The novelty of the multiplayer mode of this particular game consists in the concept behind it. Generally, in racing multiplayer applications two or more players drive a virtual car on the same race track. In the application developed by ScienceSoft the car moves from one iPhone to another assuring continuous action, provided the finish line is reached within 60 seconds on each device. In order to get to the finish under 60 seconds and jump to another iPhone, the racer has to skillfully avoid such obstacles as oncoming traffic, slow moving vehicles, and ducks crossing the road. The car is maneuvered by tilting the device, and its speed is controlled using “Gas” and “Break” on-screen buttons.
