Editors’ Notes

In Thumb Drift, rides don’t last long: you’re going way too fast and the roads are like corkscrews. But we can’t stop jumping in to see how many coins we can grab and how many hellacious curves we can drift through before we crash and burn. Terrific one-touch controls help you meet the challenge head-on, and ace drivers can unlock dozens of cars as they go.

New Game Mode Idea?

I’ve loved this game for a while now. I still have it installed since it came out, but after a while things started to get a bit too repetitive(as in constantly fatally crashing watching your little dummy fly across your screen). Which is why I’m suggesting a new mode that could possibly be added to the game. I watched one of my other friends play the game for the first time and noticed that in the tutorial you’re drifting smoothly and slowly, unlike the actual game where you’re full throttling down the track until you crash from an impossible turn Initial D style. Call it whatever you want but i think a slow drifting mode would be a bit more enjoyable considering the fact that you won’t get nervous about crashing full speed, it’s also less intense since drifting slow is smooth and relaxing. I’m sure many people like me like to keep it in 2nd gear, This is all I ask and this game is perfection.

This game is very simple an clean. The animations and UI are snappy and easy to navigate. I understand this game isn’t supposed to be 100% realistic, but the way you control the car doesn’t make sense. For example, the more you drag to turn your car, the smaller the turn radius. In other words, no matter how fast you are moving or how sharp you turn, you always get the same “grip”. Making this game all about how fast you can react to the turns and how precise your timing is. It’s hard to explain but it just doesn’t represent actual drifting very well. And for an app purely based around drifting, it’s disappointing there is no more strategy involved besides swiping left and right really fast and trying to avoid walls. The game itself isn’t bad, but it’s a bit stale. Too bad they already released the game with these mechanics, now they can’t change them. It would be like Call of Duty changing to a third third person shooter (but obviously not to the same degree.) Well devolved game, just missing some logic. On another note, ads come up after every 5 or so attempts, (could also be time based, I don’t know) and they aren’t very intrusive to the game compared to other games I’ve experienced. Overall a decent game.
