If you’ve got the need for speed, you’re going to like Traffic Racer. The endless racing game has been available for iOS and Android, but it’s now on Windows Phone 8 as well. Drive your car through highway traffic, earn cash, upgrade your car and buy new ones. It has great 3D graphics with smooth and realistic car handling.
Head past the break for our hands on video and walkthrough.
Here are some of the key features:
- 19 different cars to choose from
- 4 detailed environments: suburb, desert, snowy and city night
- 4 game modes: Endless, Two-Way, Time Trial and Free Ride
- Basic customization through paint and wheels
- Over 15 different models for traffic
You start the Traffic Racer with only one car available. As you earn more points, you can unlock more cars, paint, wheels, and upgrades. You can increase speed, handling, and braking for each car. When you click the play button, there are four modes to choose from. We recommend starting out with the Endless One-way mode.
Touching the right side of the screen accelerates the car, while touching the left side slows it down. Tilt your phone to steer. You can change to touch steering and automatic acceleration in the settings.
Want to earn score and cash quickly? The faster you go, the more scores you get. When driving over 100 kmh, overtake cars closely to get bonus scores and cash. Driving in opposite direction in two-way mode also gives extra score and cash.
Overall, we think you’ll like Traffic Racer. The developer promises to update the game constantly, so we’ll be following it closely. The current version, 126.96.36.199, still has a couple of things missing, but they’re not deal breakers. It currently does not have leader boards and achievements.
Traffic Racer costs $0.99 at the Windows Phone Store and we have confirmed that it also works on devices with 512 MB memory. Unfortunately, there’s no free trial available yet. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments!
