The endless world in Retrowawe setting where you'll burn tyres of the car to the strongest tracks of Retowawe/Synthwawe composers.
Neon landscapes with mountain chains and beaches will be your companions in the fated race.


If the car engine stops working, she will die and her blood will be on your hands!


Experience the atmosphere of the world inspired by 80s with their neon lights, VHS tapes and synth pop. Buckle up!
See you on the fluorescent road in your last ride towards the sunset!

if you're into synth tunes and retro 80s / electronica stuff, it's worth the price of admission, if nothing else than to hear some groovy tunes and play a very simple racing game. Unfortunately the game beyond a generic time counter and some drifting / jump-hitting there isn't much purpose, unfortunately there is an overheat meter that limits you from just flooring it constantly (ala Excite Bike, or something of the like...) which tends to both emit a somewhat annoying noise when you accelerate, and also limit how much you can just be barreling along listening to the tunes.

All that aside, for the price and considering it's a bit of a what you see is what you get kind of game, what is presented is well-made.

It'd be nice for mobile. It's an endless driving game with nice design and soundtrack. The controls are kind of ok and the presentation needs more polishing. It needs more cars...maybe....

The visual style and the soundtrack is great, everything else...well, not so much. Particularly, the game is very empty and you get bored after a couple of hours. Alright, the game is very cheap, but still...not recommended.

simplistic fun arcade driving game inspired by outrun, with bright neon 80s-ish visuals and a killer soundtrack, honestly it gets old after about half an hour or so but i can see myself playing it from time to time to wind down.

Graphics are okay, music is good too, but the game is endless, just infinite driving. I'm leaving good review just for trading cards.

OutDrive is simply "all style, no substance". The synthwave aesthetic, graphics and music make the game look promising from the trailer, however, those are probably the only redeeming qualities it has. The gameplay is minimal to say the least - holding an arrow between two points on a graph bar by pressing down the "Shift" key and either crashing into a wall or releasing it once in a while to not overfill it. Going fast isn't a requirement either - driving at a snails pace while maintaining the arrow is also completely acceptable. There are pretty much no limitations or any actual challenge besides that, and on top of that there's only a few pieces of scenery put together into an endless track, most of which you see within about 15 minutes of playing. All of that mixed together with unresponsive menus, slow loading times, weird controls and handling make it hard to recommend it as a game. It could have had potential to be better with any kind of incentive to play, but all it's worth amounts to free trading cards.

Requesting a refund and waiting for Powerdrive 2000, Stealing a concept like this to try and make a quick buck and royaly ♥♥♥♥ing it up does NOT deserve a good review.

0/10 Do NOT waste your money.

Is this a joke? The description of the game is longer the actual game.

All you do is seriously drive around one track for as long as you can without any obstacles other than the occasional roadblock with a ramp and a gunship that spawns every 8 minutes getting in the way. That's it. That's the whole game. The bullets don't even do anything! They're not even a threat! All they do is make the road randomly spawn debris in your face which comes with no warning. There's no other hazards... just hard turns, roadblocks and a gunship. Pitiful.

The only good thing this game has going for it is a nice aesthetic and some pretty good music. $3 for literally 8 minutes of gameplay... 13 if you actually can make one full lap without falling asleep. Literally get the ♥♥♥♥ out.

Perhaps I'm being harsh on, say, a college student's final project for school but this isn't something you charge people for. Nitronic Rush was a final project for school and that had more content and was released free. This is a 99 cent mobile game AT BEST. Also, don't copy Powerdrive 2000. You're not Powerdrive 2000. And you're not going to ride off it's kickstarter success.

If you want a game with more in-depth gameplay and content check out Distance (the same team who made Nitronic Rush).

UPDATE 2/26: DENVER has recently updated the game's description to say this game was created just for the sake of music in order to save face. Yes, the music is decent, but don't be fooled, the game is stil garbage. Do not fall for it.

