Smash Cops brings hot pursuit to the BlackBerry PlayBook

Smash Cops for the BlackBerry PlayBook
By Michelle Haag on 1 May 2012 01:11 am EDT
Just this afternoon we we heard that a ton of hot new games were coming to the BlackBerry PlayBook, one of which was Smash Cops from Union. There was a lot of speculation about just when we'd see these games, and lo and behold here is one of them in App World now. Smash Cops is a challenging pursuit game where you drive a police car after runaway bad guys, while avoiding pedestrians, civilian traffic, and other obstacles. Choose from any of 4 mini-games: smash a load of cars illegally parked in a car park, weave through a course laid out by cones, and dodge traffic on a highway and collect evidence throughout the city.

Smash Cops uses a different style of control than you normally find in a car/driving type game. Instead of steering by tilting your device or pressing on either side of the screen, you actually place your finger behind the car to steer. It takes a bit of getting used to but it does work well. The graphics are definitely high quality and with different attack and escape routes spread over 20 missions and 5 vehicles you're sure to play this one for some time to come. You can grab Smash Cops for $4.99 at the link below.

Is it wrong that i feel a bit insulted that this game is more expensive then Lara Croft? I mean, I don't have a problem with that-they have a right to charge what they feel their game is worth.

Definitely glad to see them bring the games to the PlayBook though, just cause I feel insulted doesn't really mean anything... Heck, I've paid more for less significant stuff on AppWorld.

Thanks for the support!


It's a really good, fun game. Honestly.


I side loaded this game over a week ago, RIM u guys need to pick up the pace really. I hope someone just buys u guys, I'm freaking tired of the slowness lol

Ya know, I sideloaded it too, to test it. And now that it's out, I bought it. Supporting devs is a good thing. Also, the developers make the games and apps, not RIM. Pretty sure the devs waited til BlackBerry World to release these games for the extra hype. :)


You need to pick up the pace and slow the piracy down. Once sideloading is limited to developers, you won't be able to do so anymore. Paid apps get paid for not stolen.


Yeah. Because you sideloaded a game over a week ago is a good reason for RIM to get bought out and go through even more restructuring. I'm sure that will really expedite the app approval process.


At this point doesn't even matter


Apparently releasing it the same day it is announced is too slow now.


Yup and plus, he's a piracy lover. Devs need to be supported, not robbed. Idiots like him are harming things. :(


Awesome game! Just bought it


I Just bought it myself, one word for it is “Amazing!"

The Gift

Smash cops is an awesome game, I played it a lot on my iPhone and recently got it for my iPad, the gaming experience is a lot better on the iPad..

PlayBook users you won't be disappointed.
