I know this might not be a popular idea but...

What about adding 4 or 5 cars in packages sold as IAPs? That way you can keep the same initial cost but provide the option for more cars for people who want them. The same could apply to selling additional tracks and events.

We're based in Melbourne, so we'd probably do the current Australian F1 track if we planned on doing an Aussie track :P
I know Mount Panorama would be pretty popular with Aussie players too.

After updating, the intro video plays each time I launch the game, even though I have it switched off in options. Not a big deal but I just thought I'd let you guys know.

Have you tried just toggling the switch on and off, or turning it on, relaunchin the game, and then turning it off, just in case the option needs to be reset. Might work, might not

Yeah, I've tried all these things as well as rebooting, but it still keeps playing the video each time I launch the game. It never did that before with previous versions (if you had 'skip intro' checked in settings) it would just launch straight into the main menu screen.

I have updated, but not had a chance to try it yet. I shall check it out as soon as.

Any chance of making an iPhone bluetooth controller app?
It would be great to control such an awesome game on my TV wirelessly.

Downloaded and played v 1.10 with iPad 2, HDMI out and HD TV. Looks great. No more black boarders as announced. Good framerate. One little freeze of half a second or so during 60 min gameplay. Sound: Impressive stereo on TV. iPad stays mute as soon as the TV is connected. Still not finding any pause button in this game. Once the replay stopped after the first round of three and switched to demo mode (one car alone).

Good update. But the cars in Asphalt 6 are still looking better, shinier, more mirror effects and more particles.

There isn't a pause button as such, but if you click anywhere at the top left of the screen, it should bring up the pause menu.
