Need for Speed Undercover for iPhone
Burn some rubber in Need for Speed Undercover for iPhone

Need for Speed is a well-known franchise, and EA have taken a big risk in bringing the fast paced racing game to the iPhone small screen. While it could have all gone horribly wrong, the game has been executed with aplomb and the high octane game has made a successful transition to the iPhone.

The available tracks are linear, and while this is a major difference from the free roaming worlds available in console version of the game, it does not detract from its playability. Controls for the game are about as good as they come. Rather than littering the screen with icons that need to be touched, auto-acceleration means that you don’t need to worry about propelling your car forwards and accelerometer friendly steering wheel controls take care of cornering.

A variety of gestures are used to apply brakes and use nitros meaning that you are left free to concentrate on the road ahead. The graphics are genuinely impressive, particularly when you consider the hardware the game is running on. Speed is certainly present, and the environment just flies by at breakneck speed.

With eight different race mode, three different environments and a range of vehicle customisation options, there’s plenty to keep you coming back for more.
 

Verdict:

A game that is as exhilarating as its console-based counterparts and one that demonstrates the iPhone’s legitimacy as a gaming platform.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
