This app lets you get involved in ongoing games of the PC and console cult game “Watch_Dogs”. In the two game modes “Race” and “Free Ride” you can annoy the player by obstructing his path, or, you can play yourself and complete 26 missions. You have the opportunity to collect XP and skill points, which let you improve your equipment and abilities.

In the game Watch_Dogs a super computer of the government is spying on everything and everyone in Chicago. However, the hacker Aidan Pearce is able to gain access to the computer data and is now chasing his opponent through the city. With the help of an additional program you take on the role of the police, chase the players by car and helicopter, initiate roadblocks and change traffic lights. From a bird’s eye view you observe how the players handle the unexpected obstacles, or you look for a way to escape yourself.

Conclusion:
The auxiliary device, which lets you get involved in the Watch_Dogs events, is not only exciting for seasoned players. You don’t need the PC or console game, but get direct access via an Uplay-Service account. The graphics are not as sophisticated and the bird’s eye view of the street scene is a bit confusing. Nevertheless, the iPad delivers a good overview.
