(May 10, 2010) SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Experience the rush of a high speed police chase and the thrill of taking down fleeing suspects with the COPS: High Speed Pursuit App from Hands-On Mobile, a premier developer and publisher of mobile games. Created from one of the most compelling and unpredictable shows on television, COPS: High Speed Pursuit allows players to take control of the wheel while trying to catch criminals through intense, high-speed car chases and dangerous takedowns.
"After 22 years on the air and being referenced in over 100 other shows and films, COPS is one of the most recognized shows on T.V. We're very excited about the release of COPS: High Speed Pursuit and see it as a great step forward in the COPS legacy," said Morgan Langley, executive producer at Langley Productions.
With 15 levels of adrenaline-spiked pursuits, players attempt to catch suspects, while racing across the open highways of the Florida Everglades, the mountainous passes of the Pacific Northwest, the dusty, winding roads of Route 66, and the traffic-clogged freeways of Los Angeles.
"COPS: High Speed Pursuit lets players feel the exhilaration of a high speed police chase," said Lynn Monica, VP&GM of Mobile Games, Hands-On Mobile. "Fans of the COPS television series will be able to experience all the action and excitement from the show right on their iPhone and iPod touch."
In the game, players tap an on-screen accelerator to race up to their suspects and steer in close with the device's accelerometer to take them down. If players complete the chase and takedown quickly while avoiding damage to civilian vehicles, they will earn cash and promotions to unlock the vehicles that best handle the four unique geographic terrains.
