Developer: Freeverse
Price: On sale for 72 hours at $0.99 [Buy]

Slotz Racer, previewed at Macworld 2009, has finally hit the App Store, featuring an intuitive concept and superb gameplay.

SlotZ Racer lets players race against the computer or friends; a unique control system allows up to 4 people to race on a single SlotZ RaceriPhone! Features an intuitive track editor to give the player the ultimate freedom to design their very own courses, and offers a wide selection of cars to race. Compete for laps or against the clock in Time Trials, drive an endurance race, (with simulated days and nights), or play a ‘Quick Race’ to jump straight into the action. The game also includes unlockable new circuits, cars, track locations and championship challenges to keep the action exciting and fresh!

SlotZ Racer is the first racing game of its kind. All you have to do is accelerate and brake, using a single button. The car goes by itself along its lane on the track. Accelerate too fast on the curves and you’ll be sent flying off the track, only to be reset on it again! The game is really fast-paced and quite difficult, as you advance in the game. Like in the developer’s description, the game allows four players to play the same race on the same phone, with four buttons on the four corners of the screen.

I really love the great new concept. The game is complete with fantastic gameplay and also an additional track editor. See this gameplay video for a closer look, as posted at Touch Arcade.

The game is now on sale for 72 hours at $0.99. After that it will raise to $2.99. Don’t Wait!
