The game's controls are fairly simple and they cover basic wheel steering commands with the keyboard keys. Pretty much like in any parking game, you can go forward, make left and right turns, put in reverse and press space-bar to engage the breaks pedal. In order to redeem for poor gameplay, designers invested time and effort in many small details such as nice racing tracks and vehicles skins. You can choose to play as one of 7 different major superheros. We got here Spiderman, Hulk, Iron Man, Superman, Batman, Green Hornet and Captain America. Actually you won't get to see their faces or figures, as they'll be sitting in a cockpit of their racing machines. But you can easily recognize them in a race by the logos and characteristic colors on the cars' hood.
Levels and Cotrols
There are 12 levels, 12 tracks you can race. Only the first one is unlocked and the next one becomes accessible once you complete the previous one. In order to complete the level you must win the race which is not an easy task. Turns arte sharp and the computer opponents drive like a professionals. Our suggestion is to buy upgrades as soon as you can. Too bad the game didn't come with difficulty levels. Novice players could have used easy mode to practice first.
There are three possible upgrades you can purchase after the race is finished and of course if you earned a few bucks to spend:
- speed - the car is lighter on the gas pedal and it is the most expensive upgrade here.
- acceleration - reacts faster and you consequently gain more speed faster.
- handling - the better the handling the more control over the car you have. this is the least expensive upgrade.
Tip of the day
Since you play each track for the first time it is very hard to predict all sharp turns and to react to them fast enough. The thing that will happen to you most likely is to lose loads of time hitting the corners and backing up to continue the race. Since you don't have to wait for the race to finish, you can stop it at any time, this is the great opportunity to check out the track. The tip is to learn the track by heart so you can compete with the rest of the drivers as an equal, since they all drive like pros.
The game is interesting enough simply because the graphics are done quite well and it gives you an opportunity to play not as one but as 7 different characters. Along with the upgrades and somewhat hard tracks this game will be a challenge for everyone. When you start racing there will be a small track map in the lower left corner but that won't help you much and that is why the main tip of the game is to review the track before you start any serious racing. But in the opposite corner you can easily track you ranking in race and current speed. Overall the game is satisfactory and fun to play for the first time players as well as those who return to play it again.
