App Description

4x4 Offroad Racing offers intense high speed race action with 7 simultaneous cars, jumps and crashes, 25+2 unlockable cars and 20 race tracks organized in 4 cups to master. The game takes place in a large and beautiful industrial park scenery with lots of options for epic jumps.

In 4x4 you race for virtual cash. Spend the earned cash to unlock more tracks and cars. You earn cash by winning the tracks, crashing into other cars, racing best lap times or by doing epic jumps and earn cash for the airtime! The 20 tracks are organized in 4 cups: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Win each cup to be able to unlock the next cup. When you unlocked and won all 4 cups you unlock the 2 bonus cars: A school bus and S.W.A.T. bus!

Beside the 2 bonus cars, the game offers 25 more cars: 10 pickup trucks, 10 offroad buggies and 5 heavy trucks. All cars have different engines, weights, steering and handling behaviors - so if can't master a track, just go and buy a different car with a different behavior. Take a light and speedy buggy to be quick or kick other cars out by crashing into them with a heavy truck!

There's 3 different steering methods offered to you:
- accelerometer based steering and virtual pedals for gas and brake/reverse.
- a 4 button control setup with virtual pedals and steering pads.
- PC-game like cursor keys.
Choose whatever steering matches best to you! You can even switch in-game the steering methods by tapping on the menu button in the top.

Oh, and did we mention that the game supports you with 4 awesome hard rock music tracks that will kick your adrenaline level up high? And not only that: 4x4 Offroad Racing has an additional free driving track which - once unlocked - let's you freely explore the whole industrial park. Of course we put in some ueber epic jump ramps so that you can earn extra cash in free driving to buy and unlock additional cars and tracks.

For an optimum steering experience 4x4 Offroad Racing supports the Fling analog joysticks for the iPad from TenOneDesign.com.

Enjoy 4x4 Offroad Racing, a kick-ass racing game with lots of action!
