Dodge, attack and jump your way to glory collecting 'Beats' as you go on a journey infused with electronic music
Beat Racer, like the name makes obvious, is about racing to the beat. You are the driver of a sleek futuristic car which wants to drive down a road even though said road is fraught with spikes and larger, malicious cars. While immersed in the smooth tunes of this game, you are expected to dodge, attack and jump your way to glory. Blue points placed across the track represent the minor beats while the red ones stand for the major ones. Scoring a combo changes the already attractive environment to a new set of colours. Missing even one point will ruin your combo and you will have to start all over again with the collection. The importance of building these combos become apparent when you face enemies. If you have built up enough energy, you can blast them instead of shyly dodging their advances.
The graphics of this game are simply stunning. There is absolutely no exaggeration at all to claim that the game looks gobsmackingly amazing. The colours are the same neon set you would expect from Tron but they have been used so beautifully here that you cannot help but be taken aback when the combos start and the game starts flickering like a string of Diwali lights.
One con of Beat Racer is that the music can become repetitive when you have to play the same level again and again. If you are not accustomed to putting in a lot of effort to complete a level in a mobile game, you might get frustrated with it soon. There are around ten worlds with four levels each and eight cars that can be unlocked. The songs are pretty catchy and will draw you back to this game.
For people who consider EDM to be one of the greatest evils that plague the earth, this game will decidedly be not fun. For all others, Beat Racer will make you sway to the beat even as you swipe your car along with it.
