Racing games and the iPhone is a match made in heaven. The in-built tilt technology lends itself perfectly to manoeuvring the car as it mimics a steering wheel. Unlike many other racing games the developers of Fast and Furious really seemed to have nailed the interface between the game controls and the iPhone’s accelerometer. There is no ridiculous over steer or need to tilt your iPhone too far in one direction to make the car budge an inch. Sensitivity is often a problem with racing games but Fast and Furious has been perfectly calibrated to provide players with a game that feels realistic but with an element of control in place.
Hot Rod Game is Smoking
There’s nothing worse than clipping a wall or running over a patch of grass and losing control right at a critical moment in a race, so being given a degree of lenience when it comes to minor tings like this makes the game much more enjoyable. There are a number of ways to score points throughout the race including overtaking, drifting through turns and landing safely over any jumps. All the cars are supped-up with nitrous oxide (NOS) and if you use it wisely it can give you a timely boost and gain you a few extra yards on your race rivals. The game also centres on the idea of “pink slipping” or winning your rivals rides.
You have the option of staking your car against one of the other racers’ cars and if you win then you get their car, if not then you can kiss goodbye to your old faithful. The range of cars is good and the graphics are very well crafted. The controls are easy to use: touch the screen to brake, tilt to turn either left or right and don’t touch the screen accelerate. Overall, the game is one of the most exciting and easiest to operate and it without doubt in pole position in terms of the other racing games available. You’ll want to revisit the game time and time again and, in my opinion, it will be one of the best purchases you’ll make for your iPhone.
