Thumb Drift, as obvious as it sounds, is a game about drifting. It features a car on a track moving at a more or less constant speed and a tap on the screen makes it start drifting. The direction of the drift alternates and the tricky bit in this game is figuring out the right time to begin the drift and the right duration to carry it on for. If you fail, the car crashes into the sides of the road in a spectacular explosion of car parts blowing up into smithereens across the track.
This is especially devastating because what was a beautifully slick automobile just seconds ago turns into a fascinating scatter of car parts right up to the nuts and bolts. Thumb Drift features the kind of polygonal art which is dominating the scene of mobile gaming at the moment. Nevertheless, the graphics look incredible. There are four different soundtracks all of which are equally energetic. The game also has an interesting option to select ‘vroom’ as a language. T1his replaces all the text with car sounds. This is super fun!
Verdict: Thumb Drift
The usual frills available in runners of this sort exist in Thumb Drift as well; you can purchase up to 60 different types of vehicles ranging from Domestic Mango to the Bulletproof Automotive and the Shock Mansion to the might King of Nations. One great flaw with Thumb Drift is how buggy it is with older, aging devices. The screen frequently lags and makes it impossible to enjoy the game in its intended experience. Thumb Drift is difficult and even becomes frustrating at times. If you are prone to hurling your device in sheer disappointment, stay well away from this game.
