Beach Buggy Blitz

If you're the proud owner of a Tegra device there's a great new game you have to try, Beach Buggy Blitz. The folks at Vector Unit (the same people who brought us Shine Runner and Riptide GP) have really outdone themselves with this one. 

In Beach Buggy Blitz, you're tasked with driving from waypoint to waypoint, in an endless driving game. Along the way you'll find coins, which you can use to buy power ups and new equipment, all sorts of destructible scenery (carnage is fun), and a beautifully rendered environment. The effects, physics, and gameplay take full advantage of Nvidia's Tegra extensions, for one of the funnest driving games to ever hit Android.

It's addictive, and it's harder than it looks. While you're power sliding around corners, and laying waste to crabs and tiki torches, the clock is ticking. If you can't make it to the waypoint before the timer runs out, your game is done and you have to start all over again.

Right now the game is for Tegra devices only, but Vector has plans to bring it to other devices "soon". If you're like me and bought a Tegra device to play great games, you just found one. Grab it from Google Play through the link above, it's free (with in-app purchases for coins if you like). There's also a quick video of the game in action after the break.

Beach Buggy Blitz for Tegra devices is totally tubular, man (and totally free)


Fun game, just played it for half an hour on my Transformer TF300. Earning coins seemed like a bit of a slow slug at the start though, so I was tempted into buying 5000 coins (at a very reasonable 12 DKK ~ $2).
In an upgraded "Lambi" I've managed 7200 meters so far, but it's definitely not an easy game.

I haven't quite figured out if the levels are actually randomly generated? They tend to look the same for at least a kilometer or two, but then they seem to deviate a bit here and there after that.

Another fun reason I wish I had a Nexus 7. Not sure what that will happen though so hopefully this will be compatible with my Skyrocket soon.

I'm totally hooked on this game, even if for only a few minutes at a time. It's a great little time killer and looks fantastic on my Infinity.

I do have a problem though in that the tablet doesn't have enough horsepower to push the highest graphic settings with so many pixels.
