This weeks iOSDocked Game Center Showdown is Impossible Road from developer Kevin NG. The game design is minimal yet beautiful. You are presented with a white ball to guide down a blue track. There are touch targets on the left and right side of your device to steer the ball. The game is fast paced with techo music and should be played with headphones. You do have the option to turn the music off but you will still hear some sound effects of the game. The goal is to get though as many check points as possible. Although it sounds easy, it is quite difficult to do. The ball moves fast and the turns are sharp. You can guide the ball off track to try and skip some portions but you can only free fall for a few seconds before the game is over. You do not have to worry about hitting all of the check points consecutively as you are awarded points for whatever checkpoint you go through. So if you hit checkpoints 1, 2, 3, 4 then 10, your score will be 10. Impossible Road is an addicting, fast paced, arcade style game that will keep you occupied for hours once you get past the learning curve. Impossible Road is available in the App Store for $2.99 as a universal app. Make sure you tweet your progress using hashtag #gamecentershowdown to see how you compare against the iOSDocked crew!
