Default Lynx Lunar Racer [universal]

Hey guys,
Just want to do a shout out for a game we've just launched. It's a free to play side-view racer with simple controls and quite a lot to explore.

Trailer here:

Hope you enjoy!

First impressions:

I really like the graphical style of this one. Sorta reminds me of a cross between WipEout and that early ios dual stick cave flyer that had you rescue astronauts named after your contacts (I can't remember what it was called).

The gameplay is nothing like those, however. It's more like those floaty bike games, but with an even floaty-er lunar theme. I quite like it.

One gripe is that the rotating doesn't feel intuitive to me.. I'd rather hit + to dip the nose. Maybe as an option? Also, shouldn't the ghost reflect your best run rather than your last?

Other than that it's really well done! Will there ever be iCloud support? : )

Well I am surprised to be honest I was expecting another rubbish sponsored side scrolling game filled with adverts for the product and pretty bad gameplay just attached on.
But instead this is actually a good game, I like these motorbike style side scrollers and play a lot of them and this is IMO a good game, sure it's free to play so you'll probably have to grind to unlock stuff or pay to unlock stuff faster but the actual gameplay is pretty cool, looks nice and handles well.glad I came across this thread.

Thanks for the positive comments! We worked hard on this game and we're glad it shows.

This was an interesting subject for us, as a few members of the team were polarized on that orientation and which way it should be, but in the end we all gelled with the current scheme and decided just to keep it simple.

We're exploring the possibility of reviewing and extending the ghost feature in a future update - perhaps in a way that allows you to compete against ghosts of others from around the world, but we're still at the experimentation stage on that one.

Thanks for the input

Lynx? Published by Unilever? Is this a game about deodorant?

I downloaded this game this morning and was pleasantly surprised with it. It's definitely a hidden gem. I keep going back to it every time I get a chance. It's really fun if your into side scroller vehicle games like me. Definitely pick this one up and give it a try!
