Super Block Kart (Looking for Beta Testers)

Hey gamefans!

We're working on a new Go-Kart Racing game for iOS and Android. The general concept is Minecraft Meets Mario Kart. There's lots of fun stuff in this game. We have lots of characters, lots of upgradable karts, powerups, special attacks and tons of fun stuff in each level. We're in the Alpha stage currently and the game is basically functional and we're adding features. We'd really like you guys to provide some feedback and play the game and give us your thoughts. We'll be collecting testflight emails in preparation for testing in a few weeks. If this looks fun and you'd like to try it and are a testflight user, please shoot us a PM.

Also, if you have feedback or have a good idea for the game. Please let us know. We plan on packing the game full of background animations, characters and lots of funny stuff. Want to hit chickens with your Kart? Want to drive through the whitehouse? Let us know!

We want YOU to play our game!

I like the concept. In the past these type of racers have been successful but it uselessly comes down to the controls. What type of controls are they?

GamerDog, You just need to sign up for Testflight and get the app on your iphone or ipad.

TriggyWiggy, rest assured, the controls should be no problem. We'll have two options. One is digital controls, with a left button, right button, a gas, brake and powerup button. This has worked very well in some of our other racing games and I feel it's very precise. We'll also have a tilt steering option with a gas, brake and powerup button. I'm considering an option with auto accelerate as well. Our biggest challenge is getting the physics to feel fun without being too difficult for younger players.

I will be keeping an eye on this one looks to have very good potential. How will the karts go? In other words can u unlock them or do you have to buy them outright and the most important question is there more than 3 tracks?

Great questions,

Most of the carts and characters can be bought with regular coins but there may be a few special items that can be bought with gems. The game will be free to play with incentivized videos to earn in game items. We will have IAPs in the game but the monetization won't be agressive. We're going to start out with 6 tracks which we plan to upgrade to 9 on the first big content update.

Our current plans for the character system is that you can mix and match characters and karts. Characters add a unique ability to the race while Karts can be upgraded. We'd like to really expand the number of characters in the lineup.

Thanks guys, we have quite a few adds to the testflight yesterday but I could still use another dozen or so. If you want to be in the program, just shoot me a PM with your testflight email. It's that easy.

We've got another week and a half to go and still a few more beta spots open. We have some big name companies testing this out now.
