If you enjoy laughing at contestants dragging themselves across and over the “Sucker Punch”, “Big Balls” and the “Sweeper”, you are invited to experience be on Wipeout yourself!
Based on the hilarious obstacle game show of the same name by ABC television, Wipeout puts you in the shoes of contestants who try to beat these comical yet challenging obstacles to win a large cash prize. Inevitably, you will be bullied and abused by huge bars and pendulums that swing across and beams that sweep around your path, it is your job to try to slide, jump or duck these wacky obstacles, or be swept down into the water.
The goal of the game is simple – to get across the course in the quickest time possible. There is a limited amount of time or attempts allowed so keep you heads up and do your best. Gameplay is action packed, and most obstacles require a level of skill to complete. Something you would notice is the reaction of the players, when they are thrown around with annotations such “SURVIVOR”, “GUTBUOWR” and “OW”. Not surprisingly, you are rewarded with style points for doing these stupid things. You can even view hilarious replays or still shots of your wipeout.
The game has a physics engine and so player movements are calculated and not overly unrealistic. Seeing yourself being thrown around like a ragdoll is just part of the fun. As for the controls, we found them to be abit clumsy and clunky. Sliding your left thumb left and right to run works well, sliding and diving is difficult to execute. This might get frustrating sometimes, but also adds the the wackiness of the entire game.
There are 3 parts to the game – the qualifying round, a themed challenge, and lastly the Wipeout Zone. The courses are largely challenging, and there are five insane themed shows that can be unlocked as you progress in the game.
As you contest in the various rounds against other challengers, you will earn Ballsy Bucks, Wipeout’s in-game currency that can be used to unlock new courses, new characters and even ridiculous hats that grants you special powers such as super-jumps goes towards frills like opening up new courses, gaining new contestants, or buying new powerup helmets. Each contestant has its own strengths and weaknesses, and the helmets grants you special powers like the ability to slow down time. Plus, there is no reason why you should’t be wearing a eagle shaped hat
Wipeout is a thoroughly fun game. Players are sure to have enjoy sliding, running, jumping and falling all the way to the end. With all the unlockables available, players of Wipeout are sure to be hooked for a splashing and smashing good time. Buy Wipeout here at $1.99!
