Avanquest Software adds two new budget games

Avanquest Software Publishing Ltd has launched two new games titles in its White Label budget

Press release
August 2008


Tear up the track … carve up the competition


The legend of Rally games is back as SEGA Rally motors onto PC, promising to push the boundaries of the Rally genre to a new level. SEGA Rally looks and plays better than ever offering fans bumper-to-bumper, heart stopping, and adrenalin pumping action sure to induce a grin to player’s faces.


SEGA Rally retains the looping course of its predecessors rather than the customary point-topoint of many other titles. This, amongst other features, helps to ensure close competitive race action with rival cars all vying to be first over the finishing line to pick up the most points.


Key Features:

  • Over 30 licensed and non licensed vehicles covering the very best 4WD, 2WD and Classic Rally vehicles and some very exciting unlockables.
  • Race within 6 beautiful environments across 16 unique deformable tracks.
  • Go bumper-to-bumper in split-screen mode or race online up to 6 players.
  • Compete across 33 rallies to reign supreme in the SEGA Rally Championship.


Accessible but realistic car handling guarantees a fun and rewarding experience as the signature SEGA Rally power slides are still a feature…


Each environment is based in a colourful, exotic location, with each track full of charm and character mimicking varied environments from around the globe. Surfaces vary from course to course, and the track deformation feature ensures that each surface cuts up and ruts differently making each surface a challenge to master.


The circuits feature an interactive environment incorporating surface deformation and smashable scenery, which will cause the experience to vary each lap.


As the race goes on your car will get muddier and dirtier, with trips through the water cleaning your chassis off again. Don’t get caught behind your opponent on a dust track, your visibility becomes impaired, which makes taking the next corner all the harder.


The result is a dynamic, multi layered, game structure that produces an exponentially huge number of game play possibilities, creating a game that at heart is a serious and rewarding driving game, but with the game play sensibilities and fun of an Arcade Racer.
