Scorcher impressed our Harry with its blistering speed, simple controls, and ridiculous gameplay that takes a while to get going, but really steps up its game when it gets there.

But what do we know? We're just some fools running a website about mobile games. So we decided to give our community of mobile gaming fanatics, the App Army, their hands on the game as well.

You can read their reviews below, but we know what you really want - your own chance of getting the best and latest games for absolutely naught beyond giving us a review.

Well you can! Just join our App Army over on Facebook (make sure to answer the short questions given to you!) and each week you'll have a shot at playing a big game of that week.

And better yet, you can chat about mobile games with other fans of the platform, make some friends, and get some wonderful, stimulating conversation in your life.

Sound good? Then go join the App Army! And come right back to read the reviews of Scorcher!

I'm liking Scorcher. It’s like what bored teenagers on Tatooine do if they aren’t afraid of getting killed before they hit twenty.

Avoid the walls and the worms. Hit the sand sharks to speed up and repair. And beware Tusken Raiders (not really). Music is good, though I turned it and the sound off as it kind of took me away from the zen of jumping and dodging.

Seriously good looking game with easy, simple controls (no issues on my iPhone screen) and basic but good graphics. I’m not a fan of endless runners, but I liked this, as it appeals to podracer in me.

Doesn’t take too long or too many attempts to do well enough to unlock the next level. I can see myself going back to this one regularly, and I can happily recommend it.
