Liverpool, UK – 24th February 2014 - Thumbstar Games and Codemasters® are excited to announce the launch of Colin McRae Rally™ for Android devices!
Thumbstar Games are handling the publishing and distribution of Colin McRae Rally world wide on all Android devices on behalf of Codemasters®
Colin McRae Rally is one of the world’s most iconic brands in video gaming, having sold over 10m units on console platforms before a successful move to mobile last year. At launch, it was the #1 Racing Game in 85 countries and placed Top 5 in All Games in 62 countries on the iOS store.
The game features 30 classic rally stages, with a combined distance of over 130km of gravel, dust and tarmac and four legendary cars: the Ford Focus, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI, Lancia Stratos and Subaru Impreza.
Players can go flat out through the dirt and the dust of the Australian outback, take on dramatic climbs through the mountains of Greece and get sideways on the tight and twisty tarmac of Corsica with every crest and corner fully voiced by Colin McRae’s co-driver - Nicky Grist.
Featuring the critically acclaimed Colin McRae handling and Physics model, players will feel the thrill of putting pedal to metal as they take on different surface types and blast through beautiful but challenging environments.
