Genuine 3D games don’t appear too often on the Android Market. When they do, we take note (Light Racer 3D, Speed Forge 3D, CowPotato, Mystique). Polarbit has just published their first title to the Android Market which is a 3D racing game.
Raging Thunder is a “gut-churning, tire burning racer developed for a broad range of mobile platforms and handheld devices. Race against time, CPU controlled opponents or up to three other speed addicts in this fast paced and exhilarating coin-op style racing game.”
I downloaded the game and played a few laps to snap some screens (see below). Overall it controlled better than I expected, but I will need to spend some more time with it before passing final judgment. Please note the game is paid (€3.00 or $4.29), but a free demo version is available. The developer also informs us that the game is not compatible with the Motorola Droid or HTC Tattoo.
Other games produced by Polarbit that might find their way to the Android Market include:
- ToonWarz: A 3D action FPS featuring both single player missions and real-time multiplayer death-matches.
- Wave Blazer: Take on the most outrageous powerboats in the world.
- Armageddon Squadron: Take to the skies in some of the most famous aircraft of WWII in this arcade flight-sim / shoot’em-up.
- Iron Site: Offers a unique blend of action, strategy and simulation. The basic premise is deceivingly simple: destroy the enemy before he has a chance to destroy you!
For a preview of what is to come, check out the following video from the FPS game ToonWarz.
