Last month, developers Polarbit and Pixelbite Games delivered Reckless Getaway [$2.99] into the App Store, a game we liked a lot in our review. In Reckless Getaway, you play as a bank robber who is desperately trying to evade a police pursuit immediately following a bank heist. The goal is to make it past the police barricade that marks the end of each level while racking up as many points as possible along the way, and avoiding taking too much damage in the process.
Despite being a fun, arcadey, and explodey experience, one of our chief complaints with Reckless Getaway was that it was a rather short game, containing just 16 levels. With a new update that was released last week, the developers have done a good job of addressing this issue, and have effectively doubled the amount of content in the game.
This update brings a new “Wreckless” mode in addition to the normal Getaway mode. In Wreckless mode you’ll take the driver’s seat of a big, green semi-truck; and rather than worry about collecting coins for points, your only task is to run into as many cars and cause as much damage as possible before the finish line. You’ll play through all the same levels that are in Getaway mode, but with their own separate 4 star grading systems for Wreckless mode, giving you twice the amount of goals to shoot for as before.
Reckless Getaway was a fun game to begin with, and with the new Wreckless mode there’s now even more to like about it. Pixelbite has also said on their website that more updates are already in the works, with another brand new mode and new levels planned for the future. I can’t wait to hear more about that, but for now the Wreckless mode update is more than satisfying, and players in our forums are enjoying it as well.
