Bad Student Driver: Swing Ride by P1XL Games

We just released the trailer for Swing Ride, a sequel to Bad Student Driver.


Youtube link | Pop Up

Like the original (see my .sig for download link), it's a one-tap driving game, but this one has moose and cats (to avoid!) and the controls are now more straight-forward: tapping simply reverses the direction you're swerving. Some people loved the original control scheme (reversing swerve every 2 points) but others just couldn't get the hang of it.

It'll be released any day now, and will be free with ads. There's a 99 cent IAP to disable ads, and a couple other very optional "trainer" IAPs. Scores with trainers enabled are sent to a special leaderboard so the main leaderboard remains untainted.

If anyone wants a preview of the game before it goes live, here's some promo codes:

The Game Center features won't work until the game is officially released, I think.
