London, September 15th, 2016:
Barnstorm Games today announced a major update for the #1 Racing Game on iOS, Evel Knievel, with new features and a new free-to-play format. The paid version proved hugely popular at launch, being featured by Apple in the US, UK and most territories in mainland Europe. The App went on to become the number one Racing Game on iPad in 43 countries, and in 28 countries on iPhone. This first major update adds two exciting new features: super strength and the ability to rewind the final jump; and with the introduction of free-to-play the game is now accessible to a wider audience.
Evel Knievel is an action bike game that allows players to perform crazy stunts and breathtaking jumps at Evel’s historic jump sites; created by the developers of the #1 Apps The Chase, Tipping Point and Mensa Brain Test. Fans have the chance to collect iconic outfits and vehicles, and then take part in jumps at venues such as Caesars Palace and Wembley. Bike game enthusiasts and seventies children can play as the definitive motorcycle hero on iPhone®, iPod® touch, iPad® and iPad mini™ in the official Evel Knievel app. Available to download free from the App Store.
“This is a major update for our #1 selling Evel Knievel app that adds some terrific new features,” stated Simon Jeffrey, CEO of Barnstorm Games. “So many fondly remember Evel’s crazy exploits, but with the new free-to-play mechanic the game will now be available to a broader demographic, and will likely introduce Evel Knievel to many younger fans for the first time,” added Simon Jeffrey.
“It was fantastic, and very appropriate, to see the Evel Knievel app become the #1 Racing Game in so many countries at launch,” stated Kelly Knievel. “It is exciting to think that this free-to-play version of the game will open up the game to even more Evel fans, as well as extreme sports and motorcycle enthusiasts,” added Knievel.
