I do like the game... it is an enjoyable puzzle game. That said, it's a mediocre iOS port that has given me some issues already. Note that the game is free on the AppStore (iPad and iPhone), but with in-app purchases. Wish I searched more about this before purchase.

Horrible game. I got it in a bundle for free, which is about what it is worth. Terrible graphics - no resolution options and no full screen. On my high resolution monitor everything is tiny.

Racer 8 is...

To be honest I can think of very little to say about Racer 8. It's so devoid of any identity that playing it hardly felt like I was interacting with a game at all. It's anonymous in the way that leaves you bored and begging the question why you ever decided to boot it up to begin with.

The gist of what you'll be doing is rotating road tiles to guide your little race car through checkpoints and finally the end marker. And that's pretty much it. Levels roll into each other with the presence and distinction of an antisocial mouse, meekly existing until you grind your way through to the next one which seems to be almost identical to the level you just played.

I'll come out and say that I wasn't able to keep myself awake long enough to play through the entirety of Racer 8, so take this review as coming from someone that's only tasted a portion of the game. But if what I didn't see is anything like what I did, then I'll rest easy knowing I got out early enough before my brain melted from prolonged exposure to extreme doses of monotony.

aside from the port issues... it's just boring. I like the whimsical graphics and style but the gameplay is very bleh.
And using the word "racer" in the title is a misnomer.
