Alligator Race iPhone Review

Alligator Race may not look up to much, but it is actually a decent kids game that can provide a good distraction for a couple of hours. It may not set the world alight, and the graphical style may be too simple for some, but it is harmless and entertaining.

The game sees you take control of an alligator as he races down a river, attempting to avoid as many obstacles and to survive for as long as possible.

To do this, you simply tilt your device to avoid the items, such as boats and floating logs, and the alligator will swim left or right depending on the direction of tilt. There is a nice bonus scoring system where you have to time touching a red button to double the multiplier, or halve the multiplier by touching the green button. You have to try and get as far as you can, and then post your score to a local leaderboard, as well as the built-in online leaderboards through Game Center.

Here are the main features of the app, straight from the developer:Aligator Race screenshot

• Universal support for every device
• Game Center integration
• Local and Game Center leaderboards
• Game stats section
• Amazing accelerometer controls
• Background music and sound effects
• Personal player name option
• In-app mail for feedback
• Hidden Easter egg

The graphics are perhaps a little bit too simplistic for my taste, although the look is understandable as the game is really aimed at children. The online leaderboards are the main draw here, although I do like the fact that the developer has taken the time to include local scoring, as well as a nice stats screen.

The game is Retina enabled, and is also a universal app, perfectly playable on both iPhone and iPad.

The music and sound effects are OK, and overall I found the app to be a pretty enjoyable experience, and I am sure the younger ones will find it pretty addictive.

Overall, while Alligator Race may not be the greatest game for your iPhone, it certainly isn’t the worst, and it is also priced correctly. A fun and simple highscore chase, Alligator Race is worth a second look.

    looks like very colorful game

  2. I think this game is very cool. Its graphics may look very simple, but maybe its developer wanted it to look like a video game back in the 80s.
