GAMERANGER ADDS STAR WARS RACER AND RISK II
Perth, Western Australia -- October 14, 2000 -- Scott Kevill today announced the addition of two new game titles to GameRanger, the Macintosh multiplayer online gaming service. In addition to the 41 previous titles, gamers can now play Star Wars Racer and Risk II.
Star Wars Racer. Climb on, strap in and experience the pure adrenaline-pumping excitement of the Podracing sequence from Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. Take the controls as Jedi-to-be Anakin Skywalker, or any one of over 20 Podracers, and feel the full-force blast of two massive jet engines at simulated speeds of up to 600 mph. Rein in a turbine-driven chariot through 8 spectacular worlds. Negotiate through flaming methane lakes, Tusken Raider assaults, anti-gravity tunnels and much more in a pulse-pounding, do-or-die fight to the finish where anyone will do anything to cross the finish line. How far will you go?
Risk II. The Classic Game of World Domination. It is the time of empires and armies, of countries and conquests. The world is at war and you are in command of an army fighting for global domination. Organize your forces in a ruthless campaign to crush your enemies and take their territories in this fast-paced game of strategy, negotiation and luck. See the classic game come to life with more ways to play, advanced map options, superior graphics and animated battles. As 'Supreme Commander' it's up to you to deploy your troops, attack your enemies - even betray your allies in an all-out effort to take over the world!
