Ice Rage is the most casual and entertaining game on the Google play store. The game has similar rules to real hockey; once you gain control of the puck with your character, you have to score a goal in your opponent's net while avoiding your opponent. When your opponent has the puck, you have to try to take it away from him and score a goal. What I love most about this game is the game play and the controls. The game itself is very easy to play and it is challenging to try to take the puck away from your opponent. The controls are very easy; you have the analog stick on the left side of the screen to move your character. The A button is used to either take a shot or trip your opponent to gain control of the puck. This game has a colorful of characters to choose from, including Bike Baron, John Gore, Enviro-Bear, and Rage Face. There are characters you could also purchase for $0.99; these characters include Lumberjack, Ninja, Skeleton, and Gebetto. There are three game modes in single player. The first mode enables players to play a quick match against the computer. The second mode is a tournament where you could upgrade your player if you defeat your opponent in each round. The third mode is called Rage-off, where you have to defeat three players to survive. I found the tournament and rage-off to be the best modes. The multiplayer option in this game is very interesting; you have a choice of either a quick match or rage-off. The level of difficulty is well-balanced between easy, medium, and hard. It takes some practice before you could play the game on the hard difficulty. Overall, I think this game has great appeal, and I would play it again and again just for the fun of it.
