Sparkworkz™ upgrades its exciting Line Rider™ based racing game to leverage unique features of Apple’s iPad™ mobile digital device!
Newport Beach, Calif. – April 2, 2010 – Line Rider Racing™ combines the creative drawing and fun physics of Line Rider™ with the multiplayer competitiveness of racing. Originally available on iPhone™ and iPod Touch™ mobile digital devices, Line Rider Racing™ debuts for launch on the iPad™ with an upgraded art style and new game features made possible by the advanced and unique features of the iPad™: higher CPU speed drives a faster display-rate for smoother game action, higher resolution and greater touch-screen real estate allow for more intuitive touch-controls that adapt to your hands, and—along with the unique form features of the iPad™—enable a new head-to-head mode that shares the iPad™ between two players, giving each their own touch-controls and view of the race!
“Line Rider has often been called the Etch a Sketch for the YouTube generation and now the experience really comes to life with the enhanced screen size of the iPad. And with Line Rider Racing we’ve added head to head split screen game play to make it truly unique. We are excited to have one of our biggest franchises at launch of the new iPad” said Brian Fargo, founder and CEO of inXile entertainment.
Line Rider™, the progenitor of Line Rider Racing™, for the iPhone™ and iPod Touch™ has sold over 300,000 units worldwide and has been in the top 25 games on the iTunes App Store™. Line Rider™ for Flash was released in 2006 and has over 48,000 videos posted on YouTube™ which have been viewed over 40 million times! Line Rider™ was also named Most Innovative Game of the Year in 2007 at The Game Developers Conference.
