IGN has just revealed that Rogue Games plans to publish a new Wipeout racing game for mobile called Wipeout Rush, but it's not a typical futuristic racer. Nope, it's a card game disguised as a racer, and early screens have already revealed that there are multiple currencies as well as a stamina system, and so fans are rightfully upset. Wipeout Rush should is slated for release sometime in 2022, and there's a trailer available if you'd like to take an early look.
It's official, a new Rush Rally is coming to Android, and it recently entered into pre-registration on the Play Store. This is the long-awaited follow-up to Brownmonster Limited's Rush Rally 3, and this time around, everyone can expect a top-down racer. While we don't yet know when the game will be released, the fact it's finally available for pre-registration should signal that we are at the very least nearing that unannounced release date, which is good news for all of you racing fans out there.
A NetEase developer known as Dahua Studios has just announced that it's working on an upcoming racing game for mobile in conjunction with Codemasters, and it will enter into open beta this month. The game is called Racing Master. It's a real-time simulation racer that's utilizing the Unreal 4 engine as well as some proprietary Codemasters tech, who just so happens to be a developer with a slew of famous racers under its belt, such as DiRT, GRID, and F1.
At first blush, I thought Hot Wheels Unlimited looked like an enjoyable children's game where kids can create courses to race on with their favorite Hot Wheel vehicles. Sadly this game is simply a shallow, boring, and cheaply developed cash-grab, just like the rest of Budge Studios' catalog. It would seem this developer has a knack for shoving Mattel properties into the lowest-quality games possible, and so Hot Wheels Unlimited's content is gated primarily behind a monthly subscription ($4.99) as if the quality of this casual racer is actually worth such a ridiculous price. It isn't, and this game should be avoided.
Tree Men Games racing series PAKO has found a fair bit of success thanks to its breezy controls and casual obstacle avoidance gameplay. The last title we covered was PAKO 2, which was released two years ago, and expanded on the original title's gameplay. It was an enjoyable release. Today Tree Men Games has launched PAKO Caravan. It, too, offers a bunch of casual avoidance fun, but it also provides a new mechanic where you'll collect cars in a line, much like the classic video game Snake, making for a familiar but unique experience for seasoned fans of the previous titles.
Spunge Games has carved out a niche for itself with its Faily series of titles, such as Faily Tumbler and Faily Breaks, where the latter has already amassed over 10 million installs on the Play Store over the last four years, which is nothing to sneeze at. Clearly, mobile gamers enjoy this casual arcade series, and so the developer has released Faily Brakes 2 on the Play Store, a bigger and badder followup to the first title.
Almost a year ago, Nintendo released Mario Kart Tour on Android, and the game clearly wasn't ready for prime time since it was missing a boatload of features, such as multiplayer and landscape support. Over the last eleven months, Nintendo has slowly improved the game, adding in a much-requested multiplayer feature this past March. Yesterday, Nintendo tweeted that the mobile kart racer would receive a landscape mode whenever the next update for the game dropped, which landed early this morning as version 2.4.0.
You may have never heard of it, but the Crazyracing KartRider series is a popular franchise in South Korea, and so Nexon has finally brought the racer to the West with the release for KartRider Rush+. This is a free-to-play kart racer, much like Mario Kart Tour, and so drifting around corners while dodging obstacles is the game's bread and butter, though much like its competition from Nintendo, this is a game filled with in-app purchases, so expect a plethora of customization options that are available for purchase should you want to deck out your racer and kart.
Samsung held its annual Unpacked event yesterday, revealing a plethora of products, such as the new S20 line of phones. In an effort to make these phones look appealing to gamers, Samsung also announced that Microsoft's racer Forza Street will come to the Galaxy Store this spring as a free-to-play release. Of course, the game is already available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store, and seeing that I'm an extremely impatient person, I've sideloaded the APK (V29.0.9) to take the title for a spin to see exactly what it has to offer.
