I was gonna say "i like how this looks" while watching the video, until i got to the "watch an ad to extend 6 seconds?" part. That's basically an ad in the middle of one play session. Sadly, i'll have to skip this.

I've been waiting all week for this one. Bummer to here about the ad thing, but I'll try it out anyways and leave some imps.

Kind of off topic:
I was just scrolling through the Chillingo section looking for this game and it was like a stroll through Memory Lane. Chillingo has made so many good games since the AppStore opened up. I remember when they were releasing like a game or two a week and just about every game was great! I dont know if the whole F2P thing is what changed all that, but I really miss it.

Oh dear

Was looking forward to this until I saw the game running. It looks like it plays like a three-lane endless runner and having ads for time extension... Sigh! I will scream my protest by not even downloading this.

So, I'm giving this a go right now and..........it's actually not too bad! A little more "casual" than I originally expected, but I'm still digging it. It's got a cool one touch control scheme with some light tilting action. Lots of cars that you can buy and upgrade, I think it's 4 different areas to run on. Supports GameCenter and Facebook for leaderboards. I will say that I'm sick of seeing sink or swim's face though. Lol. He's crushing me on the leaderboards.

Definitely worth a try!

UPDATE: I just notice that there is an IAP to remove ads for a buck and with this only having one currency and no timers, that would make this a premium game. Pretty cool because this is actually a decent game.

That's good news! After reading EP's post about the ads interrupting you mid-game I was totally turned off to this. I was bummed because it actually looks really cool. I'll certainly give this a try when it's released in the US.

It's not really an ad that pops up mid game really. It's just when time runs out and your within so many feet of the finish line, a thing will pop up and ask if you want to watch an ad to ad an extra 6 seconds on the clock. It only happens when your super close to the finish line and time runs out. Other than that, it's just the usual ad here and there in between races. I'm really happy with how this was made. They will definitly get my dollar once it's released stateside. I've been going back to this game all day.

So far in my first couple of minutes, this is almost unplayable on my Gen 5 touch.. Choppy, freezes,and crashes... What I've seen looks ok, but I haven't actually been able to do a full run yet

I had it downloaded on both my iPod touch 5th gen and my iPhone 5 (both running iOS 8) and played them side by side for comparison. Of course the iphone 5 ran smoother and seem to load faster, but I was still able to play on the iPod without any major issues. It studdered a few here and there, but nothing really bad. I do know that before I fired the game up, I did a quick reset. I tend to do that before I start every game for the first time anymore, but I played it on my iPod for quite awhile and besides the occasional hiccup, it ran ok. Hope this helps GPS! I've been having a lot of fun with this one so far.
