Dune Buggy – Ride the dune buggy through sand dunes, snow mountains and rocky roads. Perform fancy tricks and experience hours of fun with this off-road dune buggy driving game. Using the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard, move forward with the Up Arrow, and move backward using the Down Arrow. To keep your balance, lean the buggy by using the Left and Right Arrow keys accordingly. They will help you land on your wheels. You can use acceleration (forward and backwards) to balance against rollover on steep hills or when descending. Click Spacebar to jump, which also helps to bypass the abyss or scrap hollows covered with glass. If your buggy crashes (you land on top), you have to start the level again. However, if you pass the checkpoint, you start from there instead of the very beginning.
Collect yellow stars and repair tools to earn more points, but try to avoid the skulls. You receive bonus points for flips performed in the air, and also for high speeds reached. There are bonuses such as slow motion (lets you see the stunt, and control it easier) for a few seconds. Some power-ups enlarge your buggy, some shrink it, therefore helping you to overcome obstacles much easier. Your buggy can even turn into a single wheel when certain power-ups are collected!
The time remaining, your health status bar, lives used and progress are indicated at the top of the game screen. This off-roading game is full of surprises, and requires you to pay close attention to little details. There is a small “window” near the top right corner that indicates the terrain ahead. This is there to help you plan your immediate actions, be prepared for a jump, or to slow down. Safe driving!
