Back in 2011 Herocraft announced a new kind of racing game that will be making its way to the Android platform. That game has finally arrived at Google Play after a very long delay. Protoxide: Death Race is a futuristic racing game where you get to control hover crafts. To make things interesting there’s also a combat element involved where you can take down your opponents.
Protoxide: Death Race is now available at Google Play for just $0.99. You will need a device running on at least Android 2.2 and at least 4.7 MB of storage space.
The game takes place in the future where the planet is facing several calamities. There’s the abnormal weather disturbance, earthquakes, tsunamis, nuclear reactor meltdowns and a whole lot more. What was once beautiful cities are now abandoned and controlled by gangs. There is no law in place and the only way to settle problems is through racing.
The single player campaign mode of this title is story driven. In here you play the part of a young racer who aspires to become the best and to get revenge. This mode has lots of dialogue filled screens which build up the storyline.
Your main objective in the game is to cross the finish line first. The game provides you with a decent choice of weapons which you can use against opposing racers. There are also bonuses along the race track which provides you with all sorts of power ups from shields, nitro and weapons.
The control of the game is simple enough. Acceleration is automatic. Tilting your device moves your hovercraft from left to right while the brake button on the screen stops it. When you have a nitro in store you can use it by simply touching a button on your screen.
Some of the features of the game include
- 4 single player modes
- Alljoyn P2P multiplayer
- 12 battle war-gliders each one with unique characteristics
