Repulze for iOS is somewhat an intergalactic hovercraft race pretty much like the playstation hit WipeOut.

There is not much of a story line here; just get your shuttle and hit those pedals. Oops! Actually its auto-accelerate, so steering is pretty much all you do here. Take it from a man who has been there and done that; its hard, really hard! Use tap right or left to dash through the twists & turns and finish the laps first.

Unlike other racing games, this one doesn’t give it all to the no-hits theory. Your ride has a boost with polarities alternating between green and red. Keep track of the polarity and ride only through the corresponding grids and skip others. Pass through the opposite grid and its like you pulled your handbrake. Three correct polarities adds a boost (max of three) and a tap would activate it. They take you faster than ever till your surroundings starts blurring. Look out for protruding walls of tunnels to avoid crash or you’ll lose precious time. Take minimum hits, pass through correct polarities & avoid others and you’ll do great.

The animations are the best and so is the techno background score. A time-reversal effect is called in whenever you crash and its breath-taking. Controls seemed too sensitive but the option to configure it does a great job. There are 9 track to unlock and 6 crafts to try out. With jaw dropping graphics and huge flexibility, it should be a great buy for hardcore race fans.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:Not until new tracks are available

Learning Curve:Medium

Who Is It For:Racing game fans

What I Like:The animations are spectacular

What I Don't Like:Controls are too sensitive

Final Statement:3, 2, 1 , Go!
