What's New in Version 1.0.9
* Save game issue on iOS8 fixed.
Edit: Game went downhill with subsequent updates adding micro-transactions. It's also unfortunate that vehicles are for the most part direct upgrades and not sidegrades so there is little point in trying out different ships (just use the one with the best stats) unlike WipEout. Lastly it would have been much better if you could choose pure time trial or race on each track. I could look past all this however if not for the retroactive microtransactions. I was going to buy pixelbite's newest game but now I'm worried about shady retroactive microtransactions =/
Edit: haha, just looked at some of the other reviews. The controls took me one race to get used to. It's YOU, not the controls. Probably not wipeout or fzero fans. I do think a lower speed class should be added for people like you guys who are new to the genre and need a more gradual difficulty curve.
This is precisely how the time trial portion of WipEout on iOS should be done. Well worth the $1 (worth more than that actually). A cautionary note, there is only one speed difficulty so if you don't think you can handle high speed racing, don't bother with this. It won't be fun for you.
Updates are planned and hopefully the game is expanded to include races and other modes, but for now the $1 is still excellent value for what is here. If race mode and more is added this app would be well worth $5-$10 if the quality is as good.
The graphics are amazing, the soundtrack is well orchestrated and the offered gameplay is smooth and solid.
I say offered gameplay, because I was hoping for something more involved. Im not a huge fan of racers where you dont really control much other than turning. I would have liked to have had a more engrossing experience akin to say "Wipeout" or "Extreme G".
Unfortunately, the racer goes, you either avoid or hit a green or red polarity field, and do your best not to bounce off of walls. There seems to be little challenge other that not bouncing off of walls, and hitting these polarity fields.
You cant fly off the grid, you dont seem to blow up or take damage... you just go and accomplish tasks.
Would like to be able to control my racer, as well as have a bit more involved racing.
Otherwise, its kinda boring.
Excellent racing game. Fast paced, neat ships, pretty environments, plus many control options. Music is surprisingly catchy, and while IAP are offered, there is absolutely NO need for them :D (Note: the game is not very easy. If you can't control the ship very well, check your sensitivity and control options. The fault is not with the game.)
