Aerial racing simulators aren't really a dime a dozen in the interactive entertainment space. I'm not sure why but they only seem to appear every once in a while. Well, Gugila (not to be confused with the Tinto Brass film Caligula) has released a new free-to-play aerial racing game for PC called Altitude0: Lower & Faster.
Players are tasked with hopping into a motorized and flying fast, low and dangerous through various checkpoint races against other NPCs and players. It's simple yet effective.
As noted in the press release...
This game is about speed, skills and competition. It's really up to you and not about a predefined in-game character, whether you improve your flying skills and become a flying ace. You will feel like an air race pilot, thinking about how to shave off fractions of a second at each corner and curve, and how to fly at best angles. Dance in the air!
Well if you think that dancing in the air is a cool thing to do, you can hop in on the game right now. That's right, it's free-to-play and available right now.
The gameplay video above gives gamers a very sexy view of some dynamic gameplay and the team have excelled at overcoming one of the biggest problems a racing game can have: a sense of speed. The planes look fast, they move fluently and you can perform some snazzy stunts in mid-air at the blink of an eye.
To be a lower-budget game Gugila seems to have focused mostly on trying to capture a good sense of fun, without getting bogged down too much in some of the other elements that can keep a fun game from being a great experience.
Majority of the basic gameplay elements are available without requiring any real-life coin. But if you enjoy what they're offering in Altitude0 you can always show your support by picking up a few things from the cash shop.
If you're not entirely convinced about this competitive flight sim, feel free to check out a few of the screenshots below and another trailer to give you an idea of what the gameplay is like.
