This game is very addictive, making yourself constantly wanting to beat your last score. Nice simple graphics and ease of use. Why only 3 stars? Because it's missing the option of racing against friends in real time like at the Science Museum. You only race against their ghost and only one of them at a time. There should be an option to play over Chromecast with the whole family. Another issue is when designing your rover, the buttons are in the way so it's difficult to utilise the whole screen.

Rugged Rovers is a great game. Very creative, and fun to play with your family and friends. But I've discovered this glitch; if you trace around the motor, the cover your rover in the biggest wheels possible it will go much faster than ordinary rovers and will become bouncy. But on the whole I think this game is great 😀😀😀

Very fun but controlling the rovers I think will make this the perfect game. Being able to stop it and to get it going again when ever you want. Rather than it just going pedel to the metal 24/7
