I'm enjoying this lower-tier racing game, made in UE3, a lot.
Reminds me of Speed Busters: American Highways
as simply racing isn't enough to win: You always have to have an eye on your boost/heat gauge (think of F-Zero
), which doubleacts as boost and only in-game weapon.
Additionally, each race has different mandatory objectives, most focus on the heat element, like keeping a car that is constantly heating up cool or using the boost in each track sector for a certain time.
Light planning aspects, lots of colourful tracks (The graphics mix post apocalypse with cotton candy, with way-up contrast and totally overdone motion blur. Won't win any originality prizes, but it gets the mood across), alright controls. One of the better racing games of Steam's cheapo barrel bottom.
(Oh, while it aesthetically is somewhere between Speed Buster's
colourfulness and Powerslide's
track design, I haven't come across any drifting, if that is important to you.)
