Death Rally available now for iPad 2, iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch

By on April 1, 2011

Death Rally brings back so many great memories. And we are pleased to inform you that Remedy, creators of the  Max Payne series and  AlanWake, announced today that this classic top down vehicular combat game from 1996 is now available for the iPad 2, iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch via Apple’s App Store. The studio collaborated closely with both Mountain Sheep and Cornfox & Bros. As a result, Death Rally has been completely revamped for Apple’s technology, both in terms of visuals and gameplay mechanics.

Death Rally drops the player in the heart of death matches, challenging players to battle their way to the top while surviving the onslaught of bullets, missiles, and death-defying stunts.

Players start out with the trusty  Vagabond, a reliable vehicle armed with a pea shooter.  It’s not the fastest, doesn’t have the best handling or armor, yet it’s just enough to survive the initial Death Rally. With each new bracket,  Death Rally introduces more experienced opponents with faster cars and bigger guns looking to destroy anyone and everyone that gets in their way. Surviving and winning each race gives players more money to tune-up, repair, and upgrade their car. They can also upgrade to meaner guns and better cars to out drive and blow away the competition.

Death Rally has been redesigned and upgraded to the point where it feels native to Apple’s systems. Seeing it on iPad 2 is jaw-dropping,” said Oskari ‘Ozz’ Hakkinen from Remedy. “We’ve added bonus drivers – keep an eye out for Duke Nukem, John Gore from Minigore, Barry Wheeler from Alan Wake just to name a few. All of this is in the first release, and there is more coming soon in the free updates following – expect new tracks, new guns, new cars, challenges, multiplayer and even new guests, like the Mighty Eagle from Angry Birds.”
