Rally fun on the tablet: Rally Master Pro™ for iPad

- for immediate publication–

Hamburg, Germany, 06 August 2010– Rally Master Pro TM already made players sweat on the iPhone. Thanks to impressive graphics, dynamic lighting, and realistic 4 point driving physics, even the Java version of the game, and later the iPhone TM version, encouraged players to hurl their rally racers to better and better times across the steppe, gravel, or ice. Now the award-winning racing game has been revised for the iPad TM and the Beta version will be introduced by the developer FISHLABS at the gamescom in the Business Centre Hall 4.2, Booth M034.

In keeping with the high resolution of the Apple computer, the Rally Master Pro TM graphics have been elevated to the iPad TM level and offer unparalleled racing pleasure. The sophisticated driving physics, which individually calculates each wheel according to the weather and the corresponding driving characteristics, along with the customisable controls, creates the perfect illusion of a real hard-core rally. Each of the 27 courses in the game has its own personality: tight curves, wet asphalt, and icy turns challenge players’ driving skills. Help is provided by the co-pilot, who gives instructions to avoid totalling the racer. With the unique, interactive replay, the last stage can be studied with numerous vehicle and TV cameras and individual sequences can be fast forwarded and rewound. The 3D damage model provides information about the condition of the car at any time - the vehicle can be repaired for the next test between stages in a variety of mini-games. Course best times and rally records can also be uploaded on-line to compare with friends and players from around the world.

In addition to these features, the iPad TM version now also offers an Arcade mode, which players can activate for every course. In this mode, the vehicle does not take damage, and even less ambitious players can beat the tough time limits. Thanks to the new ghost function in the Time Trial mode, drivers can also train even more intensely and gradually approach their best time before later immortalising their best times on-line in the Simulation mode.
