TailSpin is a fast paced, racing simulation designed around a realistic physics model. At Barn*Star Studios, we love racing games, but we get bored very quickly with campy arcade-style racers. TailSpin breaks out of this mold by providing realistic controls and physics, allowing you to *feel* like you're really at the controls. You'll find yourself playing for hours just to beat your best times...
Hours and hours of gameplay including:
- Over 90 different events
- Compete against the clock or up to 5 opponents
Compete in and win multiple race series, time trial events and endurance events to unlock all all of the different racers. Increasing levels of difficulty and an adaptive AI ensure hours of challenging gameplay.
TailSpin makes full use of the touchscreen and the accelerometer including analog throttle sensor to allow and unprecedented level of control.
TailSpin is a independently developed game. No suits or ties were involved in its creation and all profits go directly to feeding starving artists.

Only OK graphics and sound but this game is incredibly addictive and a bargain at 2.99. The controls are big but this makes them easy to hit. Starts slow but as you progress and start unlocking vehicles, it gets fast and much more difficult. Very different from NFS or the other sci-fi racers. Gets more play time than any of those on my iPad...
Don't get me wrong, the steering in this game is top quality (for my tastes, no sliding around like LGR), but the controls need improvement. The accelerator meter kills it, and you never know what the power ups do, except the boost. Either add auto acceleration option, or the review stays 3.5. Also, soundtrack would be nice.
Well, they did a good job hyping it up in their description, and like a fool, I fell for it. This game is garbage. The graphics are unbelievably poor, the framerate is iffy, the sound effects are on par with old 8-bit games, and the controls are totally inadequate. The buttons are very cumbersome to reach, and despite the real estate of the iPad, they take up half the screen.
In short, avoid this game like the plague. I wish I did.
