Automobile Artistry Abounds In New Arcade Racer Splash Cars
After going through a limited soft launch for the past few months it seems that the fascinating puzzler/painter/racer Splash Cars is ready for its debut on the world stage. This charming new hybrid arcade-racing game from indie developer Craneballs blends together Micro Machines with Splatoon as it makes clever use of both tight isometric racing and territory capture painting together in a surprisingly comfortable symbiosis. As a maverick young hooligan with an automobile and a bucket of paint it’s up to players to literally restore color to their town like Kevin Bacon out of Footloose while the cops and their own limited supply of paint threaten to shut the whole thing down. However if players drive strategically and make sure to snatch up extra fuel and power ups they’ll be able to cover enough ground(with paint) to unlock the next stage and sometimes even a new ride. If you’re up for a unique new twist on arcade racers be sure to take Splash Cars out for a test drive, it’s available now for free on Google Play.
