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
