Foofa Race 2
Foofa Race 2, released by Internet flash game developers Crazy Monkey Games, puts you in control of a cartoon car in a series of zany races. In quick race mode you’ll simply complete a race of your choosing, while cup mode lets you take on a series of races. Choose from six different racers, each with its own unique advantages and disadvantages (acceleration, handling, etc). You’ll be able to choose four racers from the beginning and unlock two more as you play through the game.
You control your racer from a top-down viewpoint. Throughout each level, you’ll encounter hazards such as oil slicks, piles of debris and bomb-dropping storks. When you hit a gift-wrapped box, you’ll receive a random power up. Power ups include a chili speed boost, a protective bubble and several methods of attacking other racers, such as guided space missiles and oil slicks.
Armor Games’ Heat Rush has you race against time in a super fast convertible. Rather than compete with other racers, your goal is to complete the course in a set amount of time. The game has a total of 10 tracks and you must play through them in a set order. Note that if you have cookies enabled, Heat Rush will save your data so you can pick up where you left off last time you played. You’ll also be able to revisit old tracks.
Achievements add another layer of game play to Heat Rush. Each level has two specific achievements. If you complete an achievement you’ll receive an upgrade for your car. For instance, if you finish the first level, Cocoa City, in under 40 seconds you’ll earn the forged pistons upgrades. Other achievements include hitting no traffic, going at max speed for 20 seconds, passing 30 cars and not braking for an entire level.
Age of Speed 2
If you’ve played any of Nintendo’s F-Zero titles, then you’ll have a good idea of what to expect from Miniclip’s Age of Speed 2. Age of Speed 2 is a fast-paced, futuristic racing game. Your high-tech car will race through neon-lit tracks in an outer space setting to the tune of techno music. At high speeds (measured in hundreds of kilometers per hour) your car will go over massive jumps, down huge hills and through loop-de-loops.
You can choose between a quick race or a more in-depth campaign mode. Either way, you’ll have your choice of cars and upgrades. Age of Speed 2’s presentation is impressive for a free Internet game, with crisp 3D graphics easily on par with games of the Nintendo 64 and PlayStation era.
