New APP Alert: Squiggle Racer (Flappy who?)

I was challenged the other day to a game of Squiggle Racer. It looked easy enough. Race the cute little car around the track. Conquer each level and unlock a new race track. But I hate it…sort of.  I can’t put it down.

No…wait…I DO put it down…and WALK AWAY.

And then it LURES me back in.

It BECKONS me. (insert swear word)

squiggle racerThis 8-bit game isn’t full of bells and whistles. It’s an easy tap-and-play game that feels a bit nostalgic. It’s clean and frustratingly fun. Inspired by the highly addictive gameplay which helped propel Flappy Bird to popularity, Squiggle Racer brings back the experience of simple play.

The game was created by Charles Schultze who has a career as a developer for over 15 years including being an engineer with HBO, principal engineer at Yahoo! and now President of CS54 Inc. Schulze has had the opportunity to develop and execute web, mobile and enterprise apps for some of the world’s top brands. His most notable work was creating and developing popular app “Comb Over Charlie” and working on the team that developed the HBO GO suite of applications.

If you  have the kind of personality that loves a challenge then this is definitely for you! It’s a test of patience with a satisfying reward of moving upwards and onwards. But have a sense of humour with this and know when enough is enough. Then go back when you’re ready.

Think you can do it?