There's a lot to be desired with this game. It's "what you see is what you get." The game is an 80's inspired endless driver, like what you'd might get on the App store honestly. There is not much to the game at all. The driving feels clunky, but really easy to get accustomed to. Unfortunately the game is locked to 30 FPS and makes the quality of the game look even less.

The game is priced at $1.79 at the time of writing this (2/22/16), and I can say for this price it's okay, but personally I would not recommend it. You will get a hour or so of playtime out of it and become bored quickly because there isn't much more than what is offered. I can see this game working a lot better on the phone rather than a PC game release. Just 80's and driving.. But hey, if you like the music you're better off just going buying it off the different artists' bandcamps.

OutDrive, in one way, is an amazing achievement, and DENVER has a lot to be proud of with their creation. I mean that. The screenshots simply do not do this game any level of justice, as there's actually a lot of varied scenary to keep things fresh and thus never feels like the "empty sunset highway" some people have voiced concern over before buying. The combination of audio/visual elements delivers THE best 80's/neon/VHS/vaporwave experience I've ever seen in a video game, hands down.There is so much attention put into everything, from the tastefully low polygon count on most of the assets, to the bloom that glows softly off of the neon and the post-processing filter across the screen, it all ensures that this game feels like a 3D interactive vaporwave poster art. As a work of art, it's meticulously crafted and feels SO good to play for the first few minutes.

Alas, the art style is not the aforementioned achievement displayed in this product, because it's just ripping off of the upcoming Kickstarter-funded game Power Drive 2000. Seriously, look up some screenshots and try not to feel insulted on behalf of PD2k's developers. Even if you're someone who's really into the whole vaporwave/vhs aesthetic, this game is not worth the price of admission as it's just a petty clone/cashgrab feeding itself off of the Power Drive hype. I want to make it clear that I do not hate this game for not being Power Drive, because I had no idea what Power Drive was until after I played this game and read some of the user reviews. I have zero attachment to that project, and my opinion is not in comparison to that game, but how the game stands on its own merit in a world where it was actually an original idea.

The problem with OutDrive is that, beyond stimulating your eyes and ears, there is NOTHING left. At its most basic level, the game mechanics are actually quite good, which makes it even more confusing that nothing interesting was done with them. Driting around sharper turns is fun, hitting the ramp between roadblocks is fun, balancing speed with trying not to overheat keeps you engaged as you drive. And yet, absolutely none of these things provide you with any real challenge. My FIRST run in the game lasted 28 minutes and the only reason I stopped was because I was BORED, not because I failed. Despite having a meter that forces you to go fast but not too fast, I spun out, came to a COMPLETE halt, hit the (unlimited) boost, and was back on my way without penalty. It's borderline insulting.

There are so many great ideas here that just don't do anything meaningful. If you're driving through a city (which looks ♥♥♥♥ing SICK, by the way) you may have to dodge cross-traffic or some of the lanes may have a car driving alongside you. It would have been so easy to use this as an opportunity to challenge the players environmental awareness as they have to watch the road ahead of them, and dodge the cars beside them, and yet these other cars are separated by wide distance, predictable, and easily avoided. Likewise, there is a helicopter that shows up once in a while to fire bullets at you, which literally just bounce off your car when you do get hit, there is no consequence for this whatsoever. Sometimes, the chopper will try missiles instead, which hit the road ahead of you, bringing up chunks of pavement that you may crash into if you're not careful. While these missiles are the hardest part of the game, they are by no means a threat, considering even if you get hit by a big slab of the road and find yourself turned 180 degrees, all you have to do is quickly press that boost, turn around, and you're on your way before your speed meter ever reaches the bottom.

If you want to jam out to some downtempo 80's-esque electronic synth music while dining on a visual feast, go for it, but do not expect the game to challenge you in any way. It's an endless runner that somehow screwed up the most necessary part of the genre: losing. And that's one hell of an achievement to be proud of.
