Top Gear: Race The Stig joins this genre. Your character is a driver who races around the city, avoiding other cars and jumping on trucks while collecting coins.
And you'll meet The Stig, the anonymous test driver from the BBC’s Top Gear.
An endless race
Top Gear: Race The Stig is a game inspired by the popular TV show, where vehicles of top makers are reviewed and tested. In this game, you won’t be testing any supercar, but you'll have to avoid other cars, trucks, buses or caravans on the road.
Like with other similar games, you'll progress as you get points, which in this case are golden screws. With them, you can buy upgrades for your car, change it, or get help to overcome an obstacle.
With Top Gear: Race The Stig, you’ll travel throughout the United Kingdom (countryside and city) while encountering other vehicles. To avoid them, you have to move to another lane of the three available, jump on a truck, or get your head down to avoid running into a barrier.
Test your reflexes
Top Gear: Race The Stig is very easy to play. By sliding your finger to the left or right, you move your vehicle along the three available lanes. By swiping it upwards, you’ll jump over obstacles, and by swiping down, you’ll duck your head to pass under a barrier.
On the other hand, if you get an object, it will appear on the screen. By tapping on it, it’ll become active.
Cartoon Top Gear
Top Gear: Race The Stig stands out for its cartoon graphics, which are colorful and well designed. In addition, vehicles are a caricature version of real cars, and this adds a touch of humor to the game, especially since some of the vehicles you can use are a bit quirky.
As for the soundtrack, it’s not very special, but it’s not too annoying, so it won't bother you too much while you play the game.
On your marks…
Top Gear: Race The Stig as a game doesn’t really add anything new, but it's well designed and fulfills its purpose, which is none other than having fun playing long games with crazy characters and vehicles.
