Glendale, CA --
Captivating gamers worldwide, DreamWorks Animation's Turbo Racing League App, has now been downloaded more than 20 million times. Inspired by the summer film Turbo, the fast-paced game has spent ten weeks as the #1 most downloaded racing App. Turbo Racing League also recently crowned a winner in the $1,000,000 Shell-Out Contest Presented By Verizon.
"The fans have really embraced this App, reveling in the competition as well as the basic but multi-layered gameplay," said DreamWorks Animation Head of Global Interactive Chris Hewish. "In fact, users have already raced the equivalent of four hundred and twenty billion inches, which is fifteen snail trips to the moon and back!"
The Turbo Racing League App from DreamWorks Animation and PikPok features the thrill of racing in the palm of your hands and is available on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android handsets and tablets, and Windows Phone 8. Players can rocket to the finish line like shell on wheels as they drift around corners, perform crazy stunts, collect tomatoes and grind rails to earn performance upgrades and improve their race times.
In conjunction with the App's release, Turbo Racing League unveiled the $1,000,000 Shell-Out Contest Presented By Verizon. This in-game contest awarded $1,000,000 in cash prizes over an eight week period and culminated in a live grand finale event where champion Brian Dragotto of Mays Landing, New Jersey walked away with nearly $300,000 in winnings.
Now in theaters, Turbo is a high-velocity 3D comedy about a snail who dares to dream big - and fast. After a freak accident infuses him with the power of super-speed, Turbo kicks into overdrive and embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the seemingly impossible: competing in the world's fastest race. With the help of his tricked-out streetwise snail crew, this ultimate underdog puts his heart and shell on the line to prove that no dream is too big, and no dreamer too small.
