Caaargh! The Memory Racing Game

iTunes Description

CAR + AAAARGH = CAAARGH! Crash a lot. Remember the dice. Stay zen, or not! You’ll want to yell and shout each time you fly off the road, but only a zen-like mind will get you to the end of each track.Can you learn the track? Can you keep your cool? Can you remember the dice code? What’s a dice code you ask? Read on…

In Caaargh you race right up against the leading edge of the screen (except when you use your limited zoom-out power to get a better glance of what’s ahead). Driving blind like this would ruin any other racing game, but in Caaargh the infuriatingly stressful camera angle is the game. You’ll need a combination of cat-like reflexes and elephant-like recollection to make it through each level.

While your brain is working overtime navigating the track, there is an extra challenge to keep your mind engaged: as you race each track you’ll pass three dice. To get a perfect score when you complete the level, you’ll also need to remember the numbers you’ve seen on the dice.

    Whole lotta nothing

    • StumbleSojourn

      What are you talking about?!? Rare is the week where we get two games like "Air Safety World" AND "Sexy Beach Fast Food." You are just too hard to please!

  • Erpiotta5

    All free to play game wtf is happen guys???no way, this is the wrong way

  • Nico&Smokey

    Just Battle Bay for me. Hopefully there will be surprises overnight. If not what a horrible week other than Battle Bay.

  • ReedMcKinney

    Was hoping that kotor 2 would release since tomorrow is May 4th 🙁

    • shadax

      Kotor 1 is on sale at least

  • bigmonkeynads

    Worst line up ever...

  • Tychaeus

    Well, at least I still have Spells of Genesis. What a horrible week for mobile releases 😕

  • Kainamor

    Well SpacePlan is already out and Her Majesty's SPIFFING should be out tomorrow which is suppose to be a good one.

    • Tychaeus

      Ooooh, space plan.....are....you....kidding

        Yeah it so good. I love space and sci-fi so I have not put it down, plus the music is great.

    • Chris

      Is it different from the web browser version in any way?

  • Adam

    I got as far as "Air Safety World" before deciding this would be a lame week.

    It was.

  • dancj

    I've heard good things about Race for the Galaxy

    • Tychaeus

      It just looks too bland

    • onebigdoor

      Race for the Galaxy is an excellent table top game. I can't speak to the mobile implementation, but I'm grabbing it without hesitation.

  • Chris

    RFTG!!!

  • John

    It might just be me, but it feels like mobile games are increasingly becoming lazier, more basic and just generally worse. There was a time when I'd check out these lists, and there'd be at least a few titles that I'd want to buy. Now, not so much. Like I said though, maybe it's just me.

    • Kainamor

      It seems to me there are more great games coming now, especially ports. I can agree with how it seems though because there is a lot more white noise to dig through to find them.

    • Nico&Smokey

      I agree they look so cheaply made and the games this week looks like a 2 year old made the games and for the past several weeks as well.

  • dave71

    They used to hunt out the games worth playing .. They have got lazy or the quality of games are so terrible now ?!

    • dancj

      Neither. It's just that mobile games have evolved so much that we've come to expect a higher standard - and it gets harder and harder to come up with something original.

  • Paul

    Got to ask, why I try and support ads on toucharcade, what is the deal with the video at the bottom of every article sucking up data and causing music to pause? Specifically blocked it now as just obtrusive. Please don't use auto playing ads, I want to support this site.

  • ff-lover

    What a bunch of crappy games is littering the App Store this week! I'm beginning to lose hope there will ever come more high quality console like games 😢

    FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE FREE

  • John

    Err, why was my comment removed?

    • http://toucharcade.com Eli Hodapp

      Not sure what your comment was but we typically heavily moderate these threads otherwise they get filled with people posting how all these games are trash, mobile is shit, another terrible week for iOS games, and similar things. These comments, aside from those sorts of comments being objectively untrue (I streamed all these games yesterday, aside from one very bad game I played as more of a joke than anything else they were all good), they also invite loads of arguing.

      So we just nuke both the "All these games are shit" comments as well as any responses to them as the vast majority of people use these posts to find out what new games there are and which are worth downloading. (The answer to that question is never "none.")

      • John

        Ah ok. That would explain it, then. My comment was a personal opinion about the quality of mobile gaming, lately. It wasn't intended to incite arguments, but I get why it's not here anymore. I'll make a mental note not to share my thoughts here, if they have any type of negative connotations. Thanks for clarifying.

      • http://toucharcade.com Eli Hodapp

        Thanks!
