Fire Panic Released on iPhone

Playtainment, the family game label of publisher RLT Interactive GmbH Games Publishing, released the fast-paced, touch-enabled game Fire Panic for the iPhone and iPod Touch today. RLT active has seen great success in the Apps store with its release of RLT Poll position, an app that tracks live standings in the Formula 1 race circuit.

Fire Panic features retro graphics and a “touch & play” mechanic. This gameplay mechanic is used by the players to plan routes from the fire station to the fire using a city map. The challenge may seem simple on paper, but it evolves over time as players have to account for other hazards such as traffic.

Playtainment also announced that there will be a DSi release sometime in the next couple of months.
