The initial results are promising: #2 on the top free chart and #20 on the Top Grossing on the first day of release.


And it is marvellous to get a credit like this on your CV:

    We’ll done. Good game.

    Just slightly puzzled by the energy mechanic. IMO it seems a bit shoe horned in and unnessary in a game like this.

    I bet you’d make more money if it was ripped out.

    I’m guessing they’ll claim it’s to do with displaying localised pricing…but it’s clearly not.

  • I don’t know. I’ll ask.

    Why are kart prices not listed on the karts, and completely unknowable until you are ready to commit to an IAP?
