All Your Favourite Car Games, and New Ones, Too

Satisfy your need for speed playing all your favourite car racing games in a virtual environment.

Devoted gamers believe that Steve Jobs invented the computer mouse so that computerized car racing games would become both easier and more exciting. Once the mouse empowered a user to turn the cursor at oblique angles and trace curves, the horizons of virtual car racing stretched all the way out to the end of the infinite…and beyond. Simple as they are, car racing games remain among the most popular both on the internet and on handheld wireless applications. Those same devoted gamers believe Steve Jobs invented the iPhone’s motion sensor strictly for the sake of improving car racing apps.

You probably know that car games are deceptively simple: Follow the race course going as fast as you possibly can. How hard can that be? You’ve been following the same basic principles since you played car racing games on your old Commodore 64 system. Except that now, with the advent of 3D and a few other high-tech complications, game developers can bank the turns, create more dramatic spin-outs, and make the steering both more demanding and more precise.

Build your skills with “Dune Buggy.”
You may have been the Jimmie Johnson of your game console circuit, but playing car games with your computer requires adapting your skills; instead of a joy stick and a couple of buttons, you have your mouse or touchpad, your arrow keys, and your space bar. Online car games require their own unique set of skills and multi-tasks. Expect to crash spectacularly and burn in great balls of fire your first few times around the track. Of course, everybody knows “the fails” are as much fun as the great races.

Try “Dune Buggy,” one of the most popular entry-level car games at the internet’s most popular virtual arcades. “Dune Buggy” teaches you to move with the arrow keys and jump with the space bar, challenging you to navigate over, under, around, and through a variety of jumps, dips, and obstacles as you make your way through an off-road race course. Purely a game of speed and dexterity, “Dune Buggy” gets you in shape for more sophisticated car games, and you will know you are prepared for greater challenges when the trustworthy old buggy grows tiresome.

Advance to “FMX Team.”

Okay, strictly speaking, it is not a “car” game, but it counts among the leaders in the larger genre of driving games. FMX Team tests just how well you can manoeuvre those arrow keys and the space bar as you take your motorcycle through a series of tricky motorcycle stunts. The screen shows you the dirt track; a box in the screen’s upper left corner shows your stunts. You may choose among three different bikes, each equipped for different performance characteristics. As you get more comfortable with the game, you naturally will select the bike best suited to your style and level. FMX Team takes you through fifteen progressively more difficult levels; and, by the time you reach level 15, your fingers will fly around your keys so fast your friends will see just a flesh-tone blur.

With a variety of useful advertising applications, Android mobile advertising applications encourage the users to click and learn more about the product or service. Today, Android is an industry leader in mobile advertising and helps thousands of marketers to reach numerous prospective clients through Android advertising campaigns.

Recently, the Android platform for mobile phones has become a popular mobile phone advertising operating system worldwide. Based on a free and open source software system, Android advertising campaigns can be easily implemented on various mobile devices on a variety of networks connecting numerous users. While the Android platform is still considered to be in its infancy, its success across the world has opened up a new era for its growth while encouraging the marketers to use these applications to advertise on different hand-held devices.

Fortunately, the mobile phone advertising has been supported from different SEO marketing leaders including the Google. Recently, based on consumer feedback and opinions certain reports state that, it is a feasible and fast way to advertise on Android through mobile format website ads. These specially designed ads are particularly for the mobile browsers and work flawlessly just as the advertising ads on a computer browser.

In 2009, new features of Android advertising have been introduced by Google in the sector of mobile marketing.

GPS, Android and Wireless Advertising – Where is Google Headed?

Google now has the ability to make more money than any other business on the planet. Over the last few years, they have been working on a handful of new projects and technologies, that when put together, will give them the ability to control almost all cell phone advertising in the world.

Over the last few years, Google has spent a ton of time and money on their “Local Business” and “Local Search” projects. Those projects in turn have been paired with a project to scan all of the world maps and enter their GPS locations. When those projects were all blended together, they created the ability for a local business to target their AdSense advertising on Google and Google’s publisher network to a specific distance around their business’s GPS location.

During the time Google was building and perfecting their local search and GPS mapping capabilities, they were also holding multimillion dollar contests for new applications for a wireless platform called Android. Google’s Android, unlike Microsoft’s cell phone platform, is free to cell phone manufacturers. So, over the next few years, we can expect that most of the current cell phone manufacturing companies will switch over to the Android wireless platform. One of the benefits of this for the cellular companies, besides the cost savings, is that Google will also share a percentage of the income from the application downloaded to a cell company’s customer’s cell phones.

When all of this is live and working next year, you will get a new service that I’m calling “Push Advertising”. Google will have the ability to push ads to your cell phone based on its GPS location, the time of day, and your browsing and buying habits.

An example of Push Advertising would be to send a coffee ad to your cell phone at 7:15 in the morning when you drive within a half mile of Starbucks. If you go in and scan the code on your cell phone, then you’d get money off and Google would get paid for the completed sale. They could then do the same thing at lunch time, dinner time, and when you drive by the video store on your way home from work.

The long term outlook for this type of advertising, married with the free Android platform, is going to give Google the ability to Push Ads to 6 billion cell phones around the world, on a daily basis, in the next decade, making them the wealthiest company on the planet. Welcome to the new world of Push Advertising.
