Found out about this game from an article NOEN wrote for his SNAPPZILLA website. It's really unique and fun. Great art, simple mechanics, unique "follow the traffic laws" gameplay. Sometimes the L/R swipe registers a back swipe which downshifts, when I'm actually trying to swipe right or left to change lanes. I definitely recommended giving it a look. I'll be trying to complete tutorial stage 5 :O

I think I'd fancy it more if it wasn't just a straight track/road - and from the looks of the video that's all it it. Although I do have to admit I'm quite tempted.....

The production value from graphics to sounds to music & voice is astounding. I definitely see where you're coming from, though. I keeps me coming back often to see if I can get farther. I'm up to level/stage 8.

Some things I noticed:

The settings button is way in the top-right corner (only accessible during/after game) and is extremely small. It took me longer than it seems like it should have to find, and I was actually looking. It should definitely be on the title screen, imo. And of course I always wish games had Game Center, not a deal breaker though. I'd still recommend people try it unless you are waiting on some high profile titles. Hopefully I'll be able to contact the dev and point him in the TA direction.

I'm going to dive in for some more MOW this evening.

Sorry for the double post but I wanted to let anyone playing know there is an expansive settings menu complete with a full description of the hud, statistics (GC please), and much more.

All you have to do is swipe left at the bottom of the title menu where the "start" wheel is.

Looks like your progress is saved after every set of 5 levels. Makes sense because each set has its own locale. If you run out of lives before finishing the set you must start over. I've been getting better and making it farther. So far I've made it to level 10. The music on some of these tracks is hilarious and entertaining.

Quirky, unique, and presentation polished to spit shine. It feels like some bizzaro spinoff of the classic card game Mille Bornes.

My only minor quibble is I wish the swipe controsls were a little tighter. Lots of downshifting and upshifting instead of turning right and left, and vice versa.

MOW saves the progress everytime you play it, -every single time- even if you exit the level and go to thee main menu. So MOW knows how much time have you played, how many times you died, how much distance you've travelled, etc...

As AnotherKelly pointed out, there is a hole Menu and not only the "Play" button by swiping left/right in that menu.

There are a few hidden surprises in the game... have you noticed you have coins for nothing? Dig a little bit a you'll find where to use them after every single race. And GameOver is not always a Game Over at all, it's a new oportunity waiting to happen!
