A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

The controls are super easy to learn, but the game works as such a high speed that a fair amount of skill is needed to pull off good times on the courses.

Violence & Scariness

If your coaster rider's head smacks into an obstacle, it will slow you down, but no real damage is seen. That is true for times you hit supposed "electrical" obstacles, which make a "zzzt!" sound, but that is all.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Rollercoaster Extreme is a fast-paced, "racing" game that requires players to speed along a rollercoaster track that weaves in and out of the buildings of New York City. Making it to the finish line with a high-scoring time (or even a qualifying time) requires a good deal of skill, as you must make your rider weave and duck to avoid obstacles along the way.

Is it any good?

ROLLERCOASTER EXTREME can provide a whole lot of fun, while costing you nothing more than a few megabytes of hard drive space on your iDevice. There might not be much to it -- you ride a coaster through one of several New York neighborhoods, ducking and dodging obstacles, like signs and clothes lines, and reaching out to grab power-ups that give you extra bursts of speed -- it's a pretty exciting ride. In order to make it to the finish line with a qualifying time, you'll need to use turbo bursts quite often -- and that means you'll be zooming at wild speeds, still needing to bob and weave around in your sit as you fly along the track. It is a challenging but exhilarating ride.
