    The Challenge

    Cart racing games have come in force to the iPhone, mainly because there quick moving versatility works perfectly with the motion sensor abilities of the device. A number of games have flooded that App Store, and Cro-Mag Rally is one of the best under five dollars. The game is easy to pick up on, but there are a few tips out there to help you step your stills up.

    The first thing you need to figure out is how comfortable you are with the motion controls for steering. What you want to know is how you intuitively address the control interface and if you want it to be more or less sensitive. From here you can change those settings to make sure that it feels natural. The same can be said about the settings for the point of view and whether or not you would like reverse controls. None is inherently better then the other and really just depend on how you feel.

    Know Your Tracks

    It is important to use the environment around you to your advantage, especially since each level has a high level of interactibility. Try to get going fast right before you see steep mountain areas because this will transform them from a slowing agent into a way to jump over obstacles. Try to keep yourself in line with the tokens for collection, unless you have a weapon you want to hold on to for a while.

    Kart Tips

    Keep in mind the unique nature of the actual vehicle controls in Cro-Mag. Do not sit on the acceleration the whole time because this will make you lose control and will get you caught into dead end places. There is a large variety of different vehicles to choose from, but there is not one single kart that is going to be best for all levels. When you begin the level try to avoid mashing together with the other karts, mainly because this will almost ensure your immediate lead. If you have a speed item, only use it in a place that you will not have to steer around so that you can avoid skidding out. If you do skid out, try to continue going forward at any cost, even if you have to use reverse for part of the way.
