Use your grappling hook to slingshot around corners in this fast paced arcade style racer. Hone your skills by learning on the tutorial tracks, then blast out of the snow onto more complex tracks against other racers. Race around a selection of tracks in stunning day and night settings.
Career mode features 80 races with different objectives and settings. Take part in a simple straight race to the top spot on the podium.

What's New in Version 184.108.40.206
Small fixes and UI improvements
I like cell phone games to be quick and easy, so I can pick up and play whenever I find a few seconds. This game is. The controls are simple (one button please!) the races last seconds, but there is enough skill involved to keep me playing levels repeatedly to get those cogs in one lap, or to shave off milliseconds to get a better rating. I also like the race variants. Simple race, pick up cogs, time trial, or survival where a machine takes out the other racers one by one. Some may be put off by the simplicity, I myself welcome it!
These comments are about the Career mode; I haven't tried Tournament yet. I was surprised at how fun such a simple game mechanic could be! The races are varied; sometimes you are competing with other racers, sometimes you are against the clock, and other times you are picking up cogs as you make your way around the track. So far the gameplay seems perfectly smooth. The steampunk theme is great, too.
Game is fantastic! Recommendation to make it better: having a "leaderboard" locally for your heat lap and course times on your phone. I usually play when I don't have internet connection, so I only play tournament mode. After each race there should be a top 10 laps and total time to see where you placed all time on your phone. That would be awesome!
