Android App Video Review: Wheelz

by Erik Fikkert

Wheelz is a simple side-scroller game similar to many other apps in the Android Market. In fact, I was hesitant to even consider this app knowing that there are so many more available. But my attitude quickly changed when I started playing the game and playing through the various levels.

Unlike many of these types of games that you’ll find, this one has some of the most exciting level designs I’ve seen. Instead of just throwing difficult terrain at the player, this game almost acts as a well-designed obstacle course. Every move I made in some of the later levels required some surprising precision. Any mistake, and you’d need to start the entire level over again which made for some intense moments when nearing the end of the course.

While the graphics didn’t offer anything too special, the gameplay really helped this game shine. It comes with quite a few courses to play through, each with its own unique challenges. If you like side-scrolling vehicle games, definitely look into this one. It’s challenging and really addicting. At the time of this review, the price was lower than most apps, making it a great buy.
