Hill Climb Racing

A game for those with the need for speed

Sometimes you need a fun, fairly mindless game to pass the time. Games like Hill Climb Racing were built for those moments. The game is as standard as they come. Players drive a bumpy buggy across increasingly hilly landscapes and have to keep the car from landing wheels-over-headlights by toying with the gas and brake pedals. Along the way, you can gather fuel and coins to fill up and trick out your vehicle. If you get stuck or land wrong, you have to start again. Navigating the landscape is a little harder than you might anticipate, since every divot in the ground can send your car flying. But once you get through the game, the replay value isn’t that high — though it can be fun to optimize your ride if you accumulate enough coins to do it. Free, for iOS and Android.
