Love the retro arcade cabinet effect/look, but the game just looks a bit dull. Was bored before I finished watching the vid.

Right i took the plunge as i'm a sucker for retro style looking games. Rally X i loved in the arcades, the official app is 'okay' but i wanted a version with retro graphics.

Anyway i've bought this as its only 69p, bit nervous as i've seen lots of similar retro remakes from some chinese developers (All those Contra type ones) and some are horrendous

Impressions -

Hmmm, 'could' be really good, i dont mind the basic retro graphics, the theme tune is annoying as its some weird hillbilly tune over and over again, the levels seem quite huge. Completed the first one but the second seemed much the same, if the car was a bit faster it would be alright but its very slowwwwww. Does it speed up on later levels ? Just when i played it it was pretty slow.

At least it wasnt that expensive a gamble, disappointing though, controls werent great either. If this was another retro game which hasnt been done yet on iOS i would have probably have liked it but for me the proper Rally-X app is better than this. This does have potential, a bit more speed, tighter controls and it'll be a nice retro remake

If this guy could do a decent Contra type clone i'll be happy !
