I really liked Tron when I was a kid. The original game had all the stuff a young geek needed to get hooked with video games and what were for the time some really cool effects. I know I spent many a quarter playing the arcade game based on the film back in the day. It's funny that the new iPhone and iPad apps that have landed with games for the movie have graphics that look better than the arcade games from my youth.
The new games are available for purchase right now on the app store for 99 cents. The game has 24 rounds of racing on light cycles around tracks in Tron city. On Christmas Day, the game will also launch a Tron Mobile GRID championship that will have players competing for prizes for winning like 3D entertainment systems and more.
The player can ride lightcycles and fire cannons from the cockpit of the Recognizers to earn points and unlock new races with 16 courses total. There are races, time trials, and head-to-head competitions. Power ups are also offered and more.
