In 2012 FORMULA 1 went over the top with F1 Race Stars! Starring all of the heroes and teams from the 2012 FIA Formula One World Championship in cartoon form, gamers got ready to sprint for the chequered flag on famous circuits transformed to feature jumps, loop-the-loops and shortcuts and used a cool range of awesome power-ups to overtake their rivals.
Gamers could travel the world and enter a wide range of different Championships in career mode and set their fastest lap in Time Trials. They could also share the fun with friends and family – accessible controls made F1 RACE STARS perfect for split-screen racing with up to four players – or they could dive into 12 player online races to take on the world! Eurogamer said “Junior F1 fans will love it”.
The game was then also released on the Nintendo Wii U console as the “Powered Up Edition”, and then an all-new mobile version of the game was released for iOS devices in 2014.
