Drifting a car is the practice of turning a corner at high speed and allowing the car to go into a controlled slide. It requires a careful combination of speed, handling and control. Once a car begins sliding around a turn, its up to the driver to maneuver the car correctly to avoid spinning out of control.

The series of Drift Mania games by Ratrod Studio Inc. provide an exciting and fun game where players drift sports virtual cars right on their Intel® Atom tablets for Windows* 8.1. Players score points based on four main criteria: speed, line, angle and impact.

Drift Manias games features numerous car control features including two acceleration modes (pedal and throttle bar), steering sensitivity adjustment, variable throttle system and hydraulic handbrake. The games also feature numerous levels, different camera configurations, replay systems and adrenaline-fueled soundtracks.

When developing the Drift Mania series of car games, Ratrod Studio Inc. took advantage of its status as an Intel® Software Partner status in the Intel® Developer Zone, which provides assistance with business planning, product development and optimization, marketing and more. Ratrod Studios developers used Intel tools, code and support to optimize the Drift Mania games for the powerful features of Intel Atom tablets for Windows* 8.1. Plus, the company received additional inspiration and guidance from the Intel Developer Zone communities.

We created an action-packed car game that puts the player behind the wheel of some of the most exciting cars, with realistic driving responses and control, said Pat Toulouse, President at Ratrod Studio Inc.

Drift Mania games takes advantage of the high processing speeds of the Intel® Atom processer, touch capabilities and high resolution screen of new Windows* 8.1 tablets. The games features stunning 3D graphics, multi-touch capabilities, fast-moving gameplay and more.
