A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Players set the course for their cars with simple finger swipes on the screen, outlining where they want them to drive. The game's difficulty ramps up at a steady pace, but never has a big leap from challenging to seemingly impossible.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Players can buy additional levels, cars, and skills via in-app purchase. The app is semi-aggressive in pushing the purchases.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What 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.
