Games like Road Trip have been around on other platforms for a long time and in fact there are alternatives in BlackBerry World, although I think they are all Android ports and possibly not even by the same developers as on Google Play. We now have a official native BlackBerry 10 game and it's really good.
The concept of the game is just to drive your car along the road collecting coins and avoiding the other traffic. Sounds simple, but I can assure you it gets pretty heated at times. The car auto accelerates, but by pressing the display you can activate a boost. This isn't unlimited and is shown up at the top left of the screen as a green bar around the speedometer.
You'll need to ensure you use the boost at the right times, so don't waste it. The reason being is that there are canyons that you must jump over and you'll need as much speed as possible to make the jump. Controlling the car is achieved by tilting your BlackBerry left and right so it couldn't be easier.
The graphics are pretty sweet with Road Trip and combined with nice background music and realistic sound effects it makes for a great experience. As you progress through the game and build up your collection of coins you will be able to spend these on unlocking new cars. There are 10 in total but I'm not good enough yet to have unlocked many - however I will be playing Road Trip on a regular basis as I may be in love with it! There is the option to buy the cars from in-app purchases if you really want to but I won't be going down that road.
Road Trip will set you back £1.50/$1.99 which is money worth spending in my opinion. Let us have your thoughts in the comments if you give it a go.
