Am I Going Down? is a Somewhat Unsettling App that Calculates the Likelihood of a Plane Crash

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Out there in the world, there are many people who are nervous while flying. Usually this nervousness isn’t due to the technical wonder that is a massive tube of metal with wings managing to stay up in the air, but rather the chance that said tube doesn’t reach its final destination. In order to help people understand the slim chances of the second scenario, Vanilla Pixel has released Am I Going Down?.

The app uses publicly available statistics to calculate the odds of any flight crashing, with a vast majority of odds coming out reassuringly high, and is meant to assure people that air travel is statistically very safe. Well, as long as you don’t intend to catch the New York JFK to London Heathrow trip on a British Airways Boeing 747-400 every day for the next 25,433 years, in which case one of those flights may end a bit roughly for you.

Am I Going Down? is available to download now for $0.99.

Burnout Crash Coming To iOS

Console gamers will almost certainly have heard of the Burnout franchise. It’a a racing game series that focuses on causing havoc and destruction much more so than keeping to a tight racing line. Experienced through various different methods, the latest instalment is that of Burnout Crash!, recently released on Xbox Live Arcade and Sony’s PSN and now announced for iOS.

The iOS release of Burnout Crash! is set to allow players to ‘wreak as much havoc as possible by causing massive multi-car pile ups for mega-points’. Players can use Crashbreaker explosions and in-air aftertouch controls to steer their wreck into oncoming traffic, just like other games in the series. To reinforce the high score aiming side of the game, there’ll also be Autolog support to enable players to connect, compare and compete with their friends.

Using intuitive taps and swipes to steer vehicles and trigger explosions, Burnout Crash! should provide an ideal and fun experience across three game modes, 18 traffic junctions and six different locations. Children of the 1980s will be particularly excited to hear the 80s based soundtrack featuring the likes of Vanilla Ice and Gloria Estefan.

No set release date has yet been given for Burnout Crash! but holiday season suggests it’ll be before the end of the year. We’ll keep up to date on any developments.
