You Think You Know Road Rage?! Meet 'Left Lane Looey'

New iOS app puts a whole new spin on racing games using quirky characters and a fun-filled storyline that makes the game as much about having a good laugh as it is about getting to the next level

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- CornDog Apps today launched Left Lane Looey(TM), a hilarious road racing game that puts a whole new spin on road rage. Players become Left Lane Looey, a racing delivery truck driver forever frustrated by morons who coast in the left lane. Players attempt to race past, around and even through all the cars and trucks that make Looey crazy angry when he is delivering his cargo of frozen chickens. Players earn or buy coins to purchase ammo to blow up, push away or fry cars and trucks in Looey's path so that he gets to his destination before his precious cargo melts or before his head literally explodes from losing his cool.

Left Lane Looey is available today for the iPhone® and iPad® for an introductory price of $0.99 (regularly $1.99). There is also an ad-supported, free version of Left Lane Looey with all the same features as the paid version. For a limited time, players who buy the app will receive 10,000 free coins that they can use to buy ammo, speed bursts and SereniTea(TM) drinks for Looey.

"Left Lane Looey uses quirky characters and scenarios to turn the frustration of driving in traffic into something fun and funny," says Harris Korn, President of CornDog Apps. "There are a lot of great racing games, but they are all very intense and serious. Left Lane Looey is totally different in that it is as much about having a good laugh as it is about getting to the next level."

Looey crosses paths with a unique cast of characters, including Road Rage Rhoda(TM), Cell Phone Guy, Slowpoke Sally(TM), Zombie Dudes, the Hillbillies and others who are all determined to get in his way and make him lose his cool - and the game.

With Left Lane Looey, every level is a new adventure with new challenges, new characters and a great soundtrack. In Bathroom Bedlam Looey has been drinking too much soda and needs to find a bathroom - fast! For Church on Time, Looey has to make a timely delivery to a wedding or deal with a bride-to-be that quickly morphs into Bridezilla. On the Dead Man Driving level, Looey has a delivery in Zombie City. He'd better get there quick or he'll be on the menu!

"The idea for the game came to me while driving on a busy stretch of highway in Toronto surrounded by slow and careless drivers. I thought: How can I turn this into something fun?" says Korn. "Left Lane Looey is for people of all ages. Adults love it because it's witty and they can identify with Looey's frustration. Kids are attracted to the game, as they love fun racing games and think Looey and the other characters are hilarious."

Players earn coins during the game by driving over them on the road, and by getting to their destination fast. Coins can be used to buy ammo for weapons such as the ChickenZooka(TM) and Chicken Wedge(TM) to blast irritating drivers out of Looey's way. Players can also buy Speed Boosts to race through traffic, and SereniTea(TM) drinks to calm Looey's nerves and lower his Rage-o-Meter(TM) level so his head doesn't explode. Players can also buy coins in the game to get ammo and speed bursts faster.

Left Lane Looey is available today for iOS devices. The game will also be available for Android devices on Google Play and the Amazon Appstore later this month. CornDog Apps also plans to launch the game on Microsoft Surface tablets and Windows Phone 8 devices, as well as on BlackBerry PlayBook and BB10 devices.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago.

We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications?

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
