Auto Contra Sense is another application that first showed up on jailbroken iPhones well before the App Store. It has, since then, gotten a lot of polish and become a more full featured game. This is a different sort of driving game.

You are presented with a top down view reminiscent of Spy Hunter or Bump and Jump. You must, by tilting the device, swerve left and right, forward and backward, to avoid cars coming toward you. You can collect tokens along the way for extra points. Your goal is to get to the end of the current level without crashing.

One of the things that I find annoying about this rather hard game is that a single little touch of another car counts as a crash. Perhaps I’m just used to playing other racing games where you can check other cars, not sure. But this seems overly strict. Another thing that I find odd is that the levels are static. Meaning that the cars are in the same order on the level each time you play it. This kind of transforms this into a memory game and less of a racing game.

I find this game enjoyable, but repetitive and too hard. While I appreciate the unique take the developer has taken on a driving game, it seems a little to strict for my tastes.
