Windows Phone App Review: Pako


Pako is, for all intents and purposes, Grand Theft Auto, in your pocket. The gameplay is reminiscent of Driver: You Are The Wheelman for Gameboy Color, and some of the first installments of the GTA series.

Gameplay is amazingly simple. You are driving a small car, in a small world. Your entire goal is to outrun the cops, and not crash. Seems simple, right? As soon as you start playing, you realize just how difficult of a game this can be. Control is broken down into two sides of the screen. Press the left side to turn left, and the right side to turn right. You cannot slow down. You drive, forever, until you crash.

Pako is not a new app on the Windows Phone Marketplace. The game, in one form or another, has been around since at least 2014. It is currently available on all three of the major mobile platforms, thanks to the Unity engine it is based on. There is even a global scoreboard to compete against everyone else who plays the game.

Fortunately, this decent amount of time available on multiple platforms means that the app has matured greatly from it’s humble beginnings in 2014. Multiple levels, multiple vehicles, and even an option to remove Ads makes this app a very strong game to play. It’s availability across platforms means you can even suggest it to friends and enjoy friendly competition.

If you’re looking for a simple game that has endless possibilities, Pako is a very good contender.

Here’s where to grab it.
