I REALLY wish that Solipskier got a widescreen update.... It's still on my phone though.

But thank you for the heads up! I had never even heard of this until I saw your post. So... YAY! I've only played 2 games so far, but I'm really enjoying it.

Kudos to your posting in the main thread, rich_952000! I had never even heard of this very special sale until I saw your post. More of such precious findings please. Thx in advance. BTW may I ask where you got that info?

You're welcome synthie but the point goes to richie. I did just copy & paste his idea to this subforum.

Panic train is a tiny hidden gem. That's for sure, isn't it? First when I read the name I thought it would be some railroad game (and I'm a big rr fanatic) but I was more than surprised that it's NOT a typical rr game BUT even better maybe!

Ever seen an auto endless runner/platformer of this quality without IAPs (and without ads and without any other marketing crap) for free?

Can't await to BUY it (when the sale is over)/gift it to someone. Support that dev!

I guess I "watch" listed this game when it first released. I feel a bit awful that I didn't pay for this game...it's that fun

Yeah I think I might have to gift this to a couple people after the sale. I'm finding it quite a bit more difficult than I thought it would be. In a good way. Every death has been my fault or lack of skill, never anything to do with the game. The prices for karts do seem a bit high, but it's a game I can see myself putting quite a bit of time in to over the next couple months, and they aren't incredibly high... Definitely seem attainable.

Anyway... Yup. Great stuff

^Yep, great runner! Totally reminds me of Bumpy Road the way you maneuver your kart. Get it while it's hot!

Just a note, I've rated this game five stars here on TA and am drafting an iTunes review that reflects said five stars. This is such an underrated, polished game, it deserves more recognition.
