Proun+ Review

Review Engine Software By James Gilmour, 2 weeks, 5 days ago
Proun+ Review

Some racers are fast. Some are beautiful. Some have banging soundtracks and a selection of entertaining modes. But few have all these elements - especially on iOS. Against all the odds, however, Proun+ delivers all of the above strengths in a single, scintillatingly arty package. Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater loved it, and you find out why by checking out the video review above.…

Offroad Legends 2 Review

Review Dogbyte Games Kft. By James Gilmour, 2 weeks, 5 days ago
Offroad Legends 2 Review

Trials has a lot to answer for. Since the re-emergence of the popular 2.5D stunt racer there have been many similar games released to capitalise on its popularity. Offroad Legends took the Trials formula, swapped out the stunt bike for hefty 4x4 trucks, and added a few explosions for good measure. Now the sequel has arrived, and Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater has delivered his verdict. Check out of the video above to hear it.…

Tail Drift Review

We took to the skies in track-based plane racer Tail Drift to find out whether it would soar above the treetops, or come crashing down to earth. Check out our video review to find out what we thought.…

Battle Riders Review

Battle Riders Review

Racing sims can be a bit clinical. You'll often get endless menus filled with gear ratio sliders and engine tuning options, when all you really want to do is slam your figurative foot to the floor and burn some rubber. Battle Riders is an antidote to the serious-headed racers of the world, so much so that the Deathrace 3000-inspired vehicles you drive also have massive guns slapped on the side of them.  Question is, does it deliver the high octane, armour plated goods? Watch the…

Urban Trial Freestyle Review

Review Tate Multimedia S.A. By Alex Beech, 5 months, 1 week ago
Urban Trial Freestyle Review

Urban Trial Freestyle is a port of a Playstation game that offers you the chance to try the sport of motorcycle trials. Hopping onto a two-wheeled trickster, you must defy gravity to fly over all manner of outlandish urban areas, and make it to the end of each track. Set across an entire city, UTF is not limited to streets and apartment blocks. You must race over a huge range of obstacles as you cross underground lines, abandoned theme parks, and construction sites. Each setting looks…

Fluid SE Review

Review Radiangames By Alex Beech, 6 months, 1 week ago
Fluid SE Review

Fluid SE has you constantly on the brink of anger. It sets you the simple goal of collecting a handful of glowing orbs from around its stylish dark arenas but adds time pressures to create a tantalising challenge. A responsive virtual stick ensures there are no surprises to Fluid's controls while you guide your creature around the levels. Where the complexity lies, however, is in the exactness of these controls, with the tiniest movement of your finger changing your avatar’s cou…

dEXTRIS Review

Review Chaotic Box By Alex Beech, 7 months, 1 week ago
dEXTRIS Review

Dextris is twitch gaming distilled down to its purest form. Controlling two neon coloured blocks in unison, your simple task is to dodge left and right as you rocket endlessly upwards through its vertically-scrolling course. By default, the pink and blue squares you command sit happily in the middle of the screen. Holding the right side of the screen causes both blocks to shoot rapidly to the right and grind their way up the wall. Hold the left side, and you'll get the opposite result…

Unpossible Review

Review Acceleroto By Alex Beech, 8 months ago
Unpossible Review

With the endless genre ever expanding, Unpossible feels like a natural next step. Its fast paced twitch 3D gameplay attaches you to a tube floating in space and proceeds to fling you forward along its twisting length. At times, it feels like a first-person Super Hexagon, forcing you to rotate around a circular core to dodge past various neon blue obstacles. Fighting for good positioning around the tube’s circumference is vital as you shot along Unpossible’s courses, as the…

Trials Frontier Review

Review Ubisoft By Alex Beech, 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Trials Frontier Review

Trials Frontier wastes no time getting you into the action. There’s no title screen as you load the app - instead, the game begins with an onscreen prompt showing you how to start your engine. Before we'd even seen the title card, we were scudding along the 2.5D path towards an explosive finale. The game's first three tracks lay out all the controls. Your right thumb controls acceleration, while your left thumb manipulates your rider’s center of gravity, letting you j…

Loco Motors Review

Review Minority Media Inc. By Alex Beech, 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Loco Motors Review

Loco Motors is a car-construction puzzle game that fully embraces the wackiness of its own premise. The aim is to build cars to complete races and challenges, with the game putting very few limits one what you can construct. This proves as much as a curse as it is a blessin,g as, while you struggle with the game’s various physics based puzzles, you constantly feel like you might be missing a more elegant solution. Each map has six challenges, and successfully solving each of the…

FLASHOUT 2 Review

Review Jujubee By Alex Beech, 8 months, 3 weeks ago
FLASHOUT 2 Review

If you are going to copy something, copy the best. We have to assume that is what Jujubee was thinking when it developed Flashout 2. Generously, you could think of it as an homage to Sony’s WipEout series, but it sticks so closely to the source material - right down to the graphic design - that it simply feels like a pale imitation. Races take place on metallic tracks that loop high above futuristic cityscapes. Though each track is littered with boosts, weapons, and jumps, they…

Dudeski Review

Review Static Oceans Corp. By Alex Beech, 9 months, 1 week ago
Dudeski Review

If someone were to suggest skiing down Dudeski’s murderous Lord Shred Mountain in real life, you would think they were crazy. Thankfully, Static Ocean's latest game makes getting to the bottom of this slalom of death more about fun than fear. Touching either side of the screen steers your skier left and right, letting you weave through the game’s red and blue slalom gates. The game’s pixel-art graphics do a lot to communicate the correct path through these gates, wit…

Joe Danger Infinity Review

Review Hello Games By James Gilmour, 11 months, 2 weeks ago
Joe Danger Infinity Review

Joe Danger was one of those games that leapt effortlessly from the console realm, and managed to land perfectly on the mobile platform. The sequel, Joe Danger Infinity, reminds us precisely why we loved the first game, and gives us a generous selection of meticulously designed levels, colourful characters, and new vehicles to discover. Rather than assuming control of Joe himself, the sequel has you taking charge of a Joe Danger action figure. Given his diminutive proportions, the full…

Jet Car Stunts 2 Review

Review True Axis By James Gilmour, 11 months, 2 weeks ago
Jet Car Stunts 2 Review

While there's no shortage of racers on the App Store, there aren't many which can claim to be as downright brutal as Jet Car Stunts 2. Like its 2009 predecessor, it's a game about precision. In fact, almost every other aspect of Jet Car Stunts 2 seems to have been streamlined to force players to zero-in on the game's unapologetically raw racing core. The visuals are clean, crisp, and simple, serving only to give you a strip of virtual tarmac to aim for. There is no background music, j…

F1™ Challenge Review

F1™ Challenge Review

Formula 1 is all about precision. Brake too late going into corner or accelerate too quickly coming out of one, and your championship hopes can be drowned in a pool of your opponent's victory champagne. Perhaps that's why The Codemaster's latest take on F1, a top-down arcade-style racer, feels a little strange. It presents you with a format usually reserved for skid-tastic, tyre-squealing follies like Micro Machines, and then asks you to control some of the fastest racing cars on the…
