Original post (11/17): I won’t introduce Hill Climb Racing because with over half a billion installs across both major mobile platforms and countless variations on the theme, you undoubtedly know the concept. This time Bill is back in Hill Climb Racing 2, which will arrive on Android on November 28 after a long four-year wait.
Far from a reboot, Hill Climb Racing 2 delivers greatly improved graphics, more customization options for drivers and vehicles and also adds asynchronous online multiplayer mode. There’s over 30 stages in multiplayer mode and an endless single player mode as well.
The game will be free to install but will contain in-app purchases. There’s no word yet on the pricing structure for IAPs, but if you were a fan of the first game you’re probably not going to care.
Simple games like this tend to do extremely well on mobile but it’s not thanks to IAPs. For more on why this is, don’t miss our interview with Noodlecake Studios discussing what made Alto’s Adventure so popular.
What’s your favorite mobile game? Do you prefer pick-up-and-play titles or complex games?
