Social Racer Race.a.Bit Speeds Onto Android Devices

Race.a.Bit is a new racing game that has just been released for everyone to enjoy. The game was developed developed by Aesir Interactive and published by Headup Games, and these two have come up with a unique little way of getting the word about this game out there. Simply put, this unique racer can be yours for the price of a simple tweet or Facebook post. I will explain this a bit more later in this post.

Race.a.Bit is a retro racing game that takes inspiration from games of the 8 and 16 bit era. The game also easy to learn pick-up-and-play controls, and a stellar soundtrack from Bit Shifter. However, what really makes Race.a.Bit stand out from other racers on the market is that it is the very first ever ‘social racer’. This means you’ll be racing against friends and enemies alike while vying for the top spot in the online leaderboards.


The other major social aspect of the game comes through the game’s inclusion of a robust (yet user friendly) level editor. This editor will allow you to create your very own levels, and also download tracks that others from around the world have crafted. This makes for endless gameplay opportunity, and makes this a game that is sure to stay on your device for a long time to come.

So back to the fact that Race.a.Bit is free for the next couple of weeks. Because the game is such a social experience the developers have decided to provide the game for free (and free means no ads or IAP’s too) to anyone that is willing to send out a tweet or Facebook post to help get the game’s name out there. Personally I think this is a fantastic way of releasing game, and I wish the developers the best of success with this method for their release.



  • A large selection of tracks and vehicles
  • Powerful level editor with countless objects and functions
  • Various control modes to suit everybody’s style incl. MOGA controller support
