    this game was really fun but it should need some performence upgrade for the iphone 3g because it really slows down so you almost cant play it.

    I have an iPod Touch 2g and there's considerable lag for the game. I don't get a feeling of speed and the graphics are blocky during gameplay. I know they mentioned that this works best on the 3GS, so I can't say how much better this might be on that device. Right now though, it's not great on the Touch.

    I had a 2G until 2 weeks ago when it broke. So I got the 3GS last week. Maybe I'll try this game later and see how it works on it. Although I don't understand why the dev would release a game that would only work good on the 3GS when a good percentage of people don't have one yet.

    OK so I usually try to look at th bright side of games. If they're not too good I try to be polite. But geez. So you know the basics from description and screenshots. Drive car, collect stars, blow up targets. At first it looked good since it had multiple locations and stuff. NO. Let's ee here.

    Performance. I'm on a iPod touch 2g. This is not too good. The menu itself lags while you tap stuff. There are a few cars and locations to choose from. They are locked. So I managed with the lag and launched the game. Too much. You have to flip over and such to gain points, blow up targets with the missile, and collect the stars. As I said performance is laggy.

    Another frustrating thing are the controls. It's just a bit too much. Sometimes I pressed go to accelarate and it would get mixed up with throwing missiles. So I lined up straight with a target to fire a missile. Where are they fired from? I'm lined up with it. It's not hitting the target. I don't really see it launch eithebit just takes a few seconds and then I see a explosion somewhere. The car flips a lot which is sort a problem.

    In total, don't buy. I'm usually not this harsh but I'm honest. Oh and sorry if theres any mispells. Typing on ipod.
