Happy Wheels is kind of a driving game with a level editor game inside it. You’re given the choice between a lot of people and each person will have their own unique vehicle, and when we say unique, we mean UNIQUE. The very first character in the list is actually an old guy who’s probably a patient in some random hospital, and his vehicle is an actual wheelchair. Another one is an Asian dad with his some in a bicycle with a child seat on the back. Does that paint an image in your head of how weird this game is going to be? Once you’ve chosen a character, you’ll also be given a choice between a few pre-made levels that you can go through. The best part of the game has to be the level editor though. The pre-made levels are a good way to get ideas on how to make your own, and when you think you’re ready, just make a fun one and share it to your friends so everyone can have fun. You’ll learn all of the controls for the vehicles (which would be the same across all characters) in the game, so don’t worry about learning it. The game actually holds your hand pretty well when it comes to tutorial screens.

If you’re ready to have a lot of fun and a lot of laughs with a little driving game, then you’re in for a treat with Happy Wheels. By the way, the game isn’t for the faint of heart. There’s a lot of blood and gore in this game since it involves death traps, so make sure to play it only if you’re cool with that.

SCRAP METAL 3: INFERNAL TRAP

Driving is so much fun that there’s a lot of different genres of games created around it including racing, simulation, open world, and a few more here and there. There’re only a few games though that’ll give you just the thrill of driving around a little sandbox without any consequence. That’s where Scrap Metal 3: Infernal Trap comes in.

Scrap Metal 3: Infernal Trap is a driving simulation game that lets you drive a few different vehicles in an almost literal sandbox with no goals or consequences or whatever, just the fun of driving. The game was created using the Unity engine, and because of this, the game is such a virtual eye candy. The music is lacking though, and the only sound you’ll be hearing the whole game is the sounds your car make. It can get boring very quickly since the game really doesn’t have goals or anything, just lets you drive around. It’s alright though, you’ll forget about doing anything anyway since the visuals and the physics are good and is the actual fun you’ll have. The game controls using the mouse and keyboard. You’ll use the W, A, S, and D keys to steer. The mouse will be used to change any settings in the game, including your current vehicle. You’ll have a few choices when it comes to cars, like SUVs or trucks. By the way, one of the best features of this game is the track editor. This lets you put in any type of available obstacles anywhere you’d like. This gives the game a bit more of replayablity and removes some of the boredom of the blank track – anything that adds instant fun to a game is cool by me.

If you’re looking for a game where there’s no stress of competition, or goals to hinder you from doing what you want, or just something that lets you test drive some vehicles, then you’re in for a treat. Scrap Metal 3: Infernal Trap is just the game for you, and it’d be a waste to not try this game out.

MOTO X3M

One of the coolest vehicles (aside from those expensive cars) is a motorbike. It’s every little boy’s dream to ride a fast bike and feel the wind in their hair they go as fast as they possibly can. Sure, bikes are prone to injuries and accidents, but that doesn’t stop it from being cool, fast, and awesome.

Moto X3M is a motorbike simulation game that lets you just ride a bike on different courses in any way you’d like. There’s really no ultimate goal in the game aside from getting to the end of each level, so you’re free to play at any speed you’d like. The controls are pretty simple because all you’ll ever need are the arrow keys on your keyboard. The up key lets you accelerate and go forward while the down key is your brake. The left arrow will make you pull your weight to the back on the bike to tilt the front upward and the right arrow will shift your weight to the front of the bike, making the back tilt when running on a good speed. You’ll use these controls to get through each level as they’ll be filled with obstacles and walls that you’ll need to avoid and maneuver over. You can also use these to perform stunts  that will lower your overall time. There’ll also be bombs in place to either help you or hinder you, depending on how well you plan your game. They’ll sometimes destroy obstacles to make them passable or just tweak the landscape to make it more difficult for you, but in any of these cases, your skill to adapat will be put to the test. You can always take your time as you’re in no time limit. The only use of the time is for you to get a better score, which isn’t really a requirement in this game. It’s more of a bragging right kind of thing.

Moto X3M is a very good game with very good controls and physics. The gameplay itself is pretty simple but needs precise moment and coordination. If you want a game that gives you the great feeling of riding a bike, then this game is a good choice.

3D Moto Simulator 2

It has been a long time since our last post, but we’re back with another great game!

There’s another simulator game out in the wild, and it’s one of the coolest so far! It’s got bikes and just a huge sandbox to run around in. 3D Moto Simulator 2 takes you to a whole new bike sim experience as you run around in a huge town, or a desert, or some other place you’d like and try out all the bikes available!

