Beach Buggy Racing for iPhone and iPad coming in August

Developer Vector Unit, the creators of a number of great mobile games, have just announced their next project called Beach Buggy Racing, which will be released for iPhone and iPad devices in August.

Beach Buggy Racing is a (sort of) follow up to a previous Vector Unit game, Beach Buggy Blitz, that was first released in 2012 as an Android exclusive. This new game promised to offer up some wild and crazy off-road racing, with customizable vehicles that can be driven on 12 different tracks, with settings that will include "dinosaur-infested jungles, lava-spewing volcanoes, beautiful beaches, and mysterious swamps."

Even the characters that players can pick to drive the cars will each have special abilities that can give racers an edge over their competitors. Beach Buggy Racing will also support up to four players in split-screen multiplayer matches on one tablet or a TV-connected device. So far, there's no word on a price tag for the game.

This sounds like it will be a fast paced and entertaining arcade racing title, and Vector Unit certainly has a solid history of making this kind of game. What do you think about the prospects for this latest entry in the Beach Buggy series?
