Vertigo Racing is a slot-racing game where your goal is to expertly handle the gas & brake to ensure that you reach checkpoints before you run out of fuel.
Vertigo Racing is a slot-racing game with a distinctively vintage feel. It is a game with just two controls, a button for the gas and one to brake. Each level is divided into stretches of roads where the checkpoints are gas stations. Your goal is to expertly handle the gas and brake to ensure that you don’t fall off the track and also that you reach the checkpoint before you run out of fuel.
The concept is nothing new but the execution will take your breath away (or not, in case you are not easily overwhelmed). Vertigo Racing looks gorgeous and reminds one of old photographs with the vignette around the screen. The soundtrack is groovy and speaks of a time when long car rides along scenic routes were savoured as opposed to the constant rush of today.
There are ten classic automobiles that you can play with, ranging from the Piccola to the Prestige. You can even customize the cars, right from the interiors to the outer paint job. The tracks are intricately designed and twist and curve enough to provide you with a fairly challenging game. You can drive your car over spooky hillsides, alpine tracks or lazy, flowered avenues. One problem with Vertigo Racing is that ads pop up often and this detracts from the pure fun of the game. Also, the difficulty curve is pretty steep and after a certain point it becomes difficult to advance any further without spending some money on the game. Another problem is that the mechanics can be a bit messy at times and the car will spin out of control even though you did everything you could to keep it on the track. However, despite the few flaws, Vertigo Racing is a polished, stimulating game which will not leave you bored.
