Play OverviewPlay Overview

Tectonic (2020) is a timed single-car racing game. It starts out as an ordinary race through an American city, but soon develops into an exciting experience as you drive through the city while it is being wrecked by an earthquake. Buildings fall all around you as you try to avoid debris and other hazards.

This unusual racing game offers three modes which you unlock as you play. You can customise your car different colours and designs. Each level requires two laps of the track. Action Mode is the track with earthquake effects. Bomb Mode is a race against time where you have to hit checkpoints or a bomb explodes. Timed Mode is the same track as Action Mode but without the earthquake, you just need to set a good time.

Each track is a relatively short race, but packed with action, you feel that you are inside a big budget movie.
