We got a first look at Split/Second, the new arcade racer from Disney last month and were impressed with what we saw. Well good news, it’s now available.

The game is set in a TV set that is getting ready to blow up. Can you guess where the arcade part comes in? You get powered up and can set off explosions to divert and delay the other racers. There are multiple tracks, multiple race types, and different track settings in the game.

In my quick look at the game tonight, it looks really good. Amazingly smooth framerate (on an iPhone 3GS).

One of the coolest features wasn’t available to test when we last saw this game, the online multiplayer. One of the new games that allows you to play, in real time, with other people over the Internet. It will also do multiplayer over Bluetooth and local Wifi. (Hmm… wonder what our Weekend Fun game will be this weekend?)

The app is for iPhone and iPod Touch, though it reportedly works on the iPad, I couldn’t get it to work and it’s not currently optimized for the iPad. We did hear last month that an iPad version should be available within a few weeks after the iPhone version.

Split/Second is available in the app store now for $6.99.

Giant Moto Review

Giant Moto Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Giant Moto is a fun, faithful homage to the video game classic Excitebike, providing players with an improved, updated pick-up-and-play arcade racer that stays true to the original. While it does have its share of flaws, it's worth its price, especially if you are/were a fan of the original Excitebike.
