Wow such an amazing game. What you basically do is draw the best line throughout the track and see if you can beat the opponents racing line. seems you can play up to three players as a "hot seat" mode where each person draws their own line and compete for the fastest time.

So far the amount of tracks is a lot and hopefully they will continue adding more or if possible let us create tracks. I wish there was a way to customize the car some how even if it's a fresh coat of paint but this is a new release so we will never know.

For people that enjoyed games like Flight Control this is a nice diversion if you are into racing. Mind you everything is automatic after you draw the line so if you wanted to control the vehicles once the race starts that is a no go.

Ran the game on 3.0 with a Iphone 3GS

I just bought the game and spent some time with it. It's rather fun and I definetly got my buck's worth. The game reminds me of Firemint's two games, having the Flight Control-ish art style and addictive gameplay and Real Racing because it has cars and you really need to slow down during the corners otherwise you'll skid and lose speed in Draw Race. (I know it's silly to compare a 9.99 game to a 0.99 game but I just thought I'd share my views) It also reminds me of TaxiDrive, because the draw path style is the same. I agree with k1ite that they should add a track building mode.

I did five races already and I enjoy the game a lot. You need a lot more than a fine line to win the race. The speed with which you are drawing the line determines the speed of your car, hence the way it handles itself in turns and lines.

For example, drawing a very fast line on a straight path and not slowing down in the following turn will cause the car to drift a lot in the turn. You'll lose a lot of time this way so you need clean lines and careful speed adjustments.

There is a national and a global leader board which is always a nice incentive to play again and again and get the best time.

really nice surprise for 0.79 euros and there's a ton of content that could be add in future updates if the dev follows this game up.

that's cool, but do you control the gas and braking at all? I think that would add some element of skill like Slotz Racing.
