Place your bets game

Very nice horse racing game. You cant control anything, just place your bets and watch. All results are random.

Thanks, gunslinger! I'm Brian, one of the developers here at Parallel LLC, creator of the Place Your Bets game ($0.99). This is actually my first post here, though I've been a Touch Arcade member and reader for some time now.

I hope you're enjoying the game! It's our first iPhone project, so we're pretty excited about its launch. Please feel free send us any feedback you may have at contact [at] thisisparallel.com.

Here's a quick video for others reading this thread. As gunslinger mentioned, PYB is more of a "test your luck" betting game, like slot machines, where you gamble and see what happens. Horse odds do effect the outcome of each race as well as the amount you earn if your horse wins. Try and see how high you can get your balance and take risks with low odd horses for even bigger profits.

We have a few other games in the works - one which should be done within the next month or two. I'll be sure to share it with Touch Arcade when the time comes.

Thanks again, and please, any feedback would be much appreciated!

I love that craft set style you've got going on there. Reminds me of LittleBigPlanet, taking a whole new style of art direction. You got my 59p.
