App description: Free until May 16. After that, this game will not be available from App Store.

I know this game is old. It was developed back in 2010 and never got updated. It does not support retina display or multitasking, or 4 inch screen that iPhone 5 and 5s have. Yes it's that old.

As I will close my developer account on May 16, I'm just giving this game for free. I am not sure how many will be interested, but thank you all who bought and tried my game.

Thank you!

Imagine driving your car on busy highway, going past the speed limit as you skillfully weave through traffic. Suddenly, cops appear on your tail, but you just keep going faster and faster. You realize the accelerator is stuck, and worst - you've got no brakes!

No Brake! is a fast-paced game of survival on the road. Players control a car driving on a busy highway with the accelerator stuck and with no brakes to slow down. While your speed constantly increases, you must avoid deadly collisions and determined cops who are out to get you. Do you have a fighting chance? Of course! Players have 3 special abilities Time Shift,Super Charge,and "Shock-wave" that could help them survive.

* Time Shift - This will let you drive normally while everything else becomes super-slow. Extremely useful if you encounter any oh-my-god-there-is-not-enough-time-to-get-there situation.

* Super Charge - Your car becomes super charged with speed and armor for a certain period of time. Just go and crash into any car! your car will destroy everything in its way.

* Shock-Wave - Your car will release a powerful shock-wave that pushes away cars surrounding the player. Useful for avoiding collisions and crashing cops.

Basic Instructions

* To drive your car to the left, just tap anywhere on the left half of game screen. Tapping on the right half of the screen will move your car to the right.

* If you directly hit another car, your car will crash and the game will end.

* You can push away smaller cars and cops at the cost of some HPs. When your HP gets too low, your car and the HP bar will be flashing.

* Cops will appear and chase you from time to time. Once they catch up to your speed, they will aggressively push your car. You can either lead them to crash or evade them.

* To use special skills, press the buttons on the dash.

* Or you can activate the skills with dragging gestures. Tap&drag upward anywhere on the game screen to use Super Charge, and downward to use Time Shift. Shock-wave can be activated by tapping on the player's car.

Just played a few games. I found the control a bit strange at first because I am used to "racer" where you keep your finger on the car to control it and in this game your touch the left and right side of the screen to make the car go left or right. I quickly got used to the control and it's very good. After a few minutes of play with the OF, power-ups, and nice control, it seems quite fun. I will try some more tomorrow. For .99, it's definitely worth a try. It's definitely got that retro feeling to it.

I did feel like I would like to control the speed, but then there would be no point to the super charge power-up.

I will have to play some more tomorrow to see if I get that "gota play one more time" feeling.


Edit: Just played some more and I am really liking this game. I Love leaderboards but I am not a big fan of achievements. This game uses achievements to allow you to earn points for upgrades which is a great idea and to me, a better and more motivating reason to go for the achievements. This should be done in more games.

Good job

I have played that one and did not keep it on my phone. If you try this one, you will find it is different in the control and features of the game. It does look similar I have to admit but if you give it a try, you will see the differences.

Game Impressions

Played this one last night and had a lot of fun with it.

First thing you need to keep in mind is that you tap the left/right halves of the road to move your car one lane left or right, more like a Game & Watch game than Racer or SpeedR (which have drag and tilt controls)

How does this one stand up?

Graphics are nice, and there is a decent sense of speed, especially when you hit the turbo button. There are sparks when you side swipe other cars, and you can ram cars while that turbo is going. You've also got a bullet-time type of mode which can help you through rough spots.

Taking out cops is a lot more fun than just keeping past a line in SpeedR. You can try to turbo into them, bash into them sideways, or just try to lose them in traffic. (You can turbo away from them as well, but it's not as fun!)

The main staying point is the upgrade system - as you earn points, you can spend them on improvements to your car, giving you a better and better chance at higher points (and more upgrades.) And of course there's OpenFeint so you can compare your scores/achievements with everybody else.

If you liked racing games like Racer, SpeedR (or even LeMans from Commodore 64) you're gonna like this game - it plays quite differently from the others, and is well worth the buck IMHO.

PS> One oddity, is that when you hit the turbo, the other cars actually speed up as well - when the turbo wears off, the cars that were on the screen with you when the turbo was on will all speed off!
