Turbo Sprint! A 2D Top Down Racer!

Hello all!

I'd like to announce my new app, which is a top-down racer for iOS (iPad and iPhone) called Turbo Sprint!

You can download it from the app store here, it's free (ad funded at the moment) : http://bit.ly/U7hhl9

Anyway, I hope you take the time to download it - and please let me know what you think.

Somehow missed this game previously (Think because it was in ipad games)

Just downloaded it, its free at the moment. Nice Super Sprint style game, played a few tracks, played well, decent power-up's, looks good. Love Super Sprint style games and i'll be playing this one a fair bit

Nice game, very fun to play. What i dislike are the advertisments after each game.

Yes, I understand that the adverts can be a bit off-putting, it's a bit of an experiment with RevMob really, so I may remove them in a couple of days and charge the lowest price tier, but I can't see it making too much of a profit either way tbh I've a few 5 star ratings but unless people start noticing the game, I suspect it's going to sink into the App Store abyss. Such is the life of an indie eh?

Would rather buy this game than free with adverts. Much better to charge outright i think, my friend released an app which was free and 69p to unlock levels, had over 1000 downloads but 3 people paid !

This is a really nice micro machines type racer, happy to buy it. Crazy how games like this dont do better, i see some of the 'highest revenue' apps out there and its crazy as they seem so dire.

Yes, I may go paid as an experiment as I've never really been comfortable with the adverts. Wish me luck! Oh, and thanks for the compliments on the game, much appreciated

Better be quick ..

lol - get in quick, I've just this very moment turned it into a 'paid' app ($0.99/0.69) and turned the ads off ... I hope you like it!
