Don’t even try to tell me you’re not loving the Summer Olympics right now. I’ve been searching for a decent Olympic game app, and I finally found one in Athletics: Summer Sports. Take your country through 30 different events, and 5 competitions like triathlons and decathlons to compete for gold.
The games 3D graphics are very good for the iPhone, and I love how many different sports you can play to keep you coming back. If you want to do things like swim, run, long jump, javelin, or row, you’ll need to tap the screen repeatedly as fast as you can if you plan on winning a gold medal. Not so fast, if it’s one of the longer races, you’ll need to change your tapping pace to conserve energy just like Michael Phelps and Missy Franklin! Lets get inspired people, you think this is a joke? Get ready to sweat, give up, even cry, as you battle to beat real scores across the world!
Athletics: Summer Sports doesn’t have every Olympic event, but with other sports like diving, fencing, archery, and pistol shooting, there are plenty of events to keep you playing and competing with friends on the leaderboard. You can even split the screen to get you and your lovers blood flowing! If I could add an update, different ways to touch the screen when playing an event would be better, and a difficulty option, as you better plan on losing unless you are a real fast tapping Olympian.
Tangram3D has really taken their time with this app, and I hope with great reviews, we’ll get more sports and features like the yellow world record line. If you’re watching every minute of the Summer Olympics and looking to join in on the medals in the laziest way possible, well except for the finger exercises, Athletics: Summer Sports is the app for you.
We would love to hear if you downloaded the app and what you thought of it, leave us a comment below!
