[prMac.com] Orem, Utah - Zen Frogs LLC today is pleased to announce the release of MicroKart Evolved 1.0, a new captivating game for iPhone and iPod touch. This is an amazing follow up to the hit game Microkart which rose the charts in March of 2009. Microkart Evolved is the next generation in the racing genre. The game allows the players to experience life on the fast lane as they race down the pavement in the city going across bridges and tunnels.
The impressive 3D environment ads the perfect touch so game players can feel like they are really there racing the hummers. Real time physics allowing the hummers to jump and glide through the air is another amazing feature that contributes to the fun factor. Few games really capture the feel of being there and the excitement that live races bring to the audience.
The levels and scenery in this game are captivating. You really feel like you're racing through the city streets. The app is free for the basic trial, but you can easily upgrade to allow you to race the full 14 courses. The game is a joy to play and makes racing fun again.
The app also has a corresponding Facebook app that was recently released. "We want to create a community around this game," Brandon said. "We want to find a viable channel where people can play games on their phone that correspond to the games in their social life. This is an area in the gaming arena that has huge potential that is currently untapped." He went on to mention that this is a test run in this arena which he hopes to explore further in the coming months. One thing that is impressive about the Facebook app is how close it mirrors the original game. The Facebook version actually seems to scale the textures well, making it a joy to play on the desktop too. The developer has also mentioned that standalone versions are available for Mac and PC if customers are interested.
