rally-master-pro-splashscreen-iphoneGerman iPhone gaming site PressHome.de (Translated) managed to score a exclusive gameplay video of Fish Labs' upcoming racing game, Rally Master Pro. Originally a J2ME mobile game, Fish Labs has leveraged the graphical power of the iPhone to add all kinds of crazy lighting, weather effects and every 3D model in the game is said to have 4x the amount of polygons from the original. We posted some screenshots of the game earlier this month when it was originally revealed, but this is the first time anyone has seen the game in motion.

Rally Master Pro is set to be released sometime this fall.

    Wow, that looks so freaking gorgeous. I'm guessing from the frame-rate that that must be being demoed on a 3GS? (I wish the 3GS looked a teeny bit different so I could tell.) :) I like the placement of both pedals on the lower-right of the screen. The movement between accelerator and brake is much more like you would be doing with your foot - seems more intuitive.

    Now I just have to hope for an internal view like they have in Real Racing. The movement of the car can be felt better in an internal view, and its exact direction better judged.

      It is demoed on a 3GS. There will be a special 3GS version in a later update.

      • SalsaMD

        Hmm, that is a little nebulous. Is the current code being written such that it will ultimately automatically or manually be able to be scaled up in detail for the 3GS in a later update, or will there be a dedicated 3GS version. If the latter, then 3GS folks may want to wait.

      For everybody who wasn´t to have an idea what is coming up with Rally Masters Pro, I recommend to download the Java version from http://www.fishlabs.net/en/rally-master-pro . It´s a trial version, where you have to buy the missing content if you want to play the full game, but it´s definatly worth a try.

      The Java version features everything the iPhone game will have (also said in the video).

        I meant wants, not wasn´t. Sorry.

    • http://www.rpg-fanatics.de crishnak

      Sorry for the triple post, but I just checked whether there was cockpit view in the original game. There wasn´t actually cockpit view, put a hood camera. Cockpit wouldn´t work that good on small mobile screen of Java handsets anyway. ;)

    Fish Labs has gone further with their Abyss engine. Good stuff.

    Sadly, this just reminds me of how much Sega has dropped the ball. I mean, honestly...where in the hell is Sega Rally?

  • benjamin

    i had higher hopes for this one.this one looks actually worse than need for speed and nfs is way worse than real racing.one car driving doesn't look fun to me.the menu's and interface looks cool to me but i feel the gameplay isn't there yet.

    • antonioj

      LOL at the guy wanting more cars running on a RALLY game...can one be son dumb?

    • MinervaDreaming

      Sounds to me like you aren't a rally racing fan. Rally racing is basically a time trials competition, one car at a time.

    Well, if it's a true rally-car game, yeah, it's going to be one car only. They might be going for realism here. I have no objection to that. I was a big fan of the Colin McRae Rally games, and driving a rally car is tricky enough without worrying about other cars.

    The arcade sections of the Colin McRae games, where you were competing directly against other cars was good too, but I'm a bit more of a rally purist. Is an insta-buy for me. Over-the-hood cam is good enough for me. I kinda prefer that or bumper-cam to a true in-the-seat view. You can see more. :)

    the gas and break pedal look kinda small to me. But they still have time to correct it.

    The GFX seems nice, but i will hope to a better ingame video and screenshots. Also remember me the V-Rally Game on Nintendo 64.

    I have yet to find any tilt controlled racing games to be of any use. Im old school and cant for the life of me get any real control via this method.

    • spiffyone

      Then you simply don't "get" the accelerometer control methods. Here's a hint: only SLIGHT movements of the wrist are needed. Don't control the games all spaz-like and you'll do better.

    I have been waiting AGES for a proper Rally game for the iPhone and this looks to fit the bill perfectly. I like the options for weather and I like how the controls look as well as the decent graphics. Ideally I would like CMR (the PSP version was great so long as you used the d-pad instead of the analogue stick), but this will do just fine. Why has there been such a dearth of Rally games the past few years? Can't wait!

    Well, the game looks not very appealing to me. I mean, the game is "okay" but a bit boring.
