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.
