Nope! Is there any mention of the boost in the game? I'm still trying to play around with it to get a feel, but I definitely notice the boost. However, I stumbled upon it.

By the way, as a TA writer, will you guys be doing a front page on this game soon?

Currently learning iMaschine and Garage Band.

Yup - I've submitted a review for this game, so it should be coming.

Mike - if you weren't using the speed-boost, then you'll probably be able to improve your already good scores.

I'm still ranked number 4/916 in Tutorial 1, with 14.97s, which is my only claim to fame. I love the short levels with only a couple of jumps, so I played over and over until I got a good result. The trick is:
a) Get a perfect start with the speed boost.
b) Jump just before the discolored square on the first ramp, without removing the gas finger. If you time it right, you'll jump well over the second ramp without hitting the aerial barriers.
c) I angle the car by tilting for the final jump, but not sure if that helps.
I can get just over 15s (Gold) often with this approach, but haven't managed to match my earlier record.
Give it another go!!!

If you hit the gas at the right time at the start, you'll see exhaust come from the back of the car.

Thanks for that tip! I hadn't realized there was also a visual cue. And thanks for the jump tip on Tutorial 1. I'm trying that out at the moment, but I still haven't surpassed my best of 15.21 (which I was able to get earlier today when I finally discovered the speed boost).

EDIT: 15.15 using your jump tip!

Hey guys, check out Twisted Pyramid 1 leaderboard...
That right there is as close to a perfect run as I can manage, though I'm certain it can be done better.
Took me two days too, lol.
