City Car Drift Racer is a drift racer game geared towards car racing lovers. If you want an app which will keep you engaged with great car racing tracks, stylish cars, awesome car upgrades and fine storyline and gameplay, City Car—Drift Racer won't disappoint you at all. With a plethora of cars, tracks and gaming modes, the app has it all that should be present in a good racing game. The graphics maybe a bit average but is still good enough to give a fine racing experience.
The drift racer game's homepage gives you the option of playing either a quick race or start your own career mode. The quick race mode is a quickplay option where you can get started and drive in a few races to get used to the control and the gameplay of the app. The quick race mode has four racing modes i.e. normal, time trial, elimination and survival. The normal race has two laps while time trial is basically a race against time. In elimination, the last place gets eliminated after every lap. In survival, you have to boost up your time for survival or else the game would stop. There are a total of 10 race tracks in quick race mode
The career mode offers the same gaming modes i.e. normal race, time trial, elimination and survival. However, the difference lies in the career points which are accumulated with each race. There are four career modes i.e. beginner, standard, expert and master with the difficulty in gameplay and the competition increasing with the modes.
There are four types of cars available in the drift racer game. You can change the paint and design and upgrade the car's top speed, acceleration, nitro capacity, handling and tires. The three better cars are locked to begin with but once you earn coins by racing, you can unlock them as well.
The overall gameplay of the app is impressive with two kinds of controls available. You can either tilt your screen for controlling the car or you can enable screen controls and then use the direction buttons on either side of the screen for controlling the car. The nitro option gets enabled with a simply tap on the screen with tilt control while with screen controls, a button on the side appears for enabling nitro power.
The game also offers coins and nitro boosts during the game and you need to pick them during the race in order to increase your chances of winning the race. It's a good feature and keeps you interested in the race throughout. Where and when the nitro boost is to be used matters a lot and its one aspect of the game which takes some mastering.
The variety in race tracks is also impressive with each race track having unique shortcuts and pathways. The locations differ as well which keep the racer engaged longer.
Coins are required for unlocking every function and you can build them for free by continuously playing or by watching videos. You can also buy the coins if you want from the game's shop.
