All Your Favourite Car Games, and New Ones, Too

Satisfy your need for speed playing all your favourite car racing games in a virtual environment.

Devoted gamers believe that Steve Jobs invented the computer mouse so that computerized car racing games would become both easier and more exciting. Once the mouse empowered a user to turn the cursor at oblique angles and trace curves, the horizons of virtual car racing stretched all the way out to the end of the infinite…and beyond. Simple as they are, car racing games remain among the most popular both on the internet and on handheld wireless applications. Those same devoted gamers believe Steve Jobs invented the iPhone’s motion sensor strictly for the sake of improving car racing apps.

You probably know that car games are deceptively simple: Follow the race course going as fast as you possibly can. How hard can that be? You’ve been following the same basic principles since you played car racing games on your old Commodore 64 system. Except that now, with the advent of 3D and a few other high-tech complications, game developers can bank the turns, create more dramatic spin-outs, and make the steering both more demanding and more precise.

Build your skills with “Dune Buggy.”
You may have been the Jimmie Johnson of your game console circuit, but playing car games with your computer requires adapting your skills; instead of a joy stick and a couple of buttons, you have your mouse or touchpad, your arrow keys, and your space bar. Online car games require their own unique set of skills and multi-tasks. Expect to crash spectacularly and burn in great balls of fire your first few times around the track. Of course, everybody knows “the fails” are as much fun as the great races.

Try “Dune Buggy,” one of the most popular entry-level car games at the internet’s most popular virtual arcades. “Dune Buggy” teaches you to move with the arrow keys and jump with the space bar, challenging you to navigate over, under, around, and through a variety of jumps, dips, and obstacles as you make your way through an off-road race course. Purely a game of speed and dexterity, “Dune Buggy” gets you in shape for more sophisticated car games, and you will know you are prepared for greater challenges when the trustworthy old buggy grows tiresome.

Advance to “FMX Team.”

Okay, strictly speaking, it is not a “car” game, but it counts among the leaders in the larger genre of driving games. FMX Team tests just how well you can manoeuvre those arrow keys and the space bar as you take your motorcycle through a series of tricky motorcycle stunts. The screen shows you the dirt track; a box in the screen’s upper left corner shows your stunts. You may choose among three different bikes, each equipped for different performance characteristics. As you get more comfortable with the game, you naturally will select the bike best suited to your style and level. FMX Team takes you through fifteen progressively more difficult levels; and, by the time you reach level 15, your fingers will fly around your keys so fast your friends will see just a flesh-tone blur.

Samsung Galaxy S – Films and Games and More, Oh My!

Samsung has unleashed all it has to challenge the iPhone with the Samsung Galaxy S, and after a hopeful update of Android to the 2.2 operating system, it is easily one of the smartest of smart phones. The new version of Android will give the phone a great bump in class with smother internet browsing and enhanced navigation. It will also provide the Galaxy S a better done pinch and zoom function, allowing even those with the worst of eyesight to read every word on the handset’s massive four inch screen.

The updated Google maps with location navigation will help in refreshing directions from exact locations, due to the internal GPS, and the new version of Flash will help those improved colours to look even more vivid. Not only will the internet and apps look good, but work shot on the HD camera will feel a little more HD when the playback feature is used. Speaking of films, Samsung is rolling out a movies and games package for new users of the Galaxy S that is sure to impress.

Samsung is giving away a bundle worth over £50 and offers at least six games and three movies through their Gameloft and Samsung Movies apps, which give access to thousands of hit movie and game titles. The offer is to run through March 31stand will need to be redeemed by the 30thof April by registering the phone with the original receipt for your pay monthly phone.

Beyond the new media package, there are still the same great features to the Samsung Galaxy S that has made it one of the pinnacle smart phones. The five megapixel camera provides incredible pictures from a mobile phone, coping greatly with poor lighting situations even without a built in flash. The music player provides great sound and new music just a finger tap away with 3G connectivity to download all of the classics. And the battery handles all of the multi-media-ing very well with a using time of up to 6.3 hours and a standby time of 24 hours.
