No IAP, CHECK
Smallish download size, CHECK
Ad free? According to the app listing there aren't any so CHECK

Downloading now. Thanks for the heads up on this premium looking game. If I like it I'll take the time to write a refiew on the AppStore for te dev as well as post bak if there's anything fishy.

I hate to say it but yeah the quality of gameplay on this one isn't very high. First the car is dead center of the screen and the world moves around it. So at best you have half the screen length wise to see what's coming and short wise have maybe half of that to work with. There are no turn indicators (you know like wha a rally driver's co-driver gives out) or even an overhead map. Tracks also appear to be random. Couple this with having to finish all the races in a series with no way to save until its all over makes this difficult to recommend, it's c grade gameplay. A few times I crashed with trees blocking the view of my car which made getting back on track extra complicated as the car seems to do funky stuff when it touches a wall.

As many bad things as I said, I did unlock the next race level and will give it another shot. It is ad / IAP / bs free... It just needs a little tweaking before I'd consider it great.

This only came out a couple of weeks ago (when i bought it as usual) it's a cool game, could do with some tweaks but I didn't regret buying it as I played through the whole game. Well worth grabbing for nothing.

I'd second that tho I thought I only paid 99 for it and not 2.99. It's not perfect by any stretch but it's good fun for a while and a no brainer for free
