Will Mega Drift Deliver Addicting Racing Gameplay?
As you can see, the simple but practical design of Mega Drift is appealing to the eyes and the adrenaline. Early reviews of the iOS app say it’s a fun game with reasonable loading times that’s appealing long after the basic drifting technique is mastered. The vehicle turns left or right based on the phone’s tilt, and a single-button boost system can be done with one hand.
Mega Drift can quickly become addicting due to the continual race against the clock to reach the next checkpoint. Within the game, coins can be collected to unlock other cars or upgrade existing ones. A variety of courses can be unlocked with each progressing success, such as forests and deserts. Available racing vehicles–which look like old Micro Machines–range from semi-trucks to hatchbacks to muscle cars. All come with varying Top Speeds, Boost Powers, and Toughness, which can be upgraded using more coins.
