Reckless Getaway

Today's android app of the day is Reckless Getaway.


There are plenty of great free racing games available for Android devices, consoles or even playable online. In such a crowded market it can be hard to rise above the masses, but Reckless Getaway manages to do so and places itself in pole position as one of the best racing games available for mobile devices. 

The game play is easy to pick up, but surprisingly challenging as the game progresses. In short, you are on the run from the police - your task - to getaway. In the process you earn start for being 'reckless'. This can include destroying other vehicles, driving on the wrong side of the road, performing stunts, smashing through barricades etc. There are also actual 'stars' scattered around the track to collect, and a variety of power ups that can be collected. 

At the end of every track, presuming you have managed to escape, you are given a star rating, which is used to unlock future levels. Everything here fits together perfectly. The graphics are excellent, the sound is great and the game play is amazing. There is a real sense of chaos excitement as you tear down a highway, slamming into other vehicles and using boosts and power ups - the levels really do feel alive, and there are plenty of them - 17 in fact, each unique. 

On top of the chaos and excitement, there is a real sense of  challenge as you progress, with the police becoming more difficult to evade and those ever elusive stars becoming more difficult to achieve. This will keep gamers hooked for days, especially when you throw in extra features like online leader boards and some of the best controls I've experiences for a mobile racer. 

In short, Reckless Racer just 'works' and should be a first install on any android device. 








In the words of the developer:

Who’d a thought robbing the bank would be the easy part?
Now comes the real challenge - to escape with your hard-earned loot and the fuzz hot at your heels!

Weave in and out of oncoming traffic; dodge, outrun or ram pursuing police cars and just generally crash, smash and thrash your way through 16 varied levels.
Let’s face it: beating someone across the finishing line is a lot of fun, but not nearly as much fun as tackling them into oncoming traffic to watch chaos ensue
The Developers behind Reckless Racing now brings you Reckless Getaway!
FEATURES:
- 16 eye-popping, visually amazing Tracks
- Simple and effective controls
- Unlock new tracks by earning your rates
- Global leaderboards, show you're better than the rest

Wish - shopping made fun - and easy - and cheap!

These days sites like Amazon or eBay make buying and selling online quick and easy. Unfortunately, sometimes the sheer breadth of products available (everything on earth!) makes it difficult to impulse buy or get the same experience one haves when wandering around a shop or past windows. Luckily, apps now exist to replicate that experience.

The best of the lot is Wish - which has the tagline 'shopping made fun' which could not be more true! When opening the app there are lots of categories to choose from, allowing you to pick the type of products you want to browse and going from there. Buying and checking out is only ever a few clicks away and if you are not careful you will very quickly load up on more products than you need!

I've launched sites that help out with buying cheap gadgets in the past, and it was heavily inspired by apps such as Wish which really allow someone to sit back and take pleasure in the shopping experience again! Download Wish now!

Cosmic Cow

Today's app of the day is Cosmic Cow.



"Endless" games are very in vogue at the moment, whether it be endless running, endless jumping or endless flapping, there are plenty of ways to get unlimited, and challenging gaming fixes. That doesn't mean that there aren't great new games being created in the genre, with Cosmic Cow being one such example.

In essence, Cosmic Cow combines two great styles of game play, one being a side scrolling endless-type game, and the other being the classic side scrolling space ship shooter, popularised in numerous incarnations on 8 and 16 bit consoles of decades past. As a "cosmic cow" (can't help but love it!), the player has to navigate through space, shooting or dodging asteroids and other attacking spaceships. The cow can collect a variety of objects to earn points - though mainly interesting foods that just happen to be floating through space. As points are accumulated, the player can also collect coins to spend on a v…
