DreamWorks Animation Makes Mobile History With The Turbo Racing League App And The $1,000,000 Shell-Out

GLENDALE, Calif, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. (Nasdaq: DWA) redefines a snail's pace and makes mobile history with the action-packed Turbo Racing League App and the $1,000,000 Shell-Out Contest Presented By Verizon.  The game, which is inspired by DreamWorks Animation's upcoming summer film Turbo about a snail who gains super-speed, will feature the first contest of its kind to shell-out one million dollars in total cash prizes.



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.  The game is available on all mobile carriers, however, fans who play the game on a Verizon device will have access to exclusive content from the film as well as unique game customization options and insider tips and tricks on game play.

"Turbo Racing League perfectly captures the high-octane excitement of the film, and players of all skill levels will love the detail and depth that went into creating this addictive racing game," said DreamWorks Animation Head of Global Interactive Chris Hewish. "The basic game play is easy enough for everyone to enjoy, but the added complexities of the advanced maneuvers and the $1,000,000 Shell-Out will have racers vying for a lot more than bragging rights!"

To compete for real cash prizes in the $1,000,000 Shell-Out Presented By Verizon, eligible* players must achieve Daily Goals or obtain sufficient tomatoes throughout the game to unlock access into the weekly Contest.  Once in the race, players can show off their driving skills on specific Contest race tracks during an eight week qualifying period of weekly Preliminary Races starting on May 16, 2013 and continuing until July 7, 2013.  Each week, the ten fastest racers will win cash prizes up to $25,000.

Each of the eight weekly first place finishers will earn an invitation to the Grand Finale Race Event in Los Angeles to compete against each other for the chance to earn the title of Turbo Racing League Champion and the Grand Prize of $250,000!  The final race will be held in Los Angeles on July 17, 2013, in conjunction with the theatrical premiere of Turbo.

The Turbo Racing League App features:
  • Nine Unique Race Tracks to Test Your Skills
  • Special Race Events: Time Trials, Limited Fuel, Slalom and Rival Races
  • Thousands of Performance and Design Combinations: Shell Upgrades, New Paint Jobs and Neon Glows
  • Leaderboards highlighting how you rank against your friends and all the top players

Racing into theaters from Twentieth Century Fox on July 17, 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.
