Rhythm Racer is a free futuristic 3D racing game which combines elements of “F-Zero” and “Guitar Hero” to deliver a fast paced, high volume racing experience which is unlike anything you've ever seen before.
The goal of the game is to keep the music flowing and collect points by tiling your iphone and driving your ship through the rings and coloured spheres which appear on the track. Like Guitar Hero, the game will let you miss a few beats, however if you miss too many the song will stop and it's game over, but this is fairly impossible to do. The game also features a neat pick-up placement system so no two games will ever be the same and utilises OpenFeint for both online leaderboards and achievements which adds a nice competitive touch.
The graphics are stunningly superb with out of this universe backgrounds and smooth 3D animation. The sound effects although enjoyable, become a bit repetitive after a few plays as the game only comes pre-loaded with one track (with another purchasable), however Avatar Labs have promised more content including new levels, video ads and push updates in the near future.
Rhythm Racer is a highly unique game which although may currently only feel like a demo, is sure to make an impression in the Appstore once more content is released. Since the game is free anyway, its highly worth downloading if you enjoy this style of game as it is guaranteed to entertain you, if only for a few minutes.
DescriptionCombining elements of "F-Zero" and "Guitar Hero", RHYTHM RACER is the fastest full 3D racing experience you'll have on the iPhone or Touch, and an amazing musical experience too! Keep the music playing and rack up points by hitting as many Power Spheres and jumps as you can. If you miss it, you'll know it. Recover quick and you'll still have a chance to get a streak and post a high score. The Pickup Placement System keeps it interesting by making sure that no two races are ever the same. RHYTHM RACER features original songs written and performed by Parry Gripp of Nerf Herder. Download it, play it, and see what the hype is all about.
