Another title featured at the Apple TV reveal in September, Crossy Road is one of those games perfect for holding the remote in one hand and a beer in the other.
Your job is to take your character from the animal world and guide him across busy highways, train tracks and fast-flowing waters. Your top score is judged by forward steps you manage to make before you’re splattered out of nowhere by the oncoming traffic or lost in the deadly rapids.
A simple click to hop forward and a swipe to dodge obstacles is all you need, but the key is to judge how many forward steps you can take at a time and then to hammer that trackpad until you reach momentary safety. Pussy-footing around one step at a time is going to turn you into road kill with near-immediate effect
Also, if you’re giving the multiplayer a spin, be sure to push your unsuspecting friends in front of traffic.
With visuals that channel the blocky 8-bit spirit of Minecraft, the beauty of Crossy Road is in its sheer simplicity and the absolute need to have just one more try…
