  • Crash Bandicoot Nitro Cart for iPhone and iPod Touch (App Store UK) Crash Bandicoot has been one of my all time favourite games and characters since childhood
  • For a price of £3.49 its pretty damn well priced considering its popularity etc. On the other hand Game play is OK but it's not brilliant, there is some graphic glitches along the way, and with not very smooth transition (seems short and jumpy at some points) having said that the overall experience is not all that bad, after all the App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch is reasonably new, so nothing can be expected to be perfect at this stage

      Crash Bandicoot Nitro Cart for iPhone and iPod Touch (App Store UK)

      Crash Bandicoot has been one of my all time favourite games and characters since childhood. I have had to try out all the different games around different gaming platforms. And that includes trying the newish Nitro Cart game for iPhone and iPod Touch. In short it’s a just like Mario Kart for the DS and Wii but instead of Mario and Luigi its Crash and Cortex! Honestly it’s just like spinoff on one of perhaps the most popular racing games on multiple platforms.

      For a price of £3.49 its pretty damn well priced considering its popularity etc. On the other hand Game play is OK but it’s not brilliant, there is some graphic glitches along the way, and with not very smooth transition (seems short and jumpy at some points) having said that


      the overall experience is not all that bad, after all the App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch is reasonably new, so nothing can be expected to be perfect at this stage.

      The principles of the game are again very similar to the likes of Mario kart, if you have played the Mario kart titles, you will know what to expect with this game. You travel through stages trying to get as many points as you can, the closer you are to 1st place, and indeed if you are 1st place the more scoring points you get, and then obviously the character with the most points at the end wins the game/ tournament It is indeed fun when you have learned all the needed movements etc.

      There are no physical controls for the game, other than your fingers to select items on the main ...


      • menu, and then you hands to operate the accelerometer in the iPhone or iPod Touch. Somehow acceleration of the cars is automatic so you don’t need to do anything, I f you wanted to brake or reverse you simply just hold your fingers on the pressure points, which will be highlighted and shown to you during the game tutorial. And yes you guessed it, to move the direction of the car you move the iPhone/ iPod touch in exactly the way you want to go. With the accelerometer inside it is automatically able to interpret movements with retrospective to the angle its sitting (just like a spirit level) When you get to know the game a little better you will find that even you grandma will be easily able to pick up playing the game.

        From what I have seen of the game so

        far it doesn’t really go much more than moving around tournaments playing on different tracks. There is no wifi functionality so there is no way to play against other people neither in the room nor over the internet. There is one other gripe that I am getting, the application because it doesn’t run smoothly in some places I find that the application crashes, and I have to restart it should I want to continue playing it  Hopefully this is a common bug which has been identified, and then here’s hoping that a fix will come out to stop it from happening again.

        Other than that I have no other problems with the game, and it is a title worth getting for all those Crash Bandicoot fans! If there was to be future releases of the game I would love to see wifi play and indeed more levels please!
