Tiny Car is an upcoming iOS endless runner by Super Rock Games, a UK based developer that adds yet another unique flavor to the genre. The objective of the game is to navigate your Tiny car through crowded intersections without crashing. Each successful pass earns you points which can be used to purchase donuts required to unlock 8 different vehicles. Like many other games, players looking for a shortcut can buy donuts using real cash for quicker unlocks.
Interestingly, instead of tapping to make the car move or stop, the developers have adopted an unconventional approach by demanding players to tap and hold to make the car stop. Unhindered, the car will keep going unless it crashes which contributes to the overall challenge and enhances gameplay. If that isn’t enough players also need to be mindful of the fuel gauge so that fuel doesn’t run out. Swift moves would insure that you collect fuel available on intersections to keep going. What gives Tiny Car an even bigger edge is making use of a well crafted theme to which players can relate to. Its not like a ball you have to bounce off walls or make a square jump through a circle which make things boring after a little while.
Graphics look promising as the promo video boasts lego like objects and good color scheming. We think that adding limited fuel to the mix is a great idea but would like to see the fuel gauge to have a bit more emphasis and same goes for the fuel icon on intersections .The game could use a backing soundtrack and perhaps a little more variation in sound effects
All in all we think that the game looks promising and is surely worth a try and something to challenge your friends to!
