Handmark Launches First Arcade-Style Racing Game for iPhone

Handmark today announced the release of GTS World Racing for iPhone and iPod touch users. It is immediately available through the Apple App Store.

GTS World Racing offers a unique mobile gaming experience utilizing the iPhone built-in accelerometer feature. Players can accelerate, brake and steer the car by moving and turning the device itself. The game includes 64 track layouts and offers a choice of multiple car types and difficulty levels, as well as 4 exciting play modes - Single Race, Challenge Cup, Grand Tour, and Championship.

"We are excited to continue releasing the finest in mobile content, taking advantage of the unique capabilities of our partners like Apple," said Paul Reddick, Handmark CEO. "We bring the highest quality mobile applications to the market for our partners and end-users, making the mobile experience both fun and productive."

In addition to the unique interface and use of the accelerometer feature, GTS World Racing offers players a choice of music options. Users can select the exhilarating music soundtrack or use the music from their iPod to create their own customized racing soundtrack.

GTS World Racing was jointly developed by Astraware, the Handmark Game Studio, and Pazzazz Games.

"We have a long-standing relationship with Pazzazz Games and are delighted to bring GTS World Racing to the App Store," said Howard Tomlinson, Director of Game Development, Astraware. "I love that I can control the game holding and turning my iPhone just like a steering wheel, which really shows off how well the device's accelerometer works. This is classic arcade racing fun!"

GTS World Racing is available exclusively from Handmark through the App Store for a one-time purchase of $7.99. For more information visit http://www.astraware.com/iphone/gtswr.
