AND

Horizon Chase is a racing game for AND and iOS inspired by the 16-bit classics of the genre. The production was developed by Aquiris Game Studio and belongs to the premium category, which means that itís devoid of micropayments.

Mechanics

The title references classical 16-bit racing games, the ones that offered just two-dimensional graphics but would create the feeling of the third dimensional with cunning visual tricks. The action is observed from a camera placed behind the car, and our task is to complete routes as quickly as possible, of course.

There are several cars of different performance at our disposal. While playing, we race on tracks located in, among other things, deserts, city outskirts, and motorways that run through green plains. The driving model is entirely arcade, while the tournaments we participate in are very fast-paced.

Technical aspects

Horizon Chase for AND and iOS impresses with its quality. The developers took the camera behavior and racing track design from two-dimensional racing games for 16-bit consoles and computers, but at the same time, all elements, both the available cars and routes, were created in 3D, in the form of slightly angular models covered with simple textures. It creates a very interesting effect which on one hand looks modern but on the other references the old-school style.

The gameís soundtrack is equally well-made. The music was composed by Barry Leitch, a Scottish composer who created soundtrack for such classic series as Lotus Turbo Challenge, Top Gear, and Supercars.
