OverviewOverview

Drive is an endless driving game where you pick a car, choose a location, and see how long you can survive for and beat your previous record. Its attraction is in the simplicity and light narrative about old cars finding a new lease of life.

During each turn you must pick up fuel, dodge obstacles and get away from the police cars. You use collected coins to buy other cars to drive. There are a wide selection of classic, retro and modern vehicles. You can also upgrade your car's speed, grip, acceleration and coolness.

Taking damage by bumping into objects reduces your car's durability. Find pit stops for a quick repair by taking a sharp turn off the road. The nine different locations offer varying scenery, terrain and hazards.

The controls are simple and easy to use, with only a brake button and left to right direction. It's similar to games like Subway Surfers and Altos Adventure as you take on an endless journey and test your skills at manoeuvring at high speeds. Here though, it's retro-style and classic cars (rather than tranquility and flow) that are the draw.
