"Monster Jam As Big As It Gets is the first ever official Monster Jam mobile gaming experience ever offered, and the first Monster Jam gaming release in three years," said Mark Abernethy, Vice President Business Development and Licensing, Feld Motor Sports. "There have been attempts to offer other non-authentic monster truck gaming experiences for mobile devices, but none have ever brought mobile gamers into the authentic Monster Jam world. We are excited for Monster Jam fans and all mobile gamers, as this new game has been rumored for some time, and the day has finally come to release it on the iTunes store."

"I was able to test out the new game and I was truly blown away with how realistic Max-D looks and handles," said Tom Meents, Max-D(SM) driver and 11-time Monster Jam World Finals(SM) champion. "The Monster Jam As Big As It Gets mobile App will let gamers feel just like I do when I am out on the track, and they will be in complete control of their very own Monster Jam truck!"

"Monster Jam is THE name in monster truck competition," said Mark Meadows, VP Marketing and Partner at GameMill. "We knew this was an untapped mobile gaming experience, and couldn't be more excited for its release. Monster Jam As Big As It Gets will be a hit, and offers all gaming consumers, a new and fresh gaming App that can be played in minutes or for hours."
