Quality 3D graphics, decent game play, controls via g meter
Too easy, very common, monotonous game play
SpeedX 3D Turbo for Android is a hyper speed sorta futuristic driving app, but without a car or vessel. This one plays with 3D perspectives to deliver some high octane fun. The play is modestly addictive, but won't hold your interest very long.
SpeedX 3D Turbo displays in landscape to reveal a geometric race track of sorts that travels through a colorful tube. The cylindrical roadway is populated with a square grid that whips by really fast to offer nice illusions of speed. Your mission, is to bob and weave through this vortex sorta track and avoid square and rectangular obstacles that appear in your path. The play is simple, straightforward and addictive, though perhaps a tad monotonous and repetitive too. You're going for distance here and trying to best your last score. This one will have you smashing that replay button hard.
The controls use your gizmo's tilt function to steer, which causes you to roll and corkscrew through this cylindrical track with dizzying effect. There's also a lone turbo button on the lower right, just in case this one feels too slow for ya. The graphics are blocky by design, with basic skeletal framing for all the geometric shapes, and some decent alternating colors to round out the visuals. The animation is simple, offering nice illusions of speed, though perhaps, still coming off a tad slow. The sounds, well, suck; the mute button is your friend.
SpeedX 3D Turbo is a decent, futuristic sorta racing game that's ideal for kids and gamers of all skill levels. I've seen this game done better, but this version is fun enough.
