Those who love racing games will probably want to pick up Novocortex’s free iPhone app, Endless Racing Game. It is just a straight-out racing game, but the name is a bit of a misnomer for those who don’t intend to play the game with other people.
There are two modes: Single Player and Multiplayer. The game ends in 60 seconds if you’re in Single Player mode; it is only endless if you’re in Multiplayer mode (connected to another iPhone by way of Bluetooth). Driving instructions are simple, and mirror driving a real car: tap left for braking, right for accelerating, and steer by using the iPhone’s accelerometer and moving the iPhone around. You can drive on both sides of the road, but watch out for oncoming/ongoing traffic…and ducks. Yes, brake for the ducks, please. In Multiplayer mode, the car will jump from iPhone to iPhone, building an endless track to race upon.
This game is free because it is sponsored by a Dutch online insurance company. The game is pretty much ad-free, though. The only time we see their name is when the car crashes, and the game announces that the insurance company will repay the purchase price of your car. Cute, and a good way of advertising. And believe it, you will crash the first few times playing this game. The controls and the physics are excellent–no lagging when tapping to accelerate or brake, and the car is sensitive to every tilt–but if you don’t have a good reaction time, this game will be hard for you to finish. In keeping with the realism of the controls and graphics, the sound effects are also indicative of a drive…especially of a crash. All in all, Endless Racing Game is a solid game app that’ll be challenging enough to try more than once.
