It’s a little difficult sometimes to come by a good game for your mobile device. There are thousands upon thousands to choose from, and each has their own little fan base. And as if trying to find that good game wasn’t hard enough in the first place, to counterbalance every positive review of a game, there seems to be a person who wants nothing more in life but to destroy the lives of the developers. Then that leads to a comments section of opinions that eventually get on the topic of the weight of someone’s mother, or how they showed her a good time through amorous activities. Well here is an app review that I promise will have no more than 3 insults to mother figures.
On a recent trip back from Vegas I found myself with extra time in the airport terminal. With the overwhelming desire to not move at all, or really do much of anything because of how exhausted I was as a consequence of the awesome time I showed your mother last night (that’s 1), I browsed the app store. Angry Birds Star Wars just wasn’t cutting it for me anymore, so I needed a new game. I then came across Hill Climb Racing.
We’ve all seen the premise of this game before. You control a little car or bike and have to get over hills to get the furthest distance, and there are jumps and bumps that make the game a little more difficult as the level progresses. Pretty simple, I’ve always liked these games, and with very little reading of the description, I decided to give it a shot.
I opened the app and there was a lot more than I expected. There were 8 vehicles to choose from, and 10 different levels. Only one of each are unlocked when you first start the game, and the rest can be bought with coins collected during gameplay. Coins can also be used to upgrade your vehicle.
After a couple of games and upgrades, I looked to see how much other vehicles and levels cost, they start off low and get larger by how well the vehicle performs or the craziness of the level. I scrolled to the end of the vehicle list and was shocked at the price. 1,000,000 coins for a freakin’ snow mobile?! Who the hell would save up that much to get a new vehicle? That’s outrageous. But, as it turns out, it wasn’t that difficult to save, because I was addicted to this game like your mom is addicted to the 15 piece extra crispy bucket (BAM! That’s two).
There is something just incredibly addicting about this game. You drive your vehicle over these hills to collect coins, get extra points for jumping, doing flips, and even for certain crashes, and also get a little extra for traveling certain distances. There’s just so much room for activities!
Some vehicles are made for specific levels, but of course they can be used for other levels. For instance, there is a racecar that works well with levels that need to keep a car grounded, while the monster truck will help you bounce halfway up a mountain. Everyone has their own tactic or strategy on levels, and they all seem to be thoroughly entertaining.
Hill Climb Racing is a definite must play for any gamer on the go. Even if you’re not traveling, you’ll find yourself playing on the couch at home when the controller to your favorite console is just too far away. This simple game will provide hours and hours of yelling at your screen entertainment, and to top it all off, it’s freakin’ FREE! Can’t beat that. So, next time you’re browsing the app store looking for something to pass the time, do a direct search for Hill Climb Racing and just start playing.
Oh and one last thing, your mother was a hamster, and your father smelled of elderberries. That’s three, and a father one to to top it off.
G.I.A. Rating: 10/10
