Red Out Racer
Futuristic hover-pod racing comes to your mobile phone in glorious 3D
Running more smoothly and quickly than any mobile phone racing game before it, Red Out Racing is looking like an exciting prospect for a number of reasons. Not only does it emulate the PSP favourite Wipe Out in offering players a chance to zip around futuristic racing tracks in speedy hover pods, it also boasts a rocking techno/electronic sound track.
Presented in real 3D on Java 3D and Mascot Capsule handsets, Red Out Racer invites mobile gamers to take part in a futuristic racing-tournament and compete against the best pod-pilots of the world. Racing on 16 different tracks that are located in 4 locations on a far away planet, players have to improve their flying-skills and learn how to use a huge number of power-ups in order to be the first to cross the finishing line.
The in-game music is being provided by the Maniacs of Noise. “MON have a notorious reputation for composing great sounding and individual tunes”, explains Markus Schuetze, Product Manager at IN-FUSIO. “In combination with its awesome looking 3D-graphics, the five songs that Maniacs of Noise will contribute to Red Out Racer will definitely lift the experience of mobile-gaming to a new level. Although mobile phones are now feature-packed, it is still a challenge to implement great sounding tunes not only in menu-screens but within the actual game-play. With the aid of Maniacs of Noise, IN-FUSIO will provide gamers with exactly this feature: a pumping electronica-soundtrack that is a substantial part of the racing-experience and not just cosmetics.”
The game will be released in the autumn and will feature a selection of different pods, each boasting different capabilities. Some will offer a high top speed at the expense of handling and acceleration, while others will be far more nippy and manoeuvrable. In fact, it promises to offer something for everyone; speed-freaks will enjoy disappearing over the horizon while the less rapid among us will relish bringing them down to size with a well-timed power-up.
