iRacing from PlayMesh

It seems that PlayMesh has released an iMafia clone around racing....
As with iMafia this one is free.

Is it just me, or are the stats from the screenshots the EXACT SAME STATS as those from iMafia (and in fact, every blimmin' mafia game, whether on App Store, Facebook, MySpace or online!)????????

Seems to me that they're willing to just slap on some fresh paint onto the same bodywork and hope punters will buy the reward packs. At least they could have tried to make things a little more interesting by varying the details a little!!!!

Yeah, it's exactly the same game. I'm currently thinking about how to spend the 12 honor points, which I got for completing the tutorial...
But its THE chance to get a head start and get as much properties as possible to get into the leaderboards. At least for me.
I don't think I can get enough properties in iMafia to compete with them up in the leaderboards....

Good luck for when other players buy their way to success over you

This game is iMafia they just made a few things different. Some of the cars even have the same graphics, pretty sloppy if you ask me.

Makes sense though. They want to leverage their existing assets, so they're just making an iMafia game that might appeal to those who don't dig the whole mafia theme. It could definitely use a better paint job though -- menus and things that fit better with the new theme and don't look so much like they were recycled wholesale from iMafia. I know they were, but the idea is to avoid making that fact quite so obvious.

Still, gives me something else to periodically spend a few minutes on when I run out of turns in iMafia.

Not if he bought PlayMesh points used them to increase his energy. More energy = more missions = more experience.
