Hi guys! Thanks very much for your comments: for us is very important to make the best and improved the game now in work!

Some info about your comment:

the game gfx is very real retro: we have created it in pixel art, like the old game. Different to RetroRacing.
Our base ispiration is not RetroRacing, but the old F1 Dream (Capcom Coinop): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uD_BDc8OOlM

the control in the pics are one of the possible configuration in the options. In this new pic you can see on of the other control configuration.

F1 Retro have a very huge different tournament, some standard like race, time attack, overtake ecc... or mad like Chicke Crush and other...

Thanks again for your comments!

Massy

This reminds me of a Namco(I think) arcade game where 4 people could drive at once. If someone got offscreen they would teleport back up near leaders to keep everyone on the one screen. Also the intellivision racing game with better graphics.

Hmmm, those screenshots with the graphics (and control buttons) do look very similar to Retro Racing.

I mean the left/right/accelerate are practically the same ?

(Does look good though !)

Hmm, I thought it resembled something much older but seeing that Retro Racing App it does look like a straight clone.
Clone might be being a bit kind in describing the resemblance....

I don't see it.
All I can see is they copied the controls

Obviously since I replied first before ever knowing of the previous game I like the look of it, but.....

The cars are real close. I realize it is a class of cars, but maybe would have been better to do for nascar, truck, british touring car or muscle cars instead just to avoid looking like a clone?

Aside from controls, look at the car place timer and place/total cars info at top of screen, it is almost identical save for a pause button.

I do like the fact they have gradient corners instead of polygonal. And it does seem to be a very nice graphical face lift from retro racing, but you have to admit there are some "similarities".

I think if you asked 100 people with no knowledge of either game if they looked similar, at least half are saying yes.

Maybe its meant to be an homage to that game and the tracks are named after the retro racing designers as a tip of the cap.
