The copyright freaks! I don't really care if they might have copied the control buttons from retro racing...
I'm a huge fan of those kind of games. Since F1 Spirit (MSX), Supercars (Amiga), Nitro (Amiga), Roadkill (Amiga, one of the best I ever played), Death Rally (the original DOS game) and so on. On the iOS, I really like Mini Motor Racing.

Some suggestions:
1) Copy the touch controls of mini motor racing. Way better than anything else out there.
2) Include a score board for best lap times for all tracks.
3) Don't use IN-APP purchases too much. I really HATE those!
4) Maybe you can add the best f1 driver of all times: A.Senna (or G.Ceara like in Monaco GP!)

Congrats... It's a one-man production? Have you bought the graphics, draw those by yourself,...?

Hi thanks for your tips!

1) We love it; for us one of the most playable gome of this genre; right we check it, good ideas.

2) Yes, yet ready in the game! And you ready to start the race, can see the best world time record of the tracks.

3) The game is complete with continue new update (mission, tracks and cars) only for a base cost. No in App.

4)Good ideas!

Thanks fo all.
We are a little company (2 persons, coder and gfx design) and we love to create a little product-treasure :-)

Where are you in Italy? I spent a month traveling about Italy last year. I miss coccoli and stracchino cheese so much....we dont have either here in USA. Oh and cicchetti in Venice. Narbone sandwich in Florence. Vivoli gelato.

No relation to CoD. I had my company name Black Ops Marketing before they made any of the Black Op Games.

I hope to get back to Italy this year so you can tell me the best place in town for Bestica Fiorentine the way your Nonna made it! Then I will beat you on that Ferrari F-40 simulator in that arcade on Via Nationale(I think?) before I beat you on your app.
