High On Fuel is a free racing game for Android by developer Ironjaw Studios Private Limited. In case the title doesn’t make it obvious, this game involves car racing, similar to titles such as Formula Unlimited Racing, CSR Racing 2, and Car Racing Games 2019. In this case, it’s all about street racing in your upgradable cars, competing with game-generated opponents.
The action is set on the fictional Trip Island, with its dynamic tracks. You control your cars from a third-person perspective. You can earn money and modify your vehicles to improve their performance on the tracks.
Lots of tracks and features
High On Fuel’s fictional Trip Island comprises many tracks, 60 to be precise. Every track is unique, even though it’s mostly the same setting. There are also two race types to keep things interesting.
Aside from this, you have 10 cars to choose from. You can modify their engine and tyres, and purchase suspension upgrades with money earned from the races. This can give you an advantage over the other beefed-up cars the AI uses against you.
High On Fuel isn’t synonymous with “real racing”, but the graphics look beautiful. The night cityscape where the action happens is fantastic, as are the cars. The streets are also detailed, and everything has vibrant colours.
There’s a lot of value when it comes to effects, too. For example, exhaust flames, headlights, and light sources that reflect on the car bodies are very well rendered, as is tyre smoke when you brake sharply or drift.
A lot of fun
There are plenty of car racing games around with varying degrees of quality. Some are ultra-realistic, while others play like an old-school arcade game. The best feature of High On Fuel is the balance between both game styles. This game looks and feels realistic but without hindering the fun.
The cars are easy to control, even when you perform complicated manoeuvres, and the tracks are entertaining, too. Many players eagerly anticipate further updates, given how fun the 60 tracks feel. Summing up, if you’re looking for a realistic-looking car racing title that plays like an arcade racing game, look no further.
