Oxford, UK, 2nd February 2010– X2 Games, the wholly owned publishing subsidiary of award-winning UK developer Exient Ltd, has today announced its latest title for the iPhone and iPod Touch, X2 Snowboarding. Drawing on its extensive experience in genre defining high quality sports and racing titles, and carrying on the company’s commitment to home-console quality gaming on portable platforms, X2 Snowboarding is set to shine in its own right on the App Store, with the aim of reigning as the definitive snowboarding title for the iPhone platform.
X2 Snowboarding combines high-quality graphics with a finely-balanced control method, allowing riders to compete in exhilarating extreme sports action across various international pistes. The title’s home-console credentials are defined via motion-captured riders and immaculately detailed courses, ensuring almost true-to-life movement and interaction while racing down slopes and pulling tricks on each environment’s arrangement of rails, ramps and jumps.
Producer Simon Berry comments:“With over a decade of experience with handheld games, and the 1.6 million downloads of X2 Football 2009 to back us up, we’re confident about bringing the definitive console-quality snowboarding title to the iPhone with X2 Snowboarding. This means no expense will be spared in developing X2 Snowboarding’s feature set, right down to extensive multiplayer options and licensed properties throughout. Gamers and snowboarding fans will not be disappointed with X2 Snowboarding”
X2 Snowboarding is a fast-paced extreme sports simulation, combining console quality graphics&physics with arcade style game play. Players compete in a series of freestyle, race&trick-race events across an international stage.
X2 Snowboarding boasts the unique, rewind&replay feature. This revolutionary time-warping feature allows gamers to relive sections of the course in real-time. Meaning players can replay, in real-time, areas of the course or tricks they have failed to complete throughout their game. X2 Snowboarding will also provide multiplayer functionality, allowing players to share the snowboarding action with friends via a local WiFi or over a Bluetooth connection.
In-game licenses are due to be announced soon and will add extra realism in the form of real-world snowboards and snowboarder fashions. X2 Snowboarding will also feature an integrated music player with licensed music.
