Week 5 Featured App: Cubed Rally Redline
Cubed Rally Redline, developed by Jared Bailey and introduced to the App Store as a sequel to Cubed Rally Racer in November of 2012 is a unique endless racer with a great retro soundtrack, innovative steering mechanics, and spot-on graphics. This free app is available for the iPhone and iPad (see bottom for all compatible devices)
The gameplay itself is simple but addictive and will have you racing around the 8-bit track with lane based steering collecting gas/boost cans trying to get the best time and score. The randomly generated tracks are challenging and exciting. The controls are very similar to temple run; switching left and right avoiding neat obstacles like cows, trees, oil drums, and other barriers
Overall, this game has great 8-bit retro graphics and a sweet soundtrack. The design and gameplay is well executed. Cubed Rally Redline is by far our favorite arcade lane based racer and makes the cut as our Week 5 Featured App.
