Coming to PSN Next Week: Rocket Racing PSP mini

Phil Larsen's Avatar + Posted by Phil Larsen on Mar 03, 2010 // Halfbrick

Hi guys, Rocket Racing is the next title to hit PSP minis from Halfbrick, and I’m excited to announce that it will be released next Thursday, March 11.

Rocket Racing has been developed from the ground up, combining high-speed futuristic racing with classic top-down gameplay, which is a perfect fit for minis. Each track has been designed with a unique twist, suspended high in the air above the clouds and cityscapes to give players a light and almost surreal feeling as they drift around the crisp, detailed courses.

Challenge Mode is the main backbone of gameplay, giving players a number of tasks to complete over six different tiers. Completing once challenge with its specific objectives will unlock adjacent challenges along the tier, so players can choose their own path to the final race.

A key part of racing is the ability to grind. Grinding is a new concept which involves positioning your rockets against the outer walls of the tracks. This opposing force will give you a speed boost as well as grind points, and can be chained for entire races to get the maximum speed possible!

Grand Prix mode pits players against opponents in a series of races over four difficulty levels. Completionists can collect gold trophies as they race, and along with the Challenge Mode, take steps to unlocking and winning every event in the game for the elusive 100% Award!

As we all know, multiplayer is a big part of any racing game. We didn’t want Rocket Racing to miss out on the action, so to round up the package is Party Mode! This puts up to four players in the hotseat as they take turns setting and breaking each other’s score on a huge variety of tracks, in what could be described as a game of HORSE with rocket power. Party Mode even lets players customize how to win – be it with the fastest time, highest total or single grind score!

Best of all, there’s no time to wait! Rocket Racing is out on March 11 on the PlayStation Store for $4.99, and is compatible with both PSP and PS3. We at Halfbrick hope you enjoy it!

Is this the same game that’s on XBox Live Indie Games or has it been updated for the PSP? I remember the XBLIG version was really hard to play due to finicky controls.
