Will You Break And Desist In Phase Two Of Futuristic Racing Game Repulze?
The futuristic racing game Repulze, which is developed by the same team behind Reckless Racing, has just entered phase two. In his review of the game, posted shortly after its launch in the App Store early last month, my colleague Ramy praised Repulze's stunning sights and sounds. However, he noted that its time-trial gameplay could get repetitive pretty quickly. The game's initial version, dubbed Phase One: Re-boot Camp, challenges you to go as fast as you can aboard a hypersonic Repulze hovercraft across nine gravity-defying tracks. Now, a new update has been pushed to the game, effectively activating Repulze's Phase Two: Break and Desist. In Phase Two, having been exiled to the outskirts of outer space, you might as well hone your skills for the forthcoming racing showdown. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. And to help you do so, the new phase provides you with seven "sanity-defying" new tracks set in a new industrial wasteland theme. It also includes new challenge types, magnetic fields, toolkits, and a Power Ripper upgrade. In addition, Phase Two introduces ghost race recording and playback, first-person bonnet camera view, and a slide-to-steer control option. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later, the newly "re-phased" Repulze is available in the App Store for $1.99. Repulze's Phase Three, codenamed Backlash, is set to be released soon. Apparently, it's built around the futuristic adage that says, "Payback is best served with rockets.
