App description: Speed up and shoot to destroy. Battle Rides is a competitive arcade game for 2 players where the action never stops.

Challenge your friends to a deadly duel on the same device in two different modes! If you want to play alone, check out Practice mode, where you can improve your skills and try to beat your best time. Choose between 14 vehicles spanning 100 years of automobile design (real and fictitious alike) to find the ones that suit your driving style.

Set in a post-apocalyptical country in 2075, Carmachia puts you behind the wheel of the cars of the High-Octane Gladiators. In the deserts and junkyards scattered across the land, you must use all the weapons and items at your disposal to overcome your opponent.

Re-live the old-school competitive experience and master your reflexes and ability to plan ahead; the more you play, the more you discover all the strategic possibilities!

Unlock as you play
- 14 vehicles
- 6 power-ups
- 5 arenas
- 12 paint job options
- hundreds of arena set-ups

- Handcrafted digital painting-style graphics.
- 3 game modes: Coliseum, Shootout and Practice!
- Multi-layered, highly competitive play for 2 players on the same device.
- Innovative gaming experience somewhere between vehicular combat and figure skating.
- Some cars are faster, some are thinner, some are cooler: pick the ones that make you a better gladiator.

Vexille's comments:
Hey everyone! I'm lead programmer and co-founder of Luderia! We'll be releasing our next game, Spooklands, on August 14th. In the meantime, we've worked on a relaunch of our first game, previously known as Carmachia. It's now called Battle Rides Duel and it features new HD graphics and a new lower price point of 0.99. A steal!

I've never used this appinfo tag before, so hopefully it works alright and more info should show up below. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them!

(Edit: forgot the trailer!)

Watch the trailer!

This looks cool, but does it have some sort of single player mode?

Well, there is a practice mode where you can play by yourself, but this is mainly a multiplayer game, so you need a buddy to get to the meat of the game!
