Game Review! Hill Climb Racing
I have been playing a very addictive game recently on my Nokia Lumia 625, Hill Climb Racing. I thought I’d share it with our readers. Watch the video below, which has been uploaded to our YouTube Channel.
The purpose of the game is to get as far as you can on a number of different tracks, collecting coins as you go along. The coins can be spent on buying new vehicles, which range from big wheel trucks to Tour buses and then buy upgrades for your vehicle to make it perform and handle better. There is an option for in game purchases, you can buy 150,000 coins (which takes about 30 minutes of game play to collect) for £1.49. This purchase also makes the game ad free. Or, if you want to unlock loads of tracks, vehicles and extras without playing your way through, quantities of coins go up to 20,000,000 which cost £37.49.
What I like
I love the physics of the game, the two vehicles which I have so far tried behave as you would expect them to, the truck and Moto X bike. I also like In App Purchase options, in that you don’t have to spend money to enjoy this game. All unlockable features are easy enough to access, just keep playing the game.
What I Don’t Like
As seen in the video, you can play Hill Climb Racing on different platforms, so what would be nice is the option to carry on where you left off when you move from playing on your Lumia smartphone to a Windows RT device, but unfortunately there isn’t a way, at least not one that I have found. The only other fault I have found so far is that this game is just so darn addictive, what starts off as a quick try at reaching the next level turns can easily turn into half hour or more without you realising.
If you are having trouble installing Hill Climb Racing on your Windows Phone 8 device, it may be because of your location. There is a way around this, go to Settings, then Language and Region and the second box down should be “Country/Region” change this to United Kingdom (or USA I believe) and try again, this should work.
Let us know what you thing of this game, I would be interested to know.
