Get your international squirrel racing team to the top in this exciting race management sim. Run your up-tree urban training facility, build up your team, equip and train them. Then its off to the racetracks in their private jet. From jungles to futuristic cities and streets to deserts, the squirrels face a barrage of opponents.

Watch the race progress from above with live-generated race commentary and, as team manager, dive in with mini-game boosts and power-ups when its time to overtake. Spend your winnings wisely. But watch out - squirrels are unpredictable and love the high life.

We ramped up the financial elements by adding a whole banking system - use it to get rich or wreak havoc!

The Kongregate version of International Racing Squirrels is the original game and will give you an idea of the gameplay. Please rate it if you like it.

The iPad version has had about 1 year more development - there are lots more new features and many more coming, including new scenarios, shop items and race tracks.

Enjoy them both!

Thanks for showing up! I'll tell you one thing, the game has me intrigued. I noticed this game when it came out, but had no iPad at the time. Given it's quirky nature, light strategic gameplay, and production values, I'm surprised it didn't garner more attention.

I didn't spend much time playing the flash version because I've lost my computer glasses. A few questions...
Are there iaps? I see the game uses currency but it didn't appear to be purchasable in the flash version (many flash games now sell in-app currency). I would prefer the answer to be no.
Will you continue to maintain the paid version (at least leaving it available in the store) when you release the ad-supported one?
Is it possible to issue commands while the game is paused?

Thank you for your time.
