Police beware! Lose the Heat 2 skids onto the internet

Friday 3 rd June, 2011— Hilversum, the Netherlands— More than 700 million cop cars have already been destroyed in Spil Games’ exhilarating free-to-play racing game, Lose the Heat. That figure is about to be shattered as the the global online gaming leader prepares to unleash a blistering-hot sequel to its massively popular hit.

Available now at http://www.agame.com/game/lose-the-heat-2.html, Lose the Heat 2 takes the over-the-top explosive action of the original and raises its temperature even higher. Players with a need for speed can once again take part in a series of high-octane pursuits to fulfil mission objectives by out-gunning the police. Racers are challenged to employ split-secondreaction time as they weave between oncoming traffic in a blur of metal and adrenaline. Players can even unleash devastating booby traps that wipe out any and all cop cars unlucky enough to be caught in the crossfire—making it that much easier to outrun the fuzz. But watch out! The police have supercars, too—with hard-drivin’ tactics that can cause pile-ups, explosions, and a little midtown madness of their own.

Players can perform stomach-churning corkscrews while jumping and use ramps to tilt their car onto two wheels to squeeze through narrow gaps. The addition of speeding trains, 18-wheelers, and motorcycle police raises the stakes even higher—making this one of the most thrilling browser-based, race-and-chase games on the market today.

Since its launch in August 2010, Lose the Heat has established itself as one of the most popular games in its genre, with an average of 6.1 million gameplays per month. In this time, 1.3 billon logs have been used to crush cop cars, 20 million bridges have been destroyed, and 160 million water towers have been demolished—all in an effort to Lose the Heat!

Lose the Heat 2 isn’t just supremely playable– it looks great, too! With dynamic special effects that seem to burst out of the browser, the explosions are more devastating than ever.

Lose the Heat is one of our most popular racing games,” says Oscar Diele, CMO, Spil Games,“and we have gone all-out to ensure that the sequel raises the bar in every department . Lose the Heat 2 is one of the most action-packed games we’ve ever created—we can’t wait to see how our players embrace its explosive elements!”
