Dream Track Nation
Chillingo wants you to play, build and share in its upcoming App Store video game, Dream Track Nation. Developed by PowPow Games, this casual friendly racer comes fully equipped with a variety of levels, cool 2D graphics and addictive play, but there's more. A simple to use and deep level editor means this title has plenty of staying power for months to come.
Here, the object is to make it from point A to point B in the fastest time possible, pressing the virtual gas button to make your car or motorcycle go and then physically tilting the iPhone or iPad to pull off insane tricks that shave precious seconds off the clock.
Of course, there's more to the game than rotating your device. Each track (16 levels for each of the three locations- Texas, Alaska and New York) features loops, jumps for catching big air and other set pieces that force you to look before you leap, so to speak.
On top of that, there's online multiplayer for two death defying players, where both competitors attempt to outdo the other as they race to the finish line.
The coolest feature, though, is the aforementioned editor. It's essentially the same set of tools used by PowPow Games to create this title, and the online integration lets you upload your designs for others to enjoy and vice versa, opening the door for infinite value moving forward.
Meanwhile, this title shines visually, with 2D paper craft backgrounds full of color, complemented by guitar music.
Ultimately, Dream Track Nation is a simple but surprisingly deep racer that may become our latest addiction. Look for it this Thursday.
