Holdenlink.com started a new project, combining the persuasive power of video games and especially race simulators with an educational message – “driving and texting is dangerous”. In order to prove this, the creator of the SMS Racing game revolutionized the concept of race simulators – the player now has to simulate not only driving, but also replying to text messages while doing it!
You will soon find out that typing a simple three to four letter text message is the hardest thing to do while driving – as soon as you take your eyes off the road and start typing, your car will crash. Nevertheless, in Holdenlink's SMS Racing you will be required to continuously type messages while racing to the finish line – which could become very annoying in time.
The player is prompted from time to time to reply to a text message in no less than 10 seconds – otherwise, it will be game over for him. So what the player needs to do is find the perfect time for SMS replying, while also aiming for the quickest time to finish the lap.
SMS Racing is a fun game that raises awareness and educates drivers, and it can be played for free as a browser based game, or downloaded to your computer.
