Hoping this isn't a sign it's about to be pulled (it's happened before with other games). Looks like a really fun game, albeit a little unoriginal. Regardless, downloading right now!

I don't want a signature.

Even if this is a blatant clone, sad to see it go free so quick

Haha, wow. I knew this was gonna happen.

But, hopefully, it doesn't get pulled.

Why would they pull it? Is it that bad?

Noise brings so many things, make my tingling skin freeze.

Definitively needs a lot of tweaks gameplay-wise, but it has nice characters and its a good looking game. Really iap heavy though if you cannot unlock the characters by playing, this is merely a demo.

It is a shameless copy of mario kart, without the gameplay quality. Its similar to the sonic racer, sonic racer being a bit better Gameplay-wise but uglier graphics wise.

Just tried it. There are so many things incredibly sad and wrong about the game. I mean really, all the devs bothered to do was change a few textures from each of the maps? Every single one of them are from Mario Kart. If you've played any game from the Mario Kart franchise before..well, nothing else needs to be said. Back to Mario Kart 7 3D.

Omg I'm glad I didn't buy this. The screen shots might make it look like mario kart but it plays like 💩. Sonic is still the iOS kart king for.

Actually, I compared the mushroom track close to mushroom gorge and they actually are different enouh to tell they didn't actually directly rip the files from Mario kart, they must have just carefully cloned every are as much as they could.. One particular ular reason was on Mario kart 7 where there are two mushroom, there is only one on the clone, along with other random little differences. They look very siliar though..but I think it couldn't have been direcltly ripped from the MK track files..
Unless you can cut chunks out..I'm not really familiar with that stuff but I'd assume it'd be difficult since it's a 3d environment to chop pieces out and add pieces in..god knows
