Rope Racers, from Finnish developer Small Giant Games, is set to arrive on the App Store, and Google Play. While you can have free-to-play instant multiplayer game on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch March 10th, it will swing into Android devices on March 17th.
So, get set to swing, run, and race in various locations and levels against nine other people from around the world. And, your goal would be to become the best Rope Racer of all time! Interesting, right?
What you will get to know as is the multiplayer element is an integral part of the gameplay from the start. The game uses intelligent matchmaking to find opponents of similar skill level to make the racing experience smooth but challenging.
Players race by throwing ropes with a simple touch-and-hold mechanic. Swinging is used to jump over dangers and to gain that extra speed needed for victory. The players use boosts and collect cash hidden in the levels – all the while avoiding obstacles, which cause you to lose valuable momentum. The other racers are always right behind you!
Going by what Small Giant says, you can up the competitive aspect of the game, by betting virtual currency as a participation fee for the races. Your position at the finish line defines whether you lose or multiply your bet. One key aspect of the game is building your team by collecting funny and cool characters, whose skill and appearance can be upgraded with the coins earned in the races.
The game is available in 9 languages: English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, French, Italian, Russian, Turkish. Get set to swing!
