Sports fans tired of traditional button-bashing swimming mini-games can look forward to a more accurate experience in Michael Phelps:?Push the Limit.
Olympic medal-winning swimmer Michael Phelps brings the freestyle, butterfly, breaststroke and backstroke to Kinect in this title. There’s an instant Quick Play mode, Career Mode and the option for users to customise their own swimmer.
Consumers will have to crouch when on the starting block and swing their arms forward into the diving pose as soon the starting noise sounds.
“The game is perfect fun for all the family with very little barrier to entry,” says Rebecca Wells, product manager for 505 Games.
“Coupled with the enormous star power of Michael Phelps, Push the Limit is an attractive prospect for Kinect Players.”
A partnership between 505 and Speedo will see the game promoted as part of Speedo’s brand awareness tour of Europe, where people will be able to play it for themselves.
