Chillingo Drives New Top-Down Arcade Driving Game, Horror Racing, to the App Store

United Kingdom– September 24th, 2009– Chillingo, the leading iPhone publisher, today announced that the top-down arcade racing game, Horror Racing, is now available on Apple's App Store. Developed by NewFX Games, this off-road racer is the first game of its kind for iPhone and iPod touch.

In Horror Racing, players choose a driver from the cast of "scary" cartoon-styled characters and their cars. Then it's time for top-down off-road arcade racing, with players picking up ammo and special abilities to inflict damage on their opponents in pursuit of the checkered flag. Missiles, mines, and Quad Damage are just a taste of what lies in store.

Horror Racing's Championship Series mode enables players to choose upgrades for their car and weaponry between races, as participants vie for the Championship Cup. An intense Skirmish Mode enables players to focus on combat rather than racing, while a Quick Race is accessible for players with only a couple of minutes to spare.

"Fans of true arcade racing will be delighted to experienceHorror Racing," said Johnny Coghlan, Head of Publishing for Chillingo. "Off-road racing is always intense and fun. Explosive customizable weapons and stunning special abilities ensure that this game provides gamers with a new level of quality and enjoyment."

"Every race is a new gaming experience full of speed, action and excitement. Gamers will be addicted from the first time they play the game, that is a promise!"
