Review from Robert Multan
It ain't no WipeOut, that's for sure But it's good for what it is. Fast-paced arcade racer with solid graphics. Good but not great, since it's missing The Prodigy and Orbital ;)
Wipeout 2013 -- frakkin' sweet! The primary thing that sets the Wipeout series apart from all other A-Grav racing games is the feel of the experience that comes from a raging sense of speed. This game seems to capture that really well, but needs a quadcore device. On a Samsung G4, its screamin' fast. On a Minix Neo X7, it's every bit as fast, but the game appears to lack support for the MOGA game controller, at least as far as the official driver. I have yet to test a 3rd party driver against it, but nowadays games across the board should be delivered with proper support for a unified gamepad API, so that regardless of the manufacturer, the user will get the same level of support for their hardware (much like Direct-Input for Direct-X does for Win32/64 based systems).
Better then repulze No auto fire! Yay! If only I can get control over the gas? ;) Update: I have been playing this game all day long! I love it! If you could fix the lag on the s3 that would be great. I don't have an S3 but I have a Chinese gaming tablet with the same exact specs. I would love to play this on high with physical controls. I also bought this on my iPad mini!
Major Control Issues The game looks great with a good sense of speed, but the controls are very buggy. I like to play games like this with left/right touch controls, but while this is an option in this particular game, you have to press a small button at the bottom instead of simply anywhere on that side of the screen. This wouldn't be so much of a problem except the [right] and [fire] buttons are too close together; every time you try and turn right the weapon fires. Sadly, the alternative control schemes are arguably worse on some devices. On mine, using the d-pad option, it was impossible to fire a weapon at all due to the button being cropped off the screen. Other problems include an overpowered machine gun (very common and almost impossible to dodge, putting many race results down to luck) and randomly placed mines (not dropped by opponents).
Flashout 3D - excellent Wipeout clone Excellent Wipeout clone for all those ex PS1 gamers out there. Great graphics, tracks, features and music. Doesn't have the same level of ship control as Wipeout (e.g. no air brakes) but I guess that's down to the difference between an Android app and a dedicated games console and controller. Worth every 89 of those pennies! Enjoy.
Looks good, controls well but limited ship selection. Upgrades are pointless although it has good tracks they are also limited. Would be much better if you could change parts of the ships to make them more unique. Also would be nice to have an actual. Choice when it comes to your weapons and shields . Also where is this story of why you are racing? Could be a great game if more time was put into it maybe go a little mega race or f zero with it?
Mindblowing Absolutely the best mobile app racing game I've played! Addictive gameplay and awesome graphics (and I'm only running it on medium physics, on my GS3). The controls do take a bit to get used to; I found it easier lowering the Accelerometer to about 65%. I honestly can't understand how that other 'flying racing' game has a better rating than this. Flashout trumps it IMO. And for 2 dollars, seriously it's so worth it, whether you're a Wipeout fan or not. If only it had multiplayer...
