Free Windows 8 Racing Game App: Beach Buggy Racing

Beach Buggy Racing is a free car racing game for Windows 8 and 8.1. Upon launch of the game, you will be presented with an interface which allows you to learn the basic controls of the game depending on the control set which you select. Then you can simply start racing. The controls of the game are pretty simple to learn, with the right and left arrows allowing you to navigate the buggy and down arrow allowing you to brake. The buggy which you drive accelerates automatically so you don’t need to worry about that. The game also has certain power ups which can be obtained by driving over the question mark symbols on the road, and these can be used to damage other racers in the game.

Beach Buggy Racing is available for free from the Windows App Store.
