Horizon Chase Turbo is an improved version of Horizon Chase, a game known from mobile devices. Compared to the original title, the version for PC, PS4 and etc. features a few novelties. The biggest one is a split-screen mode that enables from two to four players to play together on a single screen. The graphics were improved as well. The game fully supports console and computer gamepads and it features plenty of content that was gradually added to the mobile version. The game features 12 tournaments, 48 cities, 109 tracks, 31 vehicles and 12 upgrades.
Horizon Chase Turbo for PC, PS4 and etc. references classic 16-bit racing games – the ones that featured two-dimensional graphics that used clever tricks to imitate three dimensions. The action is presented from behind the car and the players are tasked with beating tracks as fast as possible.
There are a few cars with different parameters available. During the game, the players are competing on tracks located in places like deserts, cities and highways that go through green grasses. The driving model is 100% action-focused and the races are very fast-paced.
Horizon Chase Turbo impresses with its looks. The developers had taken the behavior of camera and construction of tracks from two-dimensional games released on 16-bit consoles and computers. At the same time, all objects, cars and surroundings were created in 3D as slightly rough models with simple textures. The effect is very interesting and it looks both modern and like a classic.
The sounds are well as well. The music was composed by Barry Leitch, a Swedish composer that created soundtrack to classic games like Lotus Turbo Challenge, Top Gear and Supercars.
