What’s good about this game? It has great music.

2. Breakneck (Google Play)
Graphics: 4/5 Gameplay: 3/5 Replayability: 3/5 Enjoyability: 4/5
Overall Score: 14/20
This game is set on a planet’s surface. It is barren and desolate. The goal is to traverse the landscape with a spaceship and reach the finish line, without crashing into mountains, buildings, or other structures. Collect coins and upgrades along the way. Avoid pursuers from above; they will destroy your spaceship with lasers.
The game is played with touch controls. Press the right side of the screen to move right, and press the left side of the screen to move left. The only other move available is speed boosting, which requires pressing both sides of the screen to activate.
What’s good about this game? The music is awesome. If it gets too intense, you can change the music setting and listen to the ambient noise.
What’s wrong with this game? The game resets to the first level after crashing. There’s no saving, so the same level is played over and over again. There is cloud saving, but it requires a certain amount of items and a Facebook account.
3. Racer The Sun 3D (Google Play)
Graphics: 2/5 Gameplay: 2/5 Replayability: 3/5 Enjoyability: 2/5

This is a fast-paced, ground traversing game. The spaceship moves side to side with tilt-axis control or touch screen tapping. There’s an option for Bluetooth or Gamepad controllers. The goal is to avoid crashing into obstacles. If you last long enough, the terrain starts to change, and the obstacles become more challenging. Collect bonus items along the way.
What’s good about this game? The terrain changes. A field of stationary obstacles are replaced with obstacles that move up and down.
What’s wrong with this game? Too many advertisements after crashes.
