Typical disappointments by the developers..
This was a great game when I first started playing but, as every game does, it has come to the point where you have to make purchases in order to continue playing enjoyably. I don't have a problem paying $ for a well developed/fun game but I do have a problem when the gameplay declines because I don't make a purchase.. Every race was well designed and had decent physics for a tablet racing game and then suddenly the other racers became significantly 'smarter' and aggressive and the physics of the game went to trash. In what world does a little dune buggy completely blow me off the track when I am driving a full sized truck?! In the early races you could be aggressive and knock racers around and edge em off the track but now I can't even rear end someone without it knocking ME off of the track.. This is a letdown because I enjoyed the game so much that I wanted to buy the full version but these practices do not make me confident in giving the developers my $... Also the tilt steering is kind of crappy and the arrows for the on screen steering are WAAAY too small and too low on the screen... The game also lacks depth/creative sides...let us add our own touch, at LEAST paint our cars..add a map or something and let us see other racers and how far ahead/behind we are..
In a word, frustrating
The controls are intuitive yet the brake function does not work properly, you press it and it disengages the gas (even if you are holding it) so you have to disengage the gas, then re-engage the gas.
Most importantly is the loss of traction when going down hills. The AI never seem to have to slow down for hills, unfair. Further, the AI get to reset their vehicles ahead of where they crashed while you reset BEHIND where you crashed.
Lastly, I HATE the catch-up feature that applies to both you and the AI. Remove it or at least give the option to turn it off.
This would be a 1 star review, but the game is free. Just seems like the game was released too early, needs an update badly. The core of this game is strong, however.
Free racing fun
5 stars because it's free and enjoyable. Would be 3-4 stars if it cost money. The graphics lack polish, and the whole thing feels slightly low-budget, but I like the post-apocalyptic track theme, and the car physics and handling are solid. Another huge plus is the game doesn't require IAP's - as long as you're ok with owning 1 car at a time. If you like this game, I'd try 2XL's rally racing game; it's like this one on turbo with better graphics and a copilot (albeit slightly less realistic physics), for just $.99.
