It's sort of like those games where water is flowing and you have to twist the blocks to form a continuous pipe so the water can get out. But considerably less enjoyable than that.

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

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.

A horrible Pipe Dream-wannabe, for people with far too much time on their hands. If you can get past the tutorial, you are far more patient than I am. The sole saving grace, for me, was getting the game in a bundle, which makes it ~free. Still not worth free. Avoid at any cost. Doesn't even amuse as a bad game.

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

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.

Do NOT buy "this" or you will regret this. What a shameful port of mobile game! Not worth even one cent.
There's a lot of good puzzle games on steam, so if you're a fan of this genre - continue searching for a title worth your money!
Gameplay is boring, sounds are annoying and game is not optimized for PC. I don't understand why there's "RACER" word in title - I think just to misslead potential customer.

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.

KAMGUSTA's mini Review

I don't really see a point in this game: it's a racing game where you don't race, but do move the road... A race puzzle game without control on the car and without opponents... I can list a lot better alternatives if you want to race or do puzzles... Avoid!

Score 4/10

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.

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.
