    Mobile kart racing title Street Kart has been receiving substantial updates in recent months as beta development of the title continues at considerable pace.

    To celebrate the progress achieved on the title so far, Fat Cigar Productions Ltd have revealed a batch of new images and gameplay footage from the latest beta build (see video below). The preview images and video showcase some impressive looking game footage of an iOS game that will be released during 2017. The third beta round is coming up in the next couple of weeks and is due to take Street Kart to the 3rd level of the game - Pro1. Pro 1 features karts up to 75mph with a choice of tyres, radiators and engines as well as additional new tracks to be added to the title.

    Street Kart is due to feature live weather (in real time from the actual location), live sun up/sun down, real time PvP action, real time championships against human opponents and has been designed to be a kart racing "simulation", but for iOS devices. As has been stated by the development team behind the game, Street Kart will feature no assists for players to lean on - the game is proposed to be a hard core karting experience. It will be an interesting experiment to see how this racing title develops for mobile. I'm looking forward to seeing how things progress in the new year.

    Street Kart Racing Cadet Championship - iOS Racing Game - Closed Beta Footage

    Ross Grayle Jones, Director of Fat Cigar Productions had the following to say about the upcoming title:

    "Street Kart is a multiplayer racing game for iOS, which is all in real time. Real time weather (if it’s raining in Rio it’s raining in the Rio track in the game), Real time championship racing with finite finish dates to determine championship winners and finally a game on iOS that allows you to truly test yourself again racers all around the world in PvP and synchronous action. We literally drop you in against real players from the get go and we don’t hand hold you around corners.

    The game has been tested by tens of real kart racers from around the world who do this professionally seeking to make it to F1 or touring cars."

    Can you use iPhone as a wheel and run the game in an iPad? I played FIFA years ago using iPhone as a pad and running the game in an iPad 2.

    Just joined to the beta:thumbsup:
  5. Great stuff Yapci!

    In terms of the controls - not at the moment, but it's pretty easy to get the hang of in Cadets, a bit more tricky in TKM!

    It would be a great addition in my opinion! Using buttons in and iPad Pro is quite uncomfortable because of size/weight! Having the option of using the iPhone as a pad or wheel will be sweet. It will make it good for Apple TV too I believe, although I don't really know how it works since I don't own it.

    It looks promising!
  7. Thanks - we're working a lot with hundreds of karters to get the feel of the game right.
