Rack Stare wants to excite and provoke or at the very least provide a cheap thrill to those of us that are immature. It fails in all these counts.
By Gary Kearney
I've mentioned ad-nauseam in the past that I'm not the most mature gamer despite being a more mature gamer age wise. Basically I still giggle inappropriately at certain things that I should have stopped doing decades ago and I'm more than fine with that. Games that involve nudity or suggestive material still intrigue me more than they should, so when a game whose goal is to look at a cute girls boobs without getting caught I thought Finally, a game I've been training my whole life for! Unfortunately it's not nearly as much fun as an App as it is in real life.
Rack Stare, which in reading the in game documentation must have once been called Boob Stare, is the app in question and there are a few things going against it but first we'll go over the basic game-play. The game is full motion video that they claim is some sort of new technology to make it more fluid. Well it is video but I can't really vouch for the new technology part. You're looking at a man and a woman sitting next to each other on a couch. The woman, dressed in a fairly modest blouse is indeed attractive while the guy is fairly dorky looking. Both are just looking around the room with no real purpose. You control, more or less, where the guy looks by moving your finger across the screen. The goal is to look at the woman's rack for a period of time without her noticing you doing so. You are given a certain amount of time to accomplish this as there are two timers: one counts down while the other, the Stare-Meter, adds time. If you don't get enough staring done then you lose the round and each round gives you less time. You keep you finger on the woman and your dude will go all Jim Carrey in The Mask with his eyes almost popping out. The woman will be looking away and you have to keep watching her for subtle clues that she's about to look your direction. If you don't take your eyes off of her quickly enough she will figure out what you're doing and you lose the round. Sometimes she will start to look your direction but then quickly look away, so that's basically the challenge and it's not much of one. As far at being titillating, it's not. The woman is dressed more professionally than provocatively with no real cleavage showing, which seems to be a major letdown in a game whose focus is to focus on a rack. The game is sinfully short clocking in at a meager ten minutes or less so basically it's taking more time to write this review than it does to finish the game. That is not a sign of value.
