774371_5Trapdoor Inc recently dropped the price of their on-rails stunt racer GI Joyride [App Store] to $0.99.

The game was originally released at $2.99, and is certainly a high quality production, but with its single gameplay scenario, $0.99 certainly becomes a more attractive price.

The game puts you in charge of an APC vehicle and the goal is simply to drive for as long as possible while killing Nazi's and performing tricks (wheelies, flips) to beat your personal records. Simple acceleration, braking and tilt controls help keep your vehicle in balance. If you slow down too much or flip on your back, the game ends.

While there is only one level of unlimited length, the course features do randomize between plays.

Reader game impressions are provided in the initial discussion thread, with some specific thoughts posted here.

    Running over Nazi's while going in a straight line? and flipping over once in a while is called "tricks"?

    I actually find this game to be pretty addicting. It has very simple gameplay, but somehow, it's a lot of fun.

    BTW, I found that if you slide your thumb from the far left to the far right, you'll accelerate real fast and do a wheelie everytime.

      If you tap the beak and then hit the gass you trigger the wheele super speed.

    Hey, thanks for the tip, not you.

    I bought this game, GI Joyride, for the original price and was happy at that price. There isn't, as RM Imagery points out, awhile lot of depth; however for a quick pick up and play, I still do alot!

    Updated content is coming in April. Alot of improvements based on user feedback are to be included. I still say: Nice job Trapdoor!

    There's certainly a place for simple gameplay. So why not dress it up with great graphics? The video looks like fun.

    This looks great! Such an amusingly simple concept; the graphics look pretty good from what I see here. I'm a big fan of nicely rendered 3D graphics and atmospherics. I'm downloading it as soon as I get home. What would I do without TouchArcade?
