Cro-Mag Rally is one of my favorite, and oldest, iPhone Games. It was one of the first games I downloaded for the iPhone and it has been a joy to play ever since. I'm not a hard-core gamer, so even a simple game can remain fun for months or years. Cro-Mag was unique when it was released because it was one of the first games to make excellent use of the accelerometer in the iPhone - translation, you steer by moving your iPhone. Pangea, developer of Cro-Mag Rally, has been developing Mac games for years and has equally latched on to the iPhone & iPad. They have been steadily updating Cro-Mag since it's release, fixing bugs and gameplay. 2.0 was released in September with lots of changes. The three best changes were: Support for Retina Display, Game Center and it's now a universal app - IT WORKS ON THE IPAD.
Of course Game Center didn't work on the iPad, until yesterday. They are now ready for iOS 4.2. Verzion 2.0 was released on November 11th, meaning that when you finally get the latest version of the iOS on your iPad you will immediately have the ability to play Cro-Mag Rally on-line with the world.
Currently you can get this fun little racing game for only $0.99! That's right, you can pick-up a racing game that allows you to play on both your iPhone and your iPad, race against your kids at home or friends around the world. You can race through worlds underwater, in a jungle, in a desert or even across China!
It's an arcade game with lots of history on the Mac, but it is fun and the graphics are very good. It's not RealRacing HD or even Asphalt 5, but if you have just a few minutes to spare - this is the racing game for you and your kids.
Pangea's Description of Cro-Mag Rally:
In Cro-Mag Rally you are a speed-hungry caveman named Brog who races through the Stone, Bronze, and Iron Ages in primitive vehicles such as the Geode Cruiser, Bone Buggy, Logmobile, Trojan Horse, and many others . Brog has at his disposal an arsenal of primitive weaponry ranging from Bone Bombs to Chinese Bottle Rockets and Heat Seeking Homing Pigeons. There are 9 different tracks to race on, and 11 different vehicles to drive.
Cro-Mag Rally is an incredibly diverse and entertaining racing game, and there is nothing else like it for the iPhone / iPod Touch! The game is visually stunning, has incredibly fun driving physics (you steer with the iPhone itself!), and is suitable for all ages.
New in version 2.0 is the ability to do multiplayer races over a 3G or WiFi network! Any Game Center compatible device running iOS 4.1 or later can race against friends or other players around the world!
