Reckless Racing Roars onto the App Store.
EA Mobile, a division of Electronic Arts Inc., and the world’s leading mobile games publisher, today announced that Reckless Racing for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is available on the App Store. Reckless Racing brings a creative, fun and original game with robust multiplayer features to consumers looking to experience the thrill of dirt track racing. Reckless Racing is based on the original top-down racer developed by Sweden-based Pixelbite.
“Reckless Racing fans and gamers around the world have been waiting for us to bring this engaging and great looking game to iPad, iPhone and iPod touch,” said Adam Sussman, Vice President of Worldwide Publishing for EA Mobile. “Reckless Racing demonstrates how EA can partner with fantastic independent developers to bring innovate and creative new games to consumers. With these relationships, we continue to push innovation and originality in mobile games focusing on the quality, gripping game experiences consumers expect from EA.”
In addition to the roaring engines and sliding tires that old-school top-down racing is known for, Reckless Racing delivers compelling gameplay and graphics that take advantage of the high-resolution displays and features of iPad, iPod touch and iPhone. Balanced controls let players skid, slip and slide through beautiful tracks leaving nothing but mud-splattered opponents and skid marks behind. Reckless Racing features online multiplayer gameplay, online leaderboards and the ability to download and race against other players’ ghost cars from all over the world.
Six player characters each with individual cars race on tracks that can be driven both forward and in reverse. Two driving models scale the gameplay for beginners and advanced players while three game types keep gameplay exciting. Players can race in a straightforward “Dirt Rally,” run time trials with ghost cars in “Hot Lap” and race against the clock on a custom map in a pick-up-and-deliver “Delivery” game.
Reckless Racing is available today from the App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, or at www.itunes.com/appstore/. Assets and additional press information on Reckless Racing can be found at http://info.ea.com.
