Environment Alpine

Jump to: navigation, search

Alpine is the second environment for TrackMania Original. It wasn't in the demo, so you have to buy the game to experience it.

The Snow environment makes no bones about combining blocks completely covered with snow or even ice with track sections made of "special traction” wood.

Car

A slow vehicle by nature, all the pickup needs to provide extreme sensations is to pick up speed by going downhill (or get a Turbo Boost). This vehicle’s large tires provide very arcade-like traction that allows the vehicle to take almost any turn at full speed — provided it holds the proper line. You will need to conserve your speed as much as possible if you want to finish the course without having to get out and push.

Speed : fast
Acceleration : Slow
Handling : average
Reversal : rather rare

Driving

Changes in traction allow the vehicles to take 90° turns at full speed — right before a bobsled-type turn that will test the nerves of even the best drivers.

Building

There are no crash barriers or guard rails, except on road blocks placed on the ground. You can build courses that start from dizzying heights, string together dangerous series of tight turns that require the speeding cars to jump from level to level in order to finish with respectable times.

Gameplay

Alpine proposes to the driver a cross-country vehicle, pick-up style, with very low accelerations but a rather high maximum speed, moving in a snowy mountain landscape in Asia. Thanks to its large mass, the vehicle is inclined to take much speed in descents whereas it often labours to climb up upward slopes without boosts' help. The vehicle has a fast steering making the gameplay rather easy to master, replying accurately to player's orders, which place the environment in favourites of numerous trackmaniacs.
