“FEEL THE RUSH – DRIVE TO CRASH” –The Slogan of this racing game.
Out of Brakes is a Fresh and new application out in Google Play Store, an the iTunes Store, it has Voxel like Game Design, and is pretty similar to Games Such as Crossy Road, Smashy Road and a bunch of other games in the sense of design and gameplay, where you navigate through a course of obstacles, get as many points as you can, and go through and endless maze to see who can get the highest score.
This game was made by an indie developer going by the name of ‘Pixelfresh’ or also known as ‘Ievgen Litvynov’ on the App Stores, previously, he also made the game ‘R-Climber‘ back in the 8th of May, 2015, that has a Design Style Closely similar to Cut the Rope, another popular game on the App Store.
Out of Brakes is a good game to have, since the characters look cute, and honestly, who hates Voxel Art? although acknowledged there are a LOT of games like this, but this game was actually quite enjoyable.
The main goal of the game is to avoid the Red obstacles, and hit all the blue obstacles to slow down the speed of your car, which obviously has no breaks, all while collecting trophies, which you can use to buy more characters that actually have Different Stats rather than just being an Aesthetic Part, there are quite a lot of Vehicles such as The Lorry, a Police Car, and even a Moon Rover, and tons of more vehicles to choose from.
The soundtrack that this game has is mildly good, it’s not the best, but it has a feeling that you’re actually racing and trying to stop the car, which you can’t actually do, and when you plough through the blue blocks (or crash into the red ones), This is basically what happens to you.
The perspective of the game is actually quite good, and the scenery looks simple, yet so satisfying to look at, Out of Brakes is definitely a Game you want to play while waiting for something, or when you’re just idle, and is just looking for a simple source of entertainment.
Ievgen Litvynov stated that the inspiration of this game came from the style of arcade machines and NES games, and that it wants to recapture the experience of playing a toy car when we were a kid, i’m not sure about you, but i don’t think we had moon physics back in the old days.
Although the gameplay isn’t quite original, i would still forgive it with a rating of 7.5/10, it could’ve done something different, it could’ve been something different, but alas, it did not do what it could have done in the first place, it’d be better if it was a free roam game, i would buy it if Pixelfresh did something like that, but this game will do, it’ll suffice my gaming needs.
