Virtual Programming has announced release, in box product format, of
the FlatOut 2 racing game for the Mac
It requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 on an Intel-Mac (PowerPC Macs aren’t
supported) and costs US$39.95.
Here’s how the game is described: “Experience the drive of your life
as you throw yourself around on and off the track causing fences to
shatter, tyre walls explode, water tanks and barrels fly across the
track into other cars. And if anyone, including you, gets caught up
in a big smash sit back and watch as the driver gets catapulted
through the windscreen in spectacular effect. With over 5000
destructible objects on each track and 40 deformable pieces on every
car sparks are guaranteed to fly increasing the mayhem with every lap!
“As the different races progress you’ll recognise which of the AI
characters are your closest rivals. How you decide to take them out
is up to you, like slamming them into a bridge, stealing a lead
through an alternate route or Nitro boosting your way past them in
the final moments.
“And with the ever popular Rag Doll mini-games from the original
FlatOut making a welcome return and better than ever with 12 Rag Doll
events, a Rag Doll Championship as well as online support for Rag
Dolls, FlatOut 2 is set to be the biggest, brashest and most
destructive action racing game of 2008 on the Mac.”
