Be Strong Be The Last
A downloadable game for Windows and Linux
It’s the third millennium on planet Earth. Technology has become impressive and space trips are within everyone’s reach. However, technology has also completely changed the concepts of entertainment and having fun, with robots doing most of the work. Nowadays, car races last only a couple of milliseconds and nobody particularly enjoys them anymore.
That’s why a completely new kind of race has been invented: Be Strong, Be the Last.
A race in which the slowest wins!… Except that cars accelerate on their own, drivers can’t brake and the edges of the track accelerate the car even more! The only way to slow down a little bit is to hit other cars or carefully placed death traps like rocks, walls and of course that herd of sheeps crossing the track right now. Only the bravest (or the luckiest) will reach the end of the track after all the others and be the rightful champion! In this peculiar race, challengers from all over the galaxy compete to gain prizes and bring honor to their native planet’s technology.
Who’s going to prevail? Only you can find it out! Buy your ticket now and remember: slow and steady wins the race!
Be Strong, Be the Last is a 3D racing single player game with the possibility of playing local multiplayer with split screen.
In this racing game the goal is quite unusual: the player who arrives last wins the race.
Each player will choose a character with its own specific kart before each race.
The player who arrives last wins the race.
The driving system is designed to accelerate the car on its own and there’s no braking system so the player has to find out a way to slow down her race. She can also drift to obtain a better steering, but if abused it will overheat and be disabled for some time.
Driving well is essential to avoid hitting the edges of the track, traps and the opponents’ attacks (that accelerates the kart), while reaching obstacles to slow down the kart.
Another basic mechanic of the game is the collision between karts. Players will need to use them to slow down their kart and accelerate their opponent's kart. Whenever a kart hits another one, the latter gets pushed in the direction of the collision. If performed correctly the car that is hit will be accelerated while the hitting one will be slowed down. If both cars try to push each other the result will be that they will both slow down a little bit.
Karts also have the possibility of using abilities to alter the course of the race.
Each character has a unique set of abilities so that the player can find the perfect character for her kind of gameplay and tastes.
Abilities divide in three categories:
Counter: it’s used to push away the opponents in close surroundings, but can also be used to avoid being hit by traps, opponents’ projectiles and be accelerated by the track’s edges;
Projectiles: are used to hit the opponents to speed them up and can be shot both in front and behind the kart;
Specials: have several effects on the player’s kart or on her opponents;
Upon usage, each ability will consume a certain amount of power. Power slowly regens while driving (the drift maneuver increases this amount). It’s also possible to regain a huge amount of power by collecting the pickups scattered on the track.
Graphically the game is in cartoon style with fun characters and colorful settings.
