F1 Challenge(Codemasters)

Hi Folks this is out on the Aust. Store. Sorry not sure how to show the actual app info. I have played a couple of challenges and I like a lot. Totally different experience to the previous F1 games, but really very good. It's a top down player, where you are set various challenges. So far a lot more polish than the past F1 games from the Codies.

I'm not an F1 fan, but I'm a fan of Top Down Racers and since it's Codemasters, I'll probably pick it up. It looks pretty cool. It's just the controls I'm worried about. I know it's been asked before, but anybody try it yet?

It seems like it's been made from the leftovers from their Formula 1 web browser game that got shut down before it exited beta. Controls look identical to that along with the assets.

I'm a huge F1 fan, have been for decades.

But knowing Code'masters' (ironic name) record for making bugged/flawed F1 games, I'll Skip this one.

Last iOS game I bought: 6/1/15

Yes, I am pretty sure it's the web browser game. I was in the beta for that and it was a lot of fun. They just spoiled it by going all free-to-play and putting a lot of management stuff that didn't work as well. The racing part by itself was a lot of fun, trickier and more demanding than you would think. I have no idea how the app plays, but the browser game was good.

I dislike it greatly when an app listing doesn't show any full screen shots of the gameplay.

This gamer runs on premium games.

Could have been a great game if they had integrated a career mode with the 2013 data. But so it's a no buy for me.
