When Pixelocity Software first released the Disc Drivin’ game onto the Apple App Store last year, it was already compatible with the iPad as well as the iPod Touch and iPhone. However, the developer has now decided to give the online multiplayer racing game its very own iPad optimized HD version.
As Jared Nelson over on the toucharcade.com website recently noted, the gameplay and content – which includes simple swipe controls to propel your disc and unique obstacles such as ramps and barriers – has remained identical to the standard version, but the menu interface has been tweaked significantly.
The artwork has also been scaled appropriately for the larger screen. Another small but welcome addition to the HD version is the ability to toggle the overhead view off and on, instead of having to hold the camera icon down. This of course makes it easier to get a bird’s eye view of a player’s previous turn.
It also gives players a better perspective on the track. As noted over on the itunes.apple.com website, the Disc Drivin’ HD game features full 3D physics, Retina display graphics, push notifications to tell you when it’s your turn, in-game chat and the ability to play up to 20 games online simultaneously.
