Mindlessly Addicting Fun with Scribble Racer
Android isn’t only about customization, open development and the modding / flashing / tweaking. It’s a medium for relaxation and entertainment, be it watching movies or streaming your favorite television shows, or in this case, a bit of gaming.
XDA Forum Member Wolfgang Knecht developed Scribble Racer, an unbelievably addicting yet simple game that a gamer of any level can enjoy. Designed with a very aesthetically pleasant theme of cartoons on grid paper, the goal of the game is to guide your finger, or S Pen for users of Galaxy Note and Note II, through a winding track that scrolls faster and faster the further you get into the level, allowing the user to collect various fruits, candy, coins and stars along the way increase the points you score for that level. Scribble Racer has three difficulty settings, easy, normal and hard; and they differentiate themselves with slower and faster scrolling speeds. Players can also upload their scores and view the leader board through Scoreloop. Kudos must also be given to Wolfgang Knecht for winning third prize with the app in the 2012 Samsung Smart App Challenge.
Scribble Racer is a mindlessly addicting game and enjoyable by anyone, being a well polished, well designed game with simple yet addicting gameplay. Available for free to users of Android versions 2.2 and newer, make sure to head over to the original thread for more details.
