Racing games on Facebook?
Posted by Joshuatly Tee
Online social games on Facebook cover many games genre, but one genre that we dont see that frequently is racing games on facebook.
Seeing that not many racing games on facebook, make me wonder if browser base racing social games is feasible. In fact I hardly recall the last racing game I play or saw on facebook. Is that the problem of the game genre itself or simply no one had nailed it yet?
If I remember correctly, there are not much racing games on facebook, one of them is Car Town which according to AppData, the games doesnt seems to doing too well. On the other hand, there is one racing game on Google+ Game which is GT Racing: Motor Academy. I havent got a chance to try it out myself (due to my pc problem and also I dont have a good connection for the big download), but heard its quite impressive they can make it work on browser. Kudos to Gameloft for making that happen.
It seems something is coming over to facebook if you are looking forward to play racing game on facebook. KartRider, one of the very popular game Korean game that also did very well on iTunes AppStore is coming to Facebook according to insidesocialgames. This news is very interesting seeing there is not much serious browser based racing game, maybe if this proven to be success, more developers and publishers will be looking into developing and publishing more games of this genre on facebook or google+.
What do you think about browser base racing game? Its definately a exciting genre for us casual gamers to check out, as well as the serious games who want to have a bit of fun on the go on their browser.
