Race to Your Heart’s Content with Sprint Driver

Do you have the need for speed? Rather than taking out your aggressions on the road where you may cause an accident that injures not only yourself but also other drivers, why not exhaust your racing fever virtually? For those looking for a top-down, arcade-style racing game to pass the time, look no further than XDA Forum Member BeetlePlay‘s Sprint Driver.

The game puts you in control of a motorcycle, where your objective is to evade cops and other drivers while collecting as many coins as possible. Inevitably, you will either crash or run into an obstacle, thus ending your run. The coins you collect along the way allow you to change tracks or vehicles. And if you have enough coin, there are three tracks and nine vehicles to choose from. Controls for Sprint Driver are primarily accelerometer-based. However, you also have a boost button at the bottom right portion of the screen.

There are game genres where it’s not about the graphics, but let’s face it: Racing games deserve require refined graphics. The game itself was made using the highly regarded (and highly capable) Unity 3D engine. As such, its visuals are absolutely top notch, especially for a game created by an independent developer. And on my own Nexus 7 and Oppo Find 5, the details were crisp and rewarding, without a hint of stutter at max settings.

Head on over to the game thread to get in on the racing action. Just don’t blame us when you’re hooked.
