Horizon Chase mechanics
The hero of our review refers to the classic 16-bit racing games that offered only 2D graphics, but created a sense of the third dimension with the help of clever visual tricks. What is happening is being watched from a camera installed behind the car, and our task, of course, is to pass the routes as quickly as possible.
We have several cars of different capacities at our disposal. During the game, we race along tracks located, among other things, in deserts , on the outskirts of cities and on highways that run through green plains. The driving model is completely arcade and the tournaments we participate in are very dynamic.
Horizon Chase for Android and iOS impresses with its quality. The developers took camera behavior and race track design from 2D racing games for 16-bit consoles and computers. At the same time, all the elements, both available cars and routes, were created in 3D, in the form of slightly angular models covered with simple textures. This creates a very interesting effect that, on the one hand, looks modern, but on the other hand, it refers to the old school style.
The soundtrack for the game is equally well done. The music was composed by Barry Leitch, a Scottish composer who has created the soundtrack for classic series such as Lotus Turbo Challenge,Top Gear and Supercars.
