Real Racing…. On your Cellphone

Right now, the closest you can get to sim racing on your mobile phone is visiting site using mobile internet. This changes soon as Firemint is working on Real Racing, a racing title for new generation cellphones such as Apple’s iPhone.

The game features 3d graphics and surround-sound, the car is controlled using the phone accelerometer. That’s not exactly like using your G25 but it does the trick. The game comes with some neat features such as the ability to race against your friends using WiFi or the cell network as well as integrated Youtube support for one-click uploading of your quickest laps.

Below is a gameplay video of the game in action. Yes, it may not live up to the “Real” in the title but keep in mind, this is just a mobile game. Release is scheduled around Christmas, Real Racing will work on the Apple iPhone as well as several Nokia phones.

    wow! That looks amazing!… for a cell phone. What I find impressive is that I see virtually no input lag from the accelerometer. Impressive indeed!

    Like Superapex said, almost no lag from the controls. I think I need a iPhone…

    This does look great, been wanting an iPhone and now I defiantly want one, roll on April when my current contract runs out!

    Defiantly? You mean “deviantly”? 😉

    Looks fantastic considering the limitations. I have a 2G iPhone and would at least try this game out to see how it works.

    Very cool. I bet it doesn’t have a good physics or damage system though.
