Play involves picking and customising your car before hitting the road. You then race through procedurally generated track with obstacles, ramps and boosts. But unlike other racers, it's not about memorising corners or hitting the apex of bends. Press the right series of buttons and you pull off stunts like Tony Hawk Skating. You can also barge other road users out the way like Burnout.
It comes together to create a nonsensical bombastic assault on your senses. It shouldn't work, but in its own bizarre joyous bubble it completely does. You are freed from having to worry about racing lines and changing gear. Instead you find yourself going for one more trick, or landing just right to shove the police car off the road. While it may be a little light on content for hard core gamers, in the family (where you can compete for high scores) it's a lot of light hearted fun.
The developers describe the game as including a "fair bit of swearing, as well as some politically-charged messaging".
10+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. Younger players can enjoy the haphazard and light hearted game play. Although, as mentioned there is some language to keep an eye on.
Can play with 1 button & Single Stick or use the D-Pad inputs. Same for playing on a keyboard.
There are no simultaneous button presses but you do have directional input sequences, similar to what you would have in traditional fighting games. Relatively simple as far as those go, but still worth noting.
While there is Competitive Difficulty, this only really applies to one of the two game modes, specifically the 1v1 fighting mode.
For Visual Distractions, the opacity of the speed-lines that frequently appear can be tweaked, including disabling them.
