    Hi all,

    I made a simple endless racing game with a retro style, it's nearly completed I am testing if there is any bug on different devices. You get to drive a nice pixel art car into a dense traffic highway, with a twist, you are going wrong way! The goal of the game is to get as far as possible without crashing into other cars coming in front of you. Simply tap left or right to switch lanes to avoid collision and collect coins on the way. With coins you can then unlock new cars!

    Some screenshots and gameplay video:



    It would be really helpful if some players here could play test the game, ideally on new devices such as iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus.

    Here's some Promocodes:

    No apparent issues on gen 5 Touch so far. Runs nice and smooth, seems like a fun game with a lot of "just one more go" replayability. Retro style is nice too. Plenty of cars to buy. My only issue is it seems it might get slightly grindy to earn coins to buy cars.. And the timers. Nice otherwise.

    Yeah I'm not sure also about the coins formula, I was inspired by Tiny towers formulas but I might tweak it considering user feedback. I'm also planing to add more cars and "dilute" the formula. for new cars I'm thinking a formula 1, a hummer, maybe a batmobile like car. I'm open to ideas :)
    I'm glad you like it, and thank you for your feedback!

    No worries, I was reluctant to mention the IAP, cause I don't want to offend , and I know it's a touchy subject.. It could be interesting to add in races against another car, or cops perhaps? Random thoughts, but F1 would be cool.

    I used LL37WNTPX9WP, thank you.

    While there is no groundbreaking new gameplay here, the game is a nice little free to play diversion. Two things; GameCenter doesn't seem to be tracking my progress and is there a way to turn off notifications? Thanks again,

    Richard

    Btw, I'm on an iPhone 5S running iOS 7.1.2 and have had a very smooth play experience. :)

    I didn't think of this, you can't turn off notifications for the moment, I'll add a checkbox in options.

    Is there anyone with an iPhone6 who likes to try the game?
