I am rubbish at racing games. Pole position in awfulness. I can just about manage a middling existence on Mario Kart, but that’s about it.

So quite how I came to not only be addicted to a proper sci-fi themed racing game, but actually become rather good at it, is still a mystery to me, but I did.

The game? CoreBreach.


CoreBreach is a modern entry to the anti-gravity racing game genre, one first popularised by 1995 Playstation classicWipE Out‘.

It’s to this title in particular that Corebreach owes a lot to. The game-play, layouts and features are all indebted to it for sure. But CoreBreach is able to do what a lot of “clone” style games can’t, and that’s carve out an identity of its own. From the gorgeous, rotoscope-esque graphics to the thumping 50 minute soundtrack – CoreBreach packs a lot of personality into its $6.99 price tag.


The game does lack an online multi-player feature, but this is a lot of ask of any game in this price range. High-scores are logged online (no account needed) which does add a degree of competitiveness, but for the most part CoreBreach is about your skill vs the computer AI.
