Dynamic slot racing comes to Chrome mobile – Racer

Racer ChromeRemember playing Scalectrix or other slot-racing games? Well, Google showed off a Chrome game at Google I/O which can build a race track across a number of mobile devices and that customises the track depending how many devises are present.

Racer allows players to compete side-by-side on a track built just for them.

Racer uses HTML 5 to work on all devices – this means that it will play nice with any Android or iOS tablets and smartphones that are able install the Chrome browser.

All you have to do is point your mobile Chrome to g.co/racer to set up and play.

Once all the devices are synced, you’ll all have a different colour at the top of you device’s screen, that represents which colour track your car is racing on.

To control Racer, you simply press on your screen to accelerate your car along the colour-coded raceway. Just like Scalectrix, you’ll have to mind those corners as your car is likely to spin off the track if you hit the curve with a leaden foot – or finger.

According to Google, Racer uses the Paper.js Javascript library, the Google Cloud platform and HTML5 to connect all the devices. There is also dynamic music in the game that changes based on player performance.

How much do I want need to play this?

Plenty many.
