Drift Legends is a top-down drifting game which sees you start your drifting career in New Zealand and work your way up to drift mastery on the tricky touge (mountain roads) of Japan. On the way you will progress from New Zealand to Australia, the United Kingdom and America. Finally you arrive at the birthplace and spiritual home of drifting.
The cars have different physics. The Akina is a light, medium-speed, neutral-handling car much like the original Toyota AE86. It is the first car you drive. The Takeshi is the next unlockable car. It has a long wheelbase with predictable handling, like a big old Toyota Soarer or Nissan Laurel. The Felix is the fastest and most twitchy of all the cars, reminiscent of a Mazda RX-7, and the Nagama is the final prize with its high top speed and progressive, easily controlled slides like a Nissan Silvia.
Players start with a simple two-corner track with a wide road and forgiving run-off areas. As their skills increase, the range of tracks increases, as does the difficulty, culminating in narrower 9- and 10-corner tracks with multiple switchbacks, tightening radii, and obstacles on the edge of the track.
Drivers only score while their car is sideways, and the aim is to get a 100% drift time with as much of it as possible in the bonus zones.
Over 1.1 million high scores have been submitted to the database with players competing for the kudos of being number 1 on each track.
Drift Legends has four cars and 25 tracks to master, plus nine unlockable bonus wallpapers and 15 original soundtracks for only US$1.99.
