Artificial Life has announced an exclusive deal with Red Bull Air Race to produce 3D mobile games that simulate the increasingly popular air sports competition.

In the Red Bull Air Race World Championship the world’s best pilots compete in a high speed race against the clock, navigating low-level aerial tracks and flying between air-filled pylons known as ‘Air Gates’. The 3D mobile phone game takes the player into the cockpit of a race plane and challenges them to compete in different race tracks around the globe. Just like in the real Red Bull Air Race, skill, speed and precision are the name of the game.

The games developed by Artificial Life will be available for a variety of mobile platforms, with the iPhone as the primary target thanks to its motion sensitivity and accelerometer features which provide ideal control for such games.  Tracks featured in the real-world competition in locations like Abu Dhabi, Budapest, Detroit, London, Porto, Perth, Rotterdam and San Diego will be replicated in the mobile titles.

The games will feature high quality real time 3D graphics modeled on the real planes, tracks, weather conditions, and cities featured in the Championship. The game will have a multiplayer feature so that players can race against the clock and also race against the best times of other players. Players can combine their scores on many different race tracks to see how they stack up against other virtual pilots.

The first Red Bull Air Race mobile game will be released before the next race season in early 2009.  See the press release for more details.

    I think an arcadey feeling flight sim would be right at home with accelerometer controls, provided they are more responsive than they are in a lot of other games.

    Im interested. Since its going to just be a big ad for Red Bull, im sure it will be free.

    This looks like it could be a great game. I really enjoy this type of thing vs. the more serious x-plane simulators. I used to play my kids N64, which had a mario-type game with low flying air races. Using a first person perspective would be a great option.

    Red Bull Air Race "lite" is now available. Some might scoff at paying for a demo version, but I have no complaints. I am, however, anxious for the full version to be released. This version offers more content than 50% of the games available now.
