For iOS gaming fans, one of the most exciting things about new operating system releases is how the new features will be implemented by upcoming games. A classic example of this is with Mini Motor Racing, set for release this year and with a bunch of iOS5 based features thrown in.
The title has been in development for much of this year with a gameplay trailer released back in March. Clearly a lot of effort is being put into it.
Mini Motor Racing promises a heck load of different options. There will be 20 different tracks plus day and night races to make for a lengthy single player campaign encompassing a series of race-circuit cups. 4 different vehicle types - sports, hatch, big-rig and pick-up - will be available. Multiplayer support for up to 4 players will also be included with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity as well as Game Center and Open Feint support for leaderboard racing. Plus, for those after the flexible touch, a variety of control settings are also possible.
For devices running iOS5, there's the most exciting side of things: iCloud and AirPlay connectivity.
All race data from the game will be stored online through iCloud, meaning users can pick up where they left off regardless of what device they choose to play Mini Motor Racing on. This information includes racing stats, race circuit progress status, unlocks, achievements and best lap times.
The AirPlay functionality means that players will be able to mirror races from the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 to the TV screen for an even more exciting experience.
Mini Motor Racing is already shaping up to be something special with some fantastic looking visuals so hopefully these new iOS5 based features will cement the game's position as an enjoyable Micro Machines style experience.
