Preety good little racer
This is a really nice little game, if you ask me. F-zero fans will note some reminiscences of the snes game, and this is a plus.
I like the controls, the style and the music. Presentation is really good, reminds me of the first Top Gear, on snes. As you can see, this app has some serious references when it comes to retro racing.
Now, as much as I like the style, the music and the presentation, I think the developers should add a save feature. I can understand the game has only 7 tracks and is supposed to be a time waster, but it would be fine if we didn't have to start a nem gran prix from scratch every time we open the app. The second addition I would welcome is multiple difficulty levels. It's pretty easy to win a race the way it is now. Maybe some tougher challenge might attract hardcore gamers.
All said, I think these would be great additions to an already great game. Retro gamers might enjoy it very much.
An overall bad app, in Grand Prix mode they're glitches in the last 3 circuits that prevent you to win the championship, for example in the England track, you are all alone in the lead and the app starts chopping the image to the point you're either off the track or going the wrong way and other cars pass you, STAY AWAY.
A good game, but the only bad thing is the steering, its a little sensitive so it makes it a little hard to turn on sharp turns, but other then that the game is great, very retro (:
