Famed developer Half Brick Studios has just made its latest game, Battle Racing Stars, available for download for the Android and iOS platforms.
Details of the game as follows via the press release:
In Battle Racing Stars, players will lace-up and race against rivals from all around the world. From out-running UFOs to traveling through interdimensional portals, this is no ordinary racing game. A star-studded cast of familiar faces, paired with countless unique game modes, make for an addictive, action-packed burst of excitement. Halfbrick is back doing what it does best!
Battle Racing Stars is yet another project to come out of Halfbrick’s internal game-jam initiative, Halfbrick Fridays. In fact, it was the same game-jam which brought Halfbrick its previous release, Magic Brick Wars. Voted internally as ‘Best Game’, it was clear Battle Racing Stars showed promise. The competitive, fast-paced, pick-up and play nature of the game made for an addictive recipe which demanded further exploration.
The infamous ‘Pijama Team’ who brought you Dan The Man, is the group responsible for Battle Racing Stars. This is evident when playing the game. The patented humour which helped make Dan The Man the success it has been, is intrinsic throughout Battle Racing Stars. It is the same Halfbrick humour which birthed the legend of Barry Steakfries, who you can play as in this game!
With a cast full of Halfbrick all-stars; Barry Steakfries, Sensei, Flash and more, Battle Racing Stars is a game which Halfbrick fans are bound to love. Battle Racing Stars is now available worldwide on the Apple Store and Google Play.
Imagine Jetpack Joyride, but instead of playing it solo, you will be racing against other players, which does sound like fun.
Being a free to play title, it would be interesting to see how game balancing is factored in by Half Brick Studios, and there’s only one way to find out.
