Pako - Car Chase Simulator - App Review

Pako - Car Chase Simulator for Android, iPhone and iPad is a simple replay game with a fun and irreverent premise: outrun the cops in your pixel car; go fast, go hard, or go to jail. This one is good fun and comes with the added bonus of no jail time.

Pako - Car Chase Simulator presents in landscape mode to deliver an addictive replay game. Your mission, is to drive fast, burn rubber and try not to get caught by the coppers. The game features several locales to drive and play, so there’s plenty to keep you busy here. The app presents itself from an aerial point of view, looking down on the action below. You start off in a shopping mall parking lot. It’s after hours, so the lot is mostly empty, but still peppered with a few cars, trees and medians to avoid. The accelerator is automatic, and seems to be locked down tight, so you’re burning rubber right from the word go. Just do your best to steer and hang on tight. Burn doughnuts, outrun the coppers and try not to go boom. Oh, and by the way, you will go boom often, but hey, that’s just part of the fun and your insurance premiums won’t go up as a result, so make the most of it.

The controls use directional arrows on either side of your screen to steer and they were highly accurate, though a tad confusing when you turn around and start driving in the opposite direction, but I think confusion is just part of the fun here. The graphics feature a blocky looking environment by design and were colorful and pleasing to the eye. The animation is quite smooth and renders nicely, with satisfying plumes of smoke and skid marks as you burn rubber. The sounds are the perfect complement, accentuating the play without stealing focus.  

Pako - Car Chase Simulator is loads of fun and you’ll be hitting that replay button often. I think this one is worth the modest purchase price and is certainly entertaining.
