Lemme know what you think, my little girl loves top gear and anything to do with the stig. Will dload for her if you think the iaps are not too aggressive, if it was for me I wouldn't care but i don't like putting stuff that pushes iaps too much on my daughters device.

The game crashes at the loading screen. There are already 23 1star reviews on the german appstore and all say that it crashes on their devices

Having played plenty of freemium games, I'd say this one is far less pushy. From what I can tell so far, you can buy just about all the items using gold won in the game and iApps are there to buy you larger amounts of gold and gears (which are used to revive your player).

There are a few issues with the game's frame-rate dropping every now and then but overall I'm enjoying it. If your daughter likes top gear, she's probably going to enjoy all the references. And like I said, I don't think iApps are too pushy

I have to admit the framerate dropped a lot at some point (though restarting the game fixed that), but for me it hasn't been crashing on start up so far

Yea I was actually wondering if it was developed by the same team, because of how similar it is

Anyway hope they add more items to buy soon, making the necessary gold for everything was a pretty easy task (especially since I won a whopping 50k from one of those refrigerators)

LOL, someone needs to look up the definition of "sidescrolling".
