Having been launched on the 15th of May, this year, Horizon Chase Turbo has certainly made its place in the market. It has received greatly positive reviews, averaging a 96% positive review score on STEAM. Upon achieving this feat, Aquiris Studios released an accolades video to mark this occasion. The video can be seen below
The 16-bit arcade game, which has been available on both the PS4 and PC, is a homage to the classic and vintage racing games that define and laid foundation to the games we play now, such as the Need for Speed or the Forza series. The simple and tight controls paired with precision gameplay and detailed depth combine for a nostalgic experience for racing, arcade, retro and multiplayer fans young and old. “We created Horizon Chase Turbo to be the racing game we wanted to play, hitting the sweet spot between true-to-life simulators and chaotic, explosive kart racers,” said Aquiris Studio Game Designer, Felipe Dal Molin. “With Horizon Chase Turbo, we want players to feel the nostalgic tension of the simple tug-of-war of a tight turn; where players are run off-road for a split second only to return to intense high-speed action as they overtake and battle against friends playing together on the couch or via the online ghost mode.”
Apart from the vintage graphics and split screen modes, the game also features all game modes, including the World Tour campaign, tournament and endurance challenges support local split screen multiplayer up to four players. Along with many world destinations to race on, the game allows for many cars to players to drive in the game.
Along with this Accolades Video, Aquiris Studios also slashed the price of the stand-alone 16-bit arcade game. It has received a 20 per cent price drop on STEAM, as part of their summer sale. It is available for $6.55 for the game. On the PlayStation store, however, the game runs the player $19.99 only.
