Bumblebee Racing

Has anyone tried Bumblebee racing? I am curious on how it plays and if its worth buying.

You have to press on-screen buttons to move up and down. Pangea used tilt control for this in Cro-Mag Rally's underwater level and in Nanosaur 2- Why have these guys got to make it so complicated if we know it can be done by tilting?

The controls are a bit frustrating and the "racing" part of it is really slow. There's little sensation of speed. The graphics are fairly nice, though.

Nanosaur 2 is a better game to consider.

That's a shame. I was hoping it'd be fun for kids. I've had a hard time finding good kids games that can compare to Dizzy Bee.

I am not sure what type of game you or your kid/s would like, but my 5 year old daughter likes these-

iShooting Gallery
Eat Bunny Eat
Neverputt
Trace
MotionX Poker (with dice, not cards)
Alli's Jigsaw Puzzle
Animals Memory Match
Topple

See what you think of some of those if you haven't got them already.
