Cranks & Goggles is a top down racing game set in the roaring 20s. Players find themselves as one of the worlds first auto-racing superstars and placed behind the wheel of a number of historical race cars. The game’s engine utilizes real physics in order to mimic the unstable (and quite dangerous) nature of the period’s automobiles. Gentleman racers will travel across all of Europe in order to compete in the most gripping of circuits, with prizes that will make them the envy of their fellow racers.Game Modes

Cranks and Goggles reviews and comments

I would like to recommend this game because it is demanding (so interesting and not at all Arcade, a kind of Super Sprint/Badlands/Super off road to the old-fashioned project cars sauce) and very atmospheric with its particular design and its crazy charm, but the mutl iPlayer is what motivated me and the latter is crippled of disconnections.

"The reviewers complaining about car handling are just bad at the game." said another reviewer. He might be right, but it's just not fun losing all the time. I didn't like it. No feeling of accomplishment to get me going although I was pretty motivated since I loved some top down racing game back in the day and felt like playing one. Call me casual (I sure am) but the car*s control is really clunky and you have to keep an eye on the minimap all the time because you can't see far enough to realize the track ahead. Too bad, the presentation and overall atmosphere is awesome.

A jewel, sumptuous menus, music and sound ambiance with small onions, time machine, well-felt and demanding driving. A discovery, and a good one. And at a more than reasonable price. Driver editor with functional whiskers! Only missing the smell of castor oil. Fangio would play it (better than me) you liked gene-rally, absolute drift? So have your engines gentlemens A jewel, sumptuous menus, music and sound atmosphere with small onions, time machine, driving well felt and demanding. A discovery, and a good one.

As An Indie Developer (Dead Age, Grotesque Tactics, Holy Avatar), I also like to play Other Indie games. My Opinion, however, is neutral. Cranks and Goggles would have deserved more Attention. For a Top Down Racer, it's pretty good. The Career mode has a solid Motivational Curve, as you can gradually buy new Cars and tune them here through earned Prize Money. A Special Feature of the Game is the difficult Control. Due to the nostalgic Time, the Cars are not only a bit slower, but also quite sluggish. Curves are not easy to drive and you like to race into a Barrier. The Graphics are Cartoonous. Something "inexpensive" but I still find them quite appealing for an Indie title. The Music has succeeded and underlines the Age. As I said, you should be prepared for the Cars to be difficult to control. Personally, I definitely see that As a big Appeal And that's why I also make a Recommendation to the Game. Price/Performance are good, is actually already offered too inexpensive.
