Tried to turn slightly, did a full 90 degree turn.
The story line is really enthrawling!
I love how customisable the graphics are!
The graphics are truely amazing!
Its a real challenge! I love the lack of tutorial!
The lack of a controls menu makes the game really hard and challenging!
Physics where non existant making the game have a really unique taste!

10/10- Would win a race by driving off a mountain and getting killed again!

ok So I got my copy for about a buck.. it could be worth the nine dollars it is marketed, as long as you are using a steam controller.. I am not even kidding.. this game is a real ♥♥♥♥♥♥ port that doesnt even have controler support(without using something like joy to key, or controller companion, which will feel honestly pretty jerky..,) and it leaves you too figure out the controlls from someone else.. or on your own.. however, once I found out the controls I binded them up useing analog emulatiion. then it started to feel like a decent little arcade game.. for the life of me I can not get the motion controls to work... but all on all this game felt fine with the joystick.. for anyone wanting to just hop on and play, ill be uploading my controll scheme once i have played the eloted amount of time to allow for upload.

Edit: this is also probably a great game(once you et it set up lol) for kids too, not to challenging and very arcady.

Controls (posted from another review, I cant find who it was):

arrow keys= move (obviously)

"A" key = slide left

"S" key = slide right

ctrl key = boost or nitroux however you wanna call it

space key = rockets

"B" key = look behind you

"R" key = respawn

"comma/less than sign" key = is mines or bombs

"ALT" = machine guns or rockets (depending on the car)


Hopefully this has helped you for anyone who owns the game or plans to buy it. Enjoy! =)

Got the game for free.

Started it.

Screen went black.

Graphics downscaled to Atari 2600 32p resolution.

Finally got to main menu.

ButtRock.mp3 blairing.

Started "Story Mode."

"What the ♥♥♥♥ am I doing?"

Find out there's literally no story.

Tried turning left.

Literally made 90 degree turn left going full speed, yet still going forward.

"What the ♥♥♥♥ am I doing?"

No map.

"Where the ♥♥♥♥ am I going?"

A.I. Seems just as lost as I am.

Can't figure out how to shoot gun, because no tutorial.

No menu for controls.

"What the ♥♥♥♥ am I doing?"

Somehow won the "race" in 1st place by driving off a cliff.

Quit after first race. Felt like a good place to never come back again.


0/10, no trading cards.

This game has to be one of, if not the worst racing game i have played. The options only give you 2 things you can see or edit. Music volume and.. You guessed it! Game volume. No place does it say the controls because they didnt bother. The graphics belong in 1998 and even back then this would look terrible. You have a so called 'Story Mode' where its just like all other damn races or challenges. Race win, run out of the map multiple times, move around in mid-air if you turn the wheel.
And on and on. Disgrace.

Got this game in a $2 bundle, and I still feel like this was a rip-off.

Kind of feel like if I was paid to play this, I'd still be coming out behind.

This is just bad.

The kind of bad where you buy one of those cheap $5 japanese fleshlight knockoffs, get semi-drunk and decide it would be funny to actually try it out, then after you finish, you find yourself holding your DNA in what amounts to a toiletpaper tube in your hand and looking at where you are in your life that that just happened.

Don't shame yourself by buying this game.

Just say no.

There is no Manual, no option to see Controls (Key Bindings) in the game's menu. Ugly graphics, absurd physics. I like such kind of games very much. For example, I like very much the game "Gas Guzzlers Extreme", though the "GGE" has its own defects, but I really enjoy "Gas Guzzlers Extreme".
It's a pity that there are too little such games. And I wish more games of such type but of HIGH QUALITY. "Glacier 3: The Meltdown" is the worst game of such sort.

This game is possibly the worst racing game i've ever played and no i havent played big rigs over the road racing but the cars are slippery yes i do get that its on ice but when its not on ice the cars control like they are on ice, im not entirely sure what A and D do apart from move the camera east or west abit the only weapon i could figure out using is missile which sucks by pressing space and you move the car with the arrow keys which i really like but i wish that there was an option to 1: change the resolution 2: change the controls and 3: an STORY LINE since there is a story mode but there is no story line oh and that leads me onto 4: A ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ TUTORIAL explaining the controls and what each button corresponds to apart from guess and most of the time its luck hell i dont think i've ever played a racing game this bad sure there's trucker but at least that has a tutorial and changeable controls but this the only things in the options menu is music and sound effects which get changed apart from that its just luck if you get a control and im not playing it again not even for £1,000,000,000,000,000 or $1,000,000,000,000,000 hell i would rather play E.T on the atari 2600 than this piece of crap and the fact that i got it for free through indiegala email adress they give you game thing it still feels like i diserve a refeund on this.

"Bob Slayer’s best kept secret, the illegal Glacier Races"

This should of stayed a secret and been illegal to be on Steam. The controls are horrendous with no option to change them. (I hit every button looking for the gun). The NPC's don't care about winning, they only care about blowing you up or running you off the mountain. You could still be at the start line and the NPC will turn around, drive back and annoy you lol. Driving straight consists of 360's, it's quite funny. The graphics in the screenshots don't look bad, but when you play, it's like a cardboard box. The annoying ambulance sound at the start of the game will explode your head. It was a free game, but I still wouldn't recommend it.

First impressions: http://www.cublikefoot.com/glacier-3-the-meltdown-first-impressions/

Glacier 3: The Meltdown is your typical "destructive" racing game. It's nothing too special, but it did a fantastic job keeping me entertained during my first play session.

Nothing much can be said about what makes Glacier 3 special from other, similar games. Like I said, it is pretty typical. The game features eight vehicles to choose from and a variety of tracks that can be driven on. There are several power-ups spread throughout each of the tracks, each granting you some kind of advantage. I stuck with missiles the entire time. They act like the red shells in Mario Kart, homing in on enemies (most of the time).

The game's physics, however, were very amusing. The vehicles each made very sharp turns, very easily, at high speeds. I also bounced off a rock at one point, like a basketball, landing back on the track. That was quite fun. The AI beat me everytime, aside from one track, where I went all-out with missiles, so the game can be a bit challenging at times, but nothing that a good missile or two can't solve.

There's not much else to say about Glacier 3. If I were to attempt to justify its price, I would pin that on how ridiculous the racing is (physics, weapons, etc.). It is fun, but has some technical issues that I wish had been addressed, such as the resolution, which is locked at some low resolution.

Oh boy , where should i start from?
First of all - there are no other settings beside Music and FX volume and FX volume is turned off by default. The menu music is mainly consisted in 2 house-ish tracks, obviously cut-off of a random set with bad quality. I don't even want to talk about the controlls and the overal in-game experience!

Would not recommend!
