Here’s something you don’t see often – a 3D racer Flash game. Hands up who owned one of the following: Out Run, Chase HQ, Super Hang On or even Super Monaco GP Rally? Exactly. So, you’ll be pleased to hear that they’re exactly the kind of vibe conjured up by LongAnimals’ excellent effort.
It’s a simple, no- nonsense racer with time limits to beat and minor upgrades to be had. No grind necessary here – about 20 minutes will see you suitably kitted out with enough bolt-ons to unlock all the levels and whizz around in a glowing white-hot supercar. Just how they used to be. The smoothly-executed vector graphics give a credible illusion of speed, even more so when your turbo-glow effect is applied and you plunge headlong into the void with a breathtaking turn of speed. It’s like the jerky 16-bit days of yore, but with ramped-up graphics balancing out an unfortunate lack of hummable tunes.
A twist on a bygone era but that deserves to keep you busy tomorrow lunchtime.
