Wrong Way Racing by Jared Bailey is a retro style racing game that, while very simple, is addictive and a lot of fun to play. Some iOS and Android games are so simple that they present no thrills or challenges, but Wrong Way Racing is thankfully not like that. The mechanics are simple, yet will draw you in.
In Wrong Way Racing, you control a black car and race it around an oval shaped circuit. Your goal is to avoid hitting the other cars that are on the track. Tapping allows you to change lanes, and that’s how you play the game. With Wrong Way Racing, you have to keep dodging the cars for as long as you can.
As you can see the game is pretty simple, but it gets you hooked and there’s a kind of rhythm to it. The longer you’re able to keep your car on the track, the higher your score will be. However, it’s not just about going around the track as you need to have some good navigating skills. If you hit another vehicle your car will burst into flames and it’s game over. To start over, just hit play.
If you’re looking for a simple game that won’t require a steep learning curve, then Wrong Way Racing is right for you. The pixelated graphics look very nice and will appeal to lovers of retro games. The game is free, very quick to download and it’s fun. If you’re tired of long, complicated games, then this will be right up your alley.