3D Moto Simulator 2 is a motorbike simulator that lets you try out 3 different bikes in an open sandbox, and that’s just simply it. There’s no racing to distract you, no enemies to take you off the road, no nothing. To some, it may sound a bit boring, but try it out. It’s fun to just ride around and take the bikes for a little spin. The 3 different bikes control differently so you’ll have to adjust a bit when changing bikes. The game is really easy to control and they always display the list of controls so you’re never lost. You use the W key to drive forward, the S key to hit the brakes and reverse, and the A and D keys to steer left and right. The 1, 2, and 3 keys will make you shift between the 3 different bikes available (1 for the normal road bike, 2 for the dirt bike, and 3 for the police bike). You can press the Space bar to hit the handbrakes and use it do drifts. The C key is used to change the view from third person to a farther camera to a first person view. If you want to use a boost of nitro, all you need to do is press and hold the shift key. If you get stuck on any part of the map, you can reset the bike positions using the G key. For the police bike, you also get a cool siren that you can activate using the E key.

3D Moto Simulator is one of the best simulators out there, and it’d be a crime to say otherwise. The cool 3D graphics, the ragdoll physics, and the great open sandbox make it a good game to just run around and play with, even when there isn’t too much of a plot to the game! If you want to experience how to ride a bike in the comfort of your own couch, then try out this game!

Buggy Simulator

Ever dreamed of trying out all of the different types of Buggies available in the world? Well, here’s your chance in making that dream kind of true (since it’s just a video game, it’s still pretty close, though!). Buggy Simulator helps you out in making this dream a reality.
Buggy Simulator

Buggy Simulator is a car simulation/driving game that lets you take control of a bunch of vehicles, all of them different variations of a Buggy. The game is simply just that, you drive around a little sandbox world. No enemies, no obstacle, and there’s really no end goal to the game. It’s just you and your buggy enjoying the ride. The visuals of the game are very good, and it’s all in 3D, too. The controls are super easy to learn and very responsive. You can use the arrow keys or the W, A, S, and D keys to drive the car. Up arrow or W to drive forward, down arrow or S to brake or reverse (if you are stopped). The left and right arrow key or A and D keys will make you steer left and right. Pressing the space bar will pull your handbrake, most useful for drifting and for sharp turns. The C key changes between different views that you can use (a far camera, a close camera, and a first person view). The shift key is used to shift gears upwards. The R key will reset the whole game, the G key will reset your car, and the V key will let you cycle through the different buggies.

Buggy Simulator is a very good game with pretty graphics for a browser game. Although a goal is not present in this game, you still get all the fun that it offers by being able to drive the different vehicles available. If you’re just looking to drive around a sandbox with different buggies, then Buggy Simulator is the perfect game for you.

Offroader v5

Driving simulators can have a lot of different looks and feels depending on how the developer wanted you to play, or on their idea of fun. For Offroader V5, I feel like everything is weird and off and most of the times does not make sense, but that doesn’t really mean that this is a bad game with no direction at all, in fact, it’s just part of the charm of this game.

Offroader V5 is a driving simulator that lets go of all those racing mechanics that you usually get for driving games that have come out in the past decade or two, but offroader V5 takes that away and just gives you the freedom to drive around a huge area with nothing but you, your car, and the road. You have more than 4 vehicles at your disposal that you can switch around with (using a simple press of the E key on your keyboard) and they will be different from each other, some will be your regular race cars, some will be trucks, and some will be vans that can be driven and changed to at any time during the game. Although the game has no goals or missions, it’s a great game to waste time with and a very fun distraction. Each car gives a different feel and a different way of driving, so using all of them around the track is super fun (the sedans suck on dirt, while the trucks are very fun on dirt).
Offroader V5 is a different experience, and although not many people may like the “no real objective” part of the game, it is still a fun game that must be given a try if you like driving games, as taking on the role of a driver for different cars is a unique style that not too many games will ever offer

Wheely 8

Wheely has been on a roll (yes, the pun was intended!) for a few years now, and we now have an 8th game, and this comes to us with not too much of a surprise as we all know one great game just deserves another sequel, right? Wheely 8 brings back all that puzzle game love that all the other games have brought us, and this time, it’s an out of this world adventure (literally!)

Wheely 8 is the 8th instalment of the ever popular Wheely series of puzzle games (see here and here). You take control of a little red car that just wants to get on with his own little life, but trouble always seems to be on his tail. This time, he goes camping with his girlfriend when just out of nowhere, a UFO crash lands in front of them and is now in need of his help. Take on the grand adventure of fixing their ship and helping them find their way home, all in the hope of actually getting the camping thing started. The game is pretty simple. Your car-acter (see what I did there?) will be on one side of the screen, and a goal will be on the other side (usually denoted by a flag). You will need your trusty mouse to play the game. You will use your cursor to point on different objects in the game, and then use the left mouse button to interact with any objects available to use. You also click on your character to make him move forward if he is stationary, or stop if he is moving. You will be solving all types of puzzles to ensure that he reaches the goal safely. In each level, there will also be 2 challenges each. The first one is to find a little wheel hidden within the level, it can be part of the background, or sometimes will have a few extra quirks to it before you can find it (one of the levels will have you clicking on birds to actually find it), and the other challenge is to find a little red car (same as you, but much smaller) the same way you would find a hidden wheel. Whenever you find something hidden, just click it to collect it.
Wheely 8 is a very good game with a lot of replay value thanks to the challenges on each level. Will you be able to finish your camping trip? Find out in Wheely 8!

