Interesting. The trailer and screen shots remind my a ton of the old Blizzard's old SNES game Rock n' Roll Racing. Here's hoping the IAP don't cripple the fun. I'll be checking it out later tonight.

Okay, this one's out of nowhere for me. Obviously, it looks lovely in the footage; I'm similarly hoping that there's a simple and affordable way to play this without consumable IAP or effectively needing to buy things to survive.

Yeah, it is mostly an iPad game right now. It works pretty well on iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, but we will submit an iPhone update today that optimizes couple of things, so it will be even better.
We're working on Touch versions, so I guess it will work pretty fine there after another update (in about about a week, I think).

Speed Kills gets a v.1.2 update! The main thing about this is a reworked control scheme, according to the customers comments. We introduced sensitivity adjustments and fixed some of the bugs to be sure that the controls will be smooth and accessible on the mobile devices.

What's New in Version 1.2:
- Improved controls.
- Controls sensitivity option added to Settings menu.
- Fixed action tap zones for the iPhones.
- Respawn issues fixed.
- Controls-related bugs fixed.
- Other minor bugs fixed.

More feedback will be very appreciated!
