Review: Racer


Racer is a great pick up and play title that is right at home on the iPhone platform. As it’s name implies, this is a racing game where you must guide your racer through a constant onslaught of traffic for as long as possible.
Playing the game in landscape view, you have access to six lanes of traffic and must guide you car within these six lanes using the touch screen. The interface works well as your finger sits directly behind you vehicle and never really interferes with your view.

Make no mistake, this game is all about the high score. There are not multiple levels, and the games variety consists of a small handful of colors for your car. There are both online and local leaderboards. Fans of games like minigore and icopter should be right at home here.
The overall aesthetic is really nice, the graphics have a cell shaded look and run very smooth. For $0.99 I can easily recommend this game, and there is now a lite version so you can try it out first. Score: 4/5
