Is It Any Good?
With simple but responsive controls and a cartoony feel, this arcade racing game manages to be more engaging than most mobile racing games. In SkidStorm, you have to drive around a track faster than your competition. Easy enough, especially since while this has twisty tracks that are fraught with such hazards as oil slicks, it also has simple controls and loose physics, as well as an aerial perspective. But while this feels more like slot racing than Formula 1, it still works so well -- whether your racing against the computer or someone else online -- that you'll feel like your little car is whipping around the track, and you better pay attention if you don't want it to crash. That's especially true since your driver has a lead foot and there are no brakes. Granted, it does mean that SkidStorm can't be used as a driver's ed training program, but you can't go wrong if you're looking for a simple and fun racing game that's more arcade-like than realistic.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
