looks pretty nifty for the price although, as we all know, it will be highly dependant on how good the controls are.

im guessing this is not an official license of the age old epyx summer games from years gone by, loved those my keyboard didnt tho.

"iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad compatible.
Select "low or medium detail level" in option menu for third generation and earlier devices specially in "2 players split screen" mode."

Sadly, it won't load on my iphone 3G (4.2.1). Dl'ed, reboot device, start app, crash at load screen (x3), delete app, reinstall, reboot device, start app, crash at load screen (x3).

I was fully expecting to switch to low detail but the menu screen will not load. I checked my device settings since some apps have settings there. Nope.

Just read a review on the app store:

You can choose any 1 of the 30 countries on offer.
Controls are two finger tapping, slider left and righ, or disc to turn.
Using speed, rythym, timing or a combination of the three.

(GC = BUNGLEZ) (OF = farmersuitical) (Plus+ = bungle747) (Crystal = bunglez)

I review apps and games frequently in the UK app store, and here on the forums. If you want anything reviewed, just ask.

Picked this up and there is some good and some bad.

The bad, the character models and animations are laughable. It is like they photo shopped a persons head and then attached it to a block with arms and legs. The animation is just odd, the way the character runs is really poorly done.

The good, there is a two player split screen mode which does work and this way you can laugh at the animations with a friend. Also, I really like the control options as there are three set ups with my favorite being strategic, since I don't like pounding on the iPad.

At .99 it is hard to fault this too much since I am sure I will get some laughs out of it.

Not bad for that price. Graphics are so so but like the different ways you can race, eg tap two keys quickly, use a slider or hit numbered buttons in order

For the price it's pretty good

agree with prev poster about the animations, cracks me up!

game has pretty good potential but falls short on game design. each event is single mode only, no events to compete in (decathlon for instance) so no real aim bar beating your own high scores. online leader board may add some longevity but needs a more track n field style approach to be awesome.

not bad for 99 tho.

The iPod Touch 3G that comes with 8GB is 2nd gen, has the hardware of the iPod Touch 2G; i dont know why apple created this huge misunderstanding, but this is what it is... a second generation device with 3G on its name, a shame.
