App description: **Named one of the best Racing games of 2012 by TouchArcade!**

Welcome to the world of Sky Gnomes! These little guys live high in the clouds and have only one passion in life: racing! Every day they're tinkering with their snow engines, building new parts and customizing others to go as fast as possible - falling straight down!

All this is done for a chance to win in the daily Sky Gnomes Tournament. These races have been going on for as long as any gnome can remember, drawing participants from all over the world. Every day the gnomes test their snow engines and piloting skills against harsh weather conditions and thousands of other competitors - all for another chance at fame, fortune, and glory!

Only the bravest of the Sky Gnomes compete in the infamous Battle Cup, though. This race pits two pilots against each other in a back-and-forth battle where opponents use rockets, machine guns, bombs, and all different types of trinkets to win! These duels provide the ultimate test of a gnome's piloting skills - and nerve!

And now it's your turn to join the competition! Customize your engine and put your skills to the test against people from all over the world in one of the most interesting multiplayer racers to ever hit the App Store!

If you mean the "top in app purchases" list, those don't come up until a while after release.

But thanks.

Ah sorry, hadn't realized that they don't show up right away. Makes sense though.

Impressions seemed overwhelmingly positive on the beta in the upcoming games section.

Foursaken Media, you guys are one of the only dev teams I will blindly buy games from. Your support on here is phenomenal and you have an amazing amount of content added into your games post-release.

I wish you all the best. Take my money (and of my friends, as I decree they buy this game).

ID on GameCenter: Joshnsuch

Mention you're from TA if you send a request. This would please me.

...so is the glowing TA preview...

Disclaimer: I am one of the beta testers. The game is light and simple, beautiful and fun. Best played in the mid of hot summer. Reminds me a little of F=MA (both are falling as fast as you can basically), but it is as fun as it can be.

No, I don't see any RD feature on my iPad1...strange...

Here is my US$0.99

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Honestly, I was never terribly good at games. - Finch (PoI S2E16)

Just picked it up, and I like it a lot. Will probably be my go to casual for a while, and it does a great job at being a pretty new experience. For those asking, there is IAP and it does seem like it would offer an advantage at a glance (not sure), but nothing that bothers me at least. The upgrade system could be a bit better explained, but overall the core gameplay is fun and controls very well. So basically initial impression is positive and it seems like with the leagues there is great long term incentive, but I have not delved into the upgrade and IAP system so can't and probably will not make any detailed comments on that. One question:

Do the tracks change daily? (not sure if this makes sense since they are not really tracks, but basically asking if there is any change daily such as distance, number of checkpoints, landing zone area, etc).

Edit: While I like the neat menus Forsaken Media, I think navigating the menus could be much faster. The animations and navigation for the menus just feels too sluggish for a quick fix game. Very minor annoyance but just a suggestion.

Currently Playing: Pocket RPG, Tentacle Wars, Oh My Heroes, Minigore 2, Mini Motor Racing, Eufloria, Swordigo

There are IAPs. We've modeled them in the same fashion as Temple Run... ie one currency type, and everything is accessible by playing the game regularly. We also have a great League based system where players will only be getting matched up against others of similar skill and equipment level... so competition should almost always be fun and fair

I'm looking to pick this one up, but I need to run to BestBuy first and use the shopkick points to pick up an itune card.
