UNIS shows off Crazy Speed

April 7, 2010

Not long ago we found out about a new arcade racer by Taiwanese company UNIS (or Universal Space) called Crazy Speed Arcade but there were very few details on the game. We could assume plenty as it is a racer and generally we don’t see many surprises there. Thanks to this video just published by UNIS, we can fill in the blanks. The game has many different cars, tracks and mode to select from which is always nice – I find it disappointing to sit down on a racer with only a few tracks and options. There is a tournament mode, Time Attack mode, Local Race (playing linked) and even an Online Battle Mode. With that, it brings us to at least three racers I can recall off the top of my head to feature that at the moment (this, Taito’s Top Speed and GlobalVR’s NASCAR Team Racing).  Graphically it looks really good thanks to the high detail and effects like motion blur; the only thing I can think of for improvement is a higher frame rate but otherwise this looks top notch.

We actually can expect to see this available outside of Asia as UNIS does sell their games internationally and possibly at a competitive price if it follows the same lines as their other in-house game Ultimate which was only $4700 for a 46″ game.

Incredible Technologies announces Silver Strike LIVE for Q1 2010

October 30, 2009


With Incredible Technologies rolling out the latest iteration of their Golden Tee series this month, I was wondering if we were going to hear anything about the other series they have been promoting heavily for the past few years – Silver Strike. As it turns out they have a new edition of that game preparing for a release in Q1 2010 and after the post break we’ve got plenty of details on the game. One of the most interesting aspects they have revealed about SSL is the increased focus on internet connectivity. Players will be able to win cash with every game if they so choose (although that will cost an extra $1 to play), which should prove to be a popular aspect of the game. The customization options in the game are also pretty substantial, you can find out more (including more screens) after the post break.
