The design of the game may looks in a bit pixelate form but still very much intact and convincing. Also, at some level, it is detailed to show the racers the perspective, the distance, depth, and area around them. Further details of the movement of the car and other vehicles and how with the speed it changes. The overall relatively of speed, distance and time in the game is correctly embedded, so that makes a good racing game to enjoy. You can also see the trees, monuments or structures around, the billboards, green mountains and more. Also, things are not much repetitive in the design as well.
The gameplay of Electric Car Race is as same as any general car racing games where you are supposed to leave behind all these competitor cars in the race. What you have to understand is, it is a long race with multiple laps, all you need to do is maintain your speed and make sure you do not get obstructed by any vehicle, billboard, tree or monument building around. You need to surpass these cars against you once you maintain the speed high and able to reach to them. You can see the time going on above along with the last lap you have crossed and what is the fastest lap covered by other racers in the game. On the top right corner, you can also see the speed of the car. Use ARROW keys such as UP for running the car with full speed and RIGHT key and LEFT key to move the car right and left respectively.
Use ARROW keys to navigate the car through the traffic of the road as RIGHT key to steer the car right and LEFT to steer the car left. UP arrow will be for running the car forward. You have to use it like UP ARROW + LEFT/ RIGHT ARROW in case of steering on either side. Also, you can change the field of view, camera angle, fog effect and lot more things in the setting of the game, if that helps.
Tips to Play
a) The first rule of the game is to get hold of the keys and understand how to get the maximum speed. Once you get comfortable with the steering and know how much going left will actually make the vehicle turn left and same for right, you can go forward.
b) Avoid obstruction from large vehicles as more as you can. Try to be far from such vehicles as earliest as possible. You have to vigilante about the upcoming visible vehicles on the road. Try to have some space around your car always to continue your speed at the maximum. This will only avoid the rush and hit situations which slow down your speed to get to the lap fastest. It also lessens the chance of hitting those vehicles and get stopped for some seconds.
c) Even if you cannot maintain the space, just be quick to go left and right while these big trucks or car coming near. It is mostly a matter of practice and stimulation.
d) Try to overtake which will always make you avoid any kind of collision with cars or trucks and even other stuff around. Also helps to maintain the speed to reach the next lap fastest and easiest.
