SlotZ Racer 1.1.2 update is live

As the title says, the SlotZ Racer 1.1.2 update is out now. This fixes the music based stutter bug that Apple managed to drop into a few games and we've added a new Snow baseboard, scenery and an ice track type that's extra slippery (there's also new dirt scenery to match the dirt track and baseboard).

We're dropping the price to 99c/59p etc. for a short while soon, so if you've not got SlotZ yet, it might be worth a little wait to save a little bit of change

This game was selling for 4.99$ since march. Was it really selling at that price.

Looks interesting though. Thanx for heads up bout upcoming sale @ 99cents. Havent seen too many(actually any) devs announcing sale upfront like this. Would be worth picking up at that price I guess. That last pic does bring back some old memories though

for 99 cents it's definitely more than worth it, it was pretty fun until the long endurance racing championships :|

SlotZ was launched with a 99c sale and went straight to the top of the chart. After it had dropped off the top 100 our publishers put the price back up to its non sale price and it's been selling steadily.

The 99c sale lets a few more people have a go of the game and get involved in designing and sharing tracks but the advance warning of the drop should hopefully mean fewer people getting caught out and buying it just before the price dips.

I've had this game for a while, pretty much since it came out, and at first i really didn't like it. Then, there was a major update that changed a lot about the game. This is one of my favorite racing games. I got it when it was $0.99 when it first came out.

Definitely get this one, it is a lot of fun and has a lot of depth.

It's on the list. First priority is network multiplayer as that's more suited to the game.

Stunt track pieces take quite a bit of re-writing as they're not really much to do with slot car racing (they were a bit of a craze with toy companies in the 80s when they were trying to get slot cars to catch on in the US and a few bits like loops survived with the smaller scales). So I'm doing bits of work on stunt pieces, but they'll be ready when they're ready
