Just tried it. Not impressed. Most important thing for racing game is smooth frame rate and it hasn't got one even on ipad 4.

Seems there is no AI either, just online realtime racing so it will come to a point there are no opponents when this vanishes from visibility. Although I was put in a 6 player race within a minute, so it's got some users currently it seems.

Shame coz I like e idea. If it was as fast as Wipeout it might be nice but now it just hurts your eyes and hard to go where you want seriously its like 20 FPS max (guessing).

Default Troubleshooting help?

Hi Baracus,

Could you help us out with some more information? You should not have had any framerate problems at all on the Ipad 4!

What version of the game are you playing? 1.1 or 1.1.1 - quick way to tell is certain characters are locked out of the front end of 1.1.1.

What version of the IOS are your running?
Lots of other apps open?
What track were you playing?
Did you have a default racer or custom character?

Can you send an email to info@fathom-i.com or reply to this post?

If there is no human racers present or less than 6 racers - then they will automatically fill with AI for the other spaces in the last 10 seconds of the race. You can tell and AI because it will just have the character name (e.g. Suma) as the name.

My gamecenter name is bojames if you want to friend me to play together.

Thanks for your feedback and help!
