    Playman Track and Field Review
    Daconcerror

    I know that this game has been out on the appstore for a while now but I realise that this is still a very popular game and so I’ve decided to write a review on it.

    Playman track and field is considered to be one of the top end all round sports games out there. With three different modes, challenge, multiplayer and survival mode, you will be left playing for hours. In this game you play as Playman and compete against twelve other competitors to win the two tournaments, amateur and Pro. When these have been completed, but believe me these aren’t easy, you then unlock a “Survival” mode in which you compete in rounds until you get beaten in an event.
    This game has one of the elements that keeps you playing it and at the price of 59 pence it will hardly be a bad investment.


    Controls
    The controls for this game are ridiculously simple and this is one of the things that keeps you playing. Each event basically involved tapping the green buttons as they appear and then using the orange buttons to jump/pole vault/throw the javelin. With the exception of the hurdles where all you need to know is how to count to three.

    Added bonuses
    If your device runs out of battery or you exit in the middle of an event or tournament it will automatically save your game.

    The graphics are pretty good for a sports game like this

    Complaints
    Certain aspects of the game are extremely hard, like the javelin event

    When tapping the green buttons it will sometimes not register or even register on the other side of the screen.

    Ratings

    Controls: 5, they are so simple a monkey could do it
    Amusement: 4, Due to the harder aspects of the game, it becomes annoying if you keep getting knocked out of your tournament on the same event
    Graphics: 4, it could be improved in some areas, but for a sports game it’s not bad
    Repeatability: 5*, this game is ridiculously addictive

    i enjoy this game, but it needs updates.
    i can set a humanly impossible world record in a couple events and then not even be close to beating the eskimo in the javelin with almost perfect shots.
