Hmmm doesnt look too bad. I've been after a Toobin clone for ages (Toobin was a superb arcade game where youre in a rubber ring going down rapids, some great videos of it on youtube).

Surprised there hasnt been one like that before. Same the animation for the canoe isnt better, eg it actually turns left/right but i suppose that wouldnt work with the tilt.

Might be tempted to get this once its out if the price is half decent

Of course, here are some samples of the artwork you will find in Rapids Rider:



And there are many more, but we don't want to discover the surprise of unlocking them.

As you say it is not easy to find something not "covered" by the App Store, and this was a priority, offer something fresh.

The final price will be announced some days before the game releases, but don't worry, it will not be expensive at all.

A free version, with limited features, named "Rapids Rider Free" will be available on the same date than the full version, on October 11th. So you can try before.

Rapids Rider releases tomorrow, day 11th. The price will be $1.99. It is an Universal application, so it runs on all devices.
