Battle Riders combat racing game zooms into the App Store to wreck the competition

September 5, 2014

If you’re looking for a new “Death Race”-inspired game to kill time on, you’re in luck. Meet Battle Riders.

Battle Riders is a new game that lets you participate in vehicular combat races on your iOS device. It features seven unique cars, five weapon types, three kinds of power-ups, and nine tracks (with reverse versions) across three different environments.

And while it doesn’t have a multiplayer mode (at least not yet), Battle Riders lets you hit the tracks in six racing modes: Duel, Battle Race, Survival, Elimination, Clean Race, and Time Trial. Moreover, it lets you unlock three challenge modes: Time Attack, Minefield, and Barrels.

The game also doesn’t have in-app purchases, thank you very much. However, it enables you to upgrade your cars and buy weapons using credits earned by wrecking your opponents’ rides, which can also earn you a top spot in the Wrecks Leaderboard on Game Center.

Battle Riders, by the way, offers tilt- or touch-based controls for steering your car and wrecking the competition.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Battle Riders is available now on the App Store for $1.99.
