This game is pretty much a racing only version of Earn to Die. See how far you get, upgrade your car, you'll get further, upgrade your car etc. Personally I really like that kind of gameplay loop. Not a big fan of the weird graphics filter. Also the drunken camera needs fixing, sometimes your car isn't even on the screen anymore.

Cool little game. Love the theme and the graphics and it's a lot of fun to play. The doubler IAP is a bit steep for a racing/drifting game... I thought about getting it, but am not sold out that it's worth the bang for the bucks. Now, if the $5 IAP was for access to significant additional content such as expansions, then, I'd give it a nod. For a racing game, though...ehhhh....it's hard sell for me...

Fun game!
You don't steer directly, but you manage your turns and drift with acceleration and brake buttons.
Love the style. Cool cars, which you can customize the stats and the look.
Drive as far as you can, crash, upgrade, repeat.

Super fun so far!

I really prefer this game over Mega Drift, which I still do play once in a while.
Definitely liking the vintage looking cars, great art style and really fun gameplay. Seems you can go off the edge.

Discovered that keeping my finger on the gas, and using brake at just the right time when entering a corner really helps.

Fun little racer, it reminds me a bit of the Dreamcast racer Speeddevils now that game I played a lot in the year 2000.

Floating camera is extremely frustrating. I crash more because the camera is moving from side to side, all over the place.

More frustrating than fun for my tasted.

I dig it. While not even close to revolutionary or award-winning, it certainly is a refreshing take on a driving game. The visual style's nice, too.
