Cool simple Outrun type game. Well worth the time to download.

Yeah I've had this one a while too. I think it's the closest thing to Outrun on iOS... right?

I wonder though, whats the difference between this version and Final Freeway Coin? Seems like it's just a republish but the regular version seems to get more positive feedback.

Also, locked in the license for Fractal Combat X to help the dev... though I probably should consider Final Freeway 2r since I enjoyed FF quite a bit.

Right. I had that feeling too.

Final Freeway and the sequel are both definite pickups for anyone who wants that old-school arcade racing fix.

FF Coin is the always free but ad-based version of FF, which is normaly at $0.99.
This promotion is aimed at getting Fractal Combat X noticed, since the press has been mostly ignoring it

Yeah, it goes without saying that if you liked FF, FF2 is a definite pick up, although it's not free.

Thanks for reporting the news

I haven't played this yet, but 8-Bit Rally felt like the closest thing to me so far: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/8-bit-rally/id441201921?mt=8

Judging by the reviews and what the game is about, it appears that its more of a Top Gear / Top Gear 2 (SNES) style racer. Similar graphics to Outrun (Like Top Gear), but it's more of a track racer with lots of competition. The reviews also make it sound like it's broken as far as ever having a chance of winning. I put a watch on it, if it goes free I'll give it a chance but I think if I want to buy something for an Outrun fix... Final Freeway 2r seems to be the best option since it has branching paths and other stuff similar to the Outrun series.

What I want on iOS is Sega to port over Outrun 2006 Coast to Coast. The PSP version was pretty great as were the console versions. I loved drifting through crazy turns in that game.

Fractal Combat & Fractal Combat X (by the same dev) are decent arena styled flight shooters (not sure what to compare to, maybe a really basic Star Wars Rogue Squadron mixed with some TopGun?). Both rely on tilt steering which so far has worked well for me. X has some IAP (which doesn't seem necessary) and more of a story behind it... but both games seem pretty decent. I don't understand the complaints on the controls since I was able to blast through the first two missions in FC without issue and FCX seemed the same.
