(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really a full fledged game review as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a certain game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know whether it’s worth your time/money or not.)
I’ve started quite a few reviews out like this, but one good thing about running your own website is that you can write about anything you want. Any game you want. There’s only so many game review sites out there and it’s next to impossible to cover everything. That’s why I’m glad we are here to cover those games that deserve the coverage.
Rambling aside. I ran across a racing game called, Full Drift Racing a couple weeks ago. I had only played a small portion of it to make sure it was worthy of making that week’s SNAPP Roundup. Since then, I’ve had a chance to dig into it quite a bit.
Full Drift Racing is a top-down circuit racing game by indie developers, Sadetta. (You may know this team from the Javelin Masters series.) At first glance, it may not look like much, but the more time you spend with it, you can see that a lot of love was put into this game.
You start out in Driving School and from there, you can compete your way through 5 different circuits ranging from all sorts of tarmac and dirt tracks. There’s also 7 different vehicles to unlock/purchase. What surprised me the most was how deep the upgrade system was. Each vehicle has its own unique stats and not only can you upgrade the speed, handling, and acceleration, you can add different booster kits, and paint just about every part of the vehicle separately.
Full Drift Racing really surprised me. It may be a little rough around the edges. Like, the behind-the-back camera view makes everything feel “floaty” and off for some reason. (The top-down camera is honestly the best.) But, everything else, the controls, the physics, it all feels just right. If you’re at all into racing games, definitely give this hidden gem a try.
