Thanks for posting this INSM...I wanted to start a thread on this game this morning but don't know how...

I've played this a little bit today, and I must say very reminiscent of Reckless Racing. It's a very solid effort from a one man dev, who according to the "about" bit on the menu, spent 6 months developing, with tweaks and more tracks hopefully on the way.

The only issue I have so far is that the controls are a little touchy (no pun intended), sometimes they don't seem to register my touch, ending with either no turning or no acceleration until I have tapped a couple of times.

Gameplay is solid if a little light on for content,and the pace is slower than reckless racing, but having to dodge falling rocks, planes landing, trains crossing etc definitely adds to the game.

Overall I would say a great game from an indie dev working on his own, hopefully we'll see some updates to finesse the controls and add content. I am pretty happy with the purchase.

just my thoughts, cheers.

Thanks for posting Hard Racing

Hi, i'm david linan, Hard Racing's developer and i'm very happy for this posting. Thanks to ImNoSuperMan and GPS for tou review and comments.

I'm preparing some bug fixes, and hopefully add a couple more circuits in less than a month, in addition to improving all the interface and gameplay.
I made ​​a great effort to develop but certainly worth it.
thanks you once again.

Regards,
David

Hi Chriser,
Actually (version 1.0) not support GameCenter and Multiplayer.
In next updates I like to include two new circuits, improvements and Gamecenter. The multiplayer option will take me longer time.

I'm partial to top down racers and the screen shots do look good. Glad to see the dev responding and to hear the controls are will be worked out. A definite buy after. Yea, and a video would be great too.

This is not a great video but shows the graphics and that.The games ok but no real sense of speed and i'm always having to hit the gas button more than i should as i always seem to grind to a halt far too often,or maybe it's cos i suck
