The developers of Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart have released a new racing title to the App Store called Raging Thunder [App Store]. The $7.99 title claims to be a "coin-op style racing game" and boasts having "the most breathtaking 3D graphics on the iPhone yet."
Features listed by the developer include:
- WiFi multiplayer
- State-of-the art 3D graphics
- Boost, draft and tackling physics
- Customizable controls
There is a lot of competition amongst racers in the App Store. We had felt that Nitro Kart offered the best "kart racing" experience on the iPhone, so we'll be interested to see their take on a more traditional racer. Raging Thunder has existed for some time in Jailbroken form.
Amongst the other racers currently available, we favored Asphalt 4 Elite Racing over GTS World Racing, Pole Position Remix, and Moto Chaser (formerly Moto Racer). Another notable upcoming title is Need For Speed: Undercover.
We'll provide a full review once we have spent some time with this title.