Free Rider 2

Playing a driving game is pretty easy, right? But, creating a course for driving games, now that is not something you can do quickly, but you know deep in your heart that creating a course where you can drive on is pretty fun. Free Rider 2 lets you do both! You can create a fun course with lots of obstacles and whatever you can think of, and lets you drive on it using different vehicles!

Free Rider 2

Free Rider 2 is a course creation game with a bit of driving squeezed in. This game is easy to understand and even easier to play. If there’s something you do not understand, all you have to d is click the question mark at the bottom right hand side and you’ll find out everything you would need to know. The main goal of the game is really for the player to just have fun and let the player’s imagination go wild. On the left side of the screen, you have tools you can use to create your course, including a pencil to draw lines that your vehicle can drive on, an eraser, a line tool to draw sceneries, a tool to draw curves that you can use as obstacles or loops or hills that your vehicles can go through, and a few more. On the right side, you can change the background theme, the quality of the game, and the vehicle you’re using. There are a lot of options here, and all you really need to have fun is your imagination. Once you’re done with the course, you can drive your vehicle by pressing the Up arrow key to drive forward, the Down arrow key to use your brakes, and the left and right arrow keys to lean left and right.

Only a few games will let you use your imagination to have fun, and Free Rider 2 is one of those games. If you want to play a game that lets you have fun on driving as well as creating, then Free Rider 2 is the perfect game for you.

Earn to Die…

Dying is easy. Dying in a zombie apocalypse is even easier. A true man (or woman) needs to earn his death by doing something crazy, innovative and dangerous. That is exactly what Earn to Die 2 Exodus, the newest game in Earn to Die series, is all about. The game was made by Toffee Games and playable on Crazy Games.
An intro clip puts you in a zombie apocalypse and the last human settlement is about to be evacuated. It is nowhere near your neighborhood, though. Actually, it’s on the other side of what’s left of the United States of America. You decide to get there, or die trying.

Earn to Die 2 Exodus is a platform side-scrolling physics driving game (or short PSSPDG) in which your mission is to travel from checkpoint to checkpoint, where a new vehicle awaits, in as few days as possible. It is impossible to reach another checkpoint in one try because the vehicle you drive is a rusty piece of junk. By some twisted logic, each time you drive, trying to reach the next checkpoint, you will end up back in your garage with considerably more money than when you started. Money can be spent on upgrades, allowing for better chances of reaching the next garage. The parts of your vehicle which you can improve are engine, transmission, wheels, gun(s), boost, armor and fuel tank. Each part provides a different bonus when upgraded.
Engine will allow for faster acceleration and less fuel consumption, transmission provides increased maximum speed, wheels give you better grip for those steep hills, guns kill zombies before they hit your car considerably reducing the amount of brains on your windshields as well as the damage on the car in general, boost can be used to gain a little extra speed, armor increases the amount of damage your vehicle can take before breaking down and fuel tank gives you candy (just kidding, it gives you more fuel so you can travel further).

With adequate graphics and good background music, Earn to Die 2 Exodus is a great albeit short game to waste a bit of time on.

Car Eats Car 3

They say we shouldn’t judge the book by its cover. The same goes with video games. Although the title implies an automobile version of a cannibalistic feast, Car Eats Car 3, made by Smokoko game developing team, is a side-scrolling platform game with nothing new to offer.

The mission is simple, get to the other side of the level and collect as many gems and bonuses as you can while evading or destroying cars that are chasing you. As you drive you have no control of the gun mounted on the roof of your car, however you can release bombs behind you and leave your chasers in a pile of metal and ashes. Boosting can get you flying which can help collect even more of those pesky collectibles needed to upgrade your vehicle. In addition, there is an achievement system which awards you gears, another currency needed to buy more upgrades.

The controls are uncommon, with the UP arrow for moving forward, DOWN for backward and LEFT and RIGHT to balance the car while flying. It is kind of funny to watch your car roll over and over in place when you start playing the game, but it gets annoying quite fast.

Background and item design is beautiful but car design has its flaws. The car you play with is similar to Lightning McQueen, a main character of Cars (cartoon made by Disney and Pixar). Other cars you meet through the game also show strong resemblance to the cartoon, which had me questioning the creative aspect of Smokoko.

With no impressive features and a repetitive soundtrack, Car Eats Car 3 gives nothing to keep you interested and play more than a few levels. It is a sequel that didn’t live up to its expectations.
