Rally car racing simulator WRC The Official Game drifts on to iOS and Android

It doesn't get more official

Rally car racing simulator WRC The Official Game drifts on to iOS and Android

I love that the first thing it says on the store page for WRC The Official Game is "THE RALLY SIMULATION". The phraseology is so weird, almost like it's a typo that slipped through.

But no, it's a phrase that sums up what the game is all about: simulating the crap out of rally car racing.

What's more, this simulator is official, or rather, it's THE OFFICIAL. As it also says on the store page, it contains all the "official content of the 2014 FIA World Rally Championship."

There are 18 official cars, 17 official drivers, and 13 official WRC rally races (and 60 special stages). Developer Bigben Interactive has gone all-out on official-ness, don't you worry.

Jesting aside, there's a decent amount of customisability on offer in WRC The Official Game too.

You can create your own team, use touch or tilt controls, fiddle with the interface to your liking, and it's compatible with a number of gamepads.

And, for those of you without super racing skills (like me), there's a rewind feature so you can fix any errors you make instantly.

For rally racing fans and general motorheads, WRC The Official Game is probably worth a punt.

You can purchase it for £2.49 / $3.99 on the App Store [buy] and Google Play [buy]. It's also available on the Nintendo eShop for the 3DS.
