Free iPhone Game of the Week: Cyber Drive
Cyber Drive ostensibly recreates this scene of the fifth element, where Bruce Willis plunges his taxi through layers of traffic in a gigantic futuristic city tinged with neon, weaving through obstacles, until he reaches the bottom of the city.
We say “ostensibly” mainly on the assumption that Cyber Drive is a strangely relaxed version of this idea. The music has a relaxed vibe, the visuals are brilliant and the action is more relentlessly “fairly delicate” than terrifying.
But still, it's still a really fun game. In endless mode, what gets in your way becomes progressively more congested, which forces you to start planning your snake path rather than just reacting. If you don't have as much time to kill, there are also handcrafted finished levels.
