"Bite the dust"

Reviewed by / Jun 01, 2012

CarDust is an aerial view racing game

Pro version is ad-free and includes: tournament mode, three new cars and four new tracks.

Have you ever played Micro Machines or Speed Demons? Well, Cardust gameplay is similar: a bird's eye view racing game. However, CarDust brings some added-value features.

First off, cars you can choose among aren't brand-new stunning racing cars but bizarre ones, age-old resembling vehicles. This makes it even funnier: looking at those wrecks competing against each other is a great spectacle.

There different game modes: QuickRace with up to 5 AI opponents and Time Trial enabling you to race your own "ghost" or compete against world's best driver. Tournament mode is just available in the PRO version. You can submit your scores on online leaderboards provided by OpenFeint. there are lots of achievements waiting to be unlocked.

Steer the car with a screenpad: right/left button and a central button for braking and reverse gear. Intuitive, although we're missing also tilt controls, it would fit with this kind of game. 3D graphics are rich and we didn't notice any lag even with medium-end devices.

Entertaining and challenging. Recommendable.

Developer's original description available here
Leave 'em in the dust!

From desolate wastelands to abandoned post-industrial suburbia, tire-burning dust eaters come together to risk life and limb in the CarDust challenge. Glory, riches and frequent oil changes await you on these inhospitable tracks!

* androidzoom.com: "Entertaining and challenging. Recommendable." 4/5 (Great App)
* idroidplay.com: "Car Dust is a fun driving game through and through. With six cars there is a little something for each person with different tastes and strategies." 8/10
* android-games.com: "CarDust is well worth a look and you can check it out on Google Play."

Compete with these hard-boiled veterans in multiple locations to win the CarDust Tournament. Test your mettle in six battered, bizarre, age-old vehicles trying to cross the finish line in front of all others. Employ unusual, highly experimental (and probably illegal) technologies to gain an edge on your opponents! Race against the ghosts of the past - either yours or those of other racers (through Scoreloop).

This package includes, among others:

- five peculiar vehicles remotely resembling cars (plus an unlockable sixth vehicle!)

- five richly featured 3D tracks - desolate desert, abandoned factory, outback town, ruined dockyard and mountain ridge (plus an unlockable sixth track!)

- never-seen-before time warp and position switching powerups

- two casual race modes: QuickRace with up to 5 AI opponents, and TimeTrial enabling you to race your own “ghost” - or compete against world's best driver

- Big Tournament mode: race on four different tracks and score the most points to unlock extra content

- 3 different cameras, 4 different steering modes, possibility to race both in PORTRAIT and LANDSCAPE modes

- over 30 achievements waiting to be unlocked (including a very special secret achievement!)

- full Scoreloop integration with leaderboards and TimeTrial “ghost competition” with the best player currently out there!

Will you accept the CHALLENGE?

    I wish i had my dollar back. The steering sucks. It stops responding during the race. So what's the use in racing if you have no control. Save your money and go buy a pack of gum.
