App of the Day: Speed Blazers

Melbourne studio Frakatalvoid's first game is a fast-paced thrill ride with great art and some really nifty control features.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

This little racing game was made right here on Aussie shores, and the peeps at Fraktalvoid have done a fine job. In Speed Blazers, you take your little racing person and zoom around on tracks using special rollerblades. It's actually pretty easy to win first place — but collecting all the coins and targets on the way is a bit harder. And smashing up your opponents adds yet another element of fun. I really love how clean the art is, too; but one of my favourite things about it is that it's not difficult straight away, that you can pick it up and play it and feel you are achieving something. The controls were a little bit stiff, but Fraktalvoid tightened them up in short order; all in all, it's a jolly great showing.
