I found this game whilst looking at the app store homepage and it came up as the game of the day. I thought to myself “Well, Apple isn’t going to recommend a game that isn’t good, aren’t they?” Let’s see if I was right…

Gameplay

Go through a difficult obstacle course to reach the end and beat your opponent!

Unfortunately, MMX Hill Dash 2 doesn’t really have a story. Instead, you have to drive an obstacle course full of roadways that are collapsing, loop-the-loops, and other obstacles, finishing before your opponent. You also have to ensure that your car doesn’t run out of gas or flip over because then it will explode and you will be kicked out of the race. Admittedly, this is pretty hard to do!

It definitely takes some real skills to beat your component, or even finish the race full stop. There is an option to upgrade your speed which definitely helps, however, that will cost you and we know that some of you gamers don’t enjoy spending a dime on app games! We don’t blame you, some of them definitely aren’t worth it and this is one of them.

Graphics

The visuals are nice and the cars and the characters are detailed!

The graphics for MMX Hill Dash 2 aren’t the best but they’re not bad either. They’re just simple cartoon yet 3D style graphics that are colorful. However, I do find that the game lags which doesn’t help as this is a pretty hard game and you can’t really afford for the game to lag on top of that.

However, the visuals are nice and the cars and characters are quite detailed. I definitely wouldn’t say it’s of console quality but it’s definitely not bad.

Music

Depending on random circumstances, there is sometimes music in MMX Hill Dash 2 and sometimes there isn’t. I prefer when there isn’t. The music is slightly annoying, however, there is an option to turn it off if you wish.



Controls

Control your vehicle with two buttons and try not to explode like we did!

There are two buttons to control everything with, the accelerator and the brake. When you’re in the air from whatever reason, these controls help you tilt your vehicle but when you’re on the ground, they control how fast you’re going.

The Power of in-app Purchases

The verdict

What did you think of MMX Hill Dash 2?

When it comes to fast-paced games that you can play in your spare time, this is definitely a winner. It’s easy to play a little bit here and there but it’s definitely not something that can be played for hours on end. However, the game is particularly hard in some places.

You start the game enjoying yourself but then within a flash your car will explode and you’ll think it’s just a learning curve. Wrong. Next thing you know you’ve played the same level 30 times in one day and you keep exploding at the same point. It became SO annoying! I am currently stuck on level 6 and I give up – I play games in the evening to wind down not to bring my stress levels back up!

On top of this, there are no checkpoints in the level so if you explode, you have to start from the beginning. What kind of sick game doesn’t have checkpoints? Also the fuel system means you can’t go slower otherwise you’ll run out of gas. Which also kicks you out of the level. Basically, you can’t win.

Even if you’re thinking “Sure, I love a challenge”, be prepared because it most likely will come to a point where you’re screaming at your phone…
