The idea is decent, but the game itself is very lag, even on my iPad, and makes the game terribly slow, and hard to control.

It's pretty laggy on my 4th gen too... =o/


Anyone else having lag issues? might be because I need to clear up some space on my device... =o/

Game Impressions

I bought it on the assumption that it was universal. I based it on the, rather blurry, screenshot in the game description.
A bit disappointed that it isn't universal, but it plays allright on my iPad 2.

No lag on iPad 2, and the game is pretty fun.
Haven't had opportunity to try out multiplayer, but competing against the clock is pretty fun.

The game have a pretty unique idea: you can only ever turn left! Whenever you'll want to turn your dot around a corner, you press a button, and the dot turns left. It's more challenging than you might believe, due to the clever level design, at least on the later levels.
If you hit a wall, splat, you're dead!

One big drawback though: There's only 6 measly tracks, that's really not good enough!
I completed the game in under 10 minutes, and is very disappointed.
The first 2 levels are intro levels, and very, very easy.
Then 4 much more interesting and challenging levels, which leaves you hungry for more.
In reality there's only those 4 levels you'll ever want to play more than once, even in multiplayer.

If it had been a free app, it would have been ok, but as a paid app, it's much too little, even for a dollar.

In conclusion:
Fun little game, I'm sure it'll be fun to play in multiplayer, but requires at the very least double the number of levels, preferable more.
It's not exactly reckless racing graphics, it should be relatively easy to make additional levels.
