”Bumpy Road is one of the best purchases I’ve made on the app store. Not just because the gameplay has a hook unlike anything I’ve played on an iOS device, but also because it’s got a fantastic aesthetic.” - IGN.com (9/10 Editor's Choice)
”While Bumpy Road is indeed a solid high scoring game, it’s the peripheral elements that transcend it from being merely a well-made video game to an unforgettable experience ... if you like high scoring games or touching works of art, then you won’t want to miss Bumpy Road ” - Toucharcade.com
"Must Have" - Slidetoplay.com (4/4)
” ... playing it means feeling love, not love for the designers or the medium or the state of being meaningfully distracted or the sense of communion with everyone who does this or even the game itself, but love. The feeling of love.” - Killscreendaily.com
I love the music and the graphics to this game. It's simply adorable. Totally worth the price.
This game is much too difficult to control and just leads to frustration. While there is a goal to the game (collecting memories), unlocking them does not outweigh the trouble it takes to collect them. Definitely not worth the $2.99 that this over-hyped game costs.
I am super cheap and hate spending more than 99 cents for an app, but I figured I would give this a try and I'm so glad I did. Some of the reviews said that the controls take too long to learn, but I think that mastering the controls is part of the fun. Music and visuals are great as well. I'd pick this game over a 3 dollar cup of coffee any day.
Definitely worth the purchase. Something I notice that could be added is multi-touch, allowing to make multiple bumps in the road!
It is not fun at all.
Don't listen to all the bad reviews! Most of them are about "hard controls" and such, but it's a sort of hard game. Once you get the hang of the controls (it took me about 10 min to get used to it), the game is easy! The story is deep and romantic and sad, and overall, this is one of my favorites! Worth the price! I've suggested it to others and they have all loved it!
At first I passed on this game because I felt the reviews didn't justify paying $2.99 for a game. After playing on a friends iPad I had to buy it for myself and I have to say...a beautiful stunning game. There's the immediate challenge of actually going for the 'bumpy ride' but over time you get wrapped up in the amazing and lovely storyline that is at the heart of the trip. You really get into it and the mood behind each trip changes the more you find out about the couple. The makers behind this game are just genius. Please ignore the negative reviews! The controls aren't hard at all, just tricky like they should be. The game is fun and just challenging enough and the goal isn't points but just gettin to the end of the beautiful story. Please please please make more levels with more stories f their life! This game DESERVES more levels and sequels!
This game is really good okay. Really good. But that's depending on many different things: First of all, I thought this was a level game. It's not. It's just an endless game and you go racking up points. What's the point of a $3 endless game you may ask? Why shouldn't I just get Temple Run for free because that game is endless and it's free. That brings me to my second point. SEMI-SPOILER Although this game has very little to offer for $3 it brings so much more once you really look into it. Along the endless game (which, for a quick break, can be quite addicting), you see little picture frames, or memories. These picture frames tell a story, won't say any more. The reason this game loses a star, besides its ridiculous pricing, is that these picture frames are extremely difficult to encounter. You'll rarely find them at the beginning of the endless game, so if you lose a lot, it is almost impossible to complete the story. There is a substantial amount of picture frames so the game is probably worth it just for the amount of time you'll spend trying to uncover the story about *COUGH COUGH COUGH* In short, it is a good game, and if you're looking for a good endless game, buy it.
I hated this app. It's boring. DO NOT BUY! It's tiring and music is annoying. For $2.99 it was NOT worth it.
I usually don't write reviews, but I couldn't help myself this time. Despite what some people said, I found the controls to be easy to master, and they are so much fun. Add in the sweet love story and adorable artwork, and I was won over.
