Been waiting for this for a while now, though I thought it was coming out much later in the year. One of the few times I'm happy to buy through judging a book by it's cover.

Me too

Played 4 tracks so far, with 2 of the 3 ships it seems are available.
It's pretty tricky to get the curves right but I like that, definitely 100% skill based, you really got to learn the subtleties of the handling to make it round smoothly. The middle ship is really slippery

Looks really nice in motion, I love the stylised graphics. Tilt controls work well, precise around the centre but you can really fling it quickly if you need to get round the hairpins.

Will post more imps when I play some more into it....

I assume tilt is the only steering method? No alternate controls?

Thank you all! You people rock! The game is quite tricky indeed, but making top laps with faster ships give you quite satisfying feeling.

There are some Promo Codes available on the dedicated forum.

Jazzaplot, thanks a lot for promo codes. As I wrote in the promo codes thread I was lucky enough to grab one and promised to post some impressions after I give it a try so here I am. First of all, I was browsing through new releases this morning and putting some of games to my wishlist and subscribing to interesting threads as always. I usually wait couple of hours for gameplay videos or first impressions and start purchasing around lunch. Well, I was pretty sure to buy this one today because it looks just great from the screenshots. I mean, the whole presentation is eye-catching. The game's really polished, everything looks amazing. I love the tutorial, even the credits, it's really original and interesting. For the gameplay itself, I have to admit I'm not a fan of tilt controls. But in this game it just feels natural somehow. With touch options for boost and accelerate there's probably no space for touch steering and even if there was it wouldn't feel as natural as it feels now I guess. It's so smooth (the description claims it runs in 60 fps and I believe it), I'm really impressed. Interesting thing is to have separate leaderboards for 3 different ships but I guess it just fair as it is. I didn't try the second ship yet because I don't feel I'm "skilled" already as it says in the description but after I'll unlock all the easy tracks I'll try. Well, long story short, this game's amazing. I highly recommend to try, it's a lot of fun. I'll definitely buy a copy as a gift for someone just to support the developer. This game deserves an attention, I hope for a good reviews in incoming days, featured on AppStore and wish you good luck with the sales. Well done!
