I played this game, it's pretty cool. Pretty hard actually! Great deal for only $0.99 too!

Two reviews with one post count. Pretty sad tactics to promote your game dude. Not respected in the TA community.

For what it's worth, they are not both from the same person. Still, it seems to me that the game could draw attention to itself without shills. I'll pick it up and post impressions later today.

I eagerly await your impressions. I almost pulled an instabuy after seeing the demo video, but I decided to check impressions from TA members—real ones, preferably. Let us know.

Looks like it could be the next Death Rally. (EDIT: And, come to think of it, that's obviously what the devs intend with the name, which, I just have to say, is really trying too hard. I don't think it's coincidence that this has the same initials and has nearly synonymous name. Don't get me wrong, paying tribute to a great game that you really loved is great, just bring some originality to the mix. Anyway, enough of judging this book by the cover...and the intro video...)

I've passed the link to friends asking them to pass it on - I can't fault them for leaving good feedback, especially when they have actually played the game.

Though I could see how the community would see them as less credible opinions.

Thank you for the explanation. Sorry if my comment was a bit harsh. You game looks fun, always room for one more racer/death match on the market! May break down and try it on a 3gs. Thanks, will post if I do.

I've just started the game but I felt compelled to post a comment immediately. This game has, hands down, the most brilliant control customization screen I have ever seen on iOS. It's actually playable. You get to choose between the control and camera angles and see the results real time as your car makes it down the track. I am sure there are games that do something similar, but never in a dedicated control screen. To me that says something about how seriously the developer takes the platform and it definitely bodes well for the game as a whole.

I'll comment on gameplay later this afternoon, but at a quick glance the games seems pretty polished.
