Everyone appreciates a good racing game. Likewise, most also enjoy blowing stuff up. When the two are married into one game, one would think the result would be amazing. Unfortunately, that's not always the case. Let's take Polarbit's new title Cracking Sands as an example – the screenshots look good, the video is promising, but the game itself... well, that's something else altogether. Now, I'm not saying it's a bad game, because it's not. It works well and it looks good – I was just bored within the first race. Perhaps I've become jaded after years of playing different Android games.
Polarbit invites users to prepare for the ride of their lives, bringing the sequel to Reckless Racing to the Android Market just two days ago. The game keeps pace with its predecessor, bringing "the best powerslides in the world," online multiplayer, and customizable control layouts.
Reckless Racing 2 offers several different gameplay modes, including career mode, arcade mode, single event, and multiplayer. Career mode offers a variety of cups to compete in, while arcade mode allows players to choose from an array of tracks. I found the single event mode a refreshing addition, as it enables quick pick-up play without requiring the player to invest a significant amount of time.
The other day, Polarbit released a new game called Tank Riders, and I was thoroughly excited to get my hands on my own tiny tank. I mean, who doesn't want to control a miniature tank and blow things up with miniature artillery? Nobody, that's who.
First Things First
At first glace, this game seems to have all of the action-packed fun you'd need to last a while. Polarbit boasts rich and vibrant graphics, attacking hordes of bad guys in single-player campaign mode, playing against other tiny tank riders in online multiplayer, and downloadable content that will keep the game fresh and exciting.
If there is one thing that has been on my to-do lost for the biggest part of my life, it's blow stuff up with a tiny tank. Since that's highly unlikely to happen in the physical world, I can now turn to Tank Riders from Polarbit to fulfill this lifelong dream in digital space.
As you can see, Tank Riders is a damn good-looking game. The environments are rich, graphics are nice, gameplay looks smooth, and, best of all, you get to blow stuff up. Shoot things, toss bombs at your foes, and wreak havoc with missiles and other heavy artillery.
Game dev Polarbit recently released a new offering to the Android Market called Reckless Getaway, where you play the part of a wheelman after a bank robbery. Carrying the same kill-or-be-killed vibe as Reckless Racing, it's your job to get away from the fuzz any way you see fit -- including throwing them into oncoming traffic, walls, or whatever other element you can find.
The game features 17 all-new tracks, simple controls, realistic physics and controls, as well as unlockable levels and games modes.
Reckless Getaway will set you back $2.99, and you can grab it by hitting the widget below.
I love drifting. As I tuck myself into bed, I can be heard to whisper "Good night, Dorikin". So when I read that Reckless Racing, so long anticipated on the Droid Forums gaming section, had finally been released, I immediately bought it from the market.
My first impressions weren't particularly positive. The country hick theme (RR was formerly known as Deliverace) did not appeal to me, and the single-thumb control scheme was terrible. It didn't feel like it had been worth the wait, especially after a 20 minute download for the game data.
