Jump on the Wagon: ‘Real Racing’ and ‘Flight Control’ Updated for iPhone 4

The iPhone 4 is only two days away from official release, and I’ll be standing in line starting 4 AM at a local mall.  Of course, the days just don’t seem to be able to run any faster, and things like these make me even more excited.

Firemint has updated both their games Real Racing and Flight Control to have improved graphics on the iPhone 4.  The Retina display boasts of 4 times more pixels (check out our post here about the iPhone 4), which makes the iPhone 4 possess the highest resolution screen of any smartphone or mobile device.

With that said, I obviously haven’t tested out any of them yet.  Real Racing also was updated with gyroscopic support, which should add a lot more precision to the accelerometer controls.  While I’m still a bit confused with how the gyroscope will work, I’m eager to try out all these new features.

The updates for Real Racing and Flight Control are also optimized for iOS 4, so if you’ve been having problems, they should be fixed by now.  I’ve had to delete and reinstall both of them, though, because they crashed upon launching them.  It’s not a big deal, but just a word of warning to those thinking about installing the updates.

Real Racing

  • Gorgeous new graphics perfect for showing off the Retina display with high resolution textures, more detailed car interiors, improved track graphics, beautifully updated menus and exceptionally smooth graphical performance on iPhone 4
  • Even more responsive and accurate controls on iPhone 4, with three-axis gyro support in addition to accelerometer
  • Smoother graphics on iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 3 with iOS4 anti-aliasing

  • Various minor fixes and improvements

Flight Control

  • Flight Control looks better than ever before on iPhone 4, with crisp high resolution graphics optimised for the Retina display
  • Multitasking on compatible iOS 4 devices: switch effortlessly between your favourite apps
  • Multi-mode fast forward system is now better demonstrated in the game. Tap once for “safe fast forward”, or tap twice for “locked fast forward”.
  • Various minor fixes and improvements

The update is available now for all devices.  If you haven’t purchased these yet, Flight Control costs $0.99 and Real Racing $4.99.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
