A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Offroad Legends Sahara wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.

Ease of Play

Controlling the trucks is fairly simple, done through minimal virtual buttons and either tilting your phone or tablet from side to side -- or using onscreen buttons to tilt the vehicle.

Violence & Scariness

Trucks explode when they fall and their damage meter hits zero. 

Sexy Stuff

Your onscreen "guide" in the game is a woman wearing a low-cut top, showing lots of cleavage.

Language
Consumerism

The app features links to other games by the developer, and urges players to buy the full version of its sister title Offroad Legends

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Offroad Legends Sahara is a monster truck stunt and racing game that has players jump their vehicles over a series of hills, bridges, and other obstacles. The game uses semi-realistic physics to convey momentum, but not at the expense of gameplay. There's minimal violence when a vehicle crashes (occasional explosions, but no human suffering is depicted). The game does, however, urge players to buy the full version of its sister title Offroad Legends

What's it about?

Kids attempt to complete various courses without crashing, with faster speeds earning bonus stars. They do this by accelerating (and braking) using their right thumb, while they use their left thumb to direct the tilt of the car. (Tilt can also be adjusted by rotating the phone or tablet, if that option is preferred.) Coming down at the correct angle gives you momentum going into the next jump. Along the way, there are nitro boosts that briefly increase your speed. Players can unlock other trucks by collecting stars on each track.

Is it any good?

Like its for-pay big brother, Offroad Legends Sahara offers a good blend of racing and stunt driving. (It also offers different courses than the previous game.) It's not an easy game, but every mistake you make is easy to pinpoint.

The game is graphically impressive, but the physics could get annoying for some. It's a ride that's not without its bumps, but ultimately, that's what the fan base is likely looking for.
