If you enjoy endless runners or racing games you may want to check out Bumpy Road. The game combines both genres into one package, but instead of controlling the car you get to manipulate the ground below it in order to avoid obstacles. Bumpy Road is a very colorful title with a lot of visual charm. The backgrounds are very well detailed and range from windmills to city landscapes. The game even has a cute little love story that you follow as you race across the landscapes. You control a couple in love who decided to go on a road trip like they used to when they were younger; they want to collect the memories of their past. This is a platforming arcade game at heart and there are various things to run into and collect as the couple keep advancing through a level. It is also not based on completing a level, but getting as far as possible in it. Here are some additional features to look for (from the app description):
Bumpy Road is now available on the App Store as a universal app for $2.99.
- A new and unique control method - Use the touchscreen to modify the ground and push the characters around.
- A feel good arcade game with a moving story – Discover the life of a family as you find memories while you play.
- Travel as far as you can in ”Evergreen Ride” or beat your best time in ”Sunday Trip”. Then sit back and relax as you enjoy the story in ”Memory Lane”.
- All the bells and whistles – Universal app, retina display visuals, achievements and leaderboards on Game Center!
