jAggy Race: Racing is Necessary, Gravity is Optional

jAggy Race iPhone App Review

Reviewed by Valerie Lauer

Strap in. It’s time to give traditional gravity the slip with jAggy Race, a fast-paced kart racer from new Swiss developer SevenOnly.

Concept & Gameplay:

jAggy Race is not just another runner or Need For Speed style racer. This game is unexpected, and a little different than anything you’ve played before.

It’s like your favorite slot car racing track from your childhood and Mario Kart had a baby, then that baby learned magic and created a world where gravity is relative. Then it put on a turbo booster and took off.

That’s what you’ll be doing. Utilizing on-screen controls you will accelerate, leap and put on the brakes, to work your way through some seriously sick tracks. 23 of them to be exact.

These tracks loop, double back and just when you think you’ve got them figured out, its time to drive backwards, leap over a gigantic circular saw or dodge some sheep that have taken up residence on your race course.

These 3D tracks are seriously complex, and a lot of fun. The better you drive the lower your time will be. Battle to beat your own best time, compete worldwide via Game Center and earn trophies to unlock special bonus levels that are seriously sweet.

Use that accelerator judiciously. Dangerous lasers and blades are waiting to nab unsuspecting Jaggy if you go too fast around turns, or you may end up drifting through the air quite off course.

Gameplay is straight forward, engaging and just plain fun. You’re going to love jAggy Race.

Graphics & Design:

Each track in jAggy Race is a work of art. Graphics are bright, clear and cartoon-like. The 3D rendering can be a little dizzying at first, especially since the course twists and turns, and the faster you go the faster it changes.

The star driver, Jaggy, is well rendered, too. He glances over his shoulder when you go in reverse, and even blinks occasionally.

As an added perk the on screen controls are super easy to use, and can be adjusted by accessing the app’s settings menu. Custom controls are always appreciated, giving jAggy Race even more street cred.

Value:

This Hot Wheels fantasy gone wild is going to run you $.99 from iTunes. No wonder jAggy Race has met with rave reviews.

This app is seriously fun, and has a sweet price tag. You can’t beat this app for high quality content, addictive gameplay and a unique approach to a tried and true genre. jAggy Race is definitely an app you want to have on your iOS device.
