Wipeout by Activision Publishing, Inc has only been in the app store for about a week and has already reach the tippy top of the charts as the number one top paid app in the app store! Over 2,600 users have already rated Wipeout with 4.5 out of 5 stars! Having such high of a rating by thousands of users in such a short time, this app has to be a hit! If you have always wished you were a contestant on ABC’s hit TV show, Wipeout, here’s your chance to participate! Run, jump and dive through incredible challenges!
When you first download Wipeout, you can try out the “Time Trial”. This option actually lets you audition as a contestant, which is a pretty fun feature. If you just want to get down to business and immediately begin your challenges, you can do that, too. You’ll start out in season 1 with a challenge called “Time to Wipeout”. You’ll have to begin with the character they give you, because the other characters cost coins or dollars, and when you first begin playing Wipeout, you have none of either. Once you get some, you do have the option to purchase a different character.
As for the challenges, they are exactly like the show! I can’t believe how fun and realistic this game is! The graphics are vivid, and the colors are bright – a perfect combination to create a beautiful scene! My first challenge was easy enough for me to learn the controls and understand the gameplay. By the second challenge, I knew just how the game worked. The first challenge included jumping from obstacle to obstacle, trying not to fall in the water below them. All the while, dodging obstacles that were swinging from side to side, trying not to get knocked down. Getting knocked down doesn’t eliminate you from that challenge; it just slows down your time – unless it knocks you into the water, then you are eliminated. You time affects your score, so time is definitely of the essence. Wipeout is a chance to finally participate as a contestant in the challenges you see on the show! It’s realistic, challenging, fun and addicting! Worth every penny of the two bucks it costs to download it!
