Simple yet addictive little racing game
Pocket Racing is one of those pass-the-time games where the simpler, the better. When you install it, you'll be welcomed by a brief tutorial -just to learn that left means turning anti-clockwise and right means clockwise- and you can start to run in any of the available tracks with any of the available cars. If you don't like any of the displayed cars, you can create one from scratch (as easy as distributing points among speed, grip, turn and acceleration). Some options require an additional lightweight download, nothing to care too much about. Records can be uploaded via Openfeint.
Don't expect 3D graphics, car or circuit licenses or complex physics. It's absolutely 2D, both graphically and in terms of gameplay. That's what makes it so addictive, anyone can play and master the game in minutes.
Measuredsoftware has looked for an unbalanced combination between modernness and playability: this game is as retro as enjoyable... And it really looks retro!
New and improved old skool top down racing, featuring:
- 8 free tracks from around the world, including Japan, UK and Italy.
- 3 car classes: Hot Hatches, Supercars & Grand Prix cars, each with 4 models to choose from.
- All new Online & Cone Challenge modes.
- All new single player Tour Mode.
- Customisable car, including gear ratios and downforce.
- The same great global leaderboards with ghost downloads.
2.0.0 HUGE update. Pocket Racing is now Pocket Racing 2, enjoy.
Note: Android 4 and above only.
Don't get me wrong it's a good game but this will not work on any tablet.... the resolution is all screwed up. Didn't work on my Asus TF101 and still doesn't work on my Asus TF300.
This is a nice game, quick and easy to grasp. Looks awful on my 10" tablet.
the first game purchased for my desire in 2010 but now, even with the vast improvements its miles behind the eight ball for 2013. refund, 4stars
The screen keeps jumping between showing the game stats in the left and the right of the screen. Not fun at all.
