Along with Disney, the Cartoon Network pretty much owns the next generation of children. Formula Cartoon: Touch ‘N’ Go seems definitely geared towards the male gender but it’s a fun racing game for anyone of a young age. And it’s a good way for Cartoon Network to promote its original line-up to boot.
You can be a characte from either Adventure Time, The Regular Show, Ben 10 Omniverse or The Amazing World of Gumball. If you don’t know what any of these shows are, you’re too old to play this game.
Since they know their target audience, the game is pretty simple to use. You race around a track of your choosing (2D mostly but the movement is very smooth). The design is fun and to keep racing all you have to do is keep tapping a button to speed up (or let go to slow down). You don’t even have to steer. Even the simplest of children could play.
Sadly, the game is somewhat unresponsive at times when you tap the screen (there are still some bugs that need to be worked out). I’m not that keen personally on needing to purchase additional abilities such as freezing your opponents or additional racing tracks. However, it is possible to obtain these items by winning races so game enhancements do not necessarily have to max out your credit card.
All this said, Formula Cartoon is a decent racing app for a dollar. Granted, I’ve seen better but it’s simple enough to provide fun for any child.
Would I Buy Again:For myself? No. For my kid? Sure.
Who Is It For:Children that like or might like Cartoon Network.
What I Like:Good graphics. Fun game.
What I Don't Like:Slightly buggy. Very limited choices for a paid game.
Final Statement:A good game, but needs work.
Race on tracks inspired by your favorite Cartoon Network shows, like Adventure Time, Ben 10 and The Amazing World of Gumball.
Play head-to-head multiplayer on the same device. Challenge a friend on your iPhone or iPod touch, or race up to four players on your iPad.
Race as your favorite Cartoon Network characters, like Ben 10, Finn, Gumball, Mordecai and more. Every character has a unique set of wheels, from Mordecai's golf cart to Gumball's tricked-out mop bucket to Finn's righteous dragster.
Earn upgrades to make your ride even sweeter, and use power ups to crush your competition!
Simple, one-button controls make this a racing game that's easy to pick up, but hard to put down. Just touch to go, and release to slow down. But don't take those curves too fast, or you might wipe out!
