Hm... all the discussions in this thread makes the game sound more like... SONIC ON WHEELS! With that gravity thing of course. Am I right?

How's the sense of speed in this one? The iOS version of Sonic 4 is so slow compared to Sonic Rush on DS. Which one is this game's speed closer to?

I think the sense of speed is perfect...

And arta... Smash on the breaks right after you hit a block and you'll go back about 1/5 the distance you would if you just held the gas down... It's not an issue at all, just another mechanic to learn how to handle. =oD

Ah I see. Still annoying though.

When you do learn a track and smoothly jump over obstacles, fly in a semi-circle around bends and flip upside down and go from forward motion to reverse without stopping, it's a great feeling.

This is what i love about iOS gaming, this 'gem' appeared from nowhere, no huge hype yesterday, no shill bidders going on about what a great game it is.

Told a few friends about this, i'm loving it, had a quick go just now, plays really well, superb graphics and only 69p. Bargain. Great game by this swiss company, left a 5/5 rating on the app store. Roll on their next game. Would like to see a platform game from them

In his AppStore review Syntheticvoid brought up the wish for a level editor in the future. That would be amazing.

Can't believe this game came out of nowhere! =oD


I got the #1 time on Track 3, and still can't get Gold... =oO


Damn this game is hard! =oD

**edit**

WOOHOO!!!! Got gold right after I posted this... =oD
