Racing games are not new on the iPhone, few of the most famous ones being Asphalt 5 which recently dropped its price from $6.99 to $4.99. There are also some other F1 related games including Brawn GP Racing (iTunes link) which sells for $1.99. However, a new Formula 1 game will be hitting the app store this holiday season.
The new Formula 1 2009 game for iPhone will be available in the next few days and will include 20 drivers and the 17 circuits that formed part of the 2009 F1 season. The game is developed by Codemasters who have created similar games for both PSP and Nintendo Wii.
The F1 game for iPhone will contain two modes where users can race against the clock. I did play the Brawn GP Racing for a while and was impressed with the graphics, however, the F1 game has more stunning graphics and definitely looks a top notch game.
Pricing for the F1 game for iPhone and iPod touch is not yet known, however you can expect an official announcement and a change to try out and buy the app in near future. We will do a full review of the app once we can get our hands on it.
