Kills your battery, unbalanced difficulty
Unpossible for Android is a zippy, trippy futuristic racing sorta app. Navigate the obstacles to go as far as you can before going splat.
Unpossible is a simple yet maddening little game. There's a track, suspended in time and space. It almost looks like a psychedelic roller coaster with glowing accents, twisty turns and bends that seem to defy the laws of physics. Imagine you're traversing the track strapped to the front of a roller coaster car; you're not, but imagine the visual perspective, because that's what it feels like when you play this game. As you go fast through the hairpin twists and turns, obstacles appear on the track, and you have to steer to avoid them. Just go as far as you can, as fast as you can. The action is fast paced and nerve wracking.
The controls are quite good, using tilt or taps to steer. Personally, I found the tilt controls far too difficult when the game got fast and frenzied. The tap controls offered far more stability and accuracy. Whatever controls you choose, obstacles are avoided by corkscrewing around the circumference of the track, so once the game gets going, you really start to get dizzy with all the spins, turns and corkscrewing. It's kind of a hot mess.
Unpossible isn't a game you'll last very long at, but you'll likely play it again and again in rapid succession until you're completely maddened or bored. It's fun and looks good, but it ran my CPU very hot and killed the battery, fast. If you decide to try it, keep a barf bag handy just in case.
