IOS Spotlight #4: Wipeout

Title: Wipeout
Developer: Activision
Platforms: IOS Universal
Price: $0.99
For the most part, movie and show tie-in games are pretty bad. Good tie-ins are few and far between and for that fact alone, you may have ignored Wipeout, based on the hit ABC show. But that would be a mistake, since this tie-in is actually a fun platformer that's worth a try.
As in the show, you jump and dive through various themed courses, avoiding (or trying to avoid) obstacles. The touch controls are simple and responsive, allowing you to dodge spinning poles and jump from swinging platforms with ease. And like the show, every wipeout is quite amusing and a replay feature allows you to re-watch each one in slow motion and from different angles. There are several outfits and ability-adding helmets to equip as well.
Wipeout isn't the best IOS platformer, but it's far from the worse. For $0.99, you get a decent game that'll provide fun and humorous failures for those short waits or bus rides home.
