The special iPad™ version of the successful racing game Rally Master Pro™ is expected to be available on the App Store end of September.

Hamburg, Germany, 06 August 2010 – Rally Master Pro™ already made players sweat on the iPhone. Thanks to impressive graphics, dynamic lighting, and realistic 4 point driving physics, even the Java version of the game, and later the iPhone™ version, encouraged players to hurl their rally racers to better and better times across the steppe, gravel, or ice. Now the award-winning racing game has been revised for the iPad™ and the Beta version will be introduced by the developer FISHLABS at the gamescom in the Business Centre Hall 4.2, Booth M034.

In keeping with the high resolution of the Apple computer, the Rally Master Pro™ graphics have been elevated to the iPad™ level and offer unparalleled racing pleasure. The sophisticated driving physics, which individually calculates each wheel according to the weather and the corresponding driving characteristics, along with the customisable controls, creates the perfect illusion of a real hard-core rally. Each of the 27 courses in the game has its own personality: tight curves, wet asphalt, and icy turns challenge players’ driving skills. Help is provided by the co-pilot, who gives instructions to avoid totalling the racer. With the unique, interactive replay, the last stage can be studied with numerous vehicle and TV cameras and individual sequences can be fast forwarded and rewound. The 3D damage model provides information about the condition of the car at any time – the vehicle can be repaired for the next test between stages in a variety of mini-games. Course best times and rally records can also be uploaded on-line to compare with friends and players from around the world.

In addition to these features, the iPad™ version now also offers an Arcade mode, which players can activate for every course. In this mode, the vehicle does not take damage, and even less ambitious players can beat the tough time limits. Thanks to the new ghost function in the Time Trial mode, drivers can also train even more intensely and gradually approach their best time before later immortalising their best times on-line in the Simulation mode.

Rally Master Pro [rating: 4/5]

After developing a few free racing games for the iPhone Fishlabs has finally launched Rally Master Pro 3D on App Store. The game offers a challenging gameplay and satisfies your appetite for adventure filled rally experience.

Rally Master Pro 3D (RMP) takes advantage of the powerful ABYSS game engine and provides highly detailed graphics and impressive frame-rates. The game features realistic 3D terrains and the perfect sound effects to compliment the gameplay. You can rally in different surface and weather conditions which effects the handling of your car, adding more fun and challenge to the game.

Unlike other racing games, in RMP you race against time in all the game modes. Time Trial allows you to race against time and complete the track as quickly as possible, Career Mode features three rallys each rally consists of several races, in Adrenaline Mode your goal is to avoid all damages while trying to reach the finish line in the given time limit.

You can unlock different weather conditions, mini games and two cars by completing a rally race however, the game lacks customization options as no aspect about the car can be altered.

After completing a few tracks you will occasionally be prompted to play mini-games in order to assist the crew in performing the repairs of your vehicle. The mini-games are optional as you can always automate the repair process and these can be played separately via the game mode menu screen. The mini games certainly add depth to the game and are a welcome addition.

Fishlabs has paid incredible attention in offering game options in RMP with three control modes and display options. Accelerometer is the most intuitive control mechanism and works well as you can customize the sensitivity to your convenience. If you’ve had enough of accelerometer based games then you can use the Touch [Analog] control which brings on screen steering wheel to steer your car with additional Left-handed and Autogas options. If you are comfortable with the traditional left-right buttons then you can use Touch [Digital] controls. We were comfortable with the accelerometer based controls as it allows the racing track to fill the entire screen with no distractions. The game also allows you customize the display options where you can rotate the screen and turn on the tilt horizon.

RMP offers only two camera modes while racing which we feel should be improved in the next update. After completing a race track you can view the replay to reflect and identify your mistakes.

You might not clear the stages in the first go with different surface and weather conditions but we recommend practicing and you should get better at it.

Rally Master Pro 3D for iPhone is a stunning racing game with extraordinary controls and in-depth gameplay.

Last year, FISHLABS received nothing but top marks for their mobile game Rally Master Pro™. Starting in mid October, every iPhone and iPod touch owner will be able to put the pedal to the metal and test their rally skills in sun, rain, and snow on 27 varied and detailed extreme courses. FISHLABS has elaborately revised the graphics, including vertex colouring and dynamic lighting (OpenGL ES 1.1) and once again improved the weather simulation for the iPhone and its enormous computing power. Dynamic 3D sound effects (OpenAL) and the individual, customisable controls with manual or automatic acceleration for left- and right-handed players add the finishing touches to the hardcore rally fun. You can get first hands on at gamescom, Cologne, in Hall 4.2 booth L41/M40.

In Rally Master Pro™, three classes tear across courses of asphalt, gravel, sand, or snow. The direction of the course is announced optically and acoustically by the co-pilot, so that players can ease off of the gas at the right moment to drift cleanly through the curves and hit the tough time targets without totalling their vehicles. The weather, course, and damage-dependent driving physics provide an individual and realistic driving feel and supply players with increasing challenges, especially on uneven track surfaces. With the unique, interactive replay, the last stage can be studied with numerous vehicle and TV cameras and individual sequences can be fast forwarded and rewound. That way, drivers can memorise every curve and perfect their driving style. The 3D damage model always allows an overview of the condition of the car – the repair options can be used as a mini-game between the stages to get the car fit again for the next test.

‘With Rally Master Pro™, we will put another top title in the running for the iPhone,’ says Michael Schade, CEO of FISHLABS Entertainment GmbH. ‘Rally Master Pro™ has already set standards on Java phones. With the completely revised version for the iPhone, we have really got the most out of the hardware to roar into the top 10 of the download charts with Rally Master Pro™.


FISHLABS is known for their excellent graphics and adding that natural feel to the gaming environment like the sun glare in Powerboat Challenge which takes gaming on iPhone and iPod touch to the next level. The beta screenshots of Rally Master Pro™ sure look very impressive with detailed graphics and different weather conditions to race in. It will be interesting to note the performance differences on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G.
