Customer Reviews

Very addictive

Still an amazing game, but doesn’t work with IOS 11. Protostar, please update!!!!!!!

Looks and plays great. I don't know what the bad reviews are talking about. Yes the controls are simple, but that's what makes the game so great. Maybe these reviewers just gave in too easily, it's not any easy game; some of the challenges are REALLY hard. But having hard challenges is what makes it fun, especially when you just miss the goal. It keeps you coming back.
The more you play the better the game gets. You can use different cars with different abilities, slower/ faster turning, based on the challenge. Can't wait for more tracks and challenges.

A Ruined Good Game

I feel sorry about this game and its makers. What's the most important part for a great sport game? Graphics? This game does a pretty good job on that.
But the bad handling of the control system and the difficulty brought by that just make this game feels...mediocre. There is only one available control system in the game --- tapping without any scales. Honestly, I suffered from trying to turn my car efficiently, and lost my interest soon. Some of the missions in the game are impossible to pass through with the bad handling & controlling.
I would cheer out if they can include a gravity controlling system in the next game vision, in order to make this game great.

Awesome Game!

I have so many games on my iPhone and iPad - but this is probably the only game I continuously play week after week. I really like the new tracks. The ice adds an extra challenge that makes it even more fun. Hope to see more tracks and cars soon. Great job Protostar!
