MacNN Checks Out Cro-Mag Rally
3:24 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Mac news site MacNN has presented a short preview of Pangea Software's upcoming racing game, Cro-Mag Rally. More in the spirit of a Mario Kart console-style racer than a realistic racing sim, this game will pack all the gorgeous visuals and playability of Pangea's previous titles Nanosaur and Bugdom, along with the great sounds and special effects we have come to expect. However, to quote a certain bard out of context, "the play's the thing" - how will this game play, when the simulated rubber hits the road? Here is an excerpt:

Cro-Mag Rally is a kart-racing game exclusively for the Mac in the same vein as console classics such as Mario Kart or Diddy Kong Racing. The game features primitive, stone-age vehicles with very crude weapons that you wouldn't be surprised to find in a Flintstones movie. Cro-Mag Rally will include 9 tracks in the single-player, tournament mode as well as 3 or more tracks for the battle mode. Battle mode is the multiplayer element of the game where you can play with up to six people over a network or play split-screen on the same computer. The multiplayer games vary widely including Capture the Flag, Tag, Survival as well as other currently unnamed modes of competing against your friends and foes.
Ah, yet another game we can't wait for. Cro-Mag Rally is due this November, if all goes as planned, and will require OpenGL hardware acceleration to run. For more information on this title, check out the rest of this preview, as well as IMG's own Cro-mag screen shots and an interview with Brian Greenstone of Pangea.
