POLARBIT BRINGS RECKLESS RACING TO SAMSUNG MARKETPLACE WITH 100% INDIE

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a dirt road racing Android gamer, you’ll be pleased to know that RECKLESS RACING is now available on Samsung Apps for $1.99.

Developer Polarbit worked with 100% Indie so that more players can head on over to Dixie and skid around dirt or asphalt tracks in a truck or a rally car, taking on a colorful cast of characters in the process.

Polarbit has built up an impressive portfolio of games since forming in 2005, however this is the first time it has worked with 100% Indie, the initiative that brings developers’ games to the market as Samsung apps while providing the most competitive revenue share available.

The developer was delighted with the ease of working with 100% Indie, as Tommy Forslund testifies: “Of course we love our mobile games – we’re working on some fantastic ones right now -  so we’re delighted it’s now been published through Samsung Apps. 100% Indie managed the whole process for us and made it incredibly easy.”

Joe Wee of 100% Indie adds: “This game combines old-school racing gameplay with some state of the art graphics to enable the mobile player to race around the stunning tracks, leaving a healthy amount of mud splattering in their wake, of course! This was a great game for us to help publish.”
