Mobile game of the Week: Wheely World
Wheely World has been trending, this whole week, on the Google Play Store. Developed by Cloudland Studios, it has amassed 100,000+ downloads in a short span of time. This game is an addition to the endless run format, which puts it in the same category as massively popular applications like Temple Run and Subway Surfers. Read our review of Wheely World here.
What is Wheely World all about?
As mentioned, Wheely World is an endless run game; except here players are not running, they are driving. The game puts players in vehicles as they drive and travel across various terrains. The different areas add diversity to the game and ensure that the endless run does not get boring. Players have to avoid obstacles and collect treasure chests which give them bonus points.
A little about Cloudland Studios
An independent video games studio, Cloudland Studios, is based in Australia. They intend to develop original titles for mobiles. The team is led by James Gale (Lead Programmer) and Daniel Riddle (Lead Artist). Currently, Wheely World is their only offering.
The crazy driving experience of Wheely World
Being chased might be fascinating at first, but running through temple ruins or subway tracks gets boring after a while. On the other hand, Wheely World has a desert, grassland and water map. Players start off with one vehicle per map but can buy other vehicles through in-game purchases. The game layout also makes it easy for players to compare their scores globally.
The magic of recording and watching gameplay
One of the most interesting aspects of the game is the 'Everyplay' feature. Players can watch gameplay of others. They can also record and upload their own gameplay. Just pulled off a crazy stunt on Wheely World? Record and post it!
Should you get your fingers to navigate this world?
The gameplay is fairly easy. The drag-and-hold vehicular control simplifies maneuvers. The top-down camera and horizontal maps make gameplay better and don't restrict players to narrow paths like other endless-run games. However, don't mistake easy gameplay for an easy game. As the horizon constantly churns over, players must be alert to react to obstacles. Overall, it is a great option for casual gamers.
