The best part of the game is the unreal racing. Instead of using realistic physics, efforts are centered on making a fun and entertaining game full of jumps, moments of flight, smashing objects and nitro boosts, as if cars were driven by stuntmen. This way, zipping around all the tracks, smashing into objects and other competitors, or jumping from impossible heights is at the core of this game.
Modes of playing
The app is divided into several modes of playing. You can try the single-player mode or play with more people. The single-player mode is divided into seasons. Each season has twelve different tracks and different modes. There are eight seasons in total, and amongst these you'll find Welcome, Street Rules, Injection, Elite, and more. They are not available from the beginning; you must unlock tracks them by winning stars. The only track you will start with is Welcome, and you must get as many stars as you can from it, to unlock the rest.
As for the modes inside the seasons, you can play six different modes: Classic, Versus, Elimination, Gate Drift, Knockdown and Infected. Classic is the main mode, and here your only task is to reach the finish in first place to win three stars. The Versus mode is quite similar, but you will compete against a real player, and you must be the first or you will not win a star. Elimination is a time trial race in which you must avoid being the last when the clock reaches zero. In Gate Drift, you must drift through some gates that will appear on the road, and in Knockdown you will have limited time to knock down as many opponents as you can. Finally, in Infected you must try to be infected as much time as possible since the infection boosts your vehicle. Other vehicles will catch your infection if they hit you, and you will lose your boost.
