Embargo: 21 August 2009. Middlesbrough: Future Racer, The highly anticipated debut iPhone title from independent developer Assyria Game Studio, launches on iTunes today priced at £0.59 / €0.79 / $0.99 for a promotional launch period only.
The incredibly slick title is a high-speed, anti-gravity racer boasting fully 3D environments and a wide range of fiendish tracks set to test your reflexes to the limit. From complicated toxic sewer networks, winding forests littered with hazards and illuminated night-time cityscapes, each of the six tracks are bursting with character. Future Racer strikes the perfect balance between delivering high speed thrills and impressive visuals, without compensating style for speed.
Integrating full tilt control, the game is easy to pick up and play, but difficult to master, with skilled AI players and the ongoing pressure of racing against the clock. Moving away from combat-based pickups, Future Racer focuses purely on speed and skill, with power-ups including speed boosts and subtracting precious seconds from your finishing time.
-Simple accessible controls utilize the iPhone and iPod Touch tilt functionality
-Six wildly different tracks and six racing vehicles with differing strengths and weaknesses
-Compete against fiendish AI players to unlock medals and trophies
-A collection of beneficial pick-ups to utilize throughout each race
-Visually stunning full 3D environments
-Fully licensed soundtrack from Triptik
