Back in early September, we reported that Acclaim’s classic radio-controller car racer, Re-Volt, was coming to iOS, and today it has landed in the App Store. The title is an exact port of the original game released on the PC and Sega Dreamcast back in 1999, only it’s been visually optimized to look great on Retina display devices, and adapted for the touchscreen.

Re-Volt boasts “fast paced, exciting driving, with explosive weapons and unique track designs [that] deliver a larger than life racing experience like no other.

There are 14 tracks for you to enjoy, set in suburban streets and gardens, in museums and cruise ships, on rooftops, and even in a Wild West ghost town.

You’ll be able to choose from a massive selection of 42 different R/C cars, all of which have their own unique attributes: Some are powered by electric, others by gas; some are fast, others are slow; some are heavy, others are light. And thanks to Re-Volt’s advanced physics, each car feels completely different to drive.

In addition to five different game modes — including championship and single race modes, time trials against the clock, a stunt arena, and a practice mode — Re-Volt offers sharp Retina display visuals, and support for the iPhone 5’s larger 4-inch display.

Developers Big Bit have also promised that more game modes and new ways to play will be added in future updates.

Re-Volt is priced at $5.99, and it’s a universal app compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. You can grab it from the App Store now using the source link below.
