We’re getting excited about an upcoming racing game for iPhone called Cubed Rally Racer. Jared Bailey, creator of DuckNCover for iPhone, has submitted his latest app which, from the look of the trailer below, could be an addictive slice of fun for your iPhone. The app is described as a 3D isometric rally car racing game and Jared says “Think Dirt meets RC Pro-Am meets Canabalt”. If this turns out to be true we can see ourselves getting hooked!

Cubed Rally Racer features randomly generated levels and sees the user play for best times while picking up gas cans scattered across each track. The game has a nice retro 8-bit look with exciting curves and jumps and will also offer OpenFeint connectivity as well as Facebook and Twitter integration.

Cubed Rally Racer has been submitted to the App Store and will cost $1.99 so check out the video below and keep tabs on www.nocanwin.com for news of the game’s launch.

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

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.

FFA1Fast & Furious from Iplay, released last year for the iPhone and iPod Touch, is a great racer. Sharing the same engine as Real Racing, the graphics and gameplay were great. Now there’s a new episode in the Fast & Furious franchise and it has a lot to live up to. If first indications are correct, this next game in the series, Fasy & Furious: Adrenaline does that.

This iteration is an underground street racing game where you need to fight up the ranks in the street racing scene. Included will be 5 different race types and 35 different cars that follow the usual method, progress in the game to unlock new challenges and cars scheme.

What sets this game apart from its predecessor is the ability to play online against other racers. Take a look at the trailer below for a taste of the game.

Fast & Furious: Adrenaline launches on the App Store this Friday, April 16th. Hit the jump for some screen shots.

Touch Racing Nitro is a fun, quality top-down racer sporting a unique, responsive, one-finger touch control scheme. Although fun and somewhat addicting, at $3.99, it’s pricey and lacks features found standard in similar apps.

We got a few juicy screenshots in the mailbag today from Handmark. They show a new futuristic racing game currently under development by Pazzazz (developers of Hellfire and GTS World Racing, both published by Handmark). The as yet untitled game is a fast paced Wipeout like racer with a variety of vehicles, tracks, and weapons. This game is the first of quite a few iPhone original titles Handmark/Astraware are working on. Up until this point they have focused mainly on ports of their portfolio of mobile games.

I was lucky enough to get a little hands on time with the app at GDC and it’s fast and smooth already. The release date is not yet known, but you can take a look at the shots below for a little preview.
