Limited in-game sounds at the moment so you can enjoy your own music tracks. We experimented with additional sound effects but found them distracting to the gameplay.

Price point is 99c. Looking forward to everyones feedback!

It's available on the US store now:

my first impressions i like the menus easy to read and the gameplay is fun. the controls are a little awkward and i would like to see a gas petal and a break on the right side and maybe a 2 directional dpad for the tilt on the left with a jump button on the left as well. the level editor is very easy built a level in 5min no problem and i really like the option to give all levels a thumbs up or down even the included courses. in game sound would be the biggest feature to implement IMO even just a engine sound would be great. i still enjoy this game and think it is well worth $.99 and my complaints are in no way a deal breaker. if you like jelly car, jet car stunts (in 2d forum) and iblast-moki level sharing this is an easy choice to purchase this.

This looks pretty cool. Does the car handle well? It looks a little floaty in the video.

Game Impressions

My $0.99 cents:

Nice game, needs a little bit of work, but considering it has a level editor and it's super easy to share/download levels this one is a must-have for physics game fans.

Things that need to be fixed:

- The rotate controls are backwards! Maybe I'm wrong, but the right rotate should rotate clockwise, and the left one counter-clockwise. An option to tilt-to-rotate (ala Jelly Car) would be much appreciated.

- There does not appear to be any multitouch - you can't rotate and accelerate at the same time.

- The game is upside down for iPod Touch owners (not a big deal as there is very little sound to speak of)

- It would be nice if "tap the car to jump" was changed to "tap somewhere on the screen besides the buttons to jump" so I'm not covering up what I'm doing (some of these levels have a lot of jumps!

- The car's wheels overlap the terrain a bit, not a huge deal, but I think it would look better if it didn't.

- More sound would be nice, at least a "boing" when you make your car jump.

OK this sounds like a big negative list, but if you like things like Jelly Car, you will want this for a buck - the game can only get better, and there are already a dozen or so levels uploaded by people. You can rate the levels, so you can avoid the stinkers!

Go get it!
