Fail Hard Game Shop

As it was my first time playing the game, I had some credit in my account that I could use to purchase a bike. This shop will present itself to you before commencement of each level should you wish to buy or upgrade stuff. I had to buy a bike as it was my first run and I didn’t have a bike to go with. Game credits are earned within game stages by playing the levels and collecting coins within the levels. When you click on the play button at the bottom right in the above screen, you are presented with the gameplay screen itself, which first starts off with showing you a camera overview of the track itself.

The verdict…

Fail Hard is an insanely awesome game for Windows 8 devices that allows you to play as the biker stuntsman and drive through the roller coaster like terrain and tracks. It actually allows you to experience the adrenaline rush in a virtual way, and if you ask me, the game truly deserves a 5 out of 5 rating because of it’s great graphics, smooth gameplay and ad-free nature. Not only this, it doesn’t even bug you to purchase coins with real money, which I found to be a bit surprising, in a good way, of course! Winking smile
