Description

Reckless Racing is a top-down dirty track racing game. It features three different game modes, each one with 3 difficulty levels (bronze, silver and gold):
  • Dirt Rally: a regular race mode, against the 5 other characters.
  • Hot Lap: a time trial mode. The player gets to see a "ghost" of his/her previous lap, trying to beat his/her own time.
  • Delivery: the player has to pick up goods and deliver them to their destination within a time limit. A minimap shows where the next destination is.
The player selects one of six available characters (Cletus, Otis, Bubba, Lurlene, Floyd and Hank), each one riding a different vehicle (from trucks to rally cars, with customizable colors in the iPad version). There are 5 tracks to choose from (8 in the iPad and Zeebo versions), each with its reverse version to be unlocked by earning medals.

The game offers 5 different steering modes: standard, tank, tilt (which uses the accelerometer function, where available), half wheel and full wheel. There's a multiplayer option for up to 4 players (on Dirty Rally or Hot Lap modes). Best times can be posted on online leaderboards and ghost races can be traded between players.
