Smashy Road: Wanted 2 is a single-player police chase car racing game created by the indie game company Bearbit Studios, the same studio also developed "Smashy Road: Arena" and the award-winning game "Smashy Road: Wanted". As a new addition in the series, Smashy Road: Wanted 2 shares some similar features of previous versions, like the basic controls and pixelated graphics, and also added some new intriguing functions. If you always have a passion for playing escape-cop-chase kind of racing game, Smashy Road: Wanted 2 is for you.

The game is now available on both Google Play and App Store platforms. Since the file size is only 121MB, it's pretty quick for me to download the game on my mobile phone. Maybe because Smashy Road: Wanted 2 was just released a few months ago, I experienced some lag problems occasionally during my racing. Developers may need some time to fix the issues and improve gamers' experience.

What's Smashy Road: Wanted 2?

In Smashy Road: Wanted 2, you play as a criminal who's trying to escape from the intense police chase in a series of different worlds. The goal is to survive as long as possible and complete required missions to level up and earn rewards. You start with a common truck and are allowed to spin the machine to unlock a huge collection of characters and customizable vehicles. The game will end once you get caught by the police or wretch your car.

This action-based racing game features procedural generated worlds and tons of vehicles with different abilities and characteristics. There is a whole world for gamers to explore. Since the world is randomly generated, so you have a chance to drive in different environments like deserts, farmlands, modern cities, and more. In order to survive longer from the police chase and complete all the quests, make sure you pick the perfect vehicle before you enter the racing field. There are various vehicles, like the F1 and MonenyMan, and these vehicles can be used in the game for different purposes. The tank destroyer, for example, is the most powerful vehicle that can flip cars over and cause great damage to the chasing cops. You can unlock these vehicles by using real money, in-game currency, and completing main missions.

Unlike the previous Smashy Road versions, Smashy Road: Wanted 2 is kind of like GTA and has a lot of activities to do. In the game, gamers can get out of their cars and hop onto any vehicle, like police cars, yachts, tanks, even helicopters. You can prove your driving skills by not getting arrested during high-speed pursuits. Besides, the main missions are also pretty cool. Gamers can collect money, bonus, and complete required quests to unlock mystery vehicles and characters. 

Controls

The controls are simple, and you can control the car by touching the left or right side of the screen, and use the brake by touching both sides simultaneously. Sounds easy, right? However, it's quite hard for a beginner to master, especially when there is a horde of cop cars following behind, and so many buildings/obstacles you need to avoid along the way.

Awards and in-app purchases
