App description: In a world ravaged by global warfare, small pockets of survivors scratch out a meagre existence, living off the remains of a shattered civilization. Society has been reduced to a tribal state, where rank and social standing is based on one thing and one thing only: death races!

Cracking Sands is an action-packed racer featuring a band of merry lunatics driving small vehicles fitted with big guns. Your trigger finger will be tested just as much as your straight racing skills. Like the saying goes: if you cant go around something (or someone), you go through them instead.

Mix and match pieces to create your own custom character and kart, then equip it with all the machine guns, missiles, mines and exotic implements of doom it can carry. Unlock new parts to tweak your character and kart even further.

Cracking Sands features multiple single player game modes as well as online multiplayer, allowing you to square off against both the vicious AI and other racers from all over the world!

This is exactly what this platform needs. I pray this turns out well because if this is anything like a twisted metal then it's going to be AWESOME. Can't wait to hear some impressions.

From the screens I don't see a virtual stick. I hope this is not tilt.

Same here, if its tilt only i'll pass. Big shame as the game looks brilliant just dislike tilt. The other racers i have (Sonic Racing and others) have the option for virtual controls which do work well

Looking forward to this huge fan of the "Reckless" series of games.

If you may answer one simple query... Tilt-only? or are there touch control options?

From the angle it's being played at (almost half way between top-down and the traditional racer perspective), I'd seriously hope it wouldn't be tilt-only. Not totally sure how well that would work. But definitely will have my eye on this one.

A lot of their other racing games (Reckless Racing etc) have on screen buttons so i'm hoping fingers crossed this one does

However as Tommy keeps avoiding the question i reckon it hasnt ! (Hope i'm wrong)
