Yeah, some impressions would be nice.
The app description states that there are 6 different arenas, a colour picker for your car, realistic physics, customisable cars and multiple game modes.

Personally, I'm waiting for a good GT motorcycle racing game. As I've always said, four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul.

I hate when I have to do this: probably wait on this to see if updates materialize.

The game isn't awful, but even being a barren genre on the store, the other similar game Auto Mangle on the store is better. It was devved last year, but Phart Games kept updating and it is still a relevant game.

I'm sure this game will provide me with $.99 worth of gaming. But I'm not as critical as most on TA The first strike I have against the game is the Unity engine. IMO unless it's an advanced dev, unity isn't the best. And it shows in this game. There's no rear view! I spent 80% of my first two derbies being flipped over helplessly. I tried adjusting the cars suspension to no avail. The win/lose aspect is a points set up. It doesn't tell me why I lost just "you lose" and "330 points"?.

The cars do have crash damage which is "realtime" for the most part. Decent arena selection/variety.

There is just no direction. No unlockables, one game mode, overall as someone mentioned earlier; the game feels unfinished. On my iPhone so I'll elaborate more later.
