App description: Get your boat ready and be the first to cross the finish line! In Paper Boat Race you'll be able to blow into the microphone to make your boat go faster and win!

Just blow at the boat (with the microphone) and the boat will sail! Alternatively, you can sail by pressing a button on the screen. In this mode, if you blow into the mic, your boat will get a great speed boost! This is great for passing your opponents!

To guide your paper boat along the course in the swimming pool, you'll use the accelerometer. Be precise, pass between the flags and avoid hitting the obstacles!

In Paper Boat Race you'll be able to compete in 4 championships with 5 races each. The difficulty level will gradually increase in each circuit!

Leaderboards and achievements are provided by OpenFeint! You can compare your score with your friends and publish your achievements on Twitter and Facebook!

I have wanted to pick up this game but I am still a little confused. I know it can be played on a touch but how does the speed burst work if you don't have a microphone? Is there a button for it or do you not get the speed burst? If you don't get a speed burst it seems like your times will be slower?

Yeah I have had the same question since it was announced. The only button is to move the boat but it seems you miss out on the speed boost that the microphone produces. So I have chalked this up to an iphone only game but maybe I am missing the obvious.

Cool. If you can try it without the mic as well and see how much difference the boost makes.

ok checked it out and it works with the mic on the headphones. I unplugged the headphones and started again and it says:

Mic not detected! for a full experience connect it and restart the game.

Nothing in the options to set it to touch or shake to get the boost!

(COUGH)(COUGH) shake or touch to boost(COUGH)(COUGH) Hint to Developer!

Great game though, seems to be fun and looks good!

Thanks. That is what I was afraid of. I am guessing they would get a lot more sales if they added a boost button.
