Halfbrick Rocket Racing

Halfbrick Rocket Racing is a game developed and published by Halfbrick for the Xbox 360 game console and at first glance, seems to be presented in a traditional top-down format. There are however two notable twists which simplify the learning curve and ensure fun, intuitive gameplay. Each racing craft is controlled with just two buttons – the left and right analogue triggers. They power the left and right rockets respectively, so movement is simple – press both at once to move forward and alternate power to each for turning. Players will be able to customise their controls to find the configuration that suits their playing style, including using the left analogue stick. Players are required to gain a significant speed boost by positioning the rockets against the walls and corners for extra thrust power. It is more than just hitting the best racing line and cutting corners as that won’t always be the best way to win. The concept is explained via a simple tutorial system in the game, and players will eventually be sliding and boosting around each level with high speed and extreme precision.

Features

Halfbrich Rocket Racing is the third game released under the Halfbrick Fridays range of casual games. Halfbrick Rocket Racing uses a new analogue control system using just the left and right triggers. Pressing each one to power the rockets on each side of the racing craft, and alternate power between the two to turn and drift around over 40 tracks. The rockets will also serve to boost the craft off nearby walls, so the key to achieving the best times is to grind and slide around the perimeters of each track with speed and finesse. Players can try over 40 unlockable tracks each with four medals to win, with race times uploaded to the Global Leaderboards to see where they rank against the rest of the world. It also features a multiplayer mode, with up to four players locally on one screen.
