    The real magic lies in the emotional attachment to the characters and the whimsical sounds and visuals that permeate every inch of the touch screen.

    While some developers explore how to bring a console experience to the App Store, Bumpy Road by Simogo explores the short arcade-like experience to make something engaging and engrossing.

    Bumpy Road's seemingly shallow gameplay might not net core gamers looking for some depth in their iPhone offerings, but they ought to give it a whirl anyway. The game may well drive off with your heart.

    I don't like it. Period.

    It'a a nice concept, to push the floor beneath you in order to accelerate or break your little car, but It's almost
