Drifting game - Drift Legends
The ultimate car racing game, drift in New Zealand, Australia, UK, USA and Japan. Available for iPhone and iPod touch.
The ultimate in fun racing games, Drift Legends is an arcade racing game where the idea is to go sideways as much as possible. Tear up the track and the street in five awesome levels, and if you want more racetracks there are 23 additional levels in the iPhone version. This online car driving game comes with a backstory – you're a kid from a small town in New Zealand and you've just got your license. With no prospects as a rugby player, becoming a drifter is what you set your heart on. You work your way up the drifting motorsport ladder through Australia, UK, America and finally the mighty touge tracks of Japan.
Mobile phone game
Grab the full version of Drift Legends from the iTunes store. You can play 25 tracks on your iPod or iPhone. Each track takes less than 30 seconds to play, but much longer to master. It's the perfect game while you're on the bus, or just need a quick break.
What is drifting
Drifting is a motorsport where the driver is judged on the vehicle speed and control, and the angle of the car. This means the car is kept in an almost constant skid. There are drift battles, which are two cars against one another, and exhibition drifting which is one car following a set line. Drifting started as a racing technique in Japan and was adopted into a motorsport niche of its own in the 1990s. Now it has evolved into a competitive sport, popular worldwide. Drifting competitions are run on racing circuits, sports arenas and even car parking lots. Drift cars have become highly specialized, and car setup (suspension, wheel camber, LSD and more) makes all the difference.
Screenshots from the game
Fotherington Green in the UK sees you drifting on an airfield with WWII planes scattered around. The track is tricky because it contains sections that aren't clearly marked where runways intersect.
Wobbarim in Australia is a red dirt track in the outback. Australia is the second territory and to unlock it you need to complete New Zealand. It has a loop which you can get round twice to boost your score.
