    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to know what is going on with Light Riders? I should have been here by now.

    Would it be possible to see a video of the game in action or at least a full feature set list?

    Thanks!

    As far as I followed the other thread, they are still waiting for Apple to finish the review process and put it into the store.

    A gameplay video would awesome.

    I must say, that I am *really* disappointed with LightBike (http://www.taptoplay.de/2009/02/25/lightbike/ [German]). It feels wrong and the chosen camera perspective just breaks everything. LightRiders might fix this with their blue theme and the 2D top down view and the upcoming 3D view with different camera perspective finally sounds like it would transfer the look and feel of the movie in a good way.

    The free GLTron offers a really really great look and feel with different camera angels, perspectives etc. I hope, that LightRiders will be similar.

    it was submitted a day after zen bound and sway, so really it shouldn't be here yet, most likely a day behind those two games

    I played the free version of LightBikes and didn't think it was all that bad.

    The build I have of LightRiders only has the top down camera which scales back as you increase your speed. It plays really well and I prefer it over LightBikes.

    It should be today. Looking forward, we have a ton of features and updates planned. There will be an immediate update submitted to bring internet multiplayer. We are then focusing on all kinds of new level, bike, and game play enhancements we think all of you will love. We are committed to keeping our games fresh.

    We have been working very hard on our multiplayer platform. We are working very hard to get smooth results over EDGE. We will keep you guys posted on our testing.

    I'm happy just being wifi'd and able to get into a tournament or whatever. Brings me back to the Mario Kart DS days, W-L record and so on. I'm looking forward to this,.

    Hey, I can tell you that Light Riders will not disappoint. Visually, it's one of the more polished games you'll see, and the devs have promised updated features so don't confuse this with LightBikes. It's a totally different experience.

    It should be out soon soon soon. Again, I can't tell you how polished the game is, but you'll be pleased. Also, it may not have all the bells and whistles in this first release, but expect it in the update...

    ...according to my sources. :D

    Man if this comes out tonight thatll be three anticipated releases within 2 days; first Zen Bound, then Sway, then Light Riders.

    Can't wait for this; i too played lightbikes for awhile, and found it satisfyingly fun, but the view and control scheme were just too awkward to actually enjoy it. From the screenshots and descrips of light riders, it should be much more fun. Hope it comes out tonight.

    Yep, watch the store in the next 20 minutes or so.

    Should be out if it continues the trend started by ZB and Sway last night.

    I honestly think this past week to two weeks have been one of the greatest weeks in iPhone and mobile gaming history.
    Edge, ZB, puzzle quest, lightriders, idracula, rogue touch, the quest, tomagotchi,little red sled, and pocket god update oh and sway.

    I have to agree. Unfortunately, I barely have any free time to dedicate to my games because of work, and gaming while commuting doesn't do these games justice.

    Still, glad I have games to choose from and don't have to settle.

    I couldn't agree more. It's also the time where I've spent the most in the least amount of time.
