Web-based game site Poki has launched Rabbids Wild Race, an exclusive Raving Rabbids game that mixes platforming with endless runner and Flappy Bird mechanics.
Earlier this year, Poki revealed that it was one of several organizations working to preserve the thousands of great Flash games floating around on the Internet. That's not the company's only mission, though — it's also quite keen on launching brand-new games and a new one has just arrived that can be played completely for free.
What is Rabbids Wild Race on Poki?
Rabbids Wild Race bears some similarities to Flappy Bird, but it also blends in several other genres. Platforming and endless runner elements also factor into the game. Players have to avoid obstacles and enemies, but they can also collect goodies in the game world as they race against dozens of other real-life opponents.
This game is one of three Ubisoft Nano projects, a series of smaller games. The other two games thus far as Trackmania Blitz (based on the Trackmania franchise, natch) and Hungry Shark Arena, a sequel to Hungry Shark. For Poki, however, the addition of Rabbids Wild Race to its platform is viewed as a good sign in a time when Flash's days are quite literally numbered.
"Rabbids Wild Race continues with the tradition of uniting multiple players in one gameplay," read a press release from Poki. "However, there’s a twist. Instead of limiting the player count to 4, kids of all ages (including the [grown-up] kids, wink wink) will be able to play on Poki with up to 31 other players. 32 naughty Rabbids on one screen is a lot to take in and makes this game release extra special."
