Rally Legends – Top-Down Racing Action

Rally Legends is a 2D, top-down racing game that builds on the popular Drift Legends game for iOS (#1 racing game in New Zealand and #4 in Japan).

It features 102 races set over 17 tracks, playable in both directions.

“We listened to the feedback from Drift Legends and improved gameplay dramatically. The cars are slightly easier to drive, but still offer enough challenges to keep players coming back to achieve the gold scores” said Darren Cottingham, Executive Producer.

The game features three race modes: Rally, Drift and Arcade.

In rally mode it’s a flat-out time attack – the quickest time wins. You can cut corners where possible as your trusty Welsh navigator instructs you which way to turn.

In Drift mode it’s all about getting it sideways and keeping it sideways. While you’re drifting, you’re scoring points. Link the corners to increase the drift multiplier for the huge scores.

Arcade mode is the most tricky, but the most addictive. Follow the line of coins on the race line. Each coin increases your score and collecting a lot of them in a row adds a multiplier factor, too.

To help improve your driving there’s a ghost car. The ghost car is particularly useful in Rally mode where you can see exactly where you lose and gain time.

Finally, there’s the challenge mode where, using Openfeint, you can send a challenge to a friend to beat your time. Global leaderboards for each track are available, too.

Rally Legends is aimed at those who want a challenging game with a lot of replayability. While it’s relatively easy to achieve a bronze score on a track, winning gold is a whole different story.
