[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Gamers who want to give their inner child a pure adrenalin-fuelled experience can now download the new free-to-play app Cirkits: Toy Robot Racing from Cohort Studios Ltd., and get ready for hours and hours of addictive fun and excitement that will make the "real world" seem impossibly boring, either playing individually or via asynchronous multi-player.
Cirkits: Toy Robot Racing lets gamers enjoy the thrill and challenge of racing extremely cool state-of-the-art semi autonomous remote control robots around action-packed and surprise-filled tracks, which are staged in green-screen studio events. Gamers who develop a talent for obliterating their robot foes, beating track times, and collecting loot will earn bonus credits and climb the ranks all the way to the top. However, those who enjoy some early success shouldn't get too over-confident, as each increasingly-difficult track is laden with dangerous traps and tricky obstacles.
Other fun-filled Cirkits: Toy Robot Racing features include:
* A jetpack for blasting past hazards, obstacles and anything else in the way
* A turbo power-up option that reaches ridiculously fast speeds
* The ability to punch or shoot past dangerous enemy robots
* The option to strategically design robots circuits with boost chips to enhance and fine tune performance
An innovative asynchronous multi-player option allows users to play against their friends at any time by issuing and receiving challenges. When accepting a challenge users must beat their opponents high score as well as race and battle against an accurate replica of their robots performance on the track. Competitive asynchronous play provides all the excitement of real-time multi-player, as well as the convenience of when to play, via guaranteed perfect performance without the need for a continual high bandwidth connection.
Plus, gamers can also battle against a "mimic", which is a robot that records their best track score data and uses it to race against them, or they can challenge their friends and keep score via the Game Center. They can also upgrade their robot, and collect new ones, to enjoy different styles of play and racing.
"Cirkits: Toy Robot Racing is an extremely fun and unforgettably challenging experience for gamers of all abilities," commented Darran Thomas of Cohort Studios Ltd. "And we're just getting started. We'll be supporting the game with an ongoing stream of exciting new content, such as new characters, tracks, music and gameplay features!"
