Audi A1 Beat Driver: Audi launches Rock Band style game for iPhone

Audi has released a new game app for its new A1 compact hatchback called “Audi A1 Beat Driver.” Available for the iPhone and the iPod Touch (and your iPad with 2x zoom), the game can be best described as what we’ve come to know as “Rock Band” – but instead of singing, playing the guitar, or banging on drums, you’ll be steering an Audi A1 through the beat of the music.

“The aim of the game is to collect objects and avoid obstacles while driving. Bonus symbols help to pile up the points,” Audi says. “The levels vary with the song, with bands like Torpedo, La Roux, The Rakes and Lo-Fi-Fnk supplying the music. What will be the smallest Audi ever is easily steered with just a finger and the touchscreen of the iPhone or iPod Touch.”

Audi A1 Beat Driver is available with different rock songs (check out the full list after the jump).

Oh, and did we mention it’s free?
