I recently bought this game of I-tunes for the discounted price of £3.49 and must say it is great value.
The game is really good fun and good graphics compared to many other games I have played on my I-pod.
The idea of the game is to race through a total of 12 different levels using the motion detectors to steer. There are number of obstacles you have to avoid throughout this game, in order to do this you must tap the screen once. There are also several power ups and weapons you can pick up, ranging from guns and bombs to speed boosts. In total there are 8 weapons and your cart can also be used to ram others of the track.
The game has a good story line and runs very smoothly and has never crashed or let me down.
In conclusions I would recommend this I-pod application to all those people who have previously played crash bandicoot games and enjoyed them. It is also suitable for racing game enthusiasts.
When the App Store first went online, I rushed to download all the free apps that caught my attention. Then I came across some users reporting that Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D was only available in the UK store and that it was pretty good. So I splashed out the £5.99 for it... and was it worth the money? Well, I have to say a resounding YES.
The graphics are amazing, on par if not a little punchier than the games dedicated Nintendo DS. The game play is very smooth, with good animations and special effects. There is a little bit of slow redraw in the distance, but it is not distracting. The controls are superb too. You tilt forwards to speed up, backwards to slow down and left/right to steer. Skids are performed by touching the screen whilsts turning and power-ups are planted onto your opponents by tapping the appropriate icon. On the sound front it is amazing, very cool music and in-game sound. It also shows that the iPhone 3G has greatly improved speakers, having played this on both the new unit and the first generation.
This games works on the Apple iPhone and iPod touch and shows just how capable the little device is from Apple... it is well worth the £5.99 asking price.
