Desert Child is built upon the promise of solid ideas that don’t quite come together. And sadly, they’re so deeply intertwined that a mistake in one aspect of the game critically injures the other part of the game. Hoverbike racing is a neat central mechanic but it wears thin and is stifled by its lack of difficulty and useless upgrades. Planning how and where to spend your limited funds is a creative, relatable mechanic but suffocates under the repetitive racing and the needless upgrades associated with it.
Desert Child is one of those “love-it-or-hate-it” titles. On one hand, it’s got a great soundtrack and excellent visuals. On the other, its gameplay is dull and repetitive. Be sure you know what you’re getting into with this one.
It's just you and that cool hoverbike taking things one race at a time. Fans of indie games, RPGs, and racing games can find Desert Child available on Nintendo Switch eShop, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live, and Steam today.ess it? No saving the planet, stopping evil, and all that jazz. It's just you and that cool hoverbike taking things one race at a time.
