A year after Slick Entertainment (N+ for XBLA) released the vehicular combat racing game on XBLA, Scrap Metal is now available on the App Store with a Universal Binary release, Retina display support, Game Center leaderboards and achievements, and more. 

Slick Entertainment has a development blog post about the port in which the Vancouver-based studio talks about how it settled on the directional steering touch controls, automatic firing, and four game modes (Race, Derby, Survival, and Time Trial) with five races each instead of a big campaign.

Scrap Metal for iOS is available to buy for $2.99 on iPhone (3GS and newer), iPod Touch (Third Generation and newer), and iPad. The team says it's also workin on an Android version but hasn't announced a release date for that yet.
