Recently Released: ‘Fast & Furious Adrenaline’ and ‘Icarus-X’

A couple of interesting releases recently hit the App Store. For various reasons we can’t fully recommend them, but may be of interest.

Fast & Furious Adrenaline, $5.99

A sequel of sorts to Fast & Furious The Game [99¢ / Free], Fast & Furious Adrenaline is another arcade racer that runs at a decent frame rate with tracks filled with jumps and sharp turns. As noted by forum members in the game’s thread, the physics in the game feel off and the draw distance is kind of low, but if you love the Fast & Furious movies, here’s the latest game spinoff.

Icarus-X, $1.99

If you don’t have a device capable of running Espgaluda II [$8.99], Icarus-X may be worth checking out. The 3D graphics are cool, but without an extensive weapon upgrade and power-up system (something which seems to be standard in shoot ’em up games) the game can feel a little monotonous. Forum members seem to be enjoying it because it does a pretty good job at throwing bullet hell at you. The control system is your standard touch to move, but your finger can easily get in the way when you are trying to maneuver your way through fields off bullets.
