Interface Designers clearly not familiar with iPhone standards
The menus and controls are not consistent with Apple UI standards. When there is a menu system, buttons are supposed to have a different graphic when holding down, and selecting a menu item is supposed to occur on REALEASE ie "TouchUpInside" in Apple Dev speak. This games menu system has no button select graphics and performs the actions on the "TouchDownInside" event, making it extremely easy to hit the wrong button by mistake and you can't cancel a press by dragging away off the button. The fact that the menu is also TINY does not help. Apple should have rejected this app until they got their menu interface in line with the published UI guidelines.
there are a lot of better racers out there, but for being a free racing game I think this one is pretty good. the interface has it quirks, but courses are fun, the pick-ups are a nice feature, and the leaderboard imakes it kind of addictive. I will be #1!
Its a nice little racing game. I liked how it explained how the cars work, and controls were easy.
The speeds are realistic, cruising speed is 50 mph if you don't ram the walls.
I think a few more tracks would be ideal, and customization woild be cool. An update is all it needs.
