This change of direction really works for them, they’ve designed a fun little racing game featuring various tracks and challenges. Like most racing games you can choose from a selection of cars, but first you must unlock them by completing races or challenges.
I liked this aspect of the game, mainly because it felt more satisfying to earn better vehicles rather than have them all available from the start. This may have been helped by the fact the first car is practically arse on wheels and anything that came after would feel like an upgrade.
You can also upgrade your cars’ stats; again you earn these by completing challenges. It’s refreshing to see a game like this make you earn your content, “oh you want to advance do you?” the game would say, “well back to the start and do it right this time…Faster!”.
