jellycar iphoneHang on to your ejection seat, JellyCar has been released for the iPhone! With more than 463 reviews, JellyCar has received an average user rating of four out of five stars on the App Store. Created by the Glendale-based developer, Walaber, it was released on October 19 and has already seen quite a few downloads in the App Store.

According to, "The game is about driving a squishy car through squishy worlds, trying to reach the exit. JellyCar features soft body physics for all of the objects in the world. Also, your car can transform for a limited time to aid progression through the level."

As you take control of the "squishy" car, you accelerate by holding the right side of the screen and stop/reverse by tapping or holding the left side of the screen. The point of JellyCar is to pass all the obstacles and reach the exit. Though JellyCar doesn't compete with the PS3 in graphics (more along the lines of a Gameboy I'd say), it is a sure bet for an addictive good time.

Don't like the sound effects? No problem! With JellyCar you can listen to your own music during gameplay (which is a great feature that not all games offer). JellyCar was originally for the Xbox 360 and Windows systems. But this new iPhone App puts the gas pedal in the palm of your hand.

Pros of JellyCar:

  • Ability to listen to music while playing JellyCar
  • Sound effects
  • Simple touch tilt controls

Cons of JellyCar:

  • Poor graphics that are too simple
  • Beginning levels can be quite challenging

Many users have stated that they would have gladly paid for this app, but I beg to differ. I think that price is relative and compared to more complex apps, JellyCar is fairly priced... Free.

    This game reminds me a lot of a free online game called Line Rider. Does anyone else know which game I'm talkin about?
