    Default Raging Thunder Looks Like SDK App, Available Now
    Polarbit has created a really cool game for the iPhone and iPodTouch that starts to take advantage of the potential gaming and graphics capabilities. The game is called Raging Thunder and is a great look at what we can expect to come in the near future.


    video from superrama's post here

    The game is still a bit buggy but it looks really cool and is an awesome example of iPhone and iPod touch gaming potential. Hopefully it will be refined further for even better gameplay. Controls are a bit hard to get used to, you DO drive via the accelerometer, but with a bit of practice it will probably be very usable.

    Game description from the Polarbit site:
    Raging Thunder is a gut-churning, tire burning racer developed for a broad range of mobile platforms and handheld devices. Race against time, CPU controlled opponents or up to three other speed addicts in this fast paced and exhilarating coin-op style racing game.

    Raging Thunder allows players control over some of the most extreme muscle cars in the world, on a variety of tracks set in different beautifully realized environments. The crisp graphics, responsive controls and polished details of Raging Thunder are sure to impress both casual gamers and the hard-core alike.
    How do you get this game on your iPhone? Easy, just check installer, it is hosted on the BigBoss repo

    I move the ipod touch forward to get the accelerometer to make it go forward, but the car just goes back.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    Found it on Installer and have just tried a quick race. It worked beautifully but it is very difficult to keep the car straight on the road. As in the vid, you always overcompensate and wind up hitting the walls. Even so, it is a far cry above the existing games out right now and as doughboy3 says, it should usher in a new era of excellent games for the iPhone/Touch. Congrats to the developers!

    Wow. Really impressed. GFX are really good, and although buggy, it's reasonably easy to control with just the accelerometer!

    Nice one!

    I just installed on 1.1.3 and it flickered until the actual game started, then went smooth. I also disabled Vwallpaper before launching.

    Just keep refreshing the Installer Sources, it took me a couple of tries.
