Earlier this morning, Eli and I spent some time with Wipeout [$1.99]. It's an "old" game by TA Plays standards, but it's an otherwise interesting one because of its staying power in the App Store charts. We took a look at it in this context, and were kinda surprised by how not bad it was. This is a pretty fun physics-based platformer on its own, and we're guessing it hits even harder for fans of the TV show it's based on.

If you didn't know, in Wipeout you're tasked with weaving your character through three platform-based obstacle courses under a certain time limit. Each course is littered with weird, rubber-y machines designed to knock you off the platform. You can fall down as many times as you want. It's the time that matters.

Give it a look if you haven't yet. It's pretty cool in its own way.

      Brad, we've seen you fail before, so there's no reason to hide your shame this time ;-)

      Also this game looks stinky :(

    Eli, you're thinking of MXC (Most Extreme Elimination Challenge). That show is hilarious. Ninja Warrior is the serious one on G4 that has the super ripped dudes actually showing off athletic prowess.

    Very fishy how this game rocketed to the top of the charts. I suspected there was some manipulation.

  • McNubs

    Disappointed Brad's dude was called 'nicholson' and not 'elisucks'.

  • Tim Cant

    The series peaked with Wip3out TBH

    get the warhammer game books... aside from the rules, it's just all background info.

    also, a canticle for leibowitz is fucking epic when you get to the end... it can be kinda hard to start but it's totally worth it and introduces a trope that doesn't get a lot of play these days but it totally should.
