Remedy is working to bring their explosive top-down racing game, Death Rally, to the iOS platform. To do this, they are teaming up with some other accomplished game developers to pull off an iPhone and iPad exclusive remake of exciting proportions. The details are scarce, but to old fans and newcomers alike it looks to be a worthy addition to the iOS App Store. The only things we know thus far are that it's planned for a March release and it will be available on both the iPhone and iPad. While I could do my own overview description, I feel Remedy did a nice job summarizing it themselves.
In late 1996 this top-down racing game took all by surprise with it's addictive nature and excellent gameplay. The basic idea behind Death Rally: win races, gather more money, buy upgrades to your vehicle. In between wreck your opponents, shoot your way through bystanders and keep the pedal to the metal!Remedy has teamed up with both Mountain Sheep and Cornfox & Brothers to bring this rebirth to life. Both of these game studios should seem familiar to many of you. Remedy developed the third-person shooter hits Max Payne, Max Payne 2 - The Fall of Max Payne, and Alan Wake. Even though it's published by Chillingo, Mountain Sheep is the creative mind behind the addictive dual-stick shooter Minigore for iOS.
