Reporting from GCDC 2008, PocketGamer.co.uk was demoed a new iPhone racing game called Real Racing. Australian developer Firemint shows off what appears to be a very promising accelerometer-based iPhone game:

PocketGamer.co.uk had a hands on and described the graphics as "spiffing" and claims the tilt controls "knock spots off other iPhone racing games so far." Head-to-head multiplayer over network or Wi-Fi is also available. What most impressed them, however, was the community features which allow you to upload you best times to a central website. This lap data can then be converted into replay videos that are send to YouTube.

A sample of this replay "footage" is also provided:

The company expects Real Racing to be out before Christmas of this year.

    WOW

    Head-to-head multiplayer over network or Wi-Fi is also available.

    That game looks as good as a PSP game

    This is incredible! This confirms the iPhone as a real game platform. Watch your back, PSP.

    looks like Gran Turismo 1 for the iphone, consider me interested.

    I like the badly rehearsed gameplay demo, notice how the wheel in the car makes some sharp turns and the guy holding the phone does nothing.

    How was the acceleration and braking controlled? By tilt or onscreen controls?

    I agree, that it does look as good as Need For Speed on a PSP. That's really terrific.

    Jeg kan godt lide hårdt indstuderet gameplay demo, læg mærke til hvordan hjulet i bilen gør nogle skarpe sving og den fyr at holde telefonen gør ingenting.
