It has been a long road of development for Polarbit Games, the team behind the Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart series and Konami Krazy Racing. Their kart racing game, Cracking Sands, has finally made a splash on the Google Play Store after nearly a year in development. The premise of Cracking Sands is easy to understand — start driving and pray you have the bigger gun.
Customization is a strong point in Cracking Sands. You can customize your very own kart using a wide array of parts. Just about anything on your kart can be switched out with something else, including your character’s outfit. Guns can even be placed on the kart to make sure you’re always in first place! Cracking Sands is much more violent than your average friendly Mario Kart race.
To ensure you stay in first place, a variety of tools are available to use at your discretion. From land mines to deadly machine guns, you will be able to take out your opponent with ease and win yourself the race. It is a lot harder than it sounds though. Racing in a straight line and attacking your opponents is no easy task. Regardless, what fun would Cracking Sands be if you could not play with your friends?
While Cracking Sands comes with some fun singleplayer levels, the game also features online play, which makes it worth the price. If you’re interested in picking up the game, you can get it off of the Google Play Store for $4.99.
