*** REVIEWS of the previous version of the game ***

This game is pretty amazing! I love how fast paced it can be, and the graphics are beautiful. Controls are pretty solid, tracks are varied and interesting. I definitely plan on playing this much more! Highly recommended. By XxChrystalWatersxX (App Store USA)

Use the tilt controls feels very responsive and the best I have seen in games that use this feature. By rumdumdum (App Store UK)

Usually it is the hubby who likes this genre more than I, but.... I am converted! I really am enjoying it so far. But so far... there are different levels and a bonus level which can be considered more like 'free play.' You can also earn better ships. Nice graphics. By Lavender (from Touch Arcade Forums)

Controls are spot on. I mean 100% pure control and nothing but skill kinda controls. the game is also fantastic as well, with strangely attractive menus and electro beats...graphics on the other hand don't look super at first, but then to realize it moves at 500mph. and smoother than silk on my ipod 5th, ya I'll take that.

Had this on the 3ds and it was lots of fun. Got rid of my 3ds so gonna pick this up again for my retina mini.

It all hinges on the tilt controls for me. Gonna need to see a gameplay vid.

^Urgh ! I'm glad it has touch screen controls

Just wish the video would show some gameplay instead of glossy intros

Is the game a tunnel runner with obstacles to avoid in the tunnels? Unsure based on the video if Boost 2 or other course runners might be more fun.

I dont like virtual joysticks. Is there a touch control with arrows?

Have played this for a few hours now and I can say this game is really good. The tilt controls work perfectly for me, and the sense of speed is amazing. I would say this game is at least on par with Repulze Phase One. Some people will probably complain about the lack of opponents, but personally I'm fine with this (although an optional ghost mode might be nice).

My friend, you have seen this incident, based on sworn testimony. Can you prove that it didn't happen?
