New Star Grand Prix 1.0.7
Newstargames.com has announced an update to its racing game New Star Grand Prix 1.0.7. The game provides all the teams, drivers, and tracks of the 2009 Grand Prix season, and allows users to progress through a career mode that spans up to 10 seasons on 17 different tracks. The latest version offers a new KERS boost system, slipstreaming and a speedometer HUD. Gamers can now play in twelve different languages, including English, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Danish, Polish, Finnish, Turkish and Slovenian.
Players try to manage their finances by purchasing sports cars and gambling at the casino, while attempting to develop relationships with the team boss, pit crew, friends and fans. Each race delivers unique challenges such as changeable weather conditions, tire wear, car damage and fuel loads, all of which affect the car's handling.
After every race, users can upload their best time to the online leader-board. The game also includes a track editor that allows racing on customized tracks.
New Star Grand Prix is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and priced at $10. Users can also download a trial version from the company's website.
