    Cro-Mag Ralley

    Category: Racing Games
    Developer: Pangea Software
    Price: $9.99 US
    Size: 58.3 mb

    In Cro-Mag Rally you are a speed-hungry caveman named Brog who races through the Stone, Bronze, and Iron Ages in primitive vehicles such as the Geode Cruiser, Bone Buggy, Logmobile, Trojan Horse, and many others . Brog has at his disposal an arsenal of primitive weaponry ranging from Bone Bombs to Chinese Bottle Rockets and Heat Seeking Homing Pigeons. There are 9 different tracks to race on, and 11 different vehicles to drive.
    Cro-Mag Ralley starts off with the main screen. Settings has info to change sound and sensitivity and all that.

    So when you hit play game you come to a screen where you can pick Race or Gather.

    Race is a normal race.
    While Gather you must try and gather all of the arrow heads while racing.

    Next you pick your map. Maps range from a desert, to medieval times, to ATLANTIS (very fun map).

    Soo once done picking a map you come to a menu where you select your car. The cars range from a Rib Cage to a Trojan Horse to an Obelisk.

    From there you can pick whether you want to be a "Brog" (guy) or a "Grag" (girl).

    So your starting the race.
    The powerups in the levels include:

    Inventory Powerups:
    Bone Bomb
    Oil SLick
    Nitro
    Homing Pigeon
    Bottle Rocket
    Roman Candle
    Torpedo
    Freeze Bomb
    Land mine

    Immediate Powerups:
    Sticky Tires- Good traction
    Super Suspension- Reduces ricochets off objects
    Invisibility- In multiplayer modes it makes you invisible.

    My screenshots werent working so these will have to do

    Id give it a 3/5 stars.

    Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart is better in my view.

    A few problems i forgot to mention:

    Another thing i forgot to add was that you have to press forward to go and back to revers on the left side.

    IT can get somewhat annoying.
    And also there are sometimes where you can go around a turn and lose control (depending on the kart) and get turned around.
    Also you can easily go up the walls of the tracks which can sometimes cause some troubles.

    Thanks for the well-written review. I'm still considering this game, as I can't afford to buy up every $10 game on the market.

    Awesome review Tipii, i agree with you though Crash Nitro Kart is alot better, i'm loving this game! I think Crash is better than SMB too, just my opinion.

    Also take into account ,everyone, that these are just launch apps! These are the ones tested on 2.0 (which is basically a beta in itself because there will likely be 2.0.1 or 2.1) and they're already impressing us!
