Well I took a chance and downloaded this, because I wasn't sure if an internet connection would be required. I was pleasantly surprised that it did not require one to start/play the game. And so far, I am thoroughly enjoying this racing/endless runner game.

Fun little game with gorgeous visuals with great detail (ie: the slipstream effect behind a vehicle, the blurry vision during a nitro/boost) along with great controls (tap or swipe). The lottery (spin wheel) has been very fair so far. Also its a nice extra that you change the color of the car, along with a matte, gloss, metal, etc. finish.

I am probably missing something, but I did find it a bit hard to earn big money, upgrades and new cars are very expensive. But I do know that I will definitely be spending a lot more time playing this one and trying to earn some cash. Looks like there is plenty to unlock and lots of challenges to complete.

Since I don't have wi-fi, this is my progress so far.

Hi there, Rafał from Vivid Games here

Happy to hear you like Highway Getaway I think if you feel like playing more, there will be another reason too, as we have a big tournament planned in which you can win in-game stuff and... remote controlled cars!... because why not

BTW - what device are you playing on?

Yeah, this is game is a co-production: Vivid Games and Invictus

Can I ask what is with the targets appearing on vehicles from time to time?
Sure, the target is on money trucks. Hit the money truck and it will crash leaving a lot of cash on the street.

Like others, I want to like this. It's fun to play but the cash payout is cheap AF. As a result, there's little chance of progression IMO. Coin doubler would help \_(ツ)_/. Dev's loss

I'm collecting pieces of opinion from our social channels, support and store reviews and it doesn't seem to be many reports about the game lagging... could you tell me what device you have? I'd be interested to hear it as we're working on a patch that is going to iron out some things

And just to point out, the game is a co-production between Vivid Games and Invictus. So Invictus guys worked on it and we did as well.

I'd also like to take a chance to advertise a score of the week contest we're holding on our fanpage: https://facebook.com/highwaygetawayg...3652590115614/

Since I love the people over at Invictus and I love these types of games I'm downloading now. I'll let you know if I see any frame rate drops and I'll let you know at what point it happens to help you narrow it down.

Let's do this!

We've heard the bug with the fuel truck appears to nag a small number of players and are actively looking into fixing this!

I have been enjoying this, but what I'm experiencing is the taps occasionally not registering, which of course causes a crash. This game is solid but just needs the tap (and I'll assume the swipe) mechanic to be fine tuned. I also have experienced the audio bug where all sound cuts out. I went to the pause menu and turned music and sound effects off and then back on but it didn't do anything. On iPhone 6+ running 10.0.2 if that helps. And as others have said, I'm a fan of Invictus' previous games (slmost all of them) and I could've sworn I've played a Vivid game before.

EDIT: And unfortunately I cannot buy the Rockvette for the 24 hour deal 🙁 I want to support the game but when I'm on that purchase screen it's a blank blur button that doesn't prompt sigining into the app store. I'd love to support this game too. Also, a cash/gem doubler would be really appreciated and I'm sure you guys/gals would really benefit from it

I've been playing. I like the game and I would consider a purchase but there are some issues.

The first and major issue is the game is not always registering my taps. I keep crashing as a result. It's NOT a lag issue. I have experienced ZERO lag issues and I've made it orettty far in the game.

The second is just a preference. I asked my friends at invictus and they actually listened to me on this one. Could you please add a coin/gem permanent doubler? I'd purchase this. I do not like buying currency to buy specials or getting into all of that. If some of those vehicles were sold for a set dollar price and discount and not for gems I would consider that as well to contribute. But for sure a currency and gen doublets I would purchase once the tap recognition issue is fixed.

I love the Daytona Rush influence. I really do. I love the upgrading and car color choices. It's a fun game.

Btw I'm using the IPhone 6s+ running IOS 10.2
