Race And Battle is a funny arcade racing with elements of action in which you will take control of an unusual radio-controlled car and try to reach the finish line earlier than your virtual opponent. The game is designed in full 3D, and all the action takes place on a single track which is designed specifically for this type of competition.
Gameplay featuresThe unusual feature of the game has become the use of weapons that can incapacitate an opponent's car for some time and, thus, win time. You can mine the road and shoot with homing missiles. However, a rival in this respect is not inferior to you and will also shoot at you with missiles, as well as place bombs on the most difficult parts of the route. In addition, if you are sloppy, you can be blown up by your own mine, and if you stay close to your opponent during a missile launch, they by making a semi-circle can go back and catch up with your car exactly.
The missiles and mines tend to come to an end, but you can easily replenish their stock during the race. Collect white and green tiles scattered on the road, and then you will not experience shortages in weapons. By picking up the white tile, you get one missile, and the green tile gives you the opportunity to drop a mine.
Nuances of controlling in Race And BattleIt is particularly pleasing that there is an opportunity to launch rockets and drop mines in whole batches (if you have a lot of them in stock). Just click on a certain button very often, and you will see how, for example, an entire pack of rockets is sent into the sky, as if you control not a small radio-controlled car but a strategic system called "Grad". The task of steering the car are met by an accelerometer, but the dynamics of the game is so crazy that you will feel like the car maintains its own life. In fact, you shouldn't dwell on this, because it won't fly off the boundaries of the track anyway.
You only need to adjust the moving of the car to collect weapons and possibly go around mines. By the way, above the buttons responsible for the controlling of mines and missiles, there is a button that allows you to stop the car in the middle of the track. This feature will allow you to avoid rockets hitting the car, if you use it at the last moment when the missile is already out on the path of a direct hit and it is difficult to change the direction of its flight.
ResumeThe same button is responsible for the start, so won't be surprised, if you do not press it at the beginning of the game and the opponent breaks forth. However, while testing the game, we even gave the head start of a half-circle to the opponent, and then detained him with the help of rockets and overtook. The graphics in the game are quite acceptable, but we cannot call it perfect. Although, given the dynamics of the game, you will care about the quality of graphics the least. The sound is good and goes well with what is happening on the other side of the screen. Race And Battle is recommended to all fans of dynamic races with elements of action.
