Back in January we announced that Remedy Entertainment Ltd was planning on releasing its top-down racer title Death Rally for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad sometime in March. Well we can now tell you that the iOS game has hit the Apple App Store, and is available to download now.
Jared Nelson from toucharcade.com has had a chance to spend a bit of time with the newly released Death Rally and has even provided a review of the game, which originally released back in 1996. Jared noted that although the game isn’t perfect, it’s still one of the finest top-down racers on the App Store.
Each vehicle comes equipped with both a standard machine gun, and the player’s choice of a second stronger weapon. However, the weapons and the other vehicles besides the first one are all unlocked by collecting various items that are spread around the track while the player’s racing.
Players can also earn money from every race they enter. They can also earn more money, depending on where they come in the race, how many cars they manage to destroy and a few other performance factors. Player’s winnings then go towards upgrading the 5 vehicles that are available.
Jared noted that although the Death rally game only offers 5 tracks to race on, it does a really good job of maximizing the variety in the 5 tracks. The highlight of the game according to Nelson is the amazing visuals. You can read what else Jared had to say about the game over at toucharcade.com.
