Spectra 8 bit racing is produced by a bunch of developers including a sizable number of Hull graduates. I really like it, although I'm not terribly good at it. The idea (fly a hover racer over a series of increasingly complicated tracks which wind their way through space) is arguably not that original, but the implementation is very polished, the sound is amazing (and properly 8 bit) and the circuits are generated programatically, which means that you can race forever if you want to.
I also rather like the idea that you just have to buy it to get the game. No messing around with in-game purchases or suddenly hitting a nasty paywall to go further. You just fork out a nominal sum and then the game is yours on all your Windows 8.1 devices.
Well worth a look. Search the store for "Spectra 8bit racing".
