Geometry Shift DemoPrototype Description:
Ever since cars have been invented over a century ago, people have ached to go faster and faster, although we now reached a limit when it comes to safety. Even if the land speed record is actually a bit over the sound speed right now, we obviously cannot put the same power into a regular car. On the other hand, once new technology becomes available and we figure out how to prevent accidents, other cool things might start to become possible. Geometry Shift is not your usual type of racing game, but it certainly has what it takes to increase your adrenaline level by quite a bit. In essence, you get to drive spaceships around weirdly shaped tracks, while trying to compete with other racers and stay inside the track as well. The gameplay is more challenging than it sounds, since it only takes a small mistake to leave the designated area and reset to a previous position. The reset is actually the most frustrating part, because there are certain checkpoints you regress to if you donít pay enough attention to the track. Given the fact that there is no actual speed limit, due to the fact that your ship can accelerate as much as you want, things can get out of hand in a hurry. The trick is to make use of the particle break, which allows you to both reduce speed and improve your steering to deal with tight corners.
