Speed Hiker is a racing game where you have to use gravity to help maintain momentum.
Gameplay in Speed Hiker is simple. You start the race and touching the screen with increase gravity, pulling your avatar towards the ground. With careful planning you can use downward slopes to help you gain more speed and fly farther. If you land incorrectly, you have to regain the speed that you lost.
Speed Hiker's graphics are cartoony, but contain a great variety. Even though the races are repetitive, the challenging gameplay keeps things interesting. It takes a few races to get used to the mechanics, but a little practice will teach you how to maintain momentum.
At the end of each race, you earn coins and crystals that cause be used to power-ups or buying new avatars. A lot of the items in the store are expensive and require a lot of grinding to achieve. It is not the most annoying way to earn coins, but Speed Hiker can get boring.
Speed Hiker is a fun, arcade racing game.
