(London / July 27) Award-winning transmedia incubator NA3M (New Arab Media), has revved up its flagship demolition derby title, Nitro Punch with the release of its latest update to the top ranking title (1.3). The game, which pits armored vehicles against each other in a brutal fight to the finish, has quickly reached top 20 downloads lists across the MENA region since its soft launch, and is now available to download for free on the Apple App Store.
Nitro Punch players select from a range of customizable weaponized vehicles before racing through a variety of hazardous environments. Featuring a powerful state-of-the-art 3D engine which combines two different game modes (drag race and a demolition arena), players use a host of devastating and exotic weapons, from a punch launcher to explosive barrels, as they race to destroy their enemies and become the Nitro Punch champion. The rules are simple: the last driver to survive wins.
Update 1.3 introduces a rich gaming experience by featuring extreme landscapes which include a scorching desert and an aircraft carrier in the middle of the ocean. It also sees new additions, including a jeep, to the already extensive fleet of monster trucks, cruisers and Formula One cars available to players. A vast new Aztec temple arena defended by a Stone Guardian has also been introduced. Here, cars face each other down with players able to knock opponents out of the arena into lava pits surrounding the temple as they battle.
Eske Knudsen, NA3M’s lead game designer, says “Nitro Punch is fast becoming a break-out hit across the MENA region and beyond. With our latest update the game now delivers even more awesome features, customization options and an improved user interface to give players more of the things they love. We hope that more players all over the world will soon be revving up their Nitro Punch engines. And this is just the tip of the iceberg of what’s in store for players. Mad Max, eat your heart out.” The game is currently ranked among the top 20 most downloaded racing apps in 8 countries within the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Bahrain, Egypt, Algeria, Oman, Tunisia and Israel).
