Light Riders?

Hey guys,

Just wanted to know what is going on with Light Riders? I should have been here by now.

Would it be possible to see a video of the game in action or at least a full feature set list?

Thanks!

As far as I followed the other thread, they are still waiting for Apple to finish the review process and put it into the store.

A gameplay video would awesome.

I must say, that I am *really* disappointed with LightBike (http://www.taptoplay.de/2009/02/25/lightbike/ [German]). It feels wrong and the chosen camera perspective just breaks everything. LightRiders might fix this with their blue theme and the 2D top down view and the upcoming 3D view with different camera perspective finally sounds like it would transfer the look and feel of the movie in a good way.

The free GLTron offers a really really great look and feel with different camera angels, perspectives etc. I hope, that LightRiders will be similar.

I played the free version of LightBikes and didn't think it was all that bad.

The build I have of LightRiders only has the top down camera which scales back as you increase your speed. It plays really well and I prefer it over LightBikes.

It should be today. Looking forward, we have a ton of features and updates planned. There will be an immediate update submitted to bring internet multiplayer. We are then focusing on all kinds of new level, bike, and game play enhancements we think all of you will love. We are committed to keeping our games fresh.

We have been working very hard on our multiplayer platform. We are working very hard to get smooth results over EDGE. We will keep you guys posted on our testing.
