Cockroach racing 3D

I wonder why isn't it in the list of new games. Anyways the graphics look sick but i'm not to keen on racing spiders and cockroaches. Please shoot in some reviews. Here's the link

Fair play to the developers for doing something new. There is already a customer review on the UK store. 3 out of 5.
4 tracks, 3 bugs to choose from. No accelerometer control- hold left side of screen to turn left and vice versa for right. No power-ups. Slightly too "slidey" control. Good otherwise.
That's the opinion of the reviewer don't forget- not my own.

A bit of a wasted opportunity. Why is there nothing to collect along the way? What about collecting bread crumbs and sweets along the way to boost your speed for example? I am sure all those gamers dying to play a bug racing game will be sorely disappointed.

Not really. I thought it was a lot of fun. I played it a little last night. i think it's tough enough without having to collect things. It would be fun that way though.

I think it's worth $2 if you want a casual game... an extremely weird casual game.

That review was me
It's pretty good, but you'd expect accelerometer control as standard really.
Oh, and by too slidey, i mean that the bugs slide a lot while going round corners.
Give it a few updates, and i'm sure it will get better, just a few more bugs/tracks to choose would be enough.
