Table Top Racing For iOS Just Might Make You A Racing Game Fan Again

This one looks super cool.

This one looks super cool.

I’ve got to be honest, I’ve never really gotten into racing games. I do enjoy a bit of Burnout Paradise action now and then, but for the most part, I tend to avoid games that are all about racing. Unless they have karts and cute little mascots, of course. And iOS racing games? They’re ok, but not really my go-to genre.

Today, though, the adrenaline-fueled, high octane trailer for Table Top Racing has me wondering if maybe I should give this one a try.

Playrise Digital announced the release today of it’s first iOS title right on the iTunes App Store, and it just might make you a fan of racing games again, too.

This $2.99 game is universal, so you can play it on your iPhone or iPad. There are eight gorgeous race tracks, each one reinforcing the toy car concept with oversized obstacles and various indoor and outdoor settings. There’s 4-player multiplayer via Game Center, and up to six players can race head to head over WiFi or Bluetooth. Each of the ten toy cars can be painted and customized for your particular racing style, and there are six gameplay modes to keep you entertained, including speed trial, combat, and pure racing modes.

Looks good, right? The devs promise 60 frames per second gameplay, and support for Retina devices. I don’t know how that will play out on lower-end iOS devices, but the iPhone 5 should handle it just fine, as that’s the device they optimized it for.

“We are very excited to release the first title from Playrise Digital today” said Nick Burcombe, Playrise CEO, in the press release. “We are extremely proud of what we have been able to achieve with ‘Table Top Racing’ and to bring the team’s decades of experience on console games to the mobile arena.”

IF you’re into karting-style mini-car racing games, give Table Top Racing a try and let us know what you think in the comments below. I know I’m going to.
