* Exciting graphics showcasing the car crashes
Four years after Race, film-makers Abbas-Mustan have once again ventured into the twisted territory of deceit with the sequel Race 2. As a part of their promotions, a new Race 2 mobile game developed by Gameshastra and Hungama Game Studio is now available on the android as well as iOS platforms. With the film’s characters woven in a chase, this fast-paced car racing game forecasts the edge-of-the-seat nature of the sequel.

For instance, if you follow a car, you get the nitro-boost that helps you accelerate as well as a protective shield which will make it difficult for any car to upturn yours.
What adds to the game play experience is various comments given by RD. For instance, if your car needs repair, you have Anil Kapoor’s voice flash with the comment, “Ranveer, your car is about to fall apart, get to
