Think you have the stomach to battle race at breakneck speeds inside of a mecha you forged from a bunch of parts? If so, the newly released Break Arts II might just be the right flavour for you.
Developed by MercuryStudio and published by AGM PLAYISM, this F-Zero-esque racing title was originally known as a Japanese indie game for smartphones and tablets. The first game in the series (BREAKARTS: Cyber Battle Racing) was released back in May of 2015, and has received over 100,000 downloads and a 4.1/5 rating from the Google Playstore.
By far the most engaging aspect of the Break Arts series is its robot customization. The developers of Break Arts II have honed in on this aspect, boasting that ‘robot and weapon customization is the biggest change since the previous game.’ One can expect the routine of gameplay to follow a “design, race, get parts, repeat” formula, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It will be interesting, however, to see if the fan base translates from the previous freemium model to a flat $14.99 USD. Having said that, the graphics alone are breathtaking enough to warrant more than a gander, despite the game’s longevity still being in question. Break Arts II is available on Steam.
The developer’s trailer below shows exactly what to expect with the newest iteration of Break Arts.
