Description

Clockwork Racers is the brand new game from Opposable Games. A fast-paced, frantic and fun racing game... with a twist. Play on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, and experience multi-screen, top-down racing for the very first time. Who will be the quickest in the fastest-finger challenges? Who can wind their toy for the perfect start? And who can steer themselves to victory to be the greatest of the Clockwork Racers?

History

Initially developed as a prototype through the Abertay University, InnovateUK and TIGA game contest, Clockwork Racers is now heading to iOS devices.
