Free car driving simulator
Dr. Driving is a mobile simulation game from SUD Inc. This free-to-play driving game veers away from classic car games, where speed is the key. It doesn’t have any racing missions like other car simulators, either. Instead, it challenges you to drive well, find parking, and manage traffic.
Like Advance Car Parking Game: Car Driver Simulator, Dr. Driving works as a supplement to actual driving. It provides a realistic experience to players, helping ease through the traffic and reach their destination. Its graphics aren't the best and not really original. Nevertheless, it is an addicting game that makes driving exciting.
Complete driving missions
Dr. Driving helps players learn how to drive through missions. Some include navigating your way out of a multi-level car park or driving through the traffic with a limited amount of time. Other times you will be tasked to get to different destinations with limited fuel. However, all missions place importance on driving carefully, following the traffic regulations, and avoiding crashing. The traffic police are everywhere in the game, ready to write tickets. Moreover, collision will end your game.
Depending on how well you perform during the mission, you will be rewarded with money. You can then use the cash you earn to buy new cars, engine parts, and repair damages incurred while you clear your challenges. As with other car games, your first car will be a junker. However, there will be a wide selection of cars available that you can purchase as you progress.
Dr. Driving is an offline game. You can play multiple missions and win rewards in the game without signing in or using an internet connection. However, it also allows you to challenge other players with its online multiplayer mode. You can even share your stats online to see how you fare compared to others. For this, however, you need to sign in through Facebook and Google+.
As with most mobile driving games, you can control your car by tilting your phone left and right while pressing the on-screen buttons to start and stop. The game's controls are on a makeshift dashboard, making it a little distracting. It also gives you a clear view of the road as if you are driving in real life. As you cover more roads, directions will appear on the screen, which you will need to follow.
However, as mentioned, Dr. Driving is not exactly one of the prettiest games. The cars and the characters are incredibly boxy, giving you an impression that you are playing an SNES game. Also, there is nothing in the way of sound effects. Yes, there is background music playing as you drive. However, there is not much in the way of automotive sounds as with similar titles. Thankfully, the controls and menus are easy to use and responsive.
Not the prettiest but still fun
There are several car simulators for mobile, and there are certainly more polished options for players. However, Dr. Driving can still compete with them. It comes loaded with challenges that you can unlock. It also has enough competition to quench your need for thrill. It may not win over anyone who isn't already a fan of driving games. Nevertheless, if you love getting behind the virtual wheel, this game is for you.
