Slingshot Racing - (by Crescent Moon) [Universal]


Quote:
Crescent Moon is publishing its first racing game later this May. It's called Slingshot Racing, and as its name implies, the core action loosely revolves around slinging your cars around tracks. Its twists are in its hooks, literally. Each car is equipped with a grappling hook, so you'll actually be flicking cars' hooks on pieces of the environment as you race. The steampunk-stylized visuals help to explain this weirdness away.

Slingshot is being developed by Snowbolt Interactive, which is a collective of ex-Frontier guys who helped with titles like Lost Winds and Kinectimals. We expect to be impressed with this one considering those chops.

This looks pretty cool, but I don't really like the look of the snowmobiles/sleds. I am being a little nitpicky though, and the though has lots of nitpicker-ness in it.

Favorite games:

League of Evil 2, Rocket Bits, Super Crate Box, Retro Racing, INC, Choco Run, Swordigo.

Lol, I don't think you'll be worrying about the shape and design of your vehicle when you're speeding down the track!

Definitely looks awesome! LostWinds devs behind... Hopefully they won't have to go through updates to bring a solid control method this time around...

Well those of us that worked on LostWinds actually worked on the original Wii version. We're pretty sure you will find the controls in this game as solid as a rock.

Of course I'm biased but I think the controls are extraordinary in this game.

The name kind of suggests that we will sling the cars in an Angry Birds style, is this true and if yes, how do you steer? Tilt? Arrows? Swipe?
