Drift away to your heart’s content

Decent vehicle graphics
Extremely low FPS, full of ads, uneven graphics quality across the game
Drifting is intentionally over steering a car and staying in a stage of semi-control of the vehicle. Super GTR : Drift 3D for Android is designed to allow users to experience some of that thrill from the safety and comfort of their mobile device.
Once the game starts up players are presented with a simple menu where you have three buttons available, one to start the game and the other two for achievement tracking and the leader board. Other than that you can only browse some overpriced cars which are covered up, offering no information on the vehicle you would like to spend currency on.
In terms of graphics the all of the resources are dumped onto the cars, leaving the environment feeling out of place. The game play is a decent racing simulator with a semi-realistic feel to the way cars handle with buttons for acceleration, pedal braking and hand-braking on the screen to feel as real as possible. But the thing that seems to make the game like pulling teeth is the way the currency is handled, from how you make it to the time it takes and the price it costs to unlock things. I found myself mindless drifting for quite some time to gather the currency needed to buy a game mode (since they are four of them all being overpriced).
Super GTR : Drift 3D is a game that feels so poorly constructed that it actually feels like it was slapped together using spare parts and placed on the Play Store to feed users full with ads. On top of it all, even on rather high end devices the game has incredibly poor FPS, making it neigh unplayable.
