I would like to give you an answer, but I didn't play jAggy Race long. It didn't grab me. The WiiWare MotoHeroz is awesome. We'll find out tonight if this one is great too, but I imagine so.

Awesome game so far. It's got some similarities to jAggy Race, but it's unique enough on it's own. The ghost mechanics also really add to the game's replayability and fun factor.

Only thing I've had issues with is the jetpacks. Haven't quite mastered movement with them and it's a little annoying. Sure it'll get easier once I get used to them.

Oh, and I do think they push the IAPs a bit too much. But they don't seem like they'll be necessary.

It's the only release I grabbed tonight. Had to get it after I saw that there was asynch multiplayer. If it's anything like the one in DrawRace 2, this game will be a ton of fun.

hi Snoop,

The HD version is specific for iPads, but is not related to retina display. The iPhone version supports the iPhone 4 retina display as well.

Game Center has achievements, but our Leader Boards are custom built by us, as we needed more Boards than it provides, plus we have ghost replay.

You should be able to upgrade everything without IAP. I've only played a little of this, but I've earned a ton of money so far. You earn quite a bit of cash each time you get a star for a track (3 stars per track). You also get a lot if you find the track's treasure chest.

I've upgraded my car 6 times, and I've only played the first two tracks.

Upgrades are for your car - acceleration, top speed, and item boost. I don't know how new cars work because I haven't got that far yet.

It doesn't seem to push IAP at all. I know some ppl were saying that earlier. It only goes to that screen when you have enough money for an upgrade.

So is the Touch Arcade league going to be the official one?

Cheers.

Do the upgrades not mess up the daily challenges a bit? I assumed it'd be a bit like 1000 Heroz with everyone on a level playing field but it doesn't really sound like that if everyone's cars are different

Hi Toys,

The IAPs are for an option for players with less time. There's nothing in the IAPs that you can't earn through playing the game through on your own.

There's no "daily challenges" as in 1000 Heroz, the top players will separate themselves soon enough, regardless of how they acquired their upgrades.

@jenkki

Is the red car the ghost of the top player on the leaderboards?
