Hill Climb Racing

Hill Climb Racing is a 2012 2D physics-based racing video game released by the Finnish studio Fingersoft for Android, iOS, Microsoft Windows, and Windows Phone. It was originally created by Toni Fingerroos, Fingersoft’s founder, and is the company’s best-known product. The player controls a driver across hilly terrains, collecting coins along the way and spending them on vehicular upgrades while being watchful of the driver’s head as well as the vehicle’s fuel supply.

From the Creators of the original Hill Climb Racing comes Hill Climb Racing 2! It’s Bigger, It’s Better And It’s Much Much Funner!?

Hill Climb Racing 2 is an online multiplayer racing game with dozens of tracks, vehicles and character customization at your fingertips.

Feature List:

● Unlock 20+ Vehicles – from Cars to Trucks, Bikes and the crazy rotator!
The game received generally somewhat favorable reviews. Critics tended to describe the graphics as being rudimentary at best or ugly at worst and sometimes panned the gameplay as unimpressive, but the former was overlooked when they lauded the physics. Further praise went to the simplistic two-button controls and the freemium monetization model for its passive approach. Its success led to the creation of a sequel, Hill Climb Racing 2 in 2016, and in 2018, the Hill Climb Racing franchise became the second Finnish mobile game franchise after Rovio’s Angry Birds to amass one billion downloads.

Drive your way through the trophy road and compete in exciting cups with the vehicle of your choice. Work your way uphill with over 20+ different vehicles to unlock, pick the one that climbs you to the pole position!

The object of Hill Climb Racing is to drive as far through progressively difficult racing stages as possible while collecting coins,taking advantage of the nonrealistic physics and using only two simple controls: the Gas and Brake pedals. While in midair, pressing these pedals will instead cause the vehicle to rotate, allowing the player to control the angle with which they land. Fuel is replenished by picking up gas canisters or batteries along the way. The player can perform stunts such as driving the vehicle into the air for a prolonged time or flipping it over to earn more coins, which after the race may be spent on upgrades or to unlock new stages and vehicles (including monster trucks, dirt bikes, tanks, and Santa’s sleigh). Conditions ending the game are depleting the vehicle’s fuel or hitting the driving avatar’s head.

Hill Climb Racing was developed by Toni Fingerroos, a self-taught Finnish programmer who was 29 years old at the time of the game’s release. Prior to the game, he started writing software at the age of ten. He was intrigued by car racing, and wrote Ralli 94 and shared it with his friends. At that time, when he thought that games were developed by firms and not by people, he named his own hobbyist firm Fingersoft.

A decade after his first game, Fingerroos revived the Fingersoft trade name as a professional studio that programmed games for Nokia mobile phones. Fingerroos described he “failed at that quite miserably.” He since pursued other occupations, all with unfavorable outcomes. One of them was working with Pixolane, a game studio, and spending his money on developing a PlayStation 3 game called Rust Buckaneers that was ultimately cancelled as the studio wasted its seed money, which caused him to accumulate debt. Another was repairing and selling sports cars imported from Japan and the United Kingdom, which also drained his personal savings. Fingerroos returned to and revived again Fingersoft in late 2011, where as the company’s sole worker, he designed a photography application every few days to see whether some of them would turn out to be successful. One of these apps was Cartoon Camera, released in February 2012 and having quickly amassed over ten million downloads. The app’s profitability strengthened Fingerroos’ confidence, helped him pay off debts, and secured the creation of his next project, Hill Climb Racing.

Since its inception, Hill Climb Racing has seen updates that add new content. For example, the garage was introduced in a December 2016 update, where players can purchase cars and tune their parts. Gems were also introduced as a currency of the game.

Chinese version

Fingersoft had plans to localize Hill Climb Racing in China. They had already released the original game in that region in July 2014, in collaboration with MyGamez, a Finnish-Chinese game publisher specializing in marketing non-native mobile games to China. Paalanen saw an opportunity to appeal to the Chinese audience by altering the game’s theme to match their culture while keeping the gameplay unchanged. Hill Climb Racing: China Edition was published by MyGamez in February 2015, coinciding with Chinese New Year.

Hill Climb Racings critical reception was somewhat positive, with praise often going to the game’s physics. Criticism was normally focused on the visuals, but that was often overlooked when the physics was tested. Modojos John Bedford respectively dismissed the graphics and soundtrack as rudimentary and repetitive, but found a great deal of satisfaction in mastering the controls and called the game “furiously addictive.” SFGates Peter Hartlaub praised the ability to upgrade vehicles, as he found it to dramatically improve the player’s experience and demonstrate the game’s “subtle” physics. Even though he found Ski Safari, a similar racing game, to have a more sophisticated gameplay and better graphics and be more cartoonishly “fun,” he also found Hill Climb Racing more engaging and concluded that the game is “a good example of the importance of mechanics over visuals in [the mobile gaming] market.”



Very good game, fun for every age. Game is addictive and very very fun. But I have just ONE problem, when I am driving very fast with the buggy the car suddenly stops and I lose because of that. So pls fix that and I will be happy 😊 ty

This game is great. It runs well, graphics are great, a lot to do, and other things. I like the variety of stuff you can do, you can ride through tracks to see how far you get or race to get new stages, cars, money, and other things. This game does have some very minor flaws though, if you have no internet half the stuff you can do is not available. Another thing is the trying to get you to watch ads to get things, I think you should just have to do what you need to do to get that certain thing

Fun game. Good time waster . Plenty of different options and diverse playability. Overall gotten better since I started and continues to improve. If needing to get a hold of support they do seem to respond or at least address the matter. Keep improving

Want to give 5 starts but I am suffering issue from almost 1 week. The thing is about Premium Pass of month August. I want to buy pass but whenever I go to shop the price of all items is -.– even of vip and other I even can’t see start offers I report to support but they where not able to solve the issue. Like this I miss pass of aug and still the price is -.– How can i buy it?😑 And sometime there are so many glitches. The most irritating glitch is the scooter one. Pls fix this both bugs.

I would give 4 star to this game because – 1.- vehicle needs too much money , so reduce cost of upgrading vehicle 2.- after every while playing ads are coming it is just irritating 3.- vehicles parts are not unlocking fastly 4.- there shouldn’t be time in cup in legendary session of 1 month it should be intimate 5.- and unlocking parts daily deal cost is too high first we make coolection of 500 diamonds in 6 months and unlocking parts so it is the issue So I think you should pay attention

Flipper boy. What i dont like with the diesel and I know the game isant realistic but when you hit a bump the truck flies up In the air and has a 5 second hang time & when every one passes you up you finally touch down again and start from a stop you might be able to still win if you spent $50 or$100 and get the parts but you might just get the same parts you have or another useless one. Its a fun game to much money for me tho. Of corse its free with in app purchases. Upgrade to flip.
