Today’s free iPhone app at FreeAppADay.com is Ground Effect, from Glenn Corpes.
Ground Effect is an arcade racer that sees you controlling one of 10 hovering ekranoplan vehicles through 14 levels at speeds of over 400 kmh.
The game gives you the view of multiple scenic vistas as you race your way around tight mountain roads or through lush jungles and over water. If screw up during a race, you can take advantage the game’s replay mode which will allow you to take over your performance and try again. Aside from the classic arcade mode, a ghost mode is available that allows you to race against ghosts of your fastest performance on a track, and a freeplay mode gives you the opportunity to explore the environments at your your own pace, so as to learn all of the twists and turns of a track before trying to race on it.
That game supports your own music as a soundtrack, you can keep track of your high scores, and you can even choose from either a touch or accelerometer control scheme.
If Ground Effect sounds interesting to you, make sure to download the game while it’s free today.
