Ready, steady go, the pigs are racing

HandyGames™ announces the release of Townsmen Racing, a most unusual racing game

Giebelstadt (Germany), 18.04.2006 - End of April the leading independent developer, HandyGames, will release with Townsmen Racing the perhaps most unusual racing game of this year.

Poopsy, the famous pig of the Townsmen series, is back and will start, together with his crazy friends, at the challenging Golden Cup race. This racing game takes the player through dark forests, icy mountains and hot deserts. Extras on the track such as carrots give the pig more power; mugs use the pigs to wallow.

The player can choose between six unique pigs and give free rein in two game modes. Crazy tunings which can be unlocked during the game and the funny comic graphics provide a lot of fun. The easy controls and a tutorial will help the player at the beginning.

Townsmen Racing will be released April 25th and will be available for all current mobile phones at all major operators and portals worldwide or directly at www.handy-games.com.
