  • Android Death Rally now available globally on Android!



    Remedy Entertainment is proud to announce that Death Rally for Android is now available worldwide on Google Play!

    In celebration of the launch, Remedy is giving away the game for $0.00. That’s right, free!

Additional parts can be gained for free by performing TapJoy sponsored actions. Of course, gameplay is and will always be completely free to play.



    Death Rally is an intense, action packed, top-down racing game with addictive gameplay and guns. Lots of guns. Make a run for the finish line with a trail of burnt rubber and spent shells behind you… along with the flaming wreckage of any opponent dumb enough to get in your way.

        Ugh, the app is 50mb, when I try to download it says "insufficient space" I've got 2 gigs on my SD card but only like 35 megs on my phone memory. Is there any way to download to SD card?

          [MENTION=22841]H4wkeye[/MENTION] Need to get our Android specialists in to answer this one, but I think the only way is to free 50+MB on your phone memory by moving other apps to SD card from phone memory and then downloading.

              Darn, doesn´t seem to be working on my LG P-500. Doesn´t start at all when I click the icon. Not really suprising with this shitty device, but I was getting all hopeful when the store told me it was compatible.

                H4wkeye:
                Some Android devices may require not only that 50mb of free mem but twice that when you install a 50mb app. Once it's installed you can copy it to your SD card using the device settings and application control.

                  Thanks, I'll move some apps over to make room.

                    I downloaded this app a week ago and it played great, but ever since I updated it, it just goes to a black screen indefinitely. I have tried several times to reinstall the app, but the same situation happens. I'm using a Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

                      Why can't the game files be unpacked to the SD Card? Requiring someone to have 100+ mb free on internal storage is ridiculous and would require me to uninstall every thing on my internal storage which isn't possible.

                      Also, why does the game take up 50 mb on my internal storage when it's installed on the SD Card?

                      I had 128 mb free on my internal storage, installed the game, it went down to 70 mb before even starting the game to unpack the files.

                        I like the game, but using 110MB even after being moved to SD is simply greedy.

                        I wish the game did as Gameloft games do, and download the assets directly to the SD card on first startup.

                        [s]EDIT: as I've previously rooted my handset, I copied /data/data/com.remedy.DeathRallyFREE/app_dr_data/ to /sdcard/Android/data/com.remedy.DeathRallyFree, deleted /data/data/com.remedy.DeathRallyFREE/app_dr_data/ and made a symlink in its place to the sdcard copy. Seems to work, for now. Not sure how it'll handle upgrades of the app, though.[s]

                        I wouldn't recommend doing as I describe above; when I upgraded to today's upgrade of DR, my handset spontaneously rebooted. It might be unrelated, but I wouldn't want anyone to risk filesystem damage from following the instructions above. Probably just best to wait until a new version is released that downloads the assets directly to the SD card.

                          Hmm.
                          Has anyone been able to run this on a HTC Sensation?
                          I just get "not compatible with this device". Bummer...

                          Edit:
                          But on my ancient androidified HTC HD2 it worked without a hitch.
                          The Sensation unit is updated with the official ICS from HTC.
                          The HD2 is very very unofficial Gingerbread from xda.

                          Is there a problem with ICS and Death Rally?

                            Baaaaaaah!!! My smartphone isn't supported. Oh well. Guess I'll keep waiting for a PC release (I can only hope).
