Hopefully this turns out to be more like an EA racing game and not like a Gameloft one.

As far as pricing goes, I'm surprised that it's 99 cents. I was surely expecting $2.99 for something like this.

Well, if promo codes are being handed out, I'll be more than happy to take one and try out the game. It looks cool from the video.

Maybe in a weeks time i'll be totally wrong as he'll have 20 posts and be talking about lots of other games (not just the same one by a developer) but we'll see. I've got a feeling we wont hear from 'Monte' again.
Of course we may never hear from Monte again because the first time he ever posted anything on TA he was accused of being a shill.

I understand that folks are weary of marketing shennanigans, but that's no excuse for being rude to a new member. This subject matter is closed.

Well, it may look like Asphalt, but Asphalt generally plays like crap. Asphalt is not a clone franchise, by the way, so I've seen a lot of people referring to Asphalt games as Burnout clones. Asphalt is a long established, pre-iOS franchise that was not created with the idea in mind of copying any other racer. I wish Asphalt played like Burnout. But it doesn't. No iOS game does. It would awesome if this played like Burnout, but I doubt it.

It reminds me of Raging Thunder 2, which I did not enjoy at all. I like arcade racers, but only to a certain extent. If a game goes too over the top arcadey, then you've lost me. Once you've entered the realm of Cruisin the World or Crusin Exotica, I'm out.
