Paint the town with Splash Cars on Android
Craneballs studios is following up their massively popular Overkill series with a quirky driving game. Splash Cars is something of a departure for this game development company, which is more well known for its action games like those in the Gun Master series. However, although Splash Cars starts out relaxing, upgrades and more challenging maps quickly escalate it into a twitch-happy whirlwind of frenetic, paint-splattered action.
You are… meh, it doesn’t really matter who you are. You’ve got a car, and you’re in a drab, boring neighborhood, and you’ve had enough of the pace of life around here. From the first tap, you slam your foot on the petal and never look back. As you cruise recklessly around the neighborhood, magic paint of some kind splashes in your wake, returning the grey landscape and pallid houses to their original vibrancy.
But, there are those who would consider such behavior dangerously non-conformist. Swing close enough to a cop, and they’ll engage in full pursuit. These officers of the law have been educated at the Los Santos Police Department Training Academy, so the only course of action they know to take when they witness someone committing a minor infraction is to ram their vehicles into the offender until it is completely destroyed.
What’s worse is that trundling dump trucks putter in and out of the map, spreading boring grey paint over your hard-won territory. However, if you can get close enough to splatter one of these foes, they’ll start seeing things your way and begin spreading your gospel of polychromatism for you.
The controls are deceptively simple. There is a turn left button and a turn right button. That’s it. No breaks, no slowing down – your character has his foot on the accelerator until the vehicle runs out of gas or is destroyed. Fortunately, there are jerry cans of gasoline scattered about most maps, giving you precious additional energy to continue your paint slinging. Collect coins and buy new vehicles and upgrades to face the challenges of increasingly dense and complex maps.
The game is free to play with some in-app purchases. If running from the cops while pouring paint from a moving vehicle sounds like your kind of party, click the button below to download it from the Google Play Store.
