App description: RC Mini Racers is a fast paced and explosive racing game with 22 remote controlled mini cars, lots of missiles and mines, turbos for an extra boost as well as great hard rock music. One car is free and another 21 cars can be unlocked within the game. The car pimp shop lets you customize you RC car by changing the color, the wheels and the antenna.

The game features 32 tracks separated in circuit races (round tracks with 5 laps) and sprint races (A to B races, no rules, as fast as possible). Beside that theres a coin racing mode where you can explore the level and collect coins for the in-game store.

RC Mini Racers has a great mixture of tracks where you need your weapons to win the race by shooting and bombing your opponents from the track but also fantastic high speed tracks where it is mostly down to great driving skills to win the race. Find out yourself which tracks you like most!

For nearly every action during a race you get in-game cash rewarded. You get cash for crashing other cars, explosions caused by missiles and mines that affect other cars, for jumping over epic ramps and getting airtime cash, for driving best laps and best race times as well as for winning the top spot ranks in a race. Use that in-game cash to unlock other tracks or convert them to coins for use in the car pimp shop.

All tracks can be raced in 4 difficulty modes ranging from easy to medium over to hard and finally the insane mode. Hours of fun guaranteed until you unlocked all tracks in all difficulty modes! To see how you driving skills develop, compare your Sprint track times against your friends best lap times in the GameCenter leaderboards.

The game offers beside the one free car 21 more cars which can be purchased via In App Purchases. Furthermore, you can buy virtual coins inside the game which can be used to customize each unlocked car. You can also collect those coins in the coins racing mode, but if you can't wait until you collected enough coins, you can shortcut the path and get them right in the in-game In App Purchase store. The first race cup in Sprint and Circuit races is free to ride and 24 more tracks are available as In App Purchase.

Please note the game requires an iPhone 4S or newer or an iPad 2 or newer.

My impressions from the other thread:

So it looks like a great game wrapped in an IAP nightmare. I'm disappointed.

You can earn money in the game, then convert that money into game coins, which can be used to buy new cars. Or to paint your car. Or to buy new tracks. Wait, I have to pay to paint my car?

I'm lost as to how the money system works in this game. There is a store in the main menu where you can buy coins at a rate of 320/$.99. You can, of course, spend much more.

There is another store where you can buy your cars and tracks. There is only one unlocked car, every other car needs to be purchased (and purchased only as far as I can tell) one at a time for a buck each.

Then there is yet another "store" where you can convert dollars to coins, and vice versa. I don't know why you need to convert coins and, quite frankly, I don't give a $#!%. I don't want to figure it out.

This looks like a really good game, but I will not play it any longer because I am so frustrated in trying to figure out all these different stores, and bla bla bla. It will take forever to earn enough cash through grinding.

The game itself is pretty good. Suggestions:
- steering sensitivity adjustment is needed. The cars are way too unresponsive by default. Maybe a non accelerometer option?
- cars seem kind of slow. Maybe they get quicker and faster later on.
- rethink your IAP setup. I went from excited to delete when I saw that mess.

I think the developer is giving away too little gameplay before expecting people to start paying. The first few tracks are very short and slow, and the AI cars just slam you if you're anywhere near them. I'd need to see more of the game before I started buying stuff. However, if it were a 5 dollar one-time fee, I might go for it and take the chance.

I would pay good money to buy this entire game as a one time purchase. But you want me to pay $1 for every individual car? The IAP ruins it for me, sorry. Just my opinion.
