ACCM review

This review of Create a Car contains the following information:

App description

Within this App the player has to design a car (using preset body styles and adding accessories such as wheels) then drive it round a simple course.

Reviewers comments

Create a car allows the player to design a car using a set of pre-made bodies and then personalise these with wheels and additional accessories. The player can then start and drive their car, trying to collect points and avoid obstacles.

In designing the car there are wide range of options and so some creativity is allowed (for example you can add tank wheels or a sled base). In driving your car the interface is simple and the child has to collect energy points while avoiding obstacles. Unfortunately distance travelled is described as miles travelled.

There is some advertising in the App – with links to other Apps produced by ABC Ya.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
