H-Craft Championship Sci-Fi Racer Is Now Free
Posted , 20 March 2014 at 3:05 pm UTC / 6454 views

You all love free games right? Good news as it is free games Thursday here at GOL and we bring you news that H-Craft Championship has been unshackled from its price-tag and is FREE.

The game is nearly a full 7 years old, so it's nice to see the developers make it free.

You can get the full version for Linux (and Windows) here: http://irrgheist.com/media/div/hcraft_v1_2.zip

About
H-Craft Championship is a fun to play scifi-racer. It features 28+ racetracks, a unique driving physics simulation, a fresh design, and a challenging Championship mode.
The 2 Timeattack modes offer the option to exchange ghostdrivers with your friends for competition.
On "Rivals" up to 4 players can have an exciting tournament on a single PC.

Has anyone ever played it? is it worth checking out? Let us know!

Ps. Thanks for letting me know Robert.

Hi

I bought this game as a digital version five years ago, and I have to admit that was better game than Ballistics ported by LGP. I spent a lot hours with this game, and sometimes I still play it. In the last year, I bought this game on CD but their website didn't work. Fortunately I found order page using Google I and received the game after a week. Now I see this sad news. I was expecting that Irrgheist will publish new two games because I saw some screenshot on their website, but it didn't happen.

I really want to see Mac version of this game, and I don't care about the version dedicated for Android.

You are very welcome Liam. I though it will be more polite to register before posting this time, so here I am. I've been commenting as the grumpy Edgar in the past because it isn't easy to remember all those passwords... yes I'm getting old.

I found this game the last year, played the demo and loved it, but their website was down and I couldn't find any place to buy. With some research I found the developers and they sent me a free copy of the game, they are amazing!

The game is difficult to learn but easy to master, just forget all you know about driving cars because the physics are very different. What I do is release the accelerator far from the curves, rotate the H-Craft while it slides and accelerate again when the curve begins. Better with joypad/gamepad.

As I read in another review, the IA is unforgiving and very hard to overtake, but as the tracks are short and you can instantly restart, kamikaze is a viable (and fun) strategy.

It would be better to either say 'freeware' or 'free software' so that it's immediately clear which 'free' you mean. I guess it means freeware in this case.

I think you should try it:

cd craft

padsp ./hcraft

Sometimes, you have to try to run it several times. I think it is a known bug in this game.
