4x4 Offroad Racing

I'd like to show our new iPad game 4x4 Offroad Racing which has been submitted today to the App Store and is expected to be launched within the next 2 weeks. The game is priced at 1.99 US$. The product website is located here. Once the game has been approved, this will be the iTunes URL:


Here's our App Store description:

4x4 Offroad Racing offers intense high speed race action with 7 simultaneous cars, jumps and crashes, 25+2 unlockable cars and 20 race tracks organized in 4 cups to master. The game takes place in a large and beautiful industrial park scenery with lots of options for epic jumps.

In 4x4 you race for virtual cash. Spend the earned cash to unlock more tracks and cars. You earn cash by winning the tracks, crashing into other cars, racing best lap times or by doing epic jumps and earn cash for the airtime! The 20 tracks are organized in 4 cups: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Win each cup to be able to unlock the next cup. When you unlocked and won all 4 cups you unlock the 2 bonus cars: A school bus and S.W.A.T. bus!

Beside the 2 bonus cars, the game offers 25 more cars: 10 pickup trucks, 10 offroad buggies and 5 heavy trucks. All cars have different engines, weights, steering and handling behaviors - so if can't master a track, just go and buy a different car with different behavior. Take a light and speedy buggy to be quick or kick other cars out by crashing into them with a heavy truck!

There's 3 different steering methods offered to you:
- accelerometer based steering and virtual pedals for gas and brake/reverse.
- a 4 button control setup with virtual pedals and steering pads.
- PC-game like cursor keys.
Choose whatever steering matches best to you! You can even switch in-game the steering methods by tapping on the menu button in the top.

Oh, and did we mention that the game supports you with 4 awesome hard rock music tracks that will kick your adrenaline level up high? And not only that: 4x4 Offroad Racing has an additional free driving track which - once unlocked - let's you freely explore the whole industrial park. Of course we put in some ueber epic jump ramps so that you can earn extra cash in free driving to buy and unlock additional cars and tracks.

(Please note the Youtube video has been recorded on the Mac just because it was easier to record. The game plays same on the iPad)

Please find below some screenshots directly taken from the iPad:

Yeah, I hope so too! :-)

I gave it 3 steering methods to let the user choose its personal favorite. The virtual cursor keys steering method is the default one as most of the ppl that played the beta and are not car racing addicts instantly were able to race the game.

The other two steering methods are accelerometer and a 4 button pad control. Hope it works for you!
