Race around and around in a space ship in this game made for the OneSwitch competition.
Orbit Racers is the most creatively simple racing game that I have seen in years.
You are in a space ship, and you race the other space ships, but the thing that’s different is each track is completely round. You just go round and around all the tracks.
You can pick up weapons which blast your enemies with lasers or rockets (which travel around the track instead of just in a straight line) or you can drop mines or these little blue things which bounce around.
However, the cool thing about this, is the tracks are not just standard asphalt tracks. From the centre of each track comes obstacles which block your path around the track. Depending on what type of track it is, there are different obstacles.
For example when you are in the air, helicopters and planes cross the track in front of you. In the sewer, there are rats. When you are underwater, there are whales.
Every thing is neat and concise about this game, it's all presented to you with the minimum of fuss and it all looks really great.
However the game play is a little fast and can get quite straining on the eyes if you don’t take a break once in a while. Other than that this is enjoyment plus, with lots of new tracks and modes to play it’s really a great, fun racing game.
