Ok...after Fishbowl racer, this is another game without the usual 3 stars and the 'story mode'...I don't know if u care about it, Donut Games devs but going on in this way you are losing many customers (imho!).
well, at least I will not buy this one, like I did with Fishbowl racer

I love this world!

This has great controls and really excellent core gameplay, but with only one mode with little depth or variety to it at that, gets old pretty fast.

Ahh but THIS is the kind of Donut game I like best! More modes and extra stuff would be great but I want pure highscore grabbing endless stuff!

I was just going to say, some people prefer the endless stuff, whilst others (like me) fancy the challenges more.

But since this is part of the 'Action' series (after Action Hero and Action Buggy), the dev's were always going to make it just endless

Hey......this game does not work on the new iPad!!!
Works fine on my iPad 2.
Loading screen is full screen on initial load, then shrinks down to iPhone size in bottom right corner. Press start and nothing happens.

There are bound to be some issues with the new device at first since, as you know, very few developers even had access to one themselves until today.

I'm sure in the coming weeks there will be a FLOOD of updates coming to either outright support this new resolution or, at the very least, run properly on the thing.

Still thinking about buying this one. Can't see any really positive opinions. My thoughts about Donut Games is Traffic Rush and Rat on skateboard. Good endless but not one which could become unique. Just a good game. I'm thinking if I want to buy sth else apart from this.

I'll try to put some out quickly (positive feelings)!

This is a little deeper than it might first appear as there are several aspects going on at once.

1) Grabbing crates and cash.
2) Bumping badguys (even better, bumping them off road or into a hole).
3) Passing as many cars as possible.
4) Taking jumps (some are just for fun bonus points others are crucial with a miss meaning instant death).
5) Avoid fatal hazards (like rocks, mine, and other debris)
5) Boss battles (bump grenades back at the baddy quickly or get out of the way before they blow up).

All combined together makes for a pretty wild ride!

There is also some sort of combo scoring mechanic but I have yet to get how it works other than often if I score a lot of points in rapid succession I receive a combo bonus on top of just the standard points.

Bought this last night and love it.


I own all of the games by Donut Games but haven't loved the last few releases, this game changes that.
