Ignite is an indie arcade racer released on Steam last October, and developer Nemesys Games has sent word that a port to iOS is currently in progress. I haven't tried Ignite myself just yet, but I've heard good things. It's your typical stylish arcade racer, but has an interesting twist where you can earn points for pulling off fancy driving maneuvers, stunts, and destruction. Once you've earned 1000 points, you can use it immediately to gain an advantage in the race or you can save it until the end and get a time bonus instead.

Ignite features 3 different modes, 35 circuits across 7 locations, and a ton of different configurable cars to burn rubber with. Oh, also, it's absolutely gorgeous. Let's not forget that. There's no clear release date for Ignite on iOS just yet, but the developers stated that the porting project just started in January and that the game is already up and running in a playable state. More videos and screens are said to be coming soon, but it sounds like it shouldn't take too long to get the game on the App Store. We're intrigued, and will definitely be checking out Ignite when it comes to iOS in the (hopefully) near future.

    Looks good but there are so many racing games on the iphone/ipad and nothing really stood out except for Fastlane, GT Racing, Asphalt, and Real Racing.  If graphics are it's biggest seller then I'm sure this will look good on the A5 devices.  Perhaps this might be a iPad 3 demo game?

    Somewhat reminds me of Ridge Racer for some reason, must be the cars and the mechanics. If I recall correctly, drifting is a major part of RR right? Anyways, this game sounds like it's gonna be pretty sweet, and I might just check out that Steam release once I upgrade this shitty pc of mine.

    Just recently heard about this upcoming game...hmm I'm intrigued.

    I'm getting my racing fix with the enjoyable Asphalt 7 but you can never have enough 'good' racers! 🙂

    Are those screenshots from the iOS or PC version? and the article states "more videos and screens soon" where are the first video demos?
