Ice Rage is a cute and highly playable ice hockey game from busy Google Play Store developers HeroCraft. You can play either against a slew of quirky characters or against a friend in frantic one-on-one hockey action. There are several game options and difficulty levels and even tournaments to play through. You can select different characters to play and while the aesthetic is a bit cartoony, the action comes thick and fast.
Controls couldn’t be simpler; on the left hand side there is an on-screen thumb controller while on the left you have an action button. When in possession of the puck, the action button serves to shoot, the longer you press it the greater the power. When not in possession it works as an aggressive tackle button. Controlling your character on the ice can take a little practice- as can shooting, but once you master the controls it’s a great game to play.
I think the only concern I would have about this, as a paid game, the longevity of it. Once you’re over the novelty of the characters, the quirky-yet-fun gameplay and the tournaments… there’s not much left to keep you playing. Perhaps a saving grace for the game is the multi-player mode, where you can play against friends, using the same device. Awkward on a phone, better on a tablet, the two-player mode is both fun and competitive.

If you enjoy sports games, in particular ice hockey, this is an enjoyable little romp that is fun to play, especially against friends. The single player mode is very limited however because, once you complete the tournaments, there’s not much for you.
I like the fact that there are various characters to play with and against, this gives the game a novelty factor which is good fun too. You can pay for extra character packs (yes, the developer did just make you pay for the game and now wants you to pay more, which is a bit of a slap in the face) but these do not make gameplay easier to enhance the experience very much.
The game is addictive, but once you learn how to control your character accurately and complete the short tournaments, the game loses its fizz very quickly.
Graphics are very crisp, characters cartoony but well created. All the animations, menus and interfaces are also very well done.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The game offers excellent music and sound effects which makes the game feel far more engrossing.
