Hard Rock Racing - Explosive Combat Car Racing (incl. Multiplayer)

More on the Mac App Store and on http://HardRockRacing.tv

Hard Rock Racing is a fast paced and action packed combat car racing game for the Mac (and soon the iPad 2). In Hard Rock Racing itís all about arcade racing with awesome physics, homing missiles, proximity mines, insane explosions and awesome hard rock music. The game takes place in a large virtual city and you race within that city.

The game features 40+ tracks separated in circuit races (round tracks with 5 laps) and sprint races (A to B races, no rules, as fast as possible). Beside that thereís a free driving mode where you can explore the city. Hard Rock Racing has a good mixture of tracks where you need your weapons to win the race by shooting and bombing your opponents from the track but also fantastic high speed tracks where it is mostly down to great driving ability needed to win the track. Select yourself whichtracks you like most!

For nearly every action during a race you get in-game cash rewarded. You get cash for crashing other cars, explosions caused by missiles and mines that affect other cars, for jumping over epic ramps and getting airtime cash, for driving best laps and best race times as well as for winning the top spot ranks in a race. Use that in-game cash to unlock tracks and race modes.

All tracks can be raced in 4 difficulty modes ranging from easy to medium over to hard and finally the insane mode. But donít worry, if you canít win a track in a regular race you can just buy the unlocking of the track to continue to the next race. So this failsafe mode allows every player, from beginner to expert, to master all cups and tracks in all difficulty modes.

But Hard Rock Racing does not feature only a great singleplayer experience, the game has also multiplayer built in. Yes, race with you friends (or foes) online or in a LAN and shoot their asses of with your missiles and bomb them off the track with your proximity mines! The following multiplayer game types are available: Free Driving, Circuit Races and Foxhound.

On the Mac the game runs in any native resolution your Mac offers Ė in windowed and fullscreen mode. Graphics settings can be adjusted and tweaked in detail to let the game run perfectly on your machine.

See you on the race track! :-)

Hey morti. Great game on mac. Loving it more on the ipad. There is one bug with the control setup when you choose the left joystick for steering the right stick acceleratates and shoots mines ect and the left stick will steer left and right only. You really should post this in the ipad section as you will get a ton of traffic vs the mac forum which is no where near as popular. Free is great but im sure you will have a ton more success on the ipad 2
