Most of the non-tool apps on our iPhones are designed to pass away the time. Say what you will about timewaster games, but we think they’re pretty interesting. Some are even more challenging than they first appear. That’s the pleasant surprise we experienced we decided to check out Racing Tyres Space. It’s an app straight from the mind of creative French developer Oliver Parra, and it has a lot of interesting features to check out.
The music is very fast paced in this game, and you’ll find it a constant companion as you work through the levels. The developer put an incredible amount of thought into making everything exist in harmony with everything else. Not only do you have two planets to choose from in the paid version of the game (the Lite version gives you one track on one planet instead of the full twenty tracks), but you have a physics engine that has a strong effect on your performance. As you go through the game, you’ll unlock three wheels in three different colors. There is a blue one, a yellow-brown one, and a red one, and they all have different characteristics. Did we mention that weight is indeed a factor, along with gravity? You have resistance to deal with as you try to clear loops and make drops perfectly to get from one track to the next.
Currently in the game there are two planets unlocked: Onyx and Sappheiros. The end of Sappheiros has a pretty tough level, and it’s currently impossible to beat. The reason for this is that the end of Sappheiros is actually a gateway to the third planet that is currently locked. When will it open? There’s only one way to find out: playing the game. You start with the first planet and the first track, and then work your way up. Be prepared to spend some time getting the hang of it, because nothing is exactly what it seems in this game. Some of it will be obvious, but other things will become clearer after you’ve actually played the game. `
If you purchase the game at 99 cents, the new levels will be automatically available to you. This is a good thing that will keep you playing for many weeks and even months to come. Check out Racing Tyres Space today!
