Formula Cartoon All-Stars Review [iOS]

cartoonnetwork_iconMany of us love cart racers, especially ones that feature many of our favorite characters. Games like Mario Kart, Modnation Racers, and Diddy Kong Racing have proved that cart racers are a big hit with fans because of their competitive nature and insane use of powerups. With that said, there will always be a place for cart racers and the newest one on the block is Formula Cartoon All-Stars by Cartoon Network. This is a cart racer for iOS that features many of your favorite Cartoon Network characters such as Steven Universe, Gumball, Finn, and Clarence.

First off, the graphics and art in the game are quite good. Since this is a Cartoon Network game, I would expect nothing less. The game is presented as a top down, isometric racer with all the art assets in 3D. Everything has a very colorful look to them, very similar to most of Cartoon Network’s stable of shows. Fans of their shows won’t be disappointed. The game even uses a lot of real voices from each of the shows.

If you’re looking for a competitive cart racer, Formula Cartoon All-Stars gives it to you. The racing can be action packed with the use of powerups, making competition fierce amongst all the racers. Getting first place isn’t as easy as it sounds and you’ll need to spend in-game currency on upgrades to gain the upper hand.

For the most part, the game is very similar to other cart racers which will make it very familiar to players. The only difference is with its simple control scheme. Controlling the cart requires the use of a virtual steering wheel that you turn to change directions. There’s no accelerator or brake so you won’t need to worry about that and the only other buttons on screen are for your nitro boost and activation of powerups. This all makes for an incredibly easy game to get into.

I think carting fans will be pleased with this entry from Cartoon Network. Kids definitely will enjoy it because it includes a lot of their favorite Cartoon Network characters while adults will be pleased with the the simple controls and competitive play. Overall, Formula Cartoon All-Stars a pretty good cart racer that players of all ages should enjoy.
