We love to showcase your games! Whether it’s in our feature spotlight post or our Games Showcase or All-Star’s page, we’re always thrilled to see what you’ve been creating with Buildbox. Our ‘spotlight’ picks are usually indie game releases that feature a cool theme and gameplay concept or have performed quite well on the charts. This week’s spotlight is developer Sonmez Sogut from Ponyom Games’ Pod Race 3D. And it’s a very cool flying shooter in 3D. This game was created using Buildbox 3, and we’re excited to showcase it for today’s game of the week.

So, let’s take a closer look at Ponyom Games’ Pod Race 3D!

Pod Race 3D … Fly, Shoot, & Enjoy

Pod Race 3D takes players on a sci-fi race for points, glory, and a good time. In the game, you get to navigate a space pod ‘Star Wars’ style through an evolving obstacle course. Similar to Ketchapp’s Fit in the Hole you’ll have to act quickly to pass each wall or series of obstacles but instead of trying to fit you must dodge, maneuver, and blast your way to the other side.

This isn’t your average racer or course. You’ll often encounter gravity-defying shape sequences and tricky counterclockwise moving orbs. To survive players must find a way to shoot through or avoid rotating spheres, logs, and bouncing balls firing in every possible direction. It’s a surprisingly challenging game, but also lots of fun to play. You never know what to expect in Pod Race 3D.  

During the race, you can pick up special power-ups for speed boosts but be careful. If you make a wrong move and hit any barrier, it’s game over!

If you love racers and sci-fi themed games, then you’ll enjoy pod racing in this cool 3D game made with Buildbox.

See it in action in the gameplay trailer below:

Pod Race 3D is available for download on iOS & Android!
