Ace Racer Gameplay

The mechanics are generally simple and easily manageable. If you have experienced playing an arcade race video game, then you should know the drill. The main objective of the game is to outrank your opponent. You must reach the finish line first to win the match. Interestingly, the game starts with comprehensive character customization. Here, you can create your own avatar by mixing and matching various features. You can select among default gender-fixed avatars and customize them further by adding additional facial and body features.

Of course, your racing journey will not begin without a competing car. As soon as you are done creating your character, the game will let you pick one of the three initially available race cars. These include the mighty Ares and the flashy Volkswagen I.D. R, and the blade runner BMW M4. Once done, you will now be prompted to the Practice mode to familiarize yourself with the controls and navigation. It is also a great platform to practice new maps.

The game begins with matchmaking in which you will be opposing 5 other online players. These are randomly selected players that match your level of expertise. After the initial countdown, you will be asked to tap the Start button. If the timing is perfect, it will give you a good head start, giving you a great advantage in the game. The car will accelerate automatically but you can still manipulate the ability to move from one lane to another using the direction buttons. You can also take advantage of your other skills. Players can tap the Drift button to perform or obtain new Drifting skills. You can also maximize your chances of winning using the Nitro boosts. There are also special platforms that are randomly placed on the map that can drastically boost your speed during the race.

The player who first reaches the Finish line wins the game and will earn rewards and experience. Once done, it will prompt you back to the Main Room that gives you access to Shops, Upgrades, Repairs, and Vehicles.

A Great Collection of Real-life Inspired Vehicles

Like most console-grade racing app games today, Ace Racer offers a large collection of unlockable and obtainable vehicles that are inspired by real models. These cars are inspired by actual cars from legendary vehicle manufacturers like Porsche, BMW, Nissan, Aston Martin, and a whole lot more. Currently, there are more than 100 authorized vehicles (from sports cars to luxury vehicles) from more than 25 well-known car manufacturers.

Another great thing about the game is the ability to customize existing cars. Once obtained, you can upgrade your vehicle and make it more appealing by applying new paint, adding decals, and changing rims, and lights. In addition to that, each car is also considered unique not just by its appearance but also by its unique skills. Each car has distinct skills that can be executed during the race. These attributes or special skills can also be upgraded to maximize your chances of outranking your opponent.

Appearance-wise, Ace Racer offers impressive graphics and animation. It is an absolute visual delight that treats you with console-grade graphic quality. This is also accompanied by a well-fitting piece of music that sets the right mood. In addition to that, the game features dynamic and immersive 3D maps. The tracks are well-polished and are also inspired by real locations such as Tokyo, Nevada, China, Los Angeles, and many more.
