App description: ***WARNING: DUE TO AWESOME GRAPHICS, NEON DRIVE IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH IPAD 1, IPHONE 4 (& OLDER IPHONES) OR IPOD TOUCH 4TH GEN (& OLDER IPODS)***

Neon Drive is a slick retro-futuristic obstacle-dodging game that will make your brain melt. You've been warned.

From beautiful cityscapes and ocean roads to exploding enemy spaceships, Neon Drive has it all. It's inspired by the arcade games of the 80's, but set against a futuristic backdrop of glowing cyber-grid, all in silky-smooth retina graphics. Neon Drive brings you 7 amazing levels, adding up to hours of enjoyment. Each level features multiple twists and perspective changes, keeping you on your toes (err, wheels) throughout the gameplay.

Neon Drive will put your mad dodging skills to a real test, mercilessly pushing the limits of your reaction time and short-term memory to avoid obstacles and dead-ends. Seriously, this game is wicked; just when you think you've got the hang of it, it turns the table on you.

Each level of the game comes with a custom-made retro music track, perfectly tuned and in sync with the roadblocks and your enemies. This allows you to just tap the beat, unplug, and zen out. Watch the landscape seamlessly morph from one scene to the next, in a ballet of colors and shapes, and let your inner driver take the wheel. You've got this.

Features:
* 7 levels, hundreds of obstacles, and infinite challenge
* Breathtakingly beautiful and silky-smooth retina graphics
* Custom-made retro synth music, perfectly in sync with the obstacles
* Super addictive (Neon Drivers Anonymous support group available upon request ;-))
* Includes exploding enemy spaceships, seriously!
* If you can finish all 7 levels, we hereby certify you have superhuman abilities!

Fantastically 80s.

I wish the game was portrait mode, and level themes were randomly generated for more replay ability. Though I get the whole obstacles timed with the music thing

At least the video checkpoints allow a continue now and then because starting over after going so far can be quite frustrating.

But music and graphics are great.

Thanks for comments Vectorarchitect! Yes, if it were randomly generated, it would be a different experience. A level editor might be a better feature for replayability?

Is anyone else unable to download the game? I keep trying and trying and trying. Unable to download.

I just downloaded two others so there's no issue on my end that I can tell.

This looks promising. '80's style arcade games are sewn into my heart.
