Disney/ABC Television Group's Digital Media team is launching DISNEY SUPER SPEEDWAY, a new racer game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Fans can burn rubber as animated characters from hit Disney Channel animated series, including "Phineas and Ferb," "Gravity Falls" and "Fish Hooks," and Disney XD's "Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja," "Kick Buttowski – Suburban Daredevil" and "Motorcity." The game is also available at DisneyChannel.com/Race and DisneyXD.com/Race.
?Fans can choose to start out as one of three characters: Phineas from "Phineas and Ferb," Kick from "Kick Buttowski – Suburban Daredevil," or Milo from "Fish Hooks," and can earn credits that unlock additional characters, including Ferb and Agent P ("Phineas and Ferb"), Dipper and Mabel ("Gravity Falls"), Bea and Oscar ("Fish Hooks"), Randy ("Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja"), Brad and Gunther ("Kick Buttowski – Suburban Daredevil") and Mike ("Motorcity"). There are three circuits and 9 different tracks for players to master, with opportunities along the way to unlock new challenges. Players can get ahead by accessing power ups, as well as earning upgrades for their vehicles like stylized body design, enhanced tires, spoilers, thrusters and scoops. App users can also buy in-game tokens to get upgrades and additional characters. Token packs range in price from .99 cents to $9.99, and are available through In-App Purchase.
Disney/ABC Television Group's Digital Media team has launched several new groundbreaking apps recently that have been a hit with kids and parents. "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally Appisode" is the first in a series of full length shows for iPad that feature an unprecedented level of interactivity. It recently won the 2012 Mobile Excellence Award for Best Content Extension Made for Mobile. "WATCH Disney Channel," "WATCH Disney Junior" and "WATCH Disney XD," make full length episodes of popular shows available on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Comcast Xfinity customers can access live feeds of the networks, as well as access to first looks and sneak peeks. With "Jake's Never Land Pirate School" kids can become completely immersed in Never Land, completing pirate-themed challenges presented in Sailing, Pirate Band, Map and Spyglass and Pixie Dust classes. Another favorite is “Fish Hooks,” physics-based puzzle game that features Milo the fish and a host of his aquatic friends from Freshwater High. In the game, the ever "crabby" Randy Pincherson lives up to his mischievous ways, challenging Milo to an elaborate obstacle course game.
The Disney Super Speedway App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
