Games are a great way to take some time off, or just relax during weekends or vacations on Windows 8 tablets or smartphones. Not all people are hardcore gamers looking for complex games that need a lot of playing time to reach certain parts of the content.

Out of the driving games, Hill Climb Racing really steps in front when it comes to gameplay and diversity.
One of the most addictive and entertaining physics based driving game ever made! And it’s free! Meet Newton Bill, the young aspiring uphill racer. He is about to embark on a journey that takes him to where no ride has ever been before. With little respect to the laws of physics, Newton Bill will not rest until he has conquered the highest hills up on the moon! Face the challenges of unique hill climbing environments with many different cars. Gain bonuses from daring tricks and collect coins to upgrade your car and reach even higher distances. Watch out though – Bill’s stout neck is not what it used to be when he was a kid! And his good ol’ gasoline crematorium will easily run out of fuel.
