Barnstorm Announces Evel Knievel App
Barnstorm, publisher of #1 Apps The Chase, Tipping Point, and Mensa Brain Test, will produce an action motorcycle game that allows players to perform crazy stunts and breathtaking jumps at Evel's historic jump sites. Fans will have the chance to collect iconic outfits and vehicles then take part in jumps at locations such as Las Vegas and London. Motorcycle and extreme sports enthusiasts, as well as gamers and kids, can enjoy playing as the legendary motorcycle hero on iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, iPad mini, Android phones, and tablets in the official Evel Knievel App.
"Evel Knievel remains a hero to so many that remember his fearless exploits, incredible outfits, crazy vehicles and of course the world wide best selling toys. We are delighted to have worked closely with Evel's son, Kelly Knievel, to produce a game that is inspired by Evel's skill, flair and charisma. Young fans of motorcycle games should enjoy the fast, dynamic gameplay and will no doubt be amazed at what Evel Knievel attempted, and that he actually piloted a Stratocycle." stated Simon Jeffrey, CEO of Barnstorm Games.
"This is a terrific action game that will allow Nitro Circus, X-Games and extreme sports enthusiasts to play as the definitive motorcycle hero on mobile for the first time. Kids and fans from the seventies who reveled in the iconic Evel Knievel outfits and motorcycles can relive that experience again, whilst retracing key achievements from Evel's incredible history." stated Kelly Knievel.
The official Evel Knievel App will invite players to attempt increasingly challenging jumps at famous locations showcased during Evel's career. Before earning the right to take a jump, players must first negotiate a series of obstacles including barrels, seesaws and flaming hoops. In order to be able to complete all the levels, players will need to earn money by completing goals and jumps to purchase new increasingly powerful motorcycles.
Evel Knievel App will be available on the App Store October 22nd for $1.99, with Google Play and Amazon Appstore dates to be confirmed.
