Indie developer Cascadia Games has snapped up the license to the classic 1994 MS-DOS game Wacky Wheels, one of the first genuinely fun post Super Mario Kart entries into the then new pint-sized racer subgenre. We’ve yet to hear any real info, including formats, so here is hoping the iPad is included when the title releases later this year. Considering it is GameDock compatible, an App Store showing looks likely.
In the interim, all we can pass on is that it will feature six worlds inspired by the original game, high res cartoon artwork, a remastered soundtrack and a splitscreen mode (which we guess will be limited to GameDock users). If you need a kart racer to play while you wait, we recommend the very solid port of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.
Cascadia Games has form on the iPad and iPhone, compliments of its retro puzzle-platformer series Cavorite, that you can grab below:
