Raging Thunder– Multiplayer 3D racing for iPhone / iPod Touch

STOCKHOLM

2008-09-22

Polarbit, developer of acclaimed AppStore title Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart, announced today the release of their award-winning game Raging Thunder for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Raging Thunder is an arcade style racing game and includes features custom-made for the iPhone, such as real-time multiplayer races, accelerometer and touchscreen control, state-of-the-art 3D graphics and much more.

Raging Thunder is the first title from Polarbit’s portfolio to be ported to the iPhone, but the team is deeply committed to the platform and are already planning for subsequent releases, including ground-breaking powerboat racer Wave Blazer.

Says Anders Nilsson, CTO at Polarbit:

“The iPhone is the benchmark for high-end mobile devices at the moment, so supporting it in our middleware Fuse and in our games goes without saying. One of our key ambitions with Raging Thunder was to include a solid multiplayer feature, something so far under-utilized in iPhone and iPod Touch titles. Being able to race against human opposition makes all the difference between a good racing game and a truly great one!”

Raging Thunder is available globally from the AppStore.
