[prMac.com] Bologna, Italy - NuOxygen Game Publishing today is pleased to announce the release of Ikaro Racing for Mac OS X, available on the Mac App Store. Ikaro Racing is a unique air racing game. Instead of squeaking wheels, gamers can expect turbulent neck-to-neck duels with agile racing airplanes.
Ikaro Racing offers racing fans a completely new game experience on challenging and varied air courses where pilots fight against each other. Cross tremendous dusty canyons and impressive cities or pass with breakneck stunts the checkpoints over a moony island.
A dynamic weather system adds even more excitement to the race. Suddently starting snowfall or an upcoming thunderstorm can bring your certain believed pole position in great danger. This is not one of the many flight simulation games you can find in the App Store. This is "The Racing 3D Flight Simulator", nothing else comes close. Try to believe!
You are the pilot of a high performance airplane racing for life at low altitude against a fleet of colorful peers in a breathtaking scenario, working your way from apprentice to full-fledged ace pilot. Ikaro Racing is not a procedural nor a mission oriented flight simulator. Ultimately Ikaro Racing is a flight simulator designed for players who love flying and having fun. From the moment the game is started the player is engaged.
The pace of the game is carefully crafted to enhance skill, resulting in a pleasant and entertaining experience. Enjoy and explore the magnificent scenario of the city with all its skyscrapers, fly at low altitude over the water of a calm laguna at dusk, enjoy the beauty of an Arizona canyon under the noon sun. All of this and more is part of the Ikaro's experience. The airplanes are designed with maniac care for the details, cameras from all directions will make you experience the emotion of flight in a way that you have never dreamed of.
The camera views during and after the game session highlight the inherent beauty of the surroundings creating a truly immersive experience. Since Ikaro Racing HD is a very dynamic game the player must always be ever-alert, soaking in the scenery but wary of what lies ahead. The game is designed for Joystick, Mouse and Keyboard controls. Five scenarios with up to 22 different traces provide the visual environment for the game. Up to six different airplanes can be chosen by the player in each session.
Since every session of the game is fully recorded, the player can go back and watch its performance and that of other players from many different view angles, the perfect game for the family entertainment. In our culture racing has always represented a way to establish strength and courage. Since ancient times people have been racing, first on foot and then riding horses and cars and motorbikes ... everything but airplanes! Flying is dangerous and expensive. The few air races that took place until now were races against time. For the first time in history now you can be a pilot and take part in a race in the air without the risk of breaking your neck. You are a member of the Ikaro Racing team.
