I agree, here it is only Tuesday and I'm already headlong into iOS game buying.

First, some for a mod, please.
There is a second thread around, but this one is opened by the Devs themselves (two people, right?), so...

Funny somehow that this old upcoming thread shows way more info and gameplay (not iphone only though).
http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=233216

Seeing the title a few minutes ago, i remembered that game, probably from the simple colorful, yet cool graphics and the interesting mix of cars, shooting and puzzling, i don't know. I was interested back then, so i took the plunge.

The presentation with the great menu soundtrack (though the fiddle might not please everybody, i guess) is slick and simple. And so are the levels, so far. But the real cool thing is, you can 4-way tilt your device to see much more of the current screen. I also like how the camera zooms in, if i don't drive, and out again when i get back in action.

I'm at level 8, and i still consider this to be an advanced tutorial, somehow. But i have to be honest, before i dive in further, i'm gonna play the whole tutorial a few times more. I've got to get used to the cars behaviour first. The turns and curves are...special, and i like it. Also, a better and faster handling with the magnet might pay out in the later and more complex levels, my guess.
While getting used is my personal thing, the controls are very responsive, no doubt. Good job.

Maybe me too later on, but i can see some people asking for a magnet-button somewhere in the right corner, customizable the best.

This is a very unique game in my books, and i'm looking forward to dive in further.

Oh, maybe a link helps to get the game:

Edit: always wondering...is it easier to release a game in a default foreign language, instead of having an option to let the players choose which one they prefer?

Qwertz555,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. You are right - we are 2 people.

The game tries to use your system language and if it is not supported the game uses the default: English.
We support English, Italian, Spanish, Russian, German.
I've just added "language switch" to our to do list

Holy shit. I'm on The Last Stand right now and I don't think I've played anything as unique as this in AGES. May I ask how many levels are in the game?

Eek, I didn't notice it was there in the description above.

But yeah...what the hell man!? You guys have a winner on your hands. A real, real winner. Like, one second I'm playing Micro Machines, the next it's a tower defense title and then out of nowhere I'm running away from some maniacal racer out to get me. I'm SUPER digging this game!

Oh, and that soundtrack is worth the $4 alone!

@Qwertz or casket or devs: What does GC entail? Cheevos, leaderboards or both?
