Drag, Drift and Race for the Win in Glu Mobile's Rogue Racing App
Glu kicks into high gear with its first Social Mobile racing game for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Glu Mobile Inc., a leading global developer and publisher of Social Mobile games for smartphone and tablet devices, today announced its new freemium game, Rogue Racing. The Rogue Racing App delivers the fast-paced excitement of souped-up cars and gritty street races in an interactive 3D experience for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

"We're very excited to make our first foray into the racing genre," said Adam Flanders, SVP of Sales and Marketing.  "With Rogue Racing, we're bringing Glu's expertise in developing games with interactive gameplay and rich 3D graphics to a new, exciting setting: street racing, which we are confident that our audience will enjoy."

In the Rogue Racing App, players hit the streets in their fully customizable cars and speed their way to victory in three different racing modes: an old-fashioned street race against five opponents, racing against the clock in a timed mode or speeding for survival in an elimination mode.  Winning races comes not only with bragging rights, but with coins which players can then use to upgrade and customize their cars.

  • AWESOME 3D GRAPHICS: Rogue Racing pushes the limits of mobile hardware with incredibly detailed car models, high frame rates, and dense racing environments. Graphics are optimized for the latest iPhone and iPad devices.
  • UNLIMITED CUSTOMIZATION: Totally customize any of the 24 unique tuners, Euros, muscle cars, and hot rods with rims, spoilers, exhausts, intakes, decals, paintjobs, and even neon ground effects.
  • TIGHT, PRECISE CONTROLS: Choose a driving method that fits your style; including casual tap controls, gyroscopic accelerometer, or our new analog-style, radial thumb controls.

The Rogue Racing App is available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch at www.itunes.com/appstore
