Features High Speed RC Car and Boat Racing Game Now Available
Glen Cove, NY (January 10, 2001) - Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ small cap: AKLM), a worldwide interactive entertainment company, today announced that its remote-control racer, RC Revenge Pro, will ship to national retail outlets today for PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system.
RC Revenge Pro allows players the thrilling experience of high speed racing remote control cars and boats through all-new movie-themed worlds. Gamers can race against each other in multi-player mode around twilight villages, across desert islands, through lagoons, and over valleys. Drivers can eliminate competitors by assaulting them with weapons such as water balloons, oil slicks, and lightning bolts. The game features fully-animated environments, taking advantage of the graphic capabilities of the PlayStation 2. New vehicles are earned by completing challenge cup races which occur in diverse environments including Jungle, Horror, Sci-fi, Monster, and Cartoon Worlds and an exclusive Pirate World. The races take place on water-specific and hybrid tracks so that boats can now race against cars.
RC Revenge Pro boasts unique elements specifically designed to enhance game play. These include the special track editor, allowing the player to create their own racing tracks and save these custom tracks to a memory card. RC Revenge Pro also features a handbrake giving the player the ability to power-slide or perform super tight turns, as well as rear-view mirrors, which allow drivers to see competing cars approaching from behind.
Acclaim has also dedicated a website to RC Revenge Pro in order to provide additional information, artwork, and movies for the game. This site is accessed at: http://www.acclaim.com/games/rcrevengepro/index.html.
