Thunder Desert GP

My first OUYA game review is here on John's Race Space! Thunder Desert GP from Foppygames is a completely free game for the OUYA where you try to complete ten laps around a course. There is nothing in the way of simulation-type racing. This is just old-school, old-fashioned, classic racing. Is it any good, though? I'm going to offer my thoughts on this game in this blog post.

Here is my first post of 2015 for "John's Race Space." Happy new year, everyone!

--- Thunder Desert GP ---

Thunder Desert GP is a game created by Foppygames. It was released in April 2014 exclusively for the OUYA gaming console. You ride on a motorcycle around one of two tracks. The game can be thought of as a hybrid of Pole Position and Hang-On. Only difference is that you are not qualifying for anything, and you aren't racing any point-to-point races. One track is in the desert, and another is run in a forest setting. The main goal is to try to complete ten laps around the two courses. Even if you don't manage to complete the ten lap challenge, you still can earn recognition for completing nine laps (silver) or eight laps (bronze). Go for the gold! Thunder Desert GP features an 8-bit musical score from coda for added nostalgia.

Unless you are just not a great racing gamer, it shouldn't be too difficult to even clear at least three laps. Each time you cross the finish line, you get progressively less time to complete the rest of the race. Keep crashes to a minimum. If you can, allow yourself to crash no more than twice. The good thing about this game is that you don't have to worry about shifting gears like with the aforementioned Pole Position and Hang-On. All you need to use are the throttle and the brakes.

My "Thunder Desert GP" Review.

Thunder Desert GP is just a classic racing game. It is a modern retro-type racing game that is very fun. I said this game is more like a hybrid of Pole Position and Hang-On. In my view, this game is more like Pole Position with motorcycles. It plays and feels this way, and in no way am I talking down about this game. Thunder Desert GP is completely free. Maybe you wish there were more tracks or something, but this game is great. I even personally sent a Tweet on Twitter to the developer saying that I rated "Thunder Desert GP" five stars on my OUYA. If you just love old-school racing, you likely won't be disappointed with this title.

That's all from me. I hope you enjoyed this review of mine!

I hope I've entertained you a bit with my review of "Thunder Desert GP." There is hardly anything to complain about with this game. That is... unless you think the OUYA is just a terrible console that isn't even worth playing. At the end of the day, I still have a job to do here- blog about racing games and driving games. Have a great day/night, and thank you for reading! Take care and be well.
