Freeverse iPhone Apps
Freeverse is showcasing four upcoming iPhone and iPod touch games at Macworld Expo: Flick Baseball, SlotZ Racer, Roads of Ruin, and Days of Thunder. Flick Baseball is an arcade baseball game where users can customize their characters and play against other teams. The will include several modes, including full season, exhibition and championship as well as an added feature: home-run competition. Controls for the game have yet to be fully developed.
SlotZ Racer is an iPhone version of the old slot car game, where the person’s car is kept on a track by a small pin sticking out of the bottom of the vehicle. The game will come with pre-defined tracks ranging in difficulty, along with added abilities such as a multiplayer mode, and being able to create custom race tracks.
Roads of Ruin, takes place in the year 2023 after a nuclear war has damaged the world and states are still at war. Players must drive a motorcycle to deliver messages and packages between cities, while fighting off attacks from people after the goods. Money earned from completing deliveries can be used to upgrade the equipment.
Days of Thunder is based on the original motion picture and is currently being developed for Paramount pictures. In the game, players hop into their NASCAR Stock car and race against other drivers around the track. During the race users will have to time when to go in for pit stops, to get gas and replacement tires.
SlotZ Racer will be available from the App Store within a couple of weeks (the release date for the other three games was not provided).
