What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that DrawRace 2 HD is a unique racing game that doesn't require users to steer a car, but asks them to outline the course for their drivers with finger swipes on a track, then see if their planning works well. The game offers multiplayer through the Crystal social network, which might concern some parents, and pushes in-app purchases semi-aggressively, but the game itself lacks anything to be wary of.
Is it any good?
DRAWRACE 2 HD isn't your typical racing game -- and that's what makes it so refreshing. Rather than tiling your iPad back and forth to clumsily control an onscreen car, you lay out the path for the driver to take with your finger before the race, then see if your plan worked (aiding drivers along occasionally with a turbo boost). It's unique, addicting and is a game that will last you a long, long time. The in-app purchases are front and center, but not shoved down your throat (and are mainly shortcuts for players who don't have the patience to unlock tracks and cars themselves). And the game is simply fun. It's a great choice for race fans who are tired of the hundreds of "me-too" apps currently available.
