Destruction has been the bedrock of the Burnout series since its inception. Its depiction of humongous crashes, twisted metal, and gigantic explosions verges on the obscene.
Burnout Crash! tries to bring some of that high-octane, adrenaline-pumping pile-up action to your iOS device.
Tries, but doesn't wholly succeed. While the explosions and ridiculous damage are all still in place, the transition to the smaller screen hasn't been an unqualified success.
Crash, bang, wallop
The game is a top-down pile-'em-up. You control a plucky little car that's speeding towards a busy intersection. The aim is to plough into traffic, causing as much carnage as you can and racking up points in proportion with the amount of damage you create.
All of the ingredients for some destructive fun might be in place, but Burnout Crash! can't quite mix them together into an appetising meal
