What if you had an opportunity to participate in a race where there are no rules. Where you can track the movement of race contestants, simply and easily, on your mobile phone, smartphone or Pocket PC?
"Rat Race" is a racing game with six animated cartoon contestants (a dog, donkey, chicken, rooster, alien and ninja). Each brings their own talents to the game. According to PlayWizard the game is reminiscent not only of movies like the “Cannonball Run” and “Rat Race”, but also of some of the great throwback games of the 60's including "Arcade Horse Racing". All you have to do is to bet on the race outcome by picking a character of your choice and then track their progress, via GPRS.
The game is designed to run on Nokia Series 40 and 60 mobiles including N-Gage, Microsoft Windows Mobile Smartphone, Pocket PC, and Windows.
For the future, the company’s intention is to introduce upgraded versions of its games that are likely to encompass multi-player functionality that will enable users to compete against friends regardless of their location in the world.
