I think I'll buy the HD version in 12 hours. Maybe waiting for some raves and hoping that there will be no sale within 48 hrs or so.

Only release tonight I was interested in, but after Sanuku's video I'm really not sure. The cars feel way too "light," like they're made from cardboard. What's with the "snapping" around bends instead of drifting? Honestly looking for a reason to still download this I guess. What looks good about this to others? I don't get it.

I hope there's a virtual stick option to steer because i dont like buttons left-right!
Like you can see in sanuku's gameplay footage, You just can't steer fluid with left-right buttons...hate that!


Edit: controls like DEATH RALLY is what i am hoping for!

Well, you can if the game compensates with appropriate inertia, but these cars sort of look like their fronts are nailed to the track while the backs fishtail as if the rear tires are constantly on ice. Come to think of it, the physics actually strongly resemble slot cars.

This looks like it's going to be the closest iOS game to RC Pro-am from the old NES days, so I'm pretty psyched. I don't need realistic physics in my arcade racer. I want classic RC Pro-am styled gameplay, and this seems to be exactly that! I'd even be happy to see the AI opponent that gets the impossibly fast nitro boost and wins every time.

If this is close to RC Pro-am, like I hope, then all we'll be missing on the iOS platform is a game that is comparable to Ironman Stewart's Off-Road Racing.
