DreamWorks Animation’s Turbo Racing League app, which puts players in the shells of their own super speedy snail, has been downloaded 20 million times since its launch. The game, based on DWA’s CG summer flick Turbo (in theaters now), has also held steady as the No. 1 most downloaded racing app for the past 10 weeks, and recently declared a winner in its $1,000,000 Shell-Out Contest presented by Verizon.
“The fans have really embraced this App, reveling in the competition as well as the basic but multi-layered gameplay,” said DreamWorks Animation Head of Global Interactive Chris Hewish. “In fact, users have already raced the equivalent of four hundred and twenty billion inches, which is fifteen snail trips to the moon and back!”
Developed by DWA and PikPok, Turbo Racing League puts the exciting world of mollusk racing into the palm of your hand through the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Android handsets and tablets, and Windows Phone 8. Players rocket to the finish line while performing cool stunts, collecting tomatoes and grinding rails to earn performance upgrades. In conjunction with the game’s release, Verizon customers were eligible to compete in the $1,000,000 Shell-Out, which awarded $1 million in cash prizes over an eight week period and culminated in a live grand finale event where champion Brian Dragotto of New Jersey took away nearly $300k in winnings.
Turbo Racing League is available for free from the App Store for iOS, from Google Play for Android and from the Windows Phone Store. You can keep up to date with new developments for the app on Facebook (/turboracingleague) and Twitter (@TurboRacingLg).
