In Mario Kart 64, on the space superhighway Rainbow Road, there was a very specific part of the track where if you leapt off into the abyss you could land safely on a much later part of the track.
This was, of course, an unintended shortcut. An unofficial loophole. A cheat.
But in Impossible Road, an abstract ball-rolling game from Pixels on Toast, it's not just a viable strategy: it's practically the only chance you're going to have of getting a score in double digits.
The idea of the game is to roll down an infinitely long road, which winds and curls and banks and spirals, and dips, and bumps. It's a maddeningly difficult track: think Super Monkey Ball, if masochistic Super Hexagon creator Terry Cavanagh were Sega's level designer.
Impossible Road is habit-forming gaming at its finest. Visually arresting, refreshingly unique, and perfect for leaderboard battles
