Country Ride (Free) by Dion Medina is a racing game with your beat-up van to get to the finish line in one piece. While most racing games have you going around a paved track, Country Ride takes you on back roads while you hold on for dear life.

Country Ride is not only about getting to the end of the race. It’s about the finesse of knowing when to tilt or lean back to keep your car in the upright position. Although a man that I will call Jedediah looks at you like you’re going to kill him, I wouldn’t be too concerned for his safety. His vehicle looks like a remodeled school bus. It could go head to head with a tank and hold its own.

Along the track, there are cheeseburgers and milkshakes for you to pick up for additional points. Apparently, this crazy drive started out because Jedediah had the munchies. However, judging by the looks he gives you, I believe that he regrets his decision about halfway through each level.

There are 10 levels for you to play through, and each one comes with its own unique track and scenery. There are jungles, deserts, and mountains for you to make your way across.

In this game, you can’t move on to the next level if you don’t complete the previous one. In many games there’s a way to skip a level if there is one that you’re stuck on, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with this one. This game is all or nothing.
