Played the first few races and seems good. Been looking for a new racing game and hoping this scratches that itch.

Straight forward racing game with power-ups a-la Mario Kart. When car gets damaged you lose pixels which is a creative twist.

Question... the $1.99 to remove the ads, will that also get rid of the "energy?"

App Store link was added but I think the forum's App Shopper linking wasn't loaded yet since the game is just released. I added an extra App Store badge to be sure!

That great to hear! The game is definitely inspired by Super Mario Kart, amongst many other combat based racing games and the blocks holding everything together certainly add a good twist to normal health bar.

Well yes, $1.99 is like an indirect way to support the development, ads are currently embedded within the game over screen flow in a non-instrusive manner but I think it certainly slipped our mind on energy. Generally, most players won't experience energy shortage since each race takes just one energy and the battery holds 10 energy at one go. Let me discuss this further with the lead developer! Thanks for bringing this up!

Awesome thanks and congrats on the launch. I haven't played enough to to see if the energy will impact my playtime, I just hate looking over my shoulder and feeling "pressure" that I'm limited. I'd definitely pay the $1.99 to support you guys if that also removes the energy. The way you implemented the ads are very unintrusive so well done there as well.

Looking forward to playing more and hope this does well.

Fun so far! Yes, remove energy clock after payment. Might be a deal breaker.

Enjoying this. Plays wel. Bought the IAP to get rid of ads and to help the devs. But yeah please also get rid of the energy timer specially for people who have bought the IAP

But a really nice game

Seem pretty unanimous on the energy timer! During the development test and many play through, we determined that average that each race track takes about 3 minutes to complete. With 10 energy out of the battery pack, that's approx 30 minutes worth of non-stop gameplay before you can run out. So that should be sufficient for most guys.

Will certainly review it again and see what we can do with the energy timer. Thanks to those who have purchased to support the game. Those non intrusive ads don't pay that well ❤️

The energy timer is a deal breaker for me too.

Enjoying the gameplay tremendously and would happily pay a premium to remove any ads and energy, but I wouldnt pay anything if it didnt get rid of the timer.

Awesome racing game!

Looks great and very fun game as I expected, But for me, it's bit a hardly controling a cart to win the race.
