Description

The Race of Champions is an annual racing event where some of the world's greatest drivers compete head to head in identical cars. This adaptation of the competition for mobile devices is played from a third-person perspective and can be played with a number of different control setups. Accelerating can be either automatic or manual and the car can be steered with both tilt controls and two kinds of touch control. The player can also choose to turn on different levels of steering and brake assistance. Although the primary perspective is third-person, the camera can also be changed to a hood or front view.

There are three different game modes available. The main mode is the championship where the player starts out with a qualifying stage, then moves on to a group stage before reaching the semi finals and the grand final. For each race in the championship different cars are used. When the championship is over, the player is awarded prestige points for each won race. By winning championships the player unlocks new cars and race tracks. These can then be used in the time challenge mode where the player competes against the time of another player. A ghost car shows the performance of the other player. Finally, there is the duel mode where the player competes against other player with the goal of acquiring prestige points. To succeed the player has to win two out of three races, with different cars and swapping lanes each time. By doing so the player jumps one prestige point ahead of the opponent but if he loses, he will drop half the point difference between the players.
