Mr Qwak - Retro Racing [universal app] - by veteran Amiga dev..

Retro Racing is our second release on iOS, following on from our puzzle arcade platformer ‘Qwak’.


Youtube link | Pop Up


First choose your car, then skid, slide, spin, hustle and race your way around the track at break neck speed. Collect power-ups along the track for more speed, acceleration, grip, and nitro boosts. Master the perfect racing line, and speed your way to victory in this adrenaline pumping top-down racer for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Made by the same guy (me); who also created the much loved, classic Amiga top-down racers, Nitro (Psygnosis, 1990) and A.T.R. (Team17, 1995).

Should be available on the App Store mid to late Febraury. More information and game-play video can be found here:

(we also have a newsletter if you want to get instant notification of release).

Thanks,

Looking forward to this, Qwak is a retro classic and this just seems to ooze gameplay.

Ah yeah, and just noticing your signature; I've taken delivery of a shiney new iCade. I completely *love* it, just been trying out some of my fave old arcade classics on iMame.
