    I really like LightBike because that's what they are. Using the Tron name is out. Atari would have a phit. Grid Racer sounds kinda neat too.

    unless they at least start it out at 99 cents they won't stand a chance, not with lightbike being out first and the number one payed app.

    Using the name lite bikes will only get people confused and you should have released this months ago now you'll never do as GUD as light bike and you better realease a lite because that's wat made lite bike a hit

    Info from Dev

    It will be 0.99. It has full 4 player WiFi, with 4 separate devices. It has a full blown Multiplayer Lobby witch allows you to choose your bike color as the host and then you can choose which slots are open and which slots are AI bots. You can play with AI bots or just your friends, you choose.

    You can also choose your bike color on Solo mode.

    LightBike beat us to the punch, but we will have a better over all polished product compared to their product. You guys are going to love what is coming in our 1.1 update.

    Our version is built on a 3D engine also, but we have an overhead camera. Our next version will have camera choices. It will also be coming with a lot of features and additions, ones I know our friends and Pankaku have not thought of ;) Competition is good! :-D

    P.S. There is a lite version coming too.

    I will post a video and screen shots tomorrow so you guys can see what is coming. The stuff on our site is old ;)

    Looks like dsMediaLabs is going to blow Pankak's LightBike away.

    Personally I played Light Bike and I didn't feel any need to buy the full version. I think Light Bikes (or whatever it ends up being called) looks to be more feature packed and offer me a bit more. Plus the top down camera is, in my opinion, much nicer than the chase camera in Light Bike. And lastly I think this game does look more polished that Light Bike. For $0.99 I'll probably pick it up.

    Grid Racer

    I would say to do yourselves a favor and use Grid Racer (agreeing with the poster I quoted). Some are saying your game is going to suffer because the other game came out first and is currently in a top position...i'll have to disagree with that. If yours is a better game, people will pay the .99c for the better experience.

    Getting back to the point, if your game ends up being the better one..having similar names will only hurt you. You may end up helping the other game to make sales due to the confusion. For all you know a large chunk of sales for the other game already came from people thinking it was yours.

    The best thing you can do is to have a distinct name, and be "sure" that yours is the better buy. So what if "that other one" came out first, that never stopped people from buying multiple arkanoid and breakout clones.

    I say "Light Racer". I think you want to keep the "Light" reference, because let's be honest, the big appeal of these games it it's similarity to Tron's Light Cycles.

    So Light Racer, Grid Cycles, or something like that. But I think Light Racer is good and not too close to Light Bike.
