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?

This game went by another name originally. Prime time rush by the devs that made the excellent Daytona rush. I'm liking this game already. Feels very similar but a higher difficulty. Good job invictus

Unlocked the canyon. The falling rock animations are not attractive. Very out of place looking. 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.

I really want to like this game. Just idk. Seems to lack the polish of Daytona rush. Make a few runs and then I explicitly the game will have a terrible drop in frame rate and force me to close app and restart to return it to it original frame rate. Collision detection seems a little off. Overall graphic quality and smoothness just isn't where Daytona rush is. Even the menu system seems laggy when I choose options. Really hope this can be cleaned up. I know this game got pushed back and delayed hell it doesn't even have invictus name on it. It really does seem to show a troubled production and creation Process.
Too bad

Please update this game. Clean up the graphics and fix this random frame drop. Core gameplay is sweet.

Sound just went out in the middle of a run. This game has some issues. Could be really good. Looks like you guys gave up on it and just pushed it out.

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
