Developers must hate it when we draw one word comparisons with existing games, but "Wipeout-like" is the most concise way for us to relay our (good) impressions of CobraMobile's Low Grav Racer .

Pocketgamer.co.uk pointed out the video for this nice looking title which is available from YouTube or in high quality QuickTime or WMV formats.

The game appears to be a track racer in which you pilot a ship flying in low gravity. Special items can be picked up, including a speed boost (lightning bolt). The game comes from CobraMobile who is also responsible for Numba [App Store] and Mouse About [App Store]. We previously looked at Mouse About which was a remarkably polished game. It certainly gives us a lot of hope for the quality of Low Grav Racer.

    WOW!
    If I had seen this ten minutes ago, I might not have bought Clusterball (it was worth it though). This looks like it'll great.

    This looks really really good and makes me hope that this will be our F-Zero! I won't buy Clusterball (the gameplay doesn't appeal me) and wait for this.

    And on their page they have a menu item for Cobra Karting! Maybe, finally, a nice fun kart racer with fluid graphics?

    YES YES YES!!!! The iPhone Accelerometer has been crying out for a game like this and Wipeout! I absolutely loved Wipeout 2097 to the death, my very first PS1 game. It was just so awesome. Just add a soft-touch area on bottom left for firing whatever weapon or booster you have, bottom-right for air brakes, and maybe top-right for changing to 1st person view (if possible, I'd be happy enough with just 3rd person for now).
    Please please please make this work! I'll even buy Numba just to get this game!

    Oh, and change the name to something a little more funky... "Low Grav Racer" just doesn't do it for me :)

    Agreed on the title hkiphone. It's not funky enough.
    Still, the game looks amazing- how about those clouds! Controls look tight, and looks exciting to play. Looking forward to this.

    Looks promising, but the music needs to be spiced up a bit.

    Hopefully we can use our own music with this, I have the Wipeout 2097 soundtrack ready and waiting :)

    What's Wipeout? Clearly this is F-Zero inspired... looks like that craft controls like Pico's Wild Goose... very bad at actually changing direction.

    lol, I looked up Wipeout... it's not a real racing series... they haven't had a console game since 2002... everything since was downloadable games with the lousy quality you expect to come with them. (The iPhone should be getting much better than this.)

    I would be a little bit more excited to see some hills and or loops. After all this is 3D. A lot of our iPhone racers seem to be pretty flat.

    "Not a real racing series"? WipEout is the standard for futuristic arcade racing, and the PSP versions were (a) not downloadable, but proper releases, and (b) of great quality. WipEout Pure was a great demonstration of what the small PSP was capable of, and so was its sequel.

    Oh, and the soundtrack is always ace! :-)

    Nothing beats Wipeout. It had the euro-Japanese fusion, well composed soundtrack with well known artists, humble sound effects and beautiful grid and universal logo design.
