Rocket Racing is the newest and most fascinating air sport of the 21st Century that can now be experienced as an exhilarating racing game for iPhone and iPod touch. The Rocket Racing League game is based on the real-world Rocket Racing League (RRL) where Top Gun pilots maneuver rocket-powered aircraft through a virtual 3D Raceway-In-The-Sky. In the game, players take control of a fully customizable Rocket Racer aircraft and pilot their way through floating 3D obstacle courses set in visually stunning environments.
"Rocket Racing League is poised to become the world's first truly interactive sporting franchise," said Dr. Peter Diamandis, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Rocket Racing League. "With the release of this app, the experience of flying rocket-powered aircraft in competition comes straight to one's fingertips. We plan to increase the level of interactivity with each new game and platform rendition, ultimately culminating into game play that offers full competitions between the gamer and real-world pilots during live RRL events."
Gamers and app fans can test their piloting and racing skills in single-player career mode or head-to-head against other virtual pilots via Bluetooth or LAN-based Wi-Fi Multi-Player. Featuring four race types (Lap, Drag, Arcade, Ground) and five track locations (Nevada Canyon, California Coast, City, Tropical Island, Space), the Rocket Racing League is accessible for players of all ages and skill levels. Additional locations and tracks will be released in the coming weeks.
