Surprising, this one looked like a great candidate for universal binary.

Immediately bought. But can you test whether or not AA is viable, perhaps iPad 2-only?

It should have been a universal upgrade.

Had the developer added some iPad-specific tracks, new power-ups and maybe a disc design shop (for mapping your own texture to your disc), it might have been worth the upcharge.

This looks like the identical game w/ hi-res graphics.

Could someone please add a screenshot from the zoomed view with the whole track? Iím interested in if you can better see your opponents and the driving direction than in the iPhone-version.

Here's a screenshot from my iPad 1.

And, for comparison, the same game/map on my iPhone 3GS.

I would say that the iPad version of the game is 100% easier to read, however, it is still really lacking. My disc is the red disc in the lower left corner. The blue disc is slightly behind me around the bend. The blue disc is still hard to see compared to the oil slicks on the map. I'd love to see the ability to move freely around the map. I'd also like to be able to switch to the camera view from each of the discs in play.

We should post that line in every single iPhone game app that isn't universal in the iPhone board. We'll be copy and pasting a ton.

I don't mind in this case that it's a separate app. The game is cheap on the iPhone and worth it, and I'm OK with giving them a little more money once I get my iPad 2. The 14th of April seems so far away, though....
