Many of the features from the prior version, Uphill Rush 8, are back in action in this game. This includes a store – revamped and restocked with exciting new items – new characters, new bikes, and new locations where you can try out your flashy new rides.
The graphics are one step above those of the previous game – a big achievement considering how superior the graphics in Uphill Rush 8 are compared to many other games. Check below for some useful tips:
Players can pick between low, medium and high quality play. This is a helpful feature for those of you with slow computers. There is also an option allowing the player to increase or decrease the font size, a feature unusual in online flash player games. You can also choose to dim the lights of the game to enhance the effects, and you can switch the music and sound effects on or off, depending on what you prefer. Game settings can be turned to easy, normal and hard depending on you experience level.
One of the most awesome features of the game is the option of adding this game to your personal website before you start the game. The game will also allow you to do this with other games from the series. This is great, because you can directly compare how the game has evolved – or you can play previous versions in order to get the hang of the new game.
Uphill Rush 9 is very interactive and social media friendly. Not only does it have new features allowing you to watch or post replays of your races on Facebook and Twitter, it also encourages you to hook up with other players for multi-player races. Brush up on your racing skills, because if you feel like a challenge you are sure to have plenty of takers.
Gameplay is pretty simple and straightforward. This game works in the same way as the rest of the series: use the up arrow for acceleration, left arrow to lean back, right arrow to lean forwards and down arrow to reverse. You can also use the space bar for special stunt moves and jumps which, with a little practice, might just put your name in the racing hall of fame.
