App description: Gamebrausch presents Bob's Action Racing

Now ported to iOS devices!

Finally the first of many game classics originally created by Bob Fungus for the Fungus 500 in the late 70s and early 80s has found its way to iOS devices. Coming as a universal App Bob's Action Racing is reborn and lets gamers all around the world experience the arcade racer on the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. The game utilizes the same advanced 17 color palette introduced by the Fungus 500 back in 1979. In a time where most machines were limited to 16 colors, this came close to a revolution as it allowed more detailed graphics than ever seen before.

Bob's Action Racing for iOS is a genuine remake and includes all the original's features and more:

ECP (Extended Color Palette) for more detailed visuals
Dynamic difficulty level depending on the player's abilities
A whole set of different obstacles to maneuver around like trees or oil
6 different themes including the famous desert and the loved alien planet
State of the art controls supporting touch input
Also supports Arcade control with external hardware
Twitter support
Allows own music while playing


"Porting some of my old games to the iDevices was one of my many good decisions, I guess I am just a brilliant game designer." - Bob Fungus, Executive Producer

"Getting the game physics to work correctly was a heck of a task. Without Bob we would not have achieved this!" - rou, Lead Programmer

Any iCade compatible game deserves support. Especially if it's free!

Well, let's say there is a slight possibility that it might be that one or two farbrausch members are part of gamebrausch as well
