Crash Time / Alarm für Cobra 11 series
Group DescriptionThe Alarm für Cobra 11 games are based on the German television series of the same name, first aired in March 1996, following the lives of different police detectives. They carry the official license. The first game based off it was Alarm für Cobra 11, released in 2000. The first titles were handled by different developers, including VCC Entertainment GmbH & Co. KG, Davilex Games B.V. and Provox Games.
From Alarm für Cobra 11: Nitro (2006) onwards, all development is handled by Synetic GmbH. Its next game, Alarm für Cobra 11: Crash Time was also the first to be released outside of Germany. Since the international audience was largely unfamiliar with the series, despite it being broadcasted in different countries, it was re-branded as Crash Time outside of Germany, with the follow-ups Crash Time II (2008) and Crash Time III (2009). In Germany the Alarm für Cobra 11 title is still used.
All initial games were Windows titles, but starting with Alarm für Cobra 11: Crash Time in 2006, Xbox 360 versions were developed alongside as well.
