App description: THE BEST DOWN N DIRTY RACER YOU EVER SAW! Made to maximize the Retina Display, the state-of-the-art visuals will make your eyes bug out as you skid, slip, and slide in traditional top-down racing style. Challenge your buddies in online multiplayer, and get ready to go. Its the dirt-road racing game yall been waiting for on iPhone & iPod touch!

LOOK WHAT THEYRE SAYIN
one of the coolest looking top-down racing games I've ever played. (Eli Hoddap, Touch Arcade)

The first thing that strikes home is the sheer loveliness of the graphics From sparkling streams to large wooden churches looming up into the camera at the side of the worn dirt roads (Will Wilson, Pocket Gamer)

VISUAL QUALITY THATLL MAKE YOU SAY, OOOWEEE!
Designed from the get-go to with eye-popping graphic quality, the visual details will really make you feel like youre rolling in the mud deep in the heart of Dixie. And get a load of how Reckless Racing looks with the Retina Display. Have mercy!

RACING FOR THE RECKLESS
Dirt track or asphalt, truck or rally car take your choice and then take it to the limit. Learn the basics as a beginner and choose from a variety of driving controls. Get better with each race and move up through Bronze, Silver, and Gold difficulty levels.

CHOOSE YOUR VEHICLE AND TEST YOUR SKILLS
Adapt your race skills and push it across 5 amazingly detailed tracks. Race against rigs controlled by some outrageous in-game characters like Otis and Bubba! Unlock the reverse tracks and race em again!

BETTER THAN THE REST?
With online multiplayer, Reckless Racing gives you the chance to show the world what you can do behind the wheel. Post your best times on online leaderboards and trade ghost races with players from all over the world. Chat functionality is also built in!

RACE IN 3 DIFFERENT MODES

Nobody said it wasn't smooth. It just isn't as smooth as when you play online, oddly.

For me online is a little less smooth, but I tend to blame that on my slow broadband (512kbps in day, 1MBPS in nights)

But then I only played on ipad, so dont really know if there is some issue/bug in the iphone version.

I would have thought the same - online would be less smooth and/or jerkier because of network issues. Blows my mind that it's the opposite though.

Oh well. The game's as good as dead for me anyways (after having played it for about 3-4 hours already). :/

If you look at the credits of EA iPhone games you will see this isn't true at all.

I cant believe all the teeth gnashing and whining over the perceived shortcomings of a three dollar game. You kids are too funny.

The trouble is, once you start down that avenue of thought, the logical conclusion is that making any comment about any relatively inexpensive leisure activity is pointless. We don't want to be going there, do we? Didn't think so.

is it possible to listen to our music while playing?

Great price on release ($2.99). I want the iPad version for sure. It will be an instant buy for me. Any more expensive and I would have *tried* to resist it. $6+ can buy a lot of entertainment on the ipad/iphone.

Just waiting on the US release.

The best feature of this game to me is the openness of the game. I love the idea of falling off a cliff and watching it crash down the cliff.
