Looking for a classic racing game to remind you of the good old days of the 90’s? With pixelated graphics, noise and a screen that reminds you of the good old TV’s and CRT Monitors, we bring you Adrenaline Rush – a car racing game for android phones and tablets, now available for FREE!
Well as simple as the car game it is, it has it’s own short story. You’re in a classic car, we don’t know for sure what it is, we think its a Ford car, for some reason, but if you like another car, it can be the one which you want as well, so if you like Lamborghini, Porsche or an other car that was popular in the late 80’s and 90’s it can be that one. The important fact it is, that you are on a strange road with two bands, and your car runs wild along the road. You can’t stop the car for any reason, and your speed goes up and up and as you go through the levels, cars will run beside you fast and faster, at one moment you will also see all kinds of crazy police cars drive along with you. The only way to save yourself is by driving the car until you get to the final level, which for us also remains a mistery.
What is the object of the game?
Well, first of all we have to let you know that is an endless game, so you’ll drive your car as long as you can, more than that, you’ll have some achievements that you can complete, which are quite fun, by the way, and some quite easy to unlock. But that’s not all, we’ve got inspired by the game Flappy bird, and the main idea is to have fun, getting high scores and comparing them with your friends, see who can get more far in the game and also score higher. So if your kind of looking for a Flappy bird car game, this might be the one that you’ll like to play, hopefully it won’t be that frustrating and will somehow be more fun.
Game design and features
Even if we’re in 2014 we wanted to go back in the past and create a simple 90’s game design. We truly like this game graphics, however there is always time for improvement, the pixaled graphics, noise, and other effects that get our game to look more classic it’s truly an accomplishment.
The music and sound effects are most of them 8bit, so that it helps us with the retro themed game, the sounds are quite fun, hopefully not to quiet and not to loud, just a few sound effects so that the player will have a great experience playing this awesome car game for android.
How you play the game
Despite of the fact we could have used the accelerometer to make the car move, we’ve chosen to let the player tap on left or right for the car to move in that way, more than that, the player will have to pay attention for how much the car would move in both ways, cause sometime it can get a little tricky.
I think this is quite enough about it’s design and features, if you want to find our more, leave a comment and we’re happy to talk about the development steps, programs, optimisation, code and all that it is that made this android application.
Here’s a short video preview of the game, (didn’t quite payed that much attention to the car in the left for a moment, and well…).
