Racing games are a dime a dozen on the Windows Phone Store, but despite the lack of anything revolutionary in game play, you can still lose count of time when you start playing one. Retro Future Racing from Magma Mobile is one such game that has you picking up some fabulous classic cars and racing for the number one spot.
You are initially introduced to the game mechanics in the tutorial mode and must beat the third top time to qualify for the racing event. At the start of the game you only have one car to race with but there are options to upgrade to some powerful ones if you pick up enough coins during gameplay. The game features three tracks but you’ll have to first finish the previous race in the top three places to unlock the others.
The race itself is auto run and the only thing you need to do is guide your car past the twists and turns of the tracks. Tapping on the left side of the screen turns your car to the left and tapping on the right side of the screen shifts your car to the right. The race tracks have the occasional speed boosters and coins which are placed quite close to the edges making it a stiff challenge to grab them. In fact, you can become the king of the track if you can grab as many coins and boosters as you can without losing time.
Retro Racing Future for Windows Phone is free to play, but you do have to put up with the occasional ads.
