Extra scary roller coaster ride

Haunted 3D Rollercoaster Rush Free is a free three-level preview of Haunted 3D Rollercoaster Rush, a Halloween-themed, 3D follow-up to the 2D arcade game Rollercoaster Rush.

Haunted 3D Rollercoaster Rush Free is a free three-level preview of Haunted 3D Rollercoaster Rush, a Halloween-themed, 3D follow-up to the 2D arcade game Rollercoaster Rush. Like its predecessor, Haunted 3D Rollercoaster Rush has you controlling roller coaster cars on a series of architecturally outrageous tracks, over jumps, curves, loop-the-loops, and increasingly vertiginous drops.

The interface gives you two options for controlling your cars: you can tilt your device right or left to accelerate or brake, or you can use a touch slider to meter your speed. In each level's Play Track mode, you earn from one to three stars, based on how happy you keep your passengers with speed and stunts--for example, by making long jumps or pulling serious Gs. If you push your luck too far, you can crash (and have to start over) or just lose passengers (who abruptly parachute off, presumably to have a quiet corn dog somewhere). In each level's Play Race mode, you try to beat the time of a "ghost rider" who races along with you.

As with the original Rollercoaster Rush, the game's main challenge is learning the tracks and figuring out how to precisely time your trips for maximum thrills and minimum casualties. Unfortunately, this preview only comes with three levels, so you'll need to buy the full version--with 40 tracks, 40 challenges, and the ability to play your own music--to get the full experience.
