SMG Studio's next game, Thumb Drift, has a release date locked down, and it's...this week! On Thursday, February 18th, you'll be able to play this one-touch drifting high score chaser. It's undergone some tweaks and improvements since the first time I saw back at PAX Prime 2015, and it's shaping up to be a rather fun game from the creators of One More Line [Free] and other such fine titles.

The game should feature a very Crossy Road [Free] like monetization, where you collect coins and watch video ads to help unlock new cars, with the potential for all sorts of wacky vehicles. The thumb-sliding mechanic in this game feels really good to play with, but very difficult to master as your car is just always a bit out of control. It felt pretty promising from the first time I played it, and later builds didn't make that feeling go away. Check this one out on Thursday.

    Nice. Really counting on the frame rate they showed at PAX Prime.

      The frame rate is fast. It was fast on my iPhone 5s and it's fast on my iPhone 6 too.

    Been playing this in beta testing, and i can say nothing but good things for this game. It's fast, and it's fun. And it's FAAAAST.

    I've also been playing this during its entire beta phase and it's a fast, fun, and addicting game. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on it. I hope the game does well for the devs. They do care about this game.
