Namco press release (February 27, 2009):

    Namco Brings Ski and Snowboard Adventure to the App Store

    SAN JOSE, Calif., - February 27, 2009 - Namco Networks, a leading publisher and developer of mobile games and entertainment for mass-market casual gamers, today announced the availability of Alpine Racer® through Apple's App Store for iPhone and iPod touch for $5.99

    With blistering 3D graphics, Alpine Racer brings skiing and snowboarding to life as players pull off aerial tricks and fly down the alpine and try to win the King of the Mountain challenge. Players are presented with two game modes - conquer Story Mode to unlock a secret character or take on Time Attack and race against your toughest competition, a "ghost" image replay of your best timed run.

    The fast, fun action of Alpine Racer is made possible through intuitive controls, allowing players to tilt the iPhone or touch the screen to control their racer. The game also features:

    • Two characters, plus two unlockable characters
    • The opportunity to earn points to upgrade top speed, acceleration, power and outfits
    • Adjust the control, power, acceleration and max speed

    "Alpine Racer takes full advantage of the iPhone's accelerometer and touchscreen controls to give players full control of the race," said Scott Rubin, vice president of sales and marketing for Namco Networks. "Between the controls and the high resolution graphics, skiing and snowboarding fans are going to feel like they are truly on the slopes."
