Ever wonder what Hill Climb Racer would look like in 3D rather than side-view 2D? I did, and this is kind of, but not really, it. I like that there's no steering. That would make it a completely different game (driving/racing sim). The steering is automatic. What I don't like, is that it's not at all a 3D representation of a 2D game. It's fundamentally a 3D game. The main challenges are side-to-side, rather than linear like HCR. Using brakes and throttle, you have to avoid drifting side-to-side into rocks, and falling off the edge. I also hate the permanent sepia + vignette look, like an Instagram filter. But, I gave this three stars rather than 1, because even though it's not at all what I was looking for, they didn't really advertise it that way either, and it is a decent-quality game that might appeal to a different audience.

Fun game, but for me it's just ok. Good graphics and the music suits the game well. Controls are functional, but a little too low and too close to the edges of the screen. It's an unusual racer since you don't steer. Just gas and brake, drifting helps once you learn how. The game seems a bit unfair. You come in second, then upgrade speed or acceleration and do worse. Seems the ai gets upgraded when you do. Still a good game overall. It's worth trying and their game Abyss Attack is phenomenal.

Incredibly fun and addicting. Vert simple gameplay, and works perfectly. My only problem is that the colors on my cars were incredible, and all of the sudden i opened the app, and they changed to horribly dull and ugly blurred colors. Is this a bug? I'd love to see them back to their original beautiful state in which I actually want to pain them to my liking.
