Line Rider is an amazing line-drawing game that challenges a player to create an entire world for a character named Bosh who wears a beanie and a striped scarf while riding a sled.
The player uses different types of lines combined with real-world physics to create sledding paths. They draw blue lines from left to right to make black ground lines and right to left to create ceilings. They use red lines to accelerate Bosh's movement and green lines to draw non-interactive scenery.
The game editor allows the player to send Bosh sliding along or tumbling down short dotted lines because of a gravity-well component. That said, real-world physics means that the player must practice drawing different types of lines to make the effect work as planned because Bosh can fall hard and die or tumble in a free fall through the air.
The player can alter the settings to develop races with up to six riders. Each rider receives a colored striped scarf (dark blue, light blue, green, purple, red and yellow). Bosh wears the white-and-red scarf unless he's alone. He then wears a multicolored one. Depending on how the player draws the ground, some riders can accidentally fall on a rider and crush him and his sled. He can also become crushed when alone by simply racing inside a closed circle with an uneven surface or hitting a wall.
Line Rider provides plenty of customizable tools and settings, including playback preview, zoom, viewpoint width and height and camera focus. The player can watch a slow-motion playback and add music to it. They can save tracks manually or turn on autosave. They can even export their videos to popular video and social media platforms.
