It looks decent.
I think they should add an overhead view to, with the numbers standing out.
I'd like to be able to switch between the two.

Made that a while ago for AquaGlobs .

This game does look kind of fun, but the price is kind of throwing me off. Has anybody bought it yet?

I really like the visuals on this. The cinematic cameras look like you're watching a true horse race. If I knew more about horse racing in general I'd def pick this one up.

It's fun. It is exactly what you see in the video, no more, no less. You make your wagers, then watch the race. Not deep, but for what it is, it's fun. I just kind of liked the idea of picking a horse(s) to root for, then watching them go. The biggest thing it's lacking IMO is a commentary. One of the biggest parts of watching a horse race is the commentator...you wouldn't even need the horse's names, just the number..."number 7 is making a push on the outside!" that kind of thing. Look at the video, and if you like it, get it...just don't expect any more than you see.

This game looks pretty nice, but how deep is it? For instance, how do you pick which horses to back? Is it just random luck or are you given some pointers such as form, jockey history, trainer, condition of the ground etc? How many jockeys, horses and races are in the game?

Also, is it possible to change how the odds are written? The 3.4, 5.6 etc format doesn't make any sense to me. In the UK we have horseracing odds like 10-1, 25-1 etc.
