, or you just want to tell me I'm a stupid jerk who gets everything wrong, then feel free to let me know in the comments. Peace out.

REKT

What would happen if, while you were playing Rocket League, you accidentally managed to drive your rocket car out of the arena and directly into the path of a mobile skateboarding game? Well, in that highly unlikely scenario, you'd probably end up with REKT.

It's a game all about driving a super-fast car around an arena. There's no ball though. Instead there are a series of ramps, jumps, gates, boxes, and loop-de-loops. And you need to score points by pulling off tricks on them.

Your car drives forwards automatically. You control the direction it's going on. There's a brake too, and when you're airborne swiping in different directions will set you spinning or flipping about with gay abandon.

Each run you've got three challenges to complete. These vary from scoring a set amount of points, pulling off some tricks, or completing tracks that appear on the levels from time to time as glowing checkpoints.

Everything feels exciting, and the way the game is constantly changing your goals means that things rarely have a chance to get staid. Oh, and it looks really great as well. All neon and bright colours and blurry effects.

No it's not serious, and if you're looking for a racer you're better served looking elsewhere. But it's a huge amount of chaotic fun, and sometimes that's all you want from a mobile videogame.
