Awesome top down racer .. Shame about the IAP , but to be honest, you don't really need to buy any IAP unless you want to unlock extra cars quicker.. The game cost me 1.29... I would have been happy paying 3.99 for a game of this great quality, so I bought 2 lots of 69p IAP .. So including the cost of the game...it totals about 2.50 I've spent... I'm happy with that, this game is worth that.

I hate the iap like in asteroids gunner where you have no choice but to buy extra IAP if you wanna see the whole game. Or the IAP in flight control where you can buy your way to the top of leaderboards without having any gaming skill

This game the IAP is totally optional. It's just a bit more of a grind if you opt out of buying IAP. And let's be honest, it's hardly a grind with a game of this terrific quality

Awesome game no matter of IAPs cause LeMans is an awesome car. Tweak its nitro and top speed and you don't need a new car for a long time!

Actually, in the harder races you end up earning around a grand or so per race.

Will hold off a purchase after reading dk79's impressions about the game being far too easy. No challenge = No buy. Hopefully later stages get alot harder or adjustable difficulty get patched in. I'll keep this one on my radar for now.

The game gets much harder the further you get. The first few circuits are easy but trust me, its much more difficult later on.

Please I beg you to "give up" the platform already. You'll be one less complainer to waste 5 minutes of writing on. I'm sure paying $40 to $50 for 3DS and Vita games will make more sense financially for you. Not to mentioned the many updates you'll be able to look forward to. NOT!

This site is full of nothing but whiners 24/7

Game Center isn't supported... Wahhhhhh

This great app cost $2 which is too much... Wahhhh

This free game is too short.. Wahhhh

I want my cake and eat it too... Wahhh

Jeez, get a dang pacifier

Really like this game, it's physics are very reminiscent of Super Sprint and Mickey Thompson's Off Road. Very simple mechanics, maintain your forward momentum and drifts will happen on their own.

For those wondering what purpose the nitros serve, one use is to regain your momentum out of a sharp turn. Once your vehicle is lined up with the middle of the road, hit the nitro and gain a serious advantage over the pack.

As far as difficulty is concerned, its not necessarily based on AI as much as Real Racing is, its more based on the speed of your opponents. You will need to upgrade your car, or buy faster ones when you earn the cash to do so. Luckily, I've not been in a situation that has required grinding cash on completed tracks, the money flows pretty well with the game's progression. That said, you really don't need any IAP for those of you concerned over that.

Great game, just wish it was "really" AirPlay mirrored, as in a full game @ 720p, not just a literal mirroring of my iPad's screen. Evertales did this, and I regretted buying the game. At least in this case, the game is quite good, so I can cope with not actually having true AirPlay mirrored gaming like Real Racing 2 or Modern Combat 3 does.

To the developer-
Kick ass game for sure. Thanks a lot. I look forward to more cars(even if only via IAP as i have no problem supporting a talented developer) and definitely online multiplayer. This game needs it badly because it would be SOOOOO MUCH FUN to have ten cars going at it online.
This is awesome! Well said!

I can't believe how damn good this game is. IMO its now the best iOS racer.
Everything about it is perfect , the graphics = brilliant, the handling/physics = perfect, the amount of content for your cash = amazing.
All round absolutely fantastic game. Well done and thanks to the devs.
