Breitling makes watches. Not much gaming opportunity in that. They’re also sponsoring the National Championship Air Races in Reno this September. Plenty of gaming opportunity in that. As such, they’ve announced availability of a free flight-oriented game for iPad and iPhone devices called Breitling Reno Air Races. The game gives you the option to take the helm of an airplane of your choice, flying through various courses and challenging your friends through a multiplayer component, proving that you are indeed one of the best pilots out there.
Breitling Reno Air Races features breathtaking 3-D graphics, faithfully recreating the 3-D atmosphere of the racing arenas so you really feel like you’re in the thick of the flying action. It also features gyroscopic controls, with some tactical elements included, so you can man your flight vehicles in the same manner as the dedicated pilots. The game features three modes to choose from, including a Quick Play option (where you can choose from multiple courses), a career-oriented Air Races, and Multiplayer, where you can challenge your friends in Wi-Fi or 3G-propelled races. You can also customize your jet any way you please, with various colors and parts available.
The number of flyable aircraft in Breitling Reno Air Races is absolutely staggering, starting with the Ultimate fighter aircraft from the World War II era, eventually leading into the more modern T6 class, considered the best of the bunch when it comes to high speed aerial racing.
Newcomer pilots should have no trouble getting into the game, thanks to a helpful tutorial system that teaches you the basics of flight, as well as how to get the advantage over your opponents. You can also keep track of your progress through unlockable Achievements through both OpenFeint and Apple’s own GameCenter, so you can show your friends just how well you’re doing in the field.
