Deliverace renamed to Reckless Racing, is coming in the next few days

Posted by Dan Mousavi On October - 20 - 2010

Update 21th Oktober: The game is now available in the market, first impressions show beautiful graphics with way to less content (one sitting on the toilet is enough to see everything) and faked online Multiplayer (You can win the race, but in the results you can be last, they just compare the whole racing time), but all in all, it is a great game. Here is the QR Code and the market Link:

Posted by Dan Mousavi On October - 15 - 2010

Nearly every Android gamer knows Angry Birds by now, the most successful Iphone Game is now available for our plattform and the special surprise is, that it is free (ad supported). This came a little unexpected, because a title that is this successful on other plattforms would have done great with a paid version.
But now there is no way around this game, if you have a Android phone, you owe it to yourself to download this game immediately.
If you have a Galaxy S, or another phone where the game won’t appear in the market for you, you can download the full game from GetJar.
