Aspyr Media to Bring Touch Mechanic for Nintendo DS to North America
Aspiring grease monkeys, put down the wrench and pick up a stylus. Aspyr Media has partnered with KANDO to publish Touch Mechanic™ for Nintendo DS™ in North America. Due in stores Q1 2009, Touch Mechanic™ tasks players with learning what it takes to be a surgeon of the automobile. Gamers learn to change rims, repair damaged bumpers, replace mufflers and brakes, add aftermarket enhancements and perform paint and decal work on vehicles of all shapes and sizes while working their way to the top of the profession.
Touch Mechanic™ features an intuitive interface for performing repairs and upgrades such as installing screws, changing wheels, welding, sawing and painting. Through manipulating the stylus, players will become a master of all the tools and tricks of the trade.
Beginning as a young mechanic with an intriguing past, players find themselves under the wing of Captain Bob of Captain Bob’s Auto Repair. Captain Bob mentors through several early repair jobs and even gives the mechanic his own car to upgrade and customize. The player earns money through repair work to upgrade his car and enters the new ride in custom car shows. With impressive showings in the competition, gamers gain the attention of bigger and better shops and eventually obtain a dream job with the top racing team on the circuit.
Adding to the realistic gameplay, throughout the 75 levels of Touch Mechanic™ players will enjoy fully rendered 3D automobiles.
Touch Mechanic™ will be available Q1 2009 for the SRP of $29.99.
