3D Rollercoaster Rush Jurassic 2 for BlackBerry is a free game for BlackBerry 7 devices that uses the new devices’ OpenGL capabilities.
The Rollercoaster Rush series is part of Digital Chocolate’s simple mobile control games. Often these games require only one or two buttons to play, which is ideal for the mobile. In this game you can either choose to employ a touchscreen speed gauge or use motion controls. The motion controls use the very-accurate accelerometer, which is responsive and fun.
3D Rollercoaster Rush 2 features BBM integration so you can let your friends know you’re playing as well as invite your friends to play. If you’ve shared any high scores through BBM your friends will also be able to challenge that high score.
The gameplay is all about controlling the speed and momentum of your rollercoaster cars. The object is to subject your riders to as fast and fun a ride as possible without going so fast that they have a hard landing after a jump. Mid-way through the game the tracks start getting very difficult with lots of jumps that will have you instantly lose if you take them too fast. There are also points that won’t let you advance unless you have a high enough cumulative score. It’s a simple game but there is a surprising amount of depth built-in.
There are lots of ways to score bonus points by providing an exciting ride: crushing Gs, hyper speed, and long jump. Try to avoid taking jumps too fast because if you land on the tracks too hard you’ll lose riders and points.
It’s always a surprise how much fun Digital Chocolate’s simple styled games are. There’s a reason why no game that employs full d-pad like controls as well as jump and attack fares very well on the BlackBerry, they are simply to difficult to control to be fun. I give 3D Rollercoaster Rush Jurassic 2 for BlackBerry 4 stars out of 5.
