Today, the Phoenix-based entertainment software and technology company, ZOOM, LLC (DBA: ZOOM Platform), a subsidiary of Jordan Freeman Group, LLC (JFG) officially released its latest title, Plane Crazy.

Funbox Media Ltd, owners of the Plane Crazy brand, revealed that JFG was once again the only firm in the industry able to successfully update one of their titles for modern PCs. JFG accomplished this previously with Funbox’s Incoming Trilogy, Off-Road/Off-Road: Redneck Racing and Hardwar.

Some of JFG’s other update triumphs include: Aliens Vs. Predator: Gold Edition, the FIRST and BEST performing version of Killing Time (July 2015) and Zone Raiders.

Funbox and JFG also revealed several other PC game updates are in-progress, including, but not limited to: RAGE Software’s Savage Arena and Gremlin Interactive’s Re-Loaded.

Get ready to experience high speed arcade-style racing action! Easy to learn…impossible to master!

Your Goal: Earn the title of the quickest airborne Speed Freak!

It will take a lot more than fancy flying, quick reactions, sheer nerve, and skill to win here…you gotta be Plane
Crazy!

Plane Crazy features nine beautifully rendered 3D rendered race-courses. Each with dramatically different landscapes and hazards.

Additional environmental effects like crosswinds and down-drafts present tough challenges.

Three different classes of aircraft. All customizable to meet the varying demands of each race-course.

Three intensely addictive modes of play: Quick Race, Ghost Race and Championship Race.

Save your hottest plane from Single-Player mode and use it to blow away the competition in live, head-to-head Multi-Player battle races.

Collect eight unique power-ups as you fly and use them to boost your speed…or blow your opponent apart.

Up to eight pilots can duke it out for air supremacy over LAN Multi-Player.

"Plane Crazy, in all it's original glory, is now available once more. As always, we are really excited to be bringing another classic PC game available to the consumer. This could not have been made possible without the fantastic ZOOM team who continue to amaze us with their expertise in this field" said Barry Hatch, Funbox Media Ltd’s Managing Director.

ZOOM’s Chief Executive Officer, Jordan Freeman, stated: “It is with supreme satisfaction we present Funbox Media’s original and untouched Plane Crazy. The Inner Workings development team were bona fide pioneers. They took the classic arcade racing formula, gave it wings, and took it to the skies. While JFG was first established in 2008, ZOOM Platform was originally launched in 2014. In that eight-year timeframe, Funbox Media has been one of our staunchest supporters. We are most grateful for their trust in us to curate their spectacular catalog. This especially as ZOOM Platform begins to expand its online presence with its own Steam Publisher storefront. As always, we will continue our focus on ardently preserving PC and video game history as it was meant to be…DRM-Free.

Plane Crazy comes bundled with both the American and European versions, an updated digital Manual, lossless CD audio soundtracks for both regional iterations as well as an official Magazine Ad scan for $9.99 USD.
