Indie Mon: Ocean City Racing
Description: 200th video right here! I didn't plan it out, but it turned out to be the silliest Indie Mon yet! Take out your car keys because we're playing Ocean City Driving! Subscribe, and let me know if there are any indie games you'd like to see on Indie Mon!
Script: Hello Nick here with this week's Indie Mon. You don't normally think of racing games when it comes to Indie, but I got one right here called Ocean City Racing. Look even the Steam page says no publisher Indie. And look! It's only $2.99 on Windows.
I should mention that price again. $2.99. Since there were many times I thought this isn't that great of a racing game... oh wait it's only $2.99. It's actually a fine racing game. It's just I have access to better ones. I mean why can I use my controller every where except for the menus!???..... oh right. $2.99.
I started my journey with the free roam mode where I can walk around and talk to the locals. Uh are you ok? It's ok lady just relax no need to get antsy. Sir what are you doing on the subway tracks?
So I find a parked car, and hop right in. Then I drive, and drive. Really what else would you expect in a free roam mode. Let's move on to the racing mode. Here we go! Nothing but racing opponents, and I gotta say this map is actually pretty detailed for $2.99. This amount of detail is at most worth $5.99. There's also a time trial mode if you don't like racing other people.
So the game is wonky, and the car physics are not realistic what so ever. I guess wonky is a nice way of putting it, and a lot of people would say this game is just bad. That price tag just keeps staring at me though. *ghost voice* $2.99!
The soundtrack is actually descent. Perfect dad rock soundtrack. This one song reminds me of that song from the cartoon movie Heavy Metal. Well it did at least while I was playing it. Still I can't complain about the soundtrack since I'm into the rock genre.
Overall Ocean City Racing is for someone that wants a simple racing game for a cheap price. If you already own a well known racing series like Test Drive, Driver, Burnout, Need For Speed, Forza....... Jet Moto, Crash Team Racing, and hell even Shaun Palmer Snowboarding had a racing mode. Then you can stick with them, but HEY! They're not indie, and indie is what we do on Mondays.
