From their Twitter:
LightBikes release this week or next! But, do we keep the name? Or change it? Contact us to give us your perspective.

Ride fast, take chances... and then ride even faster...

The point of LightBikes is to outlast the other opponents. The longer you survive, the more points you will get.

As you ride your LightBike it will leave an Energy Trail behind it that neither you nor your opponents can pass. You will need to out maneuver your opponents while making sure you don't end up in a wall.

Using our proprietary game career tracking system, Light Bikes will allow players to challenge up to 4 players over Wi-Fi, track there career, track their wins, track their losses, and hold titles based on location.

Yes, this should remind you of a scene in a popular 80's movie... hmmmm...

You can also choose your bike color on Solo mode.

LightBike beat us to the punch, but we will have a better over all polished product compared to their product. You guys are going to love what is coming in our 1.1 update.

Our version is built on a 3D engine also, but we have an overhead camera. Our next version will have camera choices. It will also be coming with a lot of features and additions, ones I know our friends and Pankaku have not thought of Competition is good! :-D

P.S. There is a lite version coming too.

I will post a video and screen shots tomorrow so you guys can see what is coming. The stuff on our site is old

I really like LightBike because that's what they are. Using the Tron name is out. Atari would have a phit. Grid Racer sounds kinda neat too.

unless they at least start it out at 99 cents they won't stand a chance, not with lightbike being out first and the number one payed app.
