Mister Bumblebee Racing Experience


This game looked very promising. But the game play seems really slow. Doesn't really feel like you are racing. Just kind of buzzing around very slowly. No sense of speed. Controls are kind of weird.

Accel/dec button on left, Up and down button on right. Accelerometer control for left and right. Controls that would work better perhaps for something 3d adventure game, but not a racing game.

I don't recommend it.

I don't get it! Why didn't they just use accelerometer control for left/right AND up/down, with just the buttons on the left for acc/brake?
Cro Mag Rally did this, and it was one of the first games (for those who haven't played it, there is an underwater Atlantis level where you control a sub).

EDIT: I have asked the developers this question. I post if I get a reply.
