Here’s a new take on racing games, Grandma on a scooter! You can get it for both iDevices and Android right now with Win7 and other coming soon.
The nursing home is awfully boring, which is why Imperial Game Studio is at it again and proud to announce the launch of the game, Turbo Grannies www.turbogrannies.com, a hilarious interactive application available today in Apple’s app store and on Google’s Android market. Turbo Granny may be as old as the hills, but she misses all the action and excitement that she used to experience – a long, long time ago. That’s why she breaks free from the nursing home and takes her mobility scooter for a crazy, wild ride through mountains, suburbia and even the desert! Available for about $1, or skr7.00 (Swedish Krona), the Turbo Grannies game is all about fast and furious riding and poppin’ wheelies.
With their sister company, Martin Flensburg (CEO), Pär Green (Producer), and Alex Sahlin (Producer) were among the first developers ever to connect multiple platforms in mobile applications. Their first network-based game application, Golf Battle 3D, launched in February 2011 and created an early buzz and has garnered them great reviews so far from Android users. With Turbo Grannies, the game is expected to be available on five different operating systems – Android, iOS (Apple), Symbian (Nokia), Windows 7 and Samsung Bada.
According to CEO Martin Flensburg, “We think game users will find this game to be fun and entertaining. It’s not a super complicated game, but addicting all the same. It’s easy to learn, but takes a lifetime to master.”
Turbo Grannies provides a number of unique features, including three different supped up mobility scooters to choose from, making for a funny and outrageous gaming experience. The game also takes place on three different terrains. On the Mountain track, there is some off-road driving with a few nasty jumps along the way. In order to complete the track, Turbo Granny better have a sturdy mobility scooter. If Turbo Granny is eager to go, then she should take the Suburbia track as it’s the best route for her to take on her speedy mobility scooter. However, if Turbo Granny is courageous and up for a challenge, then she should opt for the Desert track. The Desert track is a really difficult cross track. In fact, it is so difficult that if completed it is very doubtful that the nursing home staff will catch up with Turbo Granny – ever.
To make the most of this game, players should use their phones’ advanced features, such as touch screen and gyroscope. To help Turbo Granny, lean back and forward in order to climb the hills and fly through the air using the accelerometer.
Turbo Granny is currently available for Android, iPhone and iPad, and is coming soon for Symbian (Nokia), Windows 7 and Samsung Bada (in review). Check back at the game’s website frequently for updates.
