If you like vehicles and have ever thought what would happen if you could crash uncontrollably, Speed Demons is the simulator you have to know. To win it will not be necessary only to cross the finish line, you must crash into the immense traffic never seen in a video game on modern and endless highways. Do you dare to be a demon behind the wheel?
Speed Demons: Speed Demons, the best races are with an aerial view
Something that characterizes Speed Demons, in addition to crashes, is the aerial view with which you can observe all the vehicles involved in the traffic. You can literally pass over all cars, trucks and any vehicle that crosses your path. Based on the laws of physics, you can zigzag at high speed and eliminate your competitors by moving them the long way.
Will you only have one car to play? NO, you will have more than 25 vehicles at your disposal from small hatchbacks to racing cars or huge trucks. If you want you can customize them to your liking as long as you get experience points in each race.
There are 19 different road environments, more than 100 vehicles on a single screen in traffic, modern graphics and a soundtrack that will infect you with the adrenaline of the game itself. Speed Demons is not a classic racing game, it is an advance to the thrill of endless traffic that you can destroy at will.
The game environment
I was able to explore Speed Demons on the Mac and the controls couldn’t be the best. It is compatible with a remote control, but if you do not have one available it is not necessary. With the direction arrows you can change lanes, brake or invoke a movement to get out of a multiple crash. The speed is set automatically, all you need is to crash into vulnerable gray vehicles and colored opponents. You can gain more speed if an opposing car propels you from behind.
Speed Demons has 8 different game modes, from the typical race, through a rally, escape, chase, devastation and much more. I have to confess that my favorites were the getaway, the chase, and the devastation. If they gave me the choice of one, maybe I’d be left with devastation. In this game mode you have to drive a passenger truck knocking down all the vehicles you can for a limited time.
And if these game modes are not enough for you, Speed Demons has hundreds of events available with which you can compete and challenge different opponents. These events are customized with vehicles and the available game modes, it will be up to you if they catch your attention.
If racing games bore you, give Speed Demons a try
In both shooters and motorsport games I like the third person view too much. It seems to me that Speed Demons it’s so adaptable and intuitive that you’ll love it on the first test run. The more you play you will discover more chapters of the story mode. If you want to explore all the possibilities of the game, it is better to go chapter by chapter and discover the unexpected. Sure, if you want to take practice you can play the different modes until you are ready.
Something that captivates me about Speed Demons is the modern graphics. You will notice that the effects that it gives off from both vehicles and crashes are wonderful. The light show is guaranteed on the road. The soundtrack perfectly accompanies each scene, I suggest you play this title with headphones to get more involved in the action.
You can play on your Mac and continue the game on your iPhone or iPad thanks to seamless iCloud save. In case you don’t want to play on a device for fear of losing your progress, Speed Demons is compatible with all Apple devices. Despite not having multiplayer support, this game is perfect for killing boredom on the go. Its weight is less than 200 MB so it adapts to any device.
In conclusion, a racing game of 10
Contrary to the laid-back style we saw last week with the Lifeslide review, Speed Demons will take you on an endless driving adventure. It is very nice to know a title that does not demand many hardware resources, you can enjoy it from an iPhone to a Mac, good doses of adrenaline and action are guaranteed.
