Hands-on with Rush Horizon, the endless-racer for nineties arcade fans

Hands-on with Rush Horizon, the endless-racer for nineties arcade fans

AppSpy was first on the scene for coverage of Rush Horizon, and with good reason: the game looked like a slice of sun-drenched arcade racing in the promo materials we were sent. Now that I've been hands-on with the game, I can confirm that Rush Horizon absolutely delivers on its promise of nostalgic-yet-modern arcade racing, inspired by the gaming greats from the eighties and nineties. Rad Racer, Out Run, Hang-On, Ridge Racer: there's a bit of everything in here, and since this is an endless-racer, there's a spot of Temple Run mixed in too. Rush Horizon is currently in soft-launch, here's my early look at the game.…

Tackle Le Mans in the latest Real Racing 3 update

Real Racing 3 now lets you tackle the ultimate test of motor racing endurance in its latest Le Mans update. Giving you access to the track made famous by the 24 hours prototype race, this new mode throws up plenty of challenges for you to conquer on the road to becoming the Le Mans champion. Of course, while Le Mans is famous for its 24 hour endurance race, the game won’t expect your battery to last for a full day. Instead, you can challenge next generation prototypes like the Audi R18 e-tron Quattro and Toyota's TS040 Hybrid in shorter races which let you cruise around the circuit as the sun goes down. On the social side, four players can now compete together split-screen using b…

Comic book racing game SXPD: The Rookie is coming to iPad this May

Blending a comic book story with fast-paced motorbike racing, SXPD: The Rookie is the new game from non-profit publisher OneBigGame. Directed by Earthworm Jim designer Dave Perry in collaboration with Little Chicken Games Company, SXPD’s gameplay draws inspiration from the classic ZX Spectrum game 3D Deathchase. Taking the handlebars of an SXPD police bike, you race through the streets of the new 52nd American state of New Royal, trying to take down outlaws with missiles and machine guns. The black-and-white 3D tracks that your bike speeds around could have fallen straight from a comic book panel, with occasional flashes of red and blue colour injecting some colour into the procee…

Jetski racer Riptide GP2 currently on sale for 69p / 99c

Riptide GP2, Vector Unit’s fast paced jetski racer, is currently on sale for 69p / 99c on the App Store. Riptide GP2 has you speeding around aquatic tracks, pitting your skills against the AI - or up to four players online - in a series of aquatic races. Beating the later tracks demands judicious use of your jetski's boost system, which can only be charged by performing stunts off each track's many jumps.  An XP system lets you level-up your rider and jetski as you work through Career mode, while the optional decals let you customise your water-spraying ride to suit your tastes. We really enjoyed Riptide GP2 when we reviewed it last year, thanks to its frantic gameplay a…
