Mad Tracks Starts Driving Like Crazy All Over the App Store

Posted by Carter Dotson on December 16th, 2011
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Namco has brought Load Inc.'s arcade-style racer Mad Tracks to iOS. Initially released for PC in 2006 and Xbox Live Arcade in 2007, this racer has players controlling miniaturized cars through environments like mini-golf courses, and those Hot Wheels tracks with the crazy loops in them. As well, players can use powerups like turbo boosts, shields, and missiles to help outrace their opponents most effectively. The game also supports live multiplayer for up to 4 players simultaneously, either through local wifi or over the internet. As is all the rage in mobile gaming business models these days, the game is now a free to play title. Players earn "Mad Points" for succeeding in races and for completing challenges. These points can then be spent on unlocking new tracks, cars, and race powerups. Of course, the Mad Points can be purchased with real-world money outright as well. Mad Tracks is now available as a universal app.

FREEday 12/16/11 - Free Games This Week

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on December 16th, 2011

Holy heck this was a great week for the free games. Free! Games! Right? OK, OK, I'll stop crowing and just get to the games. Fine. Geeze.

Breakout Boost - "Atari’s been reviving their classic franchises on iOS; first was the dual-stick shooter reinvention of Asteroids as Asteroids Gunner. While that took a lot of liberties with the Asteroids formula, their latest reinvention, Breakout Boost, is a bit more traditional. The classic Arkanoid-esque gameplay is here: break all the bricks by bouncing a ball off of a paddle at the bottom of the screen."

Mad Tracks - From iTunes: "Zoom through super sized 3D environments jam-packed with special power-ups against up to 3 other players in real-time. Compete in a mad dash to the finish or battle it out in one of the many mini-games and challenges."

Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World - "Previously a PC point and click adventure, Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World follows the tale of Kaptain Brawe, a Space Police officer on a mission to rescue two kidnapped alien scientists. It sounds like serious business but it actually forms the basis of a very entertaining storyline. The humor is reminiscient of Lucasarts and classic Telltale Games titles.

Real Soccer 2012 - From iTunes: "Real Soccer is back for the new season, bringing soccer on mobile to a new era! Join the community of fans as you create and share content with the Custom Kit Editor. "

The Sims: Freeplay - From iTunes: "LIVE FREE! From the creators of The Sims™ 3 series of best-selling iPhone games, comes an ALL-NEW Sims experience that you can play for FREE on iPhone and iPad!"

Marathon 2: Durandal - From iTunes: "Welcome to Marathon 2: Durandal, the second in the epic trilogy of first person shooter games that re-defined the genre. Experience the pulse-pounding action as you once again defend humanity from the alien Pfhor."

Mystery Manor: Hidden Adventure - From iTunes: "Mystery Manor is a mystery-style hidden objects game. In a mystic mansion, inhabited by strange but lovely people, spooky monsters and funny ghosts you’ll have to find hidden objects, unlock new rooms and complete quests. "

Arel Wars - From iTunes: "Deploy your troops, master their tactics and overrun the enemy’s towers in three grand campaigns. Form the strongest army in the land and fight for your place as champion of Drusilla. "
