The team at Applimazing have a rich history of producing ‘the most amazing games’ – their words, not mine – and as such know a thing or two about what makes the gamer tick But research shows that these games have previously been centred on the mobile scene, with a number of quirky little racers under their belt. Today though they hit the big time, launching Ultimate Racing 2D on Xbox One.
Available to purchase and download this very minute, Ultimate Racing 2D on Xbox One pretty much does as it says on the tin. It’s a racer. It’s got a ton of racing classes. It’s got even more tracks. And it’s got enough content to keep the most hardcore petrolhead busy for some time.
Running with a price of £8.39, this ultimate racer shouldn’t however be thought of as a Forza killer, or a competitor to the utterly stunning GRID. Hell, it shouldn’t even come into contention against EA’s latest Need for Speed experience – Heat. Instead this runs as an old-school top down racer, much like you would have found many years back, or systems that are now near obsolete. But if that is something that floats your boat, then hey, you can crack on here because Applimazing have included a host of options.
With a variety of tracks that have a hint of a likeness to the real world, a vast range of class types and plenty of thrilling racing, should you be looking for something a little different to the usual racing options, then you may well have found it here.
Our full review will be able to fill you in with the finer details as and when it goes live – very soon, if you’re asking – but in the meantime you would do well to hit the Xbox Store and grab a download. The option to go forklift racing doesn’t come along too often you know!
