Beach Buggy Racing is a game where you have to race on cute karts through different landscapes. While you're on your way, hit obstacles, smash your opponents and collect super abilities. You can download Beach Buggy Racing for Android, PlayStation 4, Windows, iOS, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Fire OS.
The game doesn’t look like it released in 2017. By the first look, it seems like it’s from the ‘00s. The details are edgy and not colorful enough. The objects and sceneries here are exaggerated, but they’re pretty various at the same time. You can see here an ocean beach or a sunset with Saturn on the horizon. The water splashes on the screen look good and add an extra dimension to the game.
It's not only a racing game, but it's also a battle race game where you have to fight other drivers on 15 different tracks. Also, you can smash other objects on your way like vases or fruit karts. There are a lot of boosters you can collect while on the road like giant wheels or an oil splash.
There are several few modes available, e.g., Quick Race, Championship, and Daily Challenge. You can upgrade your car, so you'd go faster and don't slow down when you crash. You can choose a different driver, but they'll be unlocked after some time playing this game. Also, there is a lot of upgrades for your car in the career mode including the change of its color and design. You'll need money to do that which you get from winning the championships. They're not easy to win especially due to the unfair AI at times, some cars can obviously get faster than you to the finish line. AI drivers can also hit you and put something to slow you down on your way.
Here in this Beach Buggy Racing review, we'll focus on the controls for Nintendo Switch. It's pretty easy to drive because you need to use the buttons on each side of the controller which is intuitive. And there's no complication if you need to activate a superpower, it'll take a second, and it won't mess up the driving. The game on Switch works better than on your typical tablet where you have to move with turning your tablet on the sides. The screen on Switch can be split for up to 4 players.
Replay Value: 3
The game is pretty 'replayable’ because it's just a race, it never gets old. But the 15 tracks don't add enough variety to the game so you'll probably go to another new race game in the market. But if you’re not too picky, this game might be for you, and it’s perfect for single player.
The Bottom Line
You might really want to download Beach Buggy Racing if you're a fan of cartoon-ish games and you like races. It has nice cars, nice scenes, nice superpowers, and the controls are intuitive. The gameplay is pretty easy, but it's still full of action and excitement at the same time. The races aren’t long enough and very dynamic, so you won't get bored with them.
There are similar games of this genre that are better but this one isn't bad, it's just not amazing enough so you'd choose it.

A lot of boosters to make the game more fun and challenging;
