Developed by Fathom Interactive, Sky Pirates Racing is a 3D cross-platform multiplayer game where players compete in real time. Racers must speed through a three-lap, six-player race on their magic-powered Glidewings. The game is the latest addition to the Sky Pirates of Neo Terra franchise (http://www.skypiratesneo.com), featuring steampunk-inspired visuals designed by renowned pop surrealism artist Camilla d’Errico (http://www.camilladerrico.com).
The new game kicks off with eight race courses ranging from bright green meadows and cold arctic landscapes to scorching sand dunes, with plans for a new track to be added every two weeks. As players fly through the tracks, they must make clever use of six magic crystal power-ups to boost their speed, burn their rivals or drop tornadoes to slow others down; ultimately outsmarting the other racers to beat them to the finish line.
Players can race as any of the eight unique characters, or use a wide range of options to create their own characters and improve their Glidewing’s performance. New players start off with 2,000 crystals that they can use to purchase more power-ups, costumes and Glidewing parts from the in-game store.
Weekly content updates are already in the pipeline, promising more tracks, features and characters, including the skilled but cruel Pirate King.
Sky Pirates Racing is free to download at http://itunes.apple.com/
Players on any of these platforms will be able to play with each other in real time. Challenge your Facebook friends to a race from your iPad or Android device!
