Android gaming is getting bigger and better every month it seems. Among a number of new titles coming to Google Play, Hill Climb Racing is a perfect free-time filler.
Hill Climb Racing is one of the most popular physics based driving game. During its first year of release, it was downloaded over 100 million times. Until now, the number has increased to over 300 million times.
Hill Climb Racing is a very enjoyable platform game in which you have to control and get as far as possible in your vehicle while pulling off the occasional spectacular maneuver and collecting any coins you find along the way. The aim of the game is to drive along as much distance as possible over the undulating terrain. This is normally achieved by driving as far as possible without bombing out while collecting all the coins along the way. But you can also try to perform special moves while in the air which can help you to earn more coins.
Trying this game, you also have the option of choosing between three cars: a normal rickety one, a monster truck and a race car. However, you’ll need to collect points before you can unlock the cars or the levels. One thing that makes Hill Climb Racing become interesting is that it offers players chance to drive over six various regions ranging from a green hill to the Moon where gravity is one-sixth of that on Earth.
In Hill Climb Racing, some parts of the route you can’t pass without making the required upgrades, which needs a certain number of coins. Upgrades include four sections: engine, suspension, tires and 4WD. You’ll need to improve all of them to stand any chance of making progress. It also becomes increasingly expensive as you continue upgrading.
As you drive along, you’ll learn that Hill Climb Racing is a game of skill. Some parts you can race across, other parts require control; all of it requires a balancing of the brake and “gas” pedal to keep the car under control. Too much gas on a climb, you’ll roll over backwards; too much brake on a descent, you’ll roll forwards. Moreover, if players drive too slowly, they will run out of petrol; on the contrary, if driving too fast, they’ll inevitably flip the Jeep over and snap the poor hillbilly’s neck. At that point it’s game over and players have to start over again.
Hill Climb Racing is a good game to entertain, as there’s no strategy to think of or there’s no brain-racking thinking to do and there’s even no opponent to compete against. With that reason, Hill Climb Racing entirely deserves its popularity in both the App Store and Google Play.
