One question I’ve been asking myself recently is why go forwards when I could drift lazily sideways, smashing through boxes, around poles and over ramps like some sort of wacky human wrecking ball? Absolute Drift [official site] arrives in the nick of time to play out this fantasy before I cause one too many pileups on the streets of Glasgow. It’s a top-down minimalist driving game with a handling model that, to put it mildly, encourages drifting. Every minor turn has the capacity to become a full-blown mile-long powerslide or a quick 720 spin into an unceremonious stop at the nearest wall. Trailer and some quick thoughts after a little play time below.
