Tegra K1 Racer Voxel Rush Unleashed

By Patrick Shaw - Wed, Aug 20, 2014

Featuring minimalistic yet vibrant visuals enhanced for NVIDIA Tegra K1-powered devices, Voxel Rush quietly pulled into TegraZone and Google Play late last week.

Now available to download for free, Voxel Rush puts player's reflexes to the test in a first-person racing experience where they must avoid colliding with voxel-shaped objects at a breakneck speed.

Its addictive gameplay could be described as a fast-paced endless runner, or racer if you prefer, set in a 3D environment that creates the sense of soaring through the Death Star's trenches in the memorable climax of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

While Voxel Rush features understated graphics, which the developer likens to the virtual world in Disney's TRON, the game packs high-end effects built to take advantage of machines equipped with NVIDIA's 192-core Tegra K1 processor. Tegra K1 exclusive graphical effects include enhanced bloom and blur, tone mapping and high-dynamic-range lighting among other improvements.

You can even immerse yourself further in Voxel Rush's world by enabling its stereoscopic 3D mode if you own a pair of stereoscopic 3D glasses.

Voxel Rush's controls are also specifically optimized for the NVIDIA SHIELD Portable and SHIELD Tablet, which HyperBees recommends you experience the game on.

"NVIDIA Shield tablet is the gaming tablet to play Voxel Rush: 3D: furiously fast, high-quality design, built to last, compact and handy," said Tom Mleko, CEO of HyperBees. "It is a powerful gaming machine, especially when combined with dedicated cover and wireless controller."

Voxel Rush is now available to download on mobile devices for free with a variety of optional in-game purchases available.
