I've been playing this for a day or so now. It's not a bad little racer. It's got the usual F2P trimmings. Dual currency, random car collecting, Single use power-ups, SOME timers. One good thing is there are no timers on races, so play till your hearts content. Timers are (so far) on upgrading your vehicle or waiting for a special part.

There's a big focus on car collecting in this one. There are tons of vehicles to get. There are different kinds of races to open up also. Standard races, elimination, deathmatch, ect.

Playing on the iPhone 6, the game runs pretty smooth. The tracks look good, but the cars seem kind of I dunno, blurry to me?

It's definitely worth a download if you have a PH account. My only gripe about the game right now is that I just feel like I've played the game before....many times. I'm kind of burned out on the whole "tabletop" racing theme with paper clips and pencils for borders and big pieces of fruit on the table. It's been done so many times. That's just me though.

Oh, for sure! Most games try to replicate the original Micro Machines. It's just been done so many times since then.

Please come out in the US soon!

Chillingo has had another beta out for a few months- Ignite Nitro Drift.

I'm wondering when this will have a worldwide release.

If I did something wrong earlier sorry didn't know it was frowned upon. See requests in these forums all the time. What I meant to say earlier is excited for this game is all.

Is there any news on the release? I thought this was going to come out before the App Store freeze on Tuesday.

Pay to win

First off: I'm loving the gameplay once I'm in it, but the "usual f2p trimmings" are more "let's see how far we can stick our finger up their behinds without them protesting". It's pretty disgusting.

I'm a bit pissed off, I've just been playing V3 last week with my mates, and it's just really showing it's teeth, so this update is needed.

I just want to (and do) pay for my games (once!), but not the €100,- of "lifetime customer value" or however much they calculated.
The prices of the car pieces and stat-unlocks get a lot higher per tier, but I'm not seeing the rewards going up at the same speed.

What prompted me to share this with you is the crash-race-re-entry mechanic. In certain game modes (battle, elimination) when you crash, you can watch the race-action but need to wait a few seconds before entering the game again. You can skip this waiting for a "mere 5 gems" which is straight up pay to win. Or more: pay to not lose.

Again, I have pages(!) of premium games on my ios devices, so I'm putting my money where my mouth is. I *do* know the gaming industry (I'm in it) so I know a studio needs to make a living, and f2p is currently the way to go. But the meta-game around a game (holy shit, opening a pack of virtual toy car parts is fun! - for real! is just as important as the game itself, and this specific, icky version is created by a very smart, very cynical person in an excel sheet, designed to extract the maximum amount of money, at just the right balance of annoyance tolerance and the bright, shiny moments of joy this game does give.

I know, I must be old, I just want to pay €10 or €15 and be happy about it.

Didn't the people at the new dungeon keeper release a proper version after the shameful stuff they put out there last year?

TLR:
Chillingo,Codemasters, please remove the timers.
And the pay-for-faster-re-entry, that's just a cheap shot.
You're a gaming company, and supposed to make fun things that we can then pay an honest price for.
Targeting "whales" like this while having the rest grind for the needed gems is sickening.
Don't suck out the soul of games with greedy, shifty stuff like this.

*EDIT*
Looking at it from different angles, I just disagree with the monetisation scheme, the rather slow pace of free unlocks and the insane price one'd have to pay for the whole thing. My discontent stems mainly from inner conflict between *wanting* to pay, but for something else than is on offer.

*EDIT2*Wow!, the game just got updated, and one of it's few redeeming factors got removed: game mode selection (it's now behind a pay wall). They *really* want to annoy you into spending more gems, they're doubling down on the suck factor... I found this gem of a quote (pun intended) on the chillingo website, without so much as a hint of self conciousness: "We’re no fan of pay-to-win trickery that ultimately spoils the integrity of gameplay" (here: http://www.chillingo.com/developers/...ion-analytics/ ).....
