App description: Combining elements of "F-Zero" and "Guitar Hero", RHYTHM RACER is the fastest full 3D racing experience you'll have on the iPhone or Touch, and an amazing musical experience too! Keep the music playing and rack up points by hitting as many Power Spheres and jumps as you can. If you miss it, you'll know it. Recover quick and you'll still have a chance to get a streak and post a high score. The Pickup Placement System keeps it interesting by making sure that no two races are ever the same. RHYTHM RACER features original songs written and performed by Parry Gripp of Nerf Herder. Download it, play it, and see what the hype is all about.

Features:
- Adrenalin-fueled racing combined with killer interactive music!
- Full integration with OpenFeint.
- Global leader boards - see how you fare against everyone.
- Social leader boards - see how you fare against your friends.
- Includes one racing track with the ability to purchase more tracks.
- Easy controls: Just tilt the phone left and right to steer and pickup the power spheres.
- Adjust the tilt sensitivity to match your playing style.

Developer Notes:

Greetings from AvatarLabs, developer of RHYTHM RACER. THANK YOU to the tens of thousands of people who have downloaded and are playing everyday during our first weeks in the app store! Thanks also to the people who've taken time to give us feedback (support@avatarlabs.com or www.facebook.com/avatarlabs). We depend on that to make RHYTHM RACER the best it can be. We're working on an update that will address issues some of you are having, and we'll have more music and race maps soon. Easier gameplay options are on the way, too. For those who have posted amazing high scores in Open Feint, we are in awe! Way to go! Thanks for playing and helping us bring the thrill of racing and music together!

Give it a shot, we hope you'll love RHYTHM RACER as much as we do!

Tried it out. Pretty cool. Its kinda hard to steer while trying to get the notes though. Only 1 stage, you have to pay $.99 for another stage. It also has OF 2.4

OMG. Double Rainbow!

Looks like a cool game. I'm not a fan of TTR, Guitar Hero and such, but looks like a great idea.

i agree with the steering being hard, but i just found in options you can adjust the sensitivity.

yeah, was a interesting idea. i think it needs a few more maps ( even if you have to pay .99 for the game to start) before asking to buy more maps. but thats just me. good luck with your game

Too bad the current SDK still does not allow the access to your iPod library otherwise it will be a full blown Audiosurf...
