The graphics look fantastic but hesitant to try it, due to mixed reviews/impressions on the non-CE version released last year.

Price seems pretty steep as well! Anyone up to toftt?

It's available for free on iOS, too – this version just comes with all the characters unlocked as well as a ton of currency. It looks great, and it seems to have plenty of depth (of the freemium variety, I guess), but the framerate on my iPhone 5 is terrible. Didn't make it past the first race, sadly.

I tried the free version and it sucks.

The frame rate is unbearable...and that's on an ipad 4, go figure.

With all the negativity, i'm really surprised how this managed to snag Pocketgamer's GotW?

Default Feedback

Hi Guys thanks for the comments about the game.

Framerate: The game is very playable on
Iphone 4S, 5, Ipod Touch 5, Ipad 2, 3, 4

On the Iphone 4 and Ipod Touch 4 you are going to see some drops to 20 fps.

colorsound if you can send me your UDID I can test flight you a build with debug information so you can help me find out what is wrong.

JBRUU - what screen clutter? We tried to keep the menu as minimalist as possible. In game you need the weapons on screen to fire. Please clarify.

If you guys find anything wrong with the game email me at Bugs@fathom-i.com - I would love to fix them and make sure that the gaming experience is as good as possible.

Thanks
Sean

This is simply not true. On an iPhone 5 I get consistently around 20 FPS and noticeable screen stutter. Not enjoyable by any measure.
