Super Woden GP from eastasiasoft and Vijuda is an old-school style isometric racing experience on PlayStation. You’ll start on a journey from the bottom to the top with the limited resources at your disposal as you try to win as many races as possible to get the money needed to purchase better and faster cars so that you can win more races and championships to keep the cycle going.
This is a game inspired by racing games of the 1990s – think, say, Micro Machines – as you race from an isometric perspective, changing vehicles as needed, with over 70 cars from 6 manufacturers from different countries around the world. You will get to race in a Story Mode of sorts as you try to climb up the board, and you can take on short weekend races, go on a free race where you can tailor your experience, spend some extra time in WGP championships, work your way through endurance races, or in a challenging rally setting.
How will you race? You’ll steer the car of your choice – that your budget allows you to purchase – with the left analog stick or the D-Pad as you accelerate with the R2 button and brake with the L2 button. Momentum is key in Super Woden GP, and you need to be aware of how taking a turn a bit too fast with a car that doesn’t have a great handling stat can prove to be trouble. Crash once from a mistake, and you will have a hard time recovering from it, at least during the first handful of races!
As for the trophies, Super Woden GP is from eastasiasoft, so that means you can expect a full trophy list with a Platinum, as well as a Cross-Buy purchase, so with your money, you’ll get both the PS4 and the PS5 versions of the game. And since each one has its own trophy list, if you own a PlayStation 5 console, you can work on adding two new Platinum trophies to your collection! It’s an easy trophy list with 7 Silver trophies and 9 Gold trophies, but it’s one that will need you to invest a handful of hours in the game. You have to buy a car, win a race, and then get 12 stars in total, purchase 15 different cars, and drive for 25, 50, 100, and 250 kilometers in total.
If you’re looking for an old-school racing experience that is not of the sim variety, then Super Woden GP is just what you’ve been looking for. It has four different types of races to take on, as well as a free race option that you can customize to your liking, more than 70 cars to purchase and unlock, and several tracks to drive through – including the challenging rally ones! Super Woden GP is out with an $11.99 asking price, and since it’s a Cross-Buy title, you can get the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost.
