A game for those with the need for speed

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

Some­times you need a fun, fairly mind­less game to pass the time. Games like Hill Climb Rac­ing were built for those mo­ments. The game is as stan­dard as they come. Play­ers drive a bumpy buggy across in­creas­ingly hilly land­scapes and have to keep the car from land­ing wheels-over-head­lights by toy­ing with the gas and break ped­als. Along the way, you can gather fuel and coins to fill up and trick out your ve­hi­cle. If you get stuck or land wrong, you have to start again. Nav­i­gat­ing the land­scape is a lit­tle harder than you might an­tic­i­pate, since ev­ery divot in the ground can send your car fly­ing. But once you get through the game, the re­play value isn’t that high — though it can be fun to op­ti­mize your ride if you ac­cu­mu­late enough coins to do it. Free, for iOS and An­droid.
