Oh not again...

This time the App Army take a look at Hovercrash. This futuristic arcade racer is all about reactions and survival.

This game has underlying problems that will stop anyone from enjoying it. The hit boxes are oversized, so you crash a lot despite not colliding with anything, and the controls are inaccurate. The sound is also very quiet and doesn't create any atmosphere.
I would implement different game modes other than survival, as it gets boring fast. The graphics and controls need to be polished as it isn't enjoyable to play like this.
I have to say, other than control issues and large hitboxes, the game seems okay. Not great, but playable.
It needs a bit more polish before I'd put it out there, but it's a good effort overall.Ethan Harold
Another bog-standard endless runner which offers no new features to an overpopulated genre. I can't find anything noteworthy in this game and won't be keeping it.
This is one of the more basic endless runners in terms of looks. With obstacles few and far between it really doesn't offer much of a challenge.
I think with more interesting backgrounds, better obstacles, and more meaningful objectives this could be a good game. It just lacks a lot of aspects which good endless runners have.Swapnil Jadhav
Hovercrash is a hard game with really poor controls and boring graphics. A lot needs to be fixed and polished before I would play this again, and I don't see how anyone could play this without deleting it immediately after.
