    FAIR WARNING: Have installed on iPhone6 and it's hot enough to fry an egg!
    Processor is throttling back due to overheating turning the game to dog$hit.

    Have to run at 30fpswhich is hardly Zen like. :mad:

    Nothing in the App description states that an A8 proc. is insufficient to run at 60fps. Shame on you devs - how do I get a refund? and how on earth can this not be optimised? It's not like it's having to deal with texture load, etc...

    Lovely game!
    I’m having a much better time with the brake assist off. Now i’m messing around with the stability assist. It would be nice if i didn’t have to go back to the main menu to get to the control section.
    When i use touch joystick the reverse button doesn’t work.
    And since i only use my Ipad adjustable control boxes would be greatly appreciated! (Reckless Racing style).

    Great job as usual Noodlecake! Love this game on Steam and it seems to have made a pretty good transition to mobile.

    However, I have two requests:

    1. Option to resize/move on-screen controls

    2. Haptic feedback for drifting and/or button presses

    Like an absolute arse I spent about an hour last night trying to do a perfect drift round the centre block in the first tutorial......

    I did wonder why I was so rubbish at it. Anyway, now I’ve actually realised how stupid I was being I’m loving it to bits.

    I didn’t realise you had to drive into/under the block to start the actual tutorial.... I thought I had to drift around the centre five times.

    I felt like a right muppet when I sussed it.

    Update: if I close the app, I have to change the language back and forth again. Same problem.

    The update changes little. It’s only slightly easier to control on an Ipad.
    The reverse button still doesn’t work with joystick control.
    A waiste of your opportunity to squish bugs and make real improvements with an update.

    Great game. It did overheat my iPad Pro while out in the sun, first game to ever do it.

    MFI controls are good and work well. But on iPhone X it really needs force touch support for the acceleration at the very least.

    So, if iPhones6 and even iPad Pros are getting hot and/or low framerates, there is not point for me buying this on iPad Air1, right?

    Awesome game.
    Took some time to work it out at the start.
    Few little bugs, reverse when using joystick etc, that others have mentioned.
    And it looks great, love the design.

    Lost game save!!! Had all the unlocks done, was well on my to chase leaderboards!

    Anyone else have this problem? Makes me start at the tutorial every time but after a pause and go to main menu it would straighten it’s self out. Not this time, short of restore from backup I don’t think I’ll get it back

    Well took hours but I bombed the phone and restored from iCloud backup. Got my save back, played for a bit here and there with it working.

    Then lost my save again! What gives, anyone with all the unlocks having problems losing saves?

    Can we get iCloud noodlecake?

    Also repositioning and sizing buttons?
