Classic GP racing


After a lot of hard work I would like to announce the development and soon submission of this game for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

It will be submitted to Apple next Sunday 20th of December.

You can see some screens, news and extra artwork here:

Looks great! I always loved the old-style, pole-position (the video game) type of racer looks!

A quick post that i chuckled a bit at in the Lounge.

I always thought that the retro style was quite cool. Old games look good in our memories but not so much when we look or play them again.
That is why I decided to give it that old school look but also make it play like what you would expect from a modern game

I think you will like the handling. It is quite smooth and intuitive. ( I was extremely disapointed with the iPhone version of "Pole Position" )

The tilting of the iPhone is the smoothest and easiest control method but I have also added direction buttons for those who might want them.

I am sure that, as soon as you try the tilt control, you won't use the buttons.

Looks great. There's something really cool about those old cars. And the niceliy stylised look really suits the theme. A bit like a nice vintage racing poster. Can't wait

New screens with drivers this time


As I have completed the driver integration in the cars I thought I should post some images with them in place. The empty cars look a bit odd.

These screens also show the Time-trial mode. I have changed the numerical displays for a nicer vintage looking clock.


Again, for more screens and news you can visit my blog:

Yes, same car...Those are some of the liveries of that particular car.

The car in the screenshots above is a different one. It also uses different liveries.

I will post some detail screens of that other car tomorrow
