Extreme top-down racing game 'Bloody Rally Show' is out now and it's good

By - | Views: 16,216

Bloody Rally Show has been mentioned here a few times, as the developer gave GOL early access to test it and it's a top-down racer I've certainly enjoyed watching grow.

This is absolutely not your usual 2D racing sim either, it's set in a dystopian future with a rather unique blending of racing, battling and some rogue-lite mechanics to give you a huge amount of content to play through full of missions and challenges.

Cars have pretty good handling to them, you can customize your vehicle style too, multiple different game modes from standard racing to battle modes with weapons, car tuning and upgrades, split-screen support for local multiplayer, ghost vehicle support to beat other people and more.

Being able to load up a new campaign and have completely different tracks each time is great. It generates the tracks on-the-fly on each campaign, so you never quite know what to expect from it. Not everything is like that though, there's a Daily Challenge that does give everyone the same track which you can keep repeating to try and beat times. My first attempt on it today, put me at number 16 so that's not bad at all.

The actual feature list is long, a little daunting perhaps but a clear show of just how much effort has been put into crafting what's now one of the best top-down racers available on PC and with same-day Linux support at release it's worth a look.

If you're after the racing but don't want the Blood, the good news is that can be turned off. You can actually turn off quite a few of the visuals if they distract you. Lights, smoke, weather effects and more can all be tweaked if you wish to do so.

While it's now release and technically finished, this is a full game, the developer is planning to continue adding new and fresh content over time. You can find Bloody Rally Show on Steam.

Looking quite nice. This might actually be the perfect game to invest my Rocket League money in!

My initial impression so far is that this is a pretty excellent game. It reminds me of 80/90's era top-down racing games. Gameplay feels solid, nice music and the potato style graphics look and work well for this game.

I loved how i was broke and couldn’t pay the fee to race, and the game sent me to the track anyway, as a pedestrian ! I had a camera to take pictures, and make some money. The closer to danger i was, the better. Then, good angle and action, and bingo.

Instabuy for me. Absolutely great. Reminds me of Supercars II on the Amiga. It's surprisingly well formed and polished for an Indie title - campaign, leaderboards, car editor, map editor etc. Very low system requirements as well, it seems.
