    LightBike free is fun and I still play it on my Touch, I also like how this splits the screen into 2 for multi player.

    Worth the price of a mars bar to me :D

    I think I'll skip this, the lite version was awful!

    Same here. I love Tron. I love good lightcicle games like GLTron.
    But this one awful and no fun. I would recommend Neutron, as mentioned above. Different game, same basics. And a much better execution.

    I liked this version.
    Nice to see a 3-D game, rather than the top down one that is in development too.

    Only problem I have with this is that there is not a massive improvement over the lite version.

    Only additions are multiplayer? What?
    Bit disappointed.
    I was hoping the lite version timer was going to be removed, or an option to turn off at least. But the timer is still there in the full game.

    Thought might have been other maps\levels with some obstacles etc.
    Maybe the ability to choose your colour.

    I just don't see a reason to upgrade from lite to full unless you have mates who want to play too..

    This is pretty much a copy of the OpenGL Tron game...so I don't see how anyone could say it's awful. I found it to be very fun...

    As far as I'm concerned...until I actually see the Light Bikes game from DSLabs...then it's vapor ware. It was announced like 8-10 months ago. It only has concept screens. No in game screens, no video. Nothing. They said it was coming out in January and it didn't. They got beat to the punch if you ask me.

    This one's 3D...theirs is 2D top down. I can't say I'm excited for the DS labs version anymore (I would check every few weeks for updates on their web site and never got any).

    One last thing...you can't say a better version is coming out by a different developer if you have not actually played or seen a video of said game.

    I'm loving this and can't wait for updates. I'll be playing wifi with my friend tonight.

    It'd be great if this became deeper with different arenas (small, large, walled obstacles or holes in the floor, etc...) stats like win pct, kills (when a bike runs into your wall) and Tournament mode where you start out in the basic arena against easy ai opponents and advance to bigger arenas and better ai.

    That will just make this an elite title and would be worth $5...

    p.s. i think the middle screen touch for boost is good but i have hit boost by accident when meaning to turn. might be better to make the boost spot less wide - but only a minor point. really good job overall on one of my favorite motifs!

    Ended up playing this for nearly my entire hour train ride the other day. Good stuff. When I saw the full version, with online multiplayer, I instantly bought it. For $0.99 this is a friggin' steal.

    I wasn't even going to bother trying the free version but I'm glad I did and bought the full version right afterwards.

    Yeah that's weird. I also love this game a lot. At the moment I can't see any reason to upgrade to the full version, hopefully future updates can justify my purchase.

    It needs some visual tweaks though, just to give it a more polished feel.

    I like this game. It's not perfect, but it is fun. Online play will make this game amazing. Until then, it's just pretty cool.
