one question here, will there be any real time shadow on iphone 5 and ipad 4?
I am testing it on ipad 4 and I am happy to report real time dynamic shadows

This game is amazing

Of the thousands and thousands of ios games I have played, its one of the very best looking and playing ios games.

Don't want to say too much, but its quite impressive, top notch development

That is very good news about real time shadows on those devices. Thanks for that.
Plus the playing part.

From the info so far (from articles and dev posts) real time dynamic shadows, solid consistent 60fps (max) available on devices, bloom lighting, normal mapping, full retina support, icloud and too many others features to even put in.

Come on Apple, get that approval process moving quicker.

I was thinking exactly the same thing when I saw it first.
Gonna have to go on a promo rampage as, so far, it looks like its going to be one of the top standout titles of the year.
I just have a good buzz about it.
The max fps is a particular standout achievement. Combine that with the details of graphics and a very good early reaction about fun factor and gameplay.

Max FPS is nice...esp looking at these screens+dynamic shadows. Not the mind blowing achievement that FM is/will be, but still definitely a selling point for me. For racers and shooters having a high framerate is just so important.

Also like the "tabletop" style for tracks, pretty darn creative if you ask me. Only thing I want is real physics. After NFS I just cannot play a racing game without a good physics engine.

The game runs silky smooth at 60 frames per second on everything from an iPad 1 upwards and iPhone 4 upwards. Come and follow us on facebook Thanks all and feedback always welcome. Video will come soon and you can see it in action. Can't post screenshots here at the moment, but will do once the webmaster gets back to me.
HOLY CRAP iPad 1 60 fps?!?!???!? That is indeed amazing.

Then load up on the effects for A5/A6 devices if the weakest A4 device runs this at 60fps.

Wow that's just crazy.

Well, FM will still run at 60fps once on a device. That is the upper limit on any iOS device.

The range of devices that this game will hold at 60fps (what I meant by max) is particularly impressive coding and optimisation.

Physics don't know. But seeing the quality of everything else, I'm going to guess very good but more suited to arcade than NFSMW.
100% full size real physics may not be suited to a racing game that takes place on top of a table. Think more RC. More fun orientated probably. Realism won't really matter as long as its fun.

It's gone to apple for review and approval on the 21st, so shouldn't be too long. 2 weeks normally.

All I desire in terms of physics is a sense of weight and speed I don't want to zoom around a corner at full speed or anything like that.

60fps on the iPad 1 is just unreal. That device is notoriously underpowered and very difficult to develop high end games for...still amazed.
