The technology Petrobras uses to produce the best fuel in Brazil will be introduced in virtual race tracks. The Company launched the "Podium Grand Prix" game in Orkut and in Facebook.
One of the remarkable differences of the game is its looks, a crossover of the games designed in the 1980's - with simpler graphs and playability - and those played on increasingly powerful platforms. In total, there are four evolutive stages.
The game begins with graphics that are similar to those of the well-known Enduro game, of the 1980's. The difference is that the player can use the Podium gasoline. When the driver fills the car's tank up, he gets more power and game graphics improve (as per the evolution of the video game consoles).
During the race, the player can fill up with regular fuel, which only increases the tank's level, or with Podium gasoline. The idea is to show that Petrobras' fuel offers cutting-edge technology.
With "Podium Grand Prix," web surfers can race individually, invite their friends in the social networks to play a quick game or even create tournaments and challenge several players. The result of this virtual competition will bring the top scores in a general ranking of the best players together.
The evolution the Podium gasoline affords in the virtual cars is also noticed by the cars that run on the streets. The Petrobras technology ensures more power and performance, lower emission levels, and more protection and durability for the engine.
