Wipeout is a fun television game show that sees contestants make their way through an obstacle course and get beaten and battered in the process. Wipeout for iOS is taken directly from the game show, only you play the contestant as he or she slides, jumps, and falls through the course. The game has lots of navigational controls -- almost too many -- but even if you can't remember exactly how to slide and jump, it's still fun to play.
Thankfully, Wipeout has an Audition feature that walks you through the many controls: Slide your thumb forward to jog; tap your right thumb while jogging to jump forward; drag your left thumb down to squat down; and lots more. We had to go through the Audition section several times to get the hang of it, and we never really mastered it. But it was fun to watch our character get smacked down by the moving obstacles or bounce off a ball into the water. During our first run of the first level, we got a glimpse of the full course and off we went. We thought for sure we'd wipe out, but we breezed through the first level to the finish line and had a blast doing it. We didn't fare as well in the next course and were reminded of our poor performance in an instant replay. As your game improves and progresses, you're able to unlock characters and levels. You can also buy items with your coins, such as a helmet to protect your noggin.
Wipeout definitely takes some practice to get used to it, but it's a blast to play. We recommend it for anyone who likes a challenging game.
