I honestly don't get the attraction to drift racing, which is odd considering its popularity with many of my friends and indeed around the world. However, after spending time with Drift Mania Championship by Ratrod Studio I came close to understanding and if nothing else it's an impressive title at a bargain price that most racing fans should find hard to ignore.
Drifting, as the game points out, is the sport of being in control of being out of control. The interface is amazingly elegant, giving players tight control over the car's turning via tilt controls and acceleration is handled via a slide-bar on the side. Players can jump right in and after a few laps you'll finally come to grips with its unique controls. Points are scored for keeping a drift active for as long as possible, with bonus points for fast, 'impressive' and precise drifts boosting your score to help you win first place.
While there are only three tracks available, they're incredibly well detailed and players are also treated to four unlockable cars that look suitably impressive. Considering the low cost it's amazing to think that this game includes so many licensed products including band soundtracks and official support from the DMCC.
Ultimately, DMC is all about getting that massive score and the more you play the better you'll get at throwing your weight around the tracks with precision and speed, eventually bumping your name to the top of the online scoreboards. Drift Mania Championship is definitely worth checking out for racing and especially drift racing fans.
DescriptionWith MILLIONS of users, Drift Mania is a MUST-HAVE for any car enthusiasts! Join the revolution and start Drifting TODAY!
Drifting is the act of maneuvering a vehicle through corners at speeds and angles that exceed the vehicle’s grip. A drift is when a driver performs a controlled slide through corners while adhering to the racing line. Drifting involves fast cars, super skilled drivers and hardcore fans.
It’s a combination of driving skill, style and showmanship. It’s all about loss of the rear wheel traction while keeping the race car in total control.
Drifting is so popular because it brings all the best aspects of motor sports into one package. Highly skilled drivers control a high powered street car past its limit, sideways at high speed, burning rubber. It can’t get any better!
HOW TO PLAY
Drifting is a very unique Motorsport where points are allocated on 4 main criteria: Speed, Line, Angle and Impact.
LINE: Drift within pre-designated zones to get extra points. The line is marked by several clipping zones where the driver must get as close as possible while sideways to increase score.
ANGLE: The more the better. Drift with style and try to get your car as sideways as possible without wiping out to gain more points.
SPEED: Always try to drift as fast as possible while staying in control. If you hit a wall or get off-track, you will lose your current combo score. If you complete the race quickly, you will gain additional points.
IMPACT: This is the show factor! It’s about entertaining the crowd and delivering an exciting performance. Make them cheer; everyone enjoys the smell of burning rubber.
