March 11th, 2010– Today Halfbrick is proud to announce the release of its fourth PlayStation mini! Take to the sky-high tracks with speed and precision in Rocket Racing, which challenges your reflexes and daring across 24 levels in Grand Prix, Challenge and Quick Race events. Drive like a true prodigy by mastering advanced drifting and wall-boosting techniques to get an edge over your opponents and achieve record times. Rocket Racing is intense action from the green light to the finish line!
Rocket Racing puts players in the sub-stratosphere on tracks suspended above the clouds and futuristic cities. Challenge mode features six tiers of unique racing and skill-based challenges, often featuring the signature“grinding” technique which is critical to achieving elite racing success! By adjusting the orientation of the racer against the walls, players can use rocket power to boost off at high speed as well as scoring points for longer and smoother grinds.
Grand Prix pits players against opponents in a series of races over four difficulty levels. Completionists can collect gold trophies as they race, and along with the Challenge mode, take steps to unlocking and winning every event in the game for the elusive 100% Award!
Finally, Party Mode puts up to four players in the hotseat as they take turns setting and breaking each other’s score on a huge variety of tracks. Party Mode even lets players customize how to win - be it with the fastest time, highest total or single grind score!
Rocket Racing is released on March 11th worldwide, playable on PS3 and PSP minis, available on the PlayStation Store for US$4.99.
