I downloaded Shine Runner from Amazon on Friday night. I ended up playing it for the next hour or so. I’m not very good at racing games – I’ll admit that right up front – but this game is so much more than just a racing game.
Yes, you do get to race a flat-bottomed fanboat through a backwoods bayou. However; the whole point is to collect money and purchase items that you can sell (hopefully for a profit) at the next location.
So, there’s a little strategy involved that usually isn’t in a pure racing game. That’s the part I liked best – trying to guess how the money is going to pay out. What should you purchase to make the most amount of money, because at the end of the game, the amount of money is what counts. For the racing part of the game, well, you can’t go wrong. You get to smash into everything. Pretty much if you enjoy destroying docks, shacks and outhouses this is the game for you. If you enjoy outrunning the police (and, who wouldn’t?), this is the game for you. At only $.99 on Amazon, you really can’t go wrong. But, don’t just trust my opinion, view their trailer and make up your own mind.
