About This Game

He got close a few times, but never won the Trashpit Championship. As skilled behind the wheel as your father was, there was something missing. Maybe it was instinct, maybe ferocity, or the hummingbird beat reaction times that success on the track demands. Regardless, his racing days are over; that’s why he gave you the keys to his old truck and a little money to get started. The future is now yours and you have a family legacy to uphold.

Stunning effects, amazing fire and hard racing with bullets - is that what you were craving for so long? Prepare to listen to the burn-in noise of madly spinning tires at the start. Just get in a car and try to survive on the track. Be quick, be smart, be fearless and the Trashpit Cup will be yours! Just don't forget to take a good minigun and couple of mines, the competition is anything but friendly.

- 16 Race tracks.

There's quite a few better top down racers on steam already to bother with this game. It's pretty unpolished and too average even at its best to stand out from the field.

Try it out if you got it the bundle like I did or don't. No need to waste time on this.

This game feels like a unpolished mobile game. The first vehicles are kinda slow, and it's difficult at first to make money, or buy any cool gear. Then you get the buggy.. That's when the game goes bad;

You can fly so high, your car will bump into the sky and fall down. Or hit a pylon at the wrong angle, and your flying off.. in the opposite direction you where going. It becomes basically a surfer game.. with a car.

This wouldn't be so bad, but the physics haven't been fixed. So it's easy to accidently fly off the course track. Unlike the AI, you do not get a respawn. Instead. You hit escape to see the menu, and quit the game at last place. My other gripes are the following;
-No Multiplayer
-Not enough tracks (You do 3 different tracks that I know of.. that are inverted, or slightly changed to make the 16 race challenge)
-Not enough vehicles/weapons
-Expensive for a 2 hour game.
-Some aspects of game not balanced (Lv 3 Nitro = Insta Win, Lv 5 Shotgun = Insta Kill, Mines are tough at lower level, but once your in the dune buggy.. completely underpowered.. useless!)

Suggestion to customers;
A game called "RC Cars" is alot more developed, and was kind of what I was expecting when I purchased this game.. Might be better to try that out before playing this game.

Suggestion to devs;
Take a look at the Road Rash series with how they did upgrades, included plot lines, actual characters with weapons midgame. (Reboot Title: "Road Redemption")
Another one is called Skithin, which was similarly pretty awesome game to play. (Had a storyline as well.)
The last one that was pretty cool, was called Renegade Ops. They used voice overs, and comic stills to create the storyline between each mission.

I really, really, really tried to like this game.

It has some possibly redeeming qualities, however these 'possible' redeeming qualities are exactly what's is missing:

1. It is boring
2. Controls are difficult, unresponsive and confusing
3. It's harder than what it should be
4. Why, why, why no full controller support

There are better top down racers

2/10 - avoid.

An okay game.
The game is actually fun on easy. However (and this is a BIG however) On hard (as there are only two dificulty levels) The game become pretty much unplayable. The games so-called realistic car physics make the game unplayable. Steering is lousy and unresposive at the best of times and this becomes more of a problem given that your vehicle gets hung up on every sudden change in the course. If you get turned around (and you will be a lot) You'll most likely of lost whatwver lead you had by the time you start to face the right direction.
I actually had to drive backwards for 3/4 of a lap just to come in 3rd. If you get knocked off the track (durring a pile up on a corner most of the time) you wont be able to get back on it. and killing yourself with your own mines won't help either. you can drive until you fall off the map entirly (which wont kill you by the way) the only way to get back to the game is to quit. There is no retry on hard so you'll automatically get 4th for that race. If you are looking for a casual racing game I'm sure you can find a better game elsewere. or at least one that dosen't feel like a like self abuse.
But like I said before. On Easy. The game is sorta fun.

One of the worst games I've ever played. Short, silly AI, very bad handling, no Multiplayer and so on. The game costs 9€ (!), although it isn't worth even one.
