My app of the week goes to Driver this week, and i must say what a game! To be honest at first i wasnt really interested as i thought it would just be a terrible port of a classic, oh how wrong i was. If it was not for the free version i would not have got my £2.99 out to buy it, as it really just shows how good it is.
The graphics amazed me, it took me back to my playstation days of being amazed of the graphics then. They are almost identical maybe just a few less cars on the roads, but still includes day and night mode. Within the graphics are all the video’s which are well put together but i cannot remember if they are from the original
The controls are also impressive, with the car handling great and being easy to control. If im going to really try hard to find something wrong i would say that the handbrake and the burnout buttons are a bit close to left and right and you find yourself sometimes pressing both, but i think this is deliberate so it makes it easier to handbrake round corners.
It also has incredible depth with 4 cities to drive round in and do your missions. If you dont feel like doing your missions then you can just select take a ride and drive for as long as you like
Hopefully this is a show of things to come, hats off to gameloft as they have done and incredible job. This is a must buy for any iPhone/iPod gamer!
App Of The Week
My pick for this week is Cartoon Wars-Gunner, just for the utter coolness of this game. Game starts simple, pick your weapon and start going through the stages deafeating all opponents on the way. The early levels start with like 30 enemies which get more and more. With all these kills you get rewarded with gold which allows you to upgrade and buy new weapons. Now this was the bit i didnt find very clear, i was waiting to unlock a gun until i realised you had to click on the lock icon at the bottom and just buy them (you will understand when/if you play!)
Graphics wise its not immese but its perfect for a game of this nature, iphone easily copes with multiple enemies on the screen. The enemies get more and more varied the further you play.
For 59p its a bargain, highly recommend as i cannot not stop playing!
App of the Week – Paper Toss
This week i’ve chosen paper toss, which isnt a new game but its just so damn addictive. General idea of the game is to just toss the paper into the bin and to get the highest streak as possible…. easy you say, trust me its not. Give it a go a simple idea with loads of fun, in the app store for FREE!
