Firemint Raises the Bar for iPhone Racing with ‘Real Racing’

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.
