Publisher: fractiv—Price: $0.99—Lane Splitter is an arcade game that boasts an addicting game-play and stunning graphics. As a player on a motorcycle you will have to weave in and out of traffic trying to avoid the cars. You will start out with two characters, Jake and Ricky. Each character has a unique ability that makes each character interesting to play with, for example Jake (wheelie) and Ricky (full throttle). These features are staggering and the ability of each character makes the app have a great replay value since each character is unique.
This app has 6 characters, you start out with 2 and you may also buy the in-app purchase for $1.99 for the other four extra characters. I would recommend buying the extra characters since they all have enjoyable abilities. My favorite character is Megan because of her abilities, which include full throttle, jumps and tricks. Even though this app seems pretty simple and plain it is extremely entertaining and addicting to play. During the game you not only have to avoid cars, you will have to outrace the police and weave in and out of rush-time traffic without crashing. This game is not as easy as it seems, since the cars switch lanes at random. While the controlling your character you will have to watch out as you tilt your iDevice side to side by switching lanes and dodging cars. One downside to the game is that when you tilt your iDevice the character flies out of control and crashes to the boundaries and you will have to restart. Overall this app is pretty good and deserves a 9.5 out of 10.
