Perfect soundtrack, quality 3d graphics, lots of levels, responsive controls
Tail Drift for Android is an exciting 3D racing game that breaks the boundaries of what we've come to know of the racing genre. In this game, you take control of a variety of planes as you race for first place.
The aspect of this game that makes it so unique is it's interesting level design. Instead of having a flat layout for a map, each track is based around a large pipe system that players can rotate 360 degrees around. At various points in the map, players will be able to pick up power-ups, boosts and lots of coins that can be spent later on.
On top of having a really exciting level design, this game has a variety of different game modes. In some instances you'll be racing against other planes, whilst in other cases you will be racing against the clock as time ticks down. After each race, a sum of coins will be rewarded to you, and the amount of coins you earn will depend on how well you perform in the race prior.
Your coins can be spent on new planes - each plane in this game has it's own unique design and base stats. I was really impressed with the way the developers have managed to capture a variety of classic plane designs in a 3D cartoon art style, whilst throwing in a few comical designs as well.
Tail Drift is completely free to download and play, but the coin system can sometimes limit what you can and can't buy without spending on in-app purchases. There is also a fuel system that will limit the amount of races you can play without taking a break or spending real money. If you can look past this, you'll find this game a lot of fun.
