    A good distraction for anyone who's looking for a new infinite runner with a dash of personality, but not a game that will be long remembered.

    An unrealistically fun game that just hits all the right spots.Apart from a ridiculously original title that would definitely pique yourAn unrealistically fun game that just hits all the right spots.Apart from a ridiculously original title that would definitely pique your curiosity,the whole game finds its niche in smashing and destroying everything in your path similar to Daddy Was A Thief by the same developers. Unlike DWAT, this game oozes replay ability from the get-go and you won't be able to put it down once you start so the ability to exercise self-discipline with this game is much needed.

    You play as this cartoony hero who drives his car through districts to rescue the citizens captured by the aliens (hence the title).Every district begins with your hero driving and making his car jump through buildings, smashing barrels of TNT and exploding watermelons, dodging pick-up trucks with rear spikes and aliens disguised as human enemies firing at you including evading a giant mechanical dino-robot that stomps after you if you fall behind occasionally who may or may not gobble you up if your reflex time is dismal. After about 2 minutes of smashing through the district, you'll promptly arrive at the alien base where all the citizens are held captive. Here is where you'll need to leave your car and enter the building to perform your heroic duties like shooting down the alien enemies, dodging and shooting down helicopters that fire rockets at you. Once you've successfully retrieved the key by randomly shooting at enemies, you'll need to head to the top of the building to destroy the alien portal. At the end of each world, you'll face an boss to shoot down. All these smashing,shooting and rescuing earns you coins to be used in the in-app shop where you can purchase power-ups, unlock guns,cars and costumes for your hero.

    With that much of content (don't be fooled by the initial display of 9 districts as the levels are just immensely vast) and coupled with the replay ability factor, Aliens Drive Me Crazy is not your average endless runner of sorts. It excels in every aspect from music to SFX and superb cartoon style graphics that looks amazing on your Retina Display iOS device all at a reasonable price tag and no in-app purchases.Truly one of the underrated gems on the App Store this year.
