Default Project Downforce - "Mode7" Racer

Hello friends,

I'm pleased to announce the release of Project Downforce, a Super Nintendo "Mode 7" inspired retro racer for iPhone and iPad.

The game has been well received on Android and is now available to iOS owners. No ads, no in-app purchases. WYSIWYG

Features:
* 3 game modes - GP, Single Race and Time Trial
* 7 racetracks from around the globe, including Hawaii, New Zealand and Japan
* Adjustable difficulty level
* Stomping retro soundtrack by NecroPolo
* Ultra-fluid Super Nintendo Mode 7 styled tracks with massive, smooth-scaling roadside objects
* 7 relentless AI opponents out for the gold trophy
* Retro, digital control pad touch controls

You can find the game here:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/project-downforce/id512805943?mt=8

And here are a few screenies:













Enjoy!

Widescreen support for iPhone/Touch 5th gen? Would certainly help with fingers blocking the game display.

Yup, trying upload the update as we speak but I'm having issues... VERY ANNOYING ISSUES. Think I'll need to contact Apple... oh if only it were as simple as releasing games for Android... LOL.

Fun, but needs adjustable controls (too high on iPad), gamecenter, and a way to restart or quit to the main menu from pause.

love this game! Controls aren't too high for me on iPad, but I suppose an option to move them would be nice. I am only 15 mins in playing grand prix mode, but I can tell already I'm going to spend quite a lot of time with this little gem. Slick graphics, liquid smooth, controls just like I'd expect a SNES racer to control, beautiful colors, nice music... total package is great! Look forward to more from these devs in the future, even if it's just a re-skinned version of this with new tracks. Well done!

Thanks for your input. I purposely made the controls higher on the screen for the tablet versions as I find it uncomfortable holding the bottom of the device. This way it sits better in your hands, but obviously not everyone feels the same way! Will look into adding adjustable controls in an update

As for GameCenter, that is a definite possibility (will look into how to do it - haven't spent much time looking into social networking APIs, shouldn't be too hard) and I'm already working on the pause menu. Cheers!

Glad you like it! I was thinking of doing a sequel with HD cartoony gfx. We'll see ;-)

Only had a quick scoot but enjoyed it. Reminds me of Pole Position and Pit Stop. Game Centre would be great and some kind of multiplayer would be kool in the future. Nice touch comtrols too (only tried on the phone so far).
