CYCLO MANIACS

You know how bikes are never out of style? Well, Cyclomaniacs know what’s up. This game is all about bikes and stunts – as well as all about fun. Join the race around the world using your bikes and different characters like a clown, a penguin, a pirate, a zombie, or even the King, Elvis Presley!

Cyclo Maniacs is a bike racing game that lets you roll around in your bike in more than 10 locations around the world and use more than 15 characters – each of them you’ll unlock as you play through the game. You’ll be playing using only your keyboard, with the W (or up key) being your accelerate button and S (down key) as your brake. The space bar will be used to jump. A and D is used to lift your front or hind wheels to do stunts. In the air, those buttons can be used to tilt your bike forward or backwards to do stunts to add more to your stunt meter gauge. Once that gauge is filled, you’ll be given a full boost meter that’ll automatically kick in. The goal of the game is to get to the end of the track and leaving everyone else behind (basically, you have to be 1st to get to the goal). You’ll be given a fixed amount for your win but you can also get more money by finishing the challenges presented to you before you start a race. The money you get can be used to buy upgrades for your bike and a lot of other stuff, so keep on racing to get even better bikes and characters!

Cyclo Maniacs is an awesome bike racing game and can give you a few hours of gaming time that you can’t leave – seriously, the game’s collectible nature and fun gameplay can become a bit addictive. If you’re looking for a casual game that you can play for a good span of time, then this is one of the best games to choose.

DRIFT HUNTERS

It’s common to find racing games everywhere nowadays. It’s a fun genre that’s fun for almost everyone in the whole family, and it can even sometimes have great multiplayer! But you know, sometimes, even the greatest games can become a bit boring, especially if the market gets saturated with great racing games. So now we’ve got a game stripped down to the bare minimum, Drift Hunters, which is literally just about drifting! Don’t let that fool you though, you’re in for a hell of a ride.

Drift Hunters is a driving game that gives you exactly what the title tells you, you hunt for drifts. You play as a driver that doesn’t race against anyone but himself, because the goal of the game isn’t really to be the fastest driver around, but to be the best drifter. You’ll do that by using your keyboard to control your cars. The W key is used to accelerate, while the S key lets you step on the brakes. The A and D keys will make you turn left and right, while the space bar activates your hand brakes, which helps a lot for drifting. By the way, when we said this game was all about drifting, we thoroughly meant it. You also buy stuff using drift, as the currency in this game is drift – like, how many drifts you’ve made. So the more drifts you do, the more money you have. There’s also a combo meter that’ll come up once you’ve done more than 50 drifts and keeping this combo going will give you even more drifts, so keep that in mind. You’ll use your drifts to buy different cars and upgrade all of your available cars. There’s also an option to change your cars’ appearances, but doesn’t really hold any bearing when it comes to speed or drift.

Drift Hunters is pretty fun, but can get a bit boring after a while as you’ll be doing nothing but drifting on different tracks. The graphics and audio is pretty good though, so that’ll keep you on the game for a little while. If you’re looking for a quick, fun game to play, then this game is a good choice.

SKATE HOOLIGANS

The browser gamers are often left out of a lot of great games available in the mobile platform, but that’s slowly becoming a myth as more and more devs port their games over to the interwebs via browser game. Although it still has a long way to go and we still lack a lot of the great games, some devs have made it their mission to give us great browser games that can rival the quality of the casual mobile games that we’ve learned to love. Skate Hooligans is such an example with its short but sweet gameplay, its addicting hook with a lot of collectibles, and easy to learn controls that anyone can just pick up and play.

Skate Hooligans is an endless runner that looks, plays, and feels exactly like one of the best endless runners on mobile, Subway Surfer. This time, you play as one of the many skaters in the game. The “story” (if you can even call it that) is that you’re doing graffiti (as all skaters do) and the police are onto you, so you skate your way out of it. The game is played using the keyboard’s arrow keys, with up used for jump, left and right to change lanes, and down to slide under obstacles. The main goal of the game is to get as far as you can without being hit by any obstacle on the road, which include moving cars. Along the way, you’ll be able to pick up coins which can be used to buy a ton of collectibles which include other characters, boards, and some other aesthetic stuff. You’ll also be doing missions, but they’re really simple, like get to a certain distance, or collect a certain amount of coins in a single run. As you finish more missions, more levels will become available.

Skate Hooligans may look like a Subway Surfer clone, but make no mistake. This game is a solid endless runner with great mechanics, graphics, and fair amount of stuff to collect. If you’re looking to scratch that mobile gaming itch while at a place without phones but with a computer, then Skate Hooligans is sure to help you out

TUNNEL RUSH

Ever wanted to do LSD and get that psychedelic trip that everyone’s been talking about, but can’t really do it because you know it’s, well… illegal? Then how about a little game that gives you a bit of that trip (not entirely, as I’ve heard) so you know how it feels? Welcome to Tunnel Rush! It’s a game that gives you all the colours and speed that makes you feel like it’s the 70’s again, without actually having to do something the cops can jail you for.

Tunnel Rush is a roller coaster simulator that puts you in front of an “imaginary” vehicle going forward through a tunnel filled with obstacles that you’ll need to avoid. Hitting a single obstacle will give you a game over, and you’ll have to start again at the very beginning (no checkpoints). The game mostly plays like an endless runner, too. The main goal of the game is to get as far as you can and beating the highest score you’ve made (or your friends made if you have other people playing). The game is played using just the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard, which is used to drive left or right. You’ll use this to avoid any walls or obstacles as you go forward automatically. Every once in a while, the tunnel inverts itself and instead of driving inside a tunnel, you’ll be driving on a circular tube – which is a pretty neat feature.

Tunnel Rush is as simple as games can get, keep playing and don’t die. The game has great music and visuals, and playing it for an hour without getting tired of it is pretty understandable (as we did as well). If you’re looking for something casual and fun, as well as easy to learn, then Tunnel Rush is a good choice.

Happy Wheels

People love vehicles. That doesn’t end in just cars, almost anything with wheels that makes travel faster and easier is something that everyone loves. Bikes, trikes, cars, even wheelchairs! In line with that, welcome to Happy Wheels! Play a game filled with comedy and fun, as well as one that’ll let out any creative juices you may have stirring in your noggin.

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
