BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment & Games and Amazon team up to bring Top Gear mobile racing game to Amazon Appstore Users
BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment & Games today announced that Top Gear: Stunt School Revolution is now available for free download only from the Amazon Appstore for Android. The mobile game, which launched on iOS in June, is now available exclusively on the Kindle Fire and Android devices serviced by Amazon Appstore, prior to other Android platforms.
Robert Nashak, EVP Digital Entertainment & Games, BBC Worldwide said, “We’re excited to be working with Amazon to bring Top Gear: Stunt School Revolution to the Kindle Fire, new Kindle Fire HD and other devices. With millions of downloads since launch, we’re looking forward to expanding the game’s reach to more Top Gear fans through Amazon’s wide customer base.”
Top Gear: Stunt School Revolution is a follow up to the successful Top Gear: Stunt School. The new game delivers fans more over-the-top tracks, stunts and cars to customize and race in true Top Gear fashion. Players need to use their skills to jump higher, cut tighter turns and withstand destruction as they explore iconic locations all over the world including the Grand Canyon, Alcatraz, Sydney Harbor Bridge and New York City.
Developed by BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment & Games and Supersonic, Top Gear: Stunt School Revolution lets players personalize cars to the extreme with jet engines, bulldozer shovels, snow plows and more. Tapped into the classic Top Gear culture, the game features experimental vehicles from the show, such as the home-built “Hammerhead Eagle i Thrust.” New content is added to the game weekly which includes more challenges, stunts and cars.
Elements of the cars can be modified to improve performance and visual appeal. There are three classes of vehicles:
- Compact Cars – Light, and great for launching into the air
- Sports Cars – Fast and powerful that maneuver well; great for stunts where you need acceleration and sharp steering
- Utility Vehicles – Strong, durable and heavy; great for carrying heavy items
Top Gear, which premiered in the UK in 1977, is consistently BBC TWO's most-watched program in the UK. Top Gear premiered stateside on BBC America in 2007 and continues to air Mondays 9pm EST. Top Gear is one of the BBC’s premiere brands. Top Gear, the magazine, is the leading car publication in the UK, and the global road tour, Top Gear Live, continues to be a global success. The U.S. version of Top Gear, produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for HISTORY, and featuring hosts Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood and Adam Ferrara is currently in its third season on HISTORY.
