Pixel Boat Rush, From The Makers Of Don't Run With A Plasma Sword, Spices Up 2D Racing With Crazy Characters And Weapons

I recall with fondness many weeks spent in front of my spinning, clicking Dreamcast, working away at the only game I had for Sega's console at the time: Hydro Thunder. While the graphics were amazing (for 2000, anyway), the big jumps and odd physics were what kept me coming back to the boat racing game. Pixel Boat Rush doesn't look or play anything like the minor Dreamcast classic, but I think it's managed to capture a glint of Hydro Thunder's spirit.

Gameloft Releases Well-Animated 'Cars: Fast As Lightning' Racing Game That Captures The Series' Charm

Gameloft's latest game, Cars: Fast As Lightning, is targeted towards kids, and it has all the makings of a good movie tie-in experience. The visuals are sharp and capture the feel of the films. The voice overs are convincing, the characters are well animated, and the dialogue might elicit a giggle or two.

Since Fast As Lightning is based on Cars, as you would expect, it's a racing title. And since this is game, there are controls, but they couldn't be more basic.

Red Bull Air Race The Game Hits Android To Deliver On Its Promise And Finally Give You Wings

What activities would you entrust to people jacked up on several cans of Red Bull? Flying an airplane probably doesn't rank high on the list, but for over a decade now, Red Bull has sponsored precisely that (okay, it probably doesn't actually encourage pilots to drink energy drinks beforehand). Established in the early 2000s, the Red Bull Air Race has taken place most years since (it took a hiatus from 2011 - 2013), pitting around ten or so planes against each other in a high-speed aerial obstacle course.

[New Game] Qvadriga Is An Excellent Tactical Chariot Racing Management Sim Going For $10

Forget modern day racing. As dangerous as getting behind the wheel of a car going over 200mph in an oval may be, it doesn't compare to hopping on the back of a chariot being dragged by speeding horses and attacked by spiked wheels. When stepping up to the challenge, planning is every bit as important as fortitude, which is why Qvadriga is as much a strategy game as it is a racing one.

[New Game] Ubisoft's Motocross Physics Title Trials Frontier Comes To Android With A Geographically Limited Pre-Release

Trials is a series of motocross games that takes a liberal approach to sports and, incidentally, gravity. The latest full release, Trials Fusion, saw an iOS counterpart called Trials Frontier. This slightly more cartoony take on the long-running series features the same physics-based racing and orientation gameplay - imagine it as a single-lane, dialed-up version of Excitebike. The Android version was just released, but only in certain locations. We're not sure where, we just know that it isn't the US.
