Description

Raging Thunder is a racing game for mobile devices. As an arcade racer at heart, the game allows the player to try out four different cars with different abilities when it comes to speed, acceleration and grip. It's played from a third person perspective and is fully rendered in 3D with the developer's own Fuse engine. Two control methods are available. The player can either use the touch screen by dragging his finger right or left or the gyro sensor by tilting the phone. Acceleration and braking is done by dragging the finger up and down on the screen. When using the touch screen to steer it is possible to enable auto acceleration. The cars also has boosting and tackling functionality. To boost the player needs to pick up lighting bolt collectibles that are scattered around the tracks and this gives some extra power briefly. In addition to the lightning bolts there is also laughing skulls which the player has to avoid since they will drain the player's boost. When no boost is left the car slows to a crawl for a few seconds. Tackling can be done whenever the player is close to a competitor who is then sent spinning.

The game features three game modes: arcade, time attack and championship. In the arcade mode the player gets to race through all the levels and has to reach checkpoints before the time expires. In the time attack mode the player gets to compete for the fastest time on any track that is unlocked. In the championship mode the player gets paid for the races and is able to upgrade his car or buy a new one. In the championship mode the player also unlocks the levels that become available in time attack and multiplayer.

Multiplayer is available over both a local wireless network and over the Internet. It's cross-platform for meaning that players with different types of handsets can compete against each other.
