Looks great, but any idea what the IAP will be like? To unlock possibly?

The game include for free all the cars and all the tracks with no timers.

You can buy coins or sponsors if do you want to unlock new cars faster and of course if do you want help to the developers

It seems all the codes have been used and once again no one has posted that they have taken them. Thank you for sharing anyway.

This game looks great, will definitely give it a go when it is released.

took the second one. will give it a try later. the video is showing some great gameplay but im not sure how the controls work. combat racing is always a fun genre for me.

Beta Testing : Forgotten Memories: Alternate Realities, Sky Force 2014, Rush Rally 2

Alright some impressions.

It's actually a Mario kart racer in F1 style. The power ups are actually really annoying. I'll explain why after I tell you which ones are available.

You have boomerangs for hitting other drivers, as well as some gun. The loose tyre you can shoot in front is the same idea. You also have a shield and some sort of turbo. I also got shot with some gun that transforms you in a big ball of ice. The annoying thing is (for me), when you get hit by one of these powerups, you lose all control for more than a couple of seconds. It just feels too long. It should be like: Pow! "Ah damn I got hit" and you can race further after reset". But it's now like: Pow! ............ car still not controllable...... Ah now I can race again. Also it usually doesnt teleport you back when you are against the wall as result of the powerup. You then have to reverse by braking. Well, really annoying as you can never win anymore.

Enough about the powerups. The graphics itself are just like you see on the screenshots. But the track actually looks pretty good ingame (nice texture?). I don't like the user interface though. It's a bit too much basic. You can try to make it more simple: like buttons without the borders so that they are flat and simple. My opinion, but it will look more clean and less complex.

The driving itself is just like Mario kart. Very simple. The speed could be a bit higher but maby that comes with better cars.

Not sure what to tell more. And not sure if I can really recommend it. It's a good game but the annoying power ups (in it's current state) are destroying the fun. Also the user interface could be better. Maby not the feedback what you wanted but at least you can do something useful with it . I believe people can still get some fun out of this game

Thanks for the feedback.

Yes. Our intention was to create the best "Mario-kart" game possible for mobile devices and create it for free with totally optional in-App's, good graphics and include all the tracks and cars used in the MiniDrivers serie.

About power-ups: We've played tons of hours and we find them very well balanced. But of course that by definition you can find it annoying if you're hit by your opponents but... in other hand... it's very funny when you use this same power-ups hitting your opponents.

PS: If do you want one "teleport" to one secure place you can keep stopped 1 second and that's it!
