Vertigo Racing (Free on iOSAndroid) – This racing game from Chillingo and Deep Byte Studios challenges players to race along roller coaster-style courses without ruining their cars or running out of gas. During each race, players can tap and hold on the gas button to accelerate, and their cars will automatically turn around corners. Users can let go of the gas button or use the brake button to help their cars turn safely. Fuel is consumed automatically during each race, and players can earn more fuel by reaching gas stations along the path. Users can collect coins as they play, which can be spent on car upgrades that can increase a car’s speed, acceleration and more. Users can unlock more cars as they complete in-game cups.

The game includes more than 400 playable cards, and it allows users to create decks containing 25 to 40 cards each. The number of cards players have in their decks determines their starting health in battle. During each card battle, players can spend a limited number of supply points on each turn to deploy units to the battlefield or activate abilities and modules. Modules may allow users to deploy extra units to the battlefield, or they may give a unit the ability to attack a second time on a single turn, as examples. As users destroy enemy cards, they’ll earn energy, which can be used to activate special modules during battle. In addition to playing multiplayer battles against other real players, users can compete in practice matches against artificial intelligence opponents.

Heroes come in multiple types, including cavalry, infantry, archer, spearman, plotter and armored archer. In between battles, players can build kingdoms by collecting and spending resources like wood and coins. Gamers can construct a variety of buildings in their kingdoms, including resource production and storage buildings and a barracks that allows them to upgrade their troops. In addition to competing against computer-controlled armies, users can take their armies into battles against other players.

In each game, users can challenge a friend or a random opponent to answer questions, and the player who answers the most questions correctly will win. During each game, players can use power-ups to help them answer questions.

Users can also land on attack, steal and shield wedges. When a user lands on the attack or steal wedges, they’ll be able to attack another player’s island or steal from another player’s island to receive extra money, respectively. Meanwhile, when a user lands on the shield wedge, a shield will be added to a portion of their island, which will protect it from an enemy attack. As users collect money, they can spend it on upgrades for their islands.
