New Star GP is an unlicensed Formula 1-themed racing game, which refers to the old days - in terms of visuals, gameplay, and the motorsport discipline itself. It was created by the New Star Games studio, which was established in 2003 and specialized in accessible sports titles, and achieved its greatest success with the New Star Soccer series.

Gameplay

New Star GP takes a simplified look at five decades of F1 history, starting in the 1980s. This primarily concerns cars, which were gradually becoming more technologically advanced. The driving model is arcade and relatively easy to learn, and the competitions take place on fictional tracks in various corners of the world, to a greater or lesser extent inspired by famous real facilities that host Formula 1 events.

We start the career mode from the oldest times and from season to season we "advance" to subsequent eras. In addition to racing, we take on some of the team leader's responsibilities - we unlock vehicle upgrades and select team members who provide us with various "perks". The drivers we compete with have an individual driving style and personality.

Although races are usually not long, during them we have to pay attention to factors such as tire and fuel wear, damage or weather changes. This forces us to make pit stops, during which we can demonstrate our strategic sense, choosing a tire compound appropriate to the conditions and deciding on the fuel load in the tank. We also have to be ready for technical failures of racing cars and crashes.

In addition to traditional races, New Star GP features various forms of challenges, such as time trials, old-school checkpoint competitions, one-on-one duels and elimination races.

Game modes

In addition to single-player gameplay, New Star GP includes a split-screen multiplayer mode for up to four people. We can compete not only in individual races, but also in entire championships, which can be freely configured.

Technology

The audio and the visuals refer to racing games from the 1990s, using a "low poly" graphics style characterized by simplified three-dimensional objects.
