Got this game for free from IndieGala.com for Christmas, farmed the cards, sold for profit.
-10/10 would do again.

To be honest, it is not worth anything more besides steam cards.

Racer 8 is a game that I can't recommend at all because:
- you must be patient with this game, is REALLY BORING

Anyway...
- is a method to banish boredom, not for all of you
- is a simply game
- have trading cards

My negative feedback is given by the boredom offered by a "racing" game.

Many people hate this game but I do like it. I did get the game for free and think that it should always be free because the game is not worth it's price. But if got free then this is fun time eater with simple task to follow and definately no stress in it at all. Perfect for when you simply don't feel like thinking at all about anything.

Racer 8 is a casual, racing puzzler where you rotate the race track, which is divided into tiles, to reach the end of the race. There are a few constraints presented that make this task more difficult, like a fuel meter, changing weather patterns & tiles that change on their own, albeit with prior notice. There are power-ups that you can obtain that will benefit you along the race, like mitigating your rate of speed & granting more fuel. There is also a shop where you can purchase useful boosts at the beginning of each race, with the coins granted from winning races.

Racer 8 does nothing particularly well. The graphics, gameplay & sound are all very generic. There isn’t anything to hold your interest longer than a couple minutes at a time.

The only thing going for Racer 8 is that it is unique in the Puzzler genre, at least on the Steam platform. There isn’t anything remotely similar to it.

This puzzle race game is awesome. Upon starting the game at first it looks boring but when you start playing and keep crashing, you realize that you are already addicted to it. Nice Race Car Puzzle. You will never regret ownin this game.

I can't even put my familiar stars up to rate this thing. It's NOT a racing game that most gamers are used to. It's nothing but a poor cell phone game. Don't waste your money buying this thing. That's why many of us got it FREE. Because most of the time you get FREE stuff because it's just that BAD. Cynical? No, I'm truthful. Some may really like this. I really doubt too many though.

Stunning graphics and intense gameplay, a truly euphoric experience. This game helped me through tough times and cured my leprosy. However it appears to be a bit of a DotA clone so I'm only going to r8 it 88/88.
