July 6, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

HyperDevbox has a love for arcade style games and it really shows with their latest title. Normally you’d expect something like Exzeus 2 or any one of the many tactical RPG style games they’ve launched to be the next game they release, but this time they have taken their game developing expertise to a whole new plain and launched an officially licensed racing game based off of Indy car racing. Indy 500 Arcade Racing is a great title to check out for anyone that is looking to get their hands the classic feel of arcade style racing on their mobile. This is quite a bit different than your games like Need For Speed Most Wanted or Real Racing. The graphics are not as flashy but the fun is all there, and really brings back memories of awesome racing titles on the original Playstation.

INDY 500 Arcade Racing features the official INDY 500 race track and a total of 33 awesome open-wheel INDY cars for you to choose from. Although this is supposed to have an arcade type feel to it, the 3D graphics are still very detailed and has everything you could expect possible from an INDY race from car crashes to pit stops. You’ll put it all on the line and race against 32 other INDY race cars, which can be enjoyed in the single player arcade mode or in the multiplayer challenge mode where you go head to head against other local rivals over a Bluetooth connection with up to 3 players.

You can tune up your car and unlock new car texture packs through leveling up as you play. You can save and replay up to 32 different races so you can go back and watch them later if you wish. As always with HyperDevbox games, there’s an awesome soundtrack adding another layer of depth to the game. There’s full Google Play Games support with achievements(37 in all)and leaderboards. One of the best features is that HyperDevbox has included 3 different control types, so you can play the game the way you see fit. INDY 500 Arcade Racing supports the gyro controls, an onscreen virtual D-Pad or you can connect up a gamepad to play like the familiar old days. For those of you on Kit Kat based devices running ART, unfortunately the game doesn’t support it just yet. If you wish to kick back and have a little arcade racing fun, INDY 500 Arcade Racing will only set you back $1.99 if you pick it up during the special launch sale, afterwards it’ll cost $2.99.
