OverviewOverview

Inertial Drift is a racing game set in an alternative 90s retro future. Unusually, you use two sticks to control the direction with one stick and the drift with the other. Choose to either enter races or play the single player story mode, where you progress through different tracks and bigger races. You get to pick from 18 different car types that all handle and act uniquely among the 20 race tracks you can use.

The game includes many environments such as: city streets, rural temples and mountain passes. These all have their own weather and tracks that weave through the landscapes as you race.
