Watching this show on television, we have all yelled some advices or applauses for the contestants. Now, its time for you take the stage because the official Wipeout app has hit the iTunes Store.
The game replicates the exact scenario of the show where you pass through various hurdles to reach the finish line. There are six maps to be unlocked and each one has the authentic Wipeout feel. Each map has three rounds – Qualifier, Knock-out and the Wipeout Zone. Qualify, KO others and finish quick in the finale to take the money home.
Controls include move and crouch on one side with jump on the other. Just like the original, outrageously large number of innovative and unseen obstacles are here to throw you into the chill water. Moving platforms, slipping piles, giant boxer hands, swinging loops, bouncing balls, rotating boards and falling pumpkins are a few that deserves special mention.
Miss-time a jump or forget to duck and you are bumped into the rubbery ground. Each hit you take is represented by an ‘ouch‘ or a ‘bonk‘ or ‘faceplant‘ and you can’t help smiling. As you take more hits, you lose precious time, but unlike you might think, the hits add to your score. A checkpoint forms after each obstacle, just in case you fail the next. Whenever you are sent for a dip, an awesome slow-motion replay reels in and you can laugh at your fall.
The animations are great and so are the adequate sound effects; yet, I would have loved a live commentary just like the show. New characters, gadgets and utilities can be unlocked with cash and helps to keep things different.
Now that I’m glued to this game for hours, my only concern is what I would do after the six arenas are finished. I can always use the time-trial feature to improve my scores but I would rather wish for more maps.
Would I Buy Again:Looking forward for the next update
Who Is It For:Those who want action without guns or blood!
What I Like:The entire package is worth appreciation
What I Don't Like:None so far
Final Statement:Easily, one of my favorites!
