If your kid is a fan of cars, you’re probably used to having your home turned into a race track—toy cars zooming over tables, track pieces winding around the floor, furniture being used as ramps, and every so often a stray piece ending up underfoot. Ouch!
But Budge Studios, the makers of Budge World, imagined a race track without the mess: RaceCraft - Build & Race. In it, kids start with a blank slate, then build their own track piece by piece, adding in tight turns, ramps, and loop-the-loops wherever they want in order to create a ride that’s a real rush. Then, they can choose their favourite car and race on the track they just created, quick-tapping the screen to go faster.
A couple of quick-witted race car announcers walk them through it all, offering tips and cheeky commentary on their creations. And when it comes time to zoom around the track, they can even get a friend (or parent—we know you want to try it!) to take the other side of the screen and race.
As kids progress, they’ll access new props and cars. With their tracks becoming more eccentric and their stunts more daring, they’ll never get bored. Soon, they’ll be adding rails to grind over, dropping in trampolines to bounce off at the end of ramps, and making the tracks slick with mud or water for a slippery new twist. It’s the adrenaline rush they’ve always wanted—without all those little plastic pieces you don’t want.
