One game I’ve been having a ton of fun with since its release in early October is the stunt driving game REKT! ($1.99) from the Little Chicken Game Company. It gives you a handful of different stunts you can perform with your car, and then sets you loose in a big arena to go seek out the highest-scoring tricks and lines in the limited time of your run. It’s kind of like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater meets an over-the-top stunt driving game. It’s great! We loved REKT! in our review. One of the biggest requests I’ve seen since it came out though was for more levels to play in. The initial release came with just one level, and although it’s pretty huge and filled with tons of ramps and obstacles, variety is the spice of life. So the developers listened to those requests and have just released a new update which adds a new level called The Bowl for players to explore.
As its name implies this new level does in fact have a bowl in it which makes for some interesting driving, but it’s also filled with tons of other cool new obstacles to get tricky with. I don’t have any actual size comparisons to go on but The Bowl feels even larger than the original level, so if you’ve already been having fun with REKT! then this essentially doubles the amount of fun you can have. It’s not free though! Not in an “actual money" kind of way, but The Bowl will cost you 2,000 in-game coins to unlock before you can play it. And since this is a paid game with no IAP, you’re going to have to earn that fake money the old-fashioned way.
While the new level is the star of this update, there’s also a very welcome new Practice Mode added to the game which means you can cruise around either of the levels for as long as you want with no time restrictions. You can’t earn achievements or unlock any new vehicles in Practice Mode for obvious reasons, but it’s definitely nice to be able to have all the time you need to seek out all the cool lines and obstacles in each course. Finally, this update also adds in two new unlockable cars as well as four hidden vehicles to discover. You might even get a glimpse of a couple of the new cars if you visit the game’s discussion thread in our forums. Overall this is a case of an awesome game getting even better by way of meaty free updates, and it sounds like there’s even more content in the pipeline for REKT! in the not too distant future.
