Race out and give Android game Speedx3D a try

by Tim McLain

With plenty of racing games to choose from in the Android marketplace, it's awesome to see a truly original 3D racer appear in the Droid universe. Take the controls of a lightning-fast vehicle as it travels across a hostile, blocky environment in Speedx 3D.

Using your accelerometer skills to steer, you'll need to keep your ship on the neutral, gray squares and avoid the colored sections. That's because each colored track leads to a correspondingly colored barrier. One tap and bam, down go your limited shields.

Be sure to touch the orange sections to charge your shield, and do your best to stay on the straight and narrow. This simple gameplay will yield many hours of dodging, boosting and general racing fun in a one-of-a-kind environment. Submit your scores to the global leader board for some acclaim in cyberspace.

My favorite feature is the ever-changing raceway engine. You might start in a tunnel of terror, but within seconds, things flatten out, and the stars come out to reveal a standard track stretching forever on each side of you. The difficulty also increases the longer you survive, adding up to a truly immersive and addicting title.

HyperBees: adding a live multiplayer module to your game would take it from great to insane! As it stands today, Speedx 3D is still well worth its small price to get in the game.
