Race and Battle - RC Cars with attitude

A Trillion Games has launched a rather fun looking race game over at the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. Race and Battle has RC cars armed with rockets that battle on a miniature race track.

The 3D graphics look impressive and you can battle against the phone or a friend (two players on one Windows Phone). You control your race car by a tiny RC Controller that sits in the bottom corner of the screen. Tapping and holding the controller gets your car moving and by wiggling your finger on the controller, you control steering. Rockets are fired at your opponent by double tapping the screen. The controls take about a lap or two around the track to get used to.  I can imagine the two player mode gets rather cramped.

Nonetheless, in the short time we've tinkered with Race and Battle, we found it to be a fun game to pass the time with. There is a free trial available to let you try before you buy and the full version runs $.99. Both can be downloaded here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.
