Well, I personally cannot get enough of racing games. Assyria Game Studio‘s first foray into App Store gaming is Future Racer, a game which I dropped in order to write this bit. Part F-Zero, part Star Wars Pod racing, it is a fast and furious hover racing simulation with a graphics engine which pushes the iDevice. The best part though, is that Assyria Game Studio didn’t skimp on music. Techno, trippy, and well-matched to the game’s speed, there may be no need for iTunes playback at all!
We also have a hands-on preview of Future Racer.

Independent developer Assyria Game Studio has today revealed its debut mobile title due for release on iPhone and iPod Touch. The incredibly slick Future Racer is a high speed, anti-gravity racer boasting fully 3D environments and a wide range of fiendish tracks set to test your reflexes to the limit.
From complicated toxic sewer networks, winding forests littered with hazards and illuminated night-time cityscapes, each of the six tracks are bursting with character. Future Racer strikes the perfect balance between delivering high speed thrills and impressive visuals, without compensating style for speed.
Integrating full tilt control, the game is easy to pick up and play but difficult to master, with fiendish AI players and the ongoing pressure of racing against the clock. Moving away from combat-based pickups, Future Racer focuses purely on speed and skill, with power-ups including speed boosts and subtracting precious seconds from your finishing time.
- Simple accessible controls utilise the iPhone and iPod Touch tilt functionality
- Six wildly different tracks and six racing vehicles with differing strengths and weaknesses
- Compete against fiendish AI players to unlock medals and trophies
- A collection of beneficial pick-ups to utilise throughout each race
