Drive Girls Release Date PSV
Drive Girls is an action game that combines traits of a hack ‘n’ slash and a car racing game. It was developed by Tamsoft, a Japanese company founded during the early nineties’. The developer specializes in creating low-budget console games. Among the titles the studio developed, there are niche series like Dream Club, Onechanbara, and Senran Kagura. The developers also worked on spin-offs of Hyperdimension Neptunia series.
The game takes place in a world in which some people are able to transform themselves into sports cars. The main protagonist of the game is a girl named Lancer. She must face space invaders that attack her home island and city. At first, she is not eager to fight, but later she changes her mind and fights by using her ability to transform. During the battles with the aggressive aliens called Bugs, she is accompanied by other girls with similar abilities.
In Drive Girls the action is presented from a third-person perspective. The game is a simple hack ‘n’ slash title with racing game features. Each of five playable female characters has unique strong and weak attacks and special skills. The players can freely transform into a car, for example in order to gain speed and hit a group of enemies.
The story campaign is divided into a series of missions. Usually, the objective of these missions is to eliminate all enemies. The battles are fought on three-dimensional levels that are varied-sized arenas connected to each other with long corridors or roads. In addition to regular enemies, the players can also face stronger bosses. It is worth adding that the developers enabled the players to change equipment and looks of each character. These changes impact their combat abilities.
In addition to a singleplayer campaign, Drive Girls features a local and an online multiplayer mode. Up to four players can together complete missions or face each other in a Deathmatch.
Drive Girls is powered by an engine and technology used in other PS Vita games like Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed. The game features three-dimensional character models of decent quality, but the locations are simple and they are lacking details. The enemies aren’t interestingly designed and their movement animations are poor.
