Review Retro Highway

Brandon Girod
8.5Excellent
Great retro graphics, good details within the game
Too many ads, takes too long to get into a new game
Nothing is more relaxing than a nice drive on the interstate. The window is down, the hair is blowing in the wind, your favorite song just came on the radio. Then, suddenly, a dude on a motorcycle blows past you, clipping your rearview mirror as you see nothing but his tail light pass you by. Welcome to Retro Highway for Android.
This is a game that obviously instills a very retro arcade feel while incorporating some more contemporary mobile ideas, too. The objective of the game is to drive along a nice, windy road for as long as you can. The longer you drive, the denser traffic gets. There are tunnels that prevent you from jumping off the back of semis, turns to make your path ambiguous and hills to completely obscure your vision.
While you’re driving, you can bob and weave through traffic by pressing the left and right virtual buttons at the bottom of both corners. The controls feel pretty tight but it’s the way the game works. Your controls will feel more responsive when you unlock new motorcycles with better stats. You’ll do this by completing objectives, picking up coins while you’re riding and by driving a bit recklessly.
I don’t have that many problems with Retro Highway because everything feels so good. It does take longer to get back on a run than it should. Ideally, I’d like to be able to jump right back in, but instead you have to go through at least three screens and a countdown. All that aside, this is aw great arcade game.
