Customer Reviews

Right idea, could be even better

This is a really fun F1 top-down arcade racer, easy to play with a touch screen but with enough skill/track layout awareness needed to set good times for each circuit. Would be even better if (1) it had more official tracks (there's only 5), (2) split times, and challenges based on splits (eg make up 10 secs in 3 laps), (3) scenarios where you defend from slower cars, not just catch up to cars on front, (4) some 2012-specific context for each scenario (eg reenactments of pivotal championship moments). Lots of scope to build this into a really compelling F1 racer!

Best racing game out!!!

Great graphics and I really enjoy the controls, which to me is a very intuitive way to control the car on a mobile device.

Very innovative, but in-app purchase too expensive

Once you have purchased the game you would assume that was it. However, there are several expensive purchases to be made for the full game to reveal itself.
The interface is great though
