Need Advice for my Game...

Hi all!!
i've finally released my first game!!
but.... i would like to have some advice from expert like you in this forum, i think that there is something wrong with my game, and i would like to hear your thoughs
Maybe the graphic?
Maybe the icon?
Maybe the menus?
Maybe the gameplay?
Maybe the price?

i say this, because, i see high downloads for the Lite version every day, but very low sales compared

Thanks in advance

Bye

I'll give it a try and get back to you here. Congrats on releasing your first game!

Before I play it, I'll say that I like the 2nd and 3rd screenshots best. They look a lot better than the other three, mainly because they don't show the track surface the same way the others do. I think screenshot 3 is the best and should be the first one people see.

The game looks decent, I'll give it a spin.

The game is good. I like the way the ship steers - I used tilt controls. The controls make or break a game like this, and I think they are great. You might mention there's a lite version if you want more people to give opinions here

The menus are good. The music seems appropriate for the game. I never listen to game music but I left it on to check it out. It's cool.

Graphics are pretty good. Frame rate is solid. It's a good racing game. I didn't see any weapons or powerups, other than speed boosts embedded in the track, and an energy refuel area for the on-board boost. Took me a few plays to figure that part out.

I'd like to see the ships go faster, but they may - I didn't get that far into the game. They could maybe use a little bounce when landing from a jump.

I think it's a nice game! I think your app store presentation is the problem.
I'd say add more to the app description somehow, and change or rearrange the screenshots. The cockpit screenshots look better than the others because of the stretchy track texture.

I think it's a pretty good game, and a very good first game! I'll buy the full.

Edits:
Also add a link in the game to purchase the full from the lite version (I didn't see one).

If the number at the top center of my screen is telling me what place I am at, it changes constantly.

I like that you can go the wrong way!

The bounce it's in program for the next update ,and with the faster ships, it goes insanely fast

Thanks, i'll follow your advice. The screenshots are really poor.

I agree, the ship speed is probably fast enough, given the speed boosts, and the potential to get faster ships.

What's the difference between the lite and the full version? I have both
