First of all I'd like to say that this game looks great. Graphics are detailed and realistic.

The "tilt screen" method of steering your car feels almost like using a steering wheel, and I think was a nice game mechanic. The problems with steering are two-fold. First, there is no tutorial to explain how it's done. Only by stumbling around through the options screen was I able to finally figure out how to steer the car. Second, the steering is far too sensitive and far too slow to recover when you return your "wheel" to straight ahead. For a game that you aren't going to devote your life to mastering, it needs to be a bit more simple for the player to succeed.

Next, there is a MAJOR bug in the game. It often decides that you are going the wrong way on the track when you are definitely going in the correct direction on the track.

Devs: Tweak the steering and get rid of the bug and I could give your game five stars. As it sits I probably won't even load it again.

For free, if you like car racing games I'd definitely give this a try.

I played this game on a Kindle 8.9 HD, and encountered only the issues noted above.

You can tell that an effort was made in creating this car game, but there are way better ones. Real Racing 3 is free and pretty fun, and Asphalt 8 is awesome and free.

Pros:
+ Good Graphics
+ Smooth Gameplay
+ Detailed Tracks
+ No IAPs
+ Only One Permission

Cons:
- Really Slow Progression
- Extremely Limited Car Selection
- Difficult Controls
- $0.99 (Usually - I got it as a FAOTD)
- Boring/Dull

Bottom Line: An okay FAOTD. There are way better racing games though.

(Note: If you found my review to be unhelpful, please tell me why so I can improve in the future. I try my best to make my reviews as helpful as possible. Thanks!)

For a racing fan, this is a good game. Unfortunately, there are a few things I dislike about the game.

Graphics 5/5: Graphics are great. I don't remember the old days, but I'd say these graphics are pretty similar to GT3 (but it doesn't have nearly the same content).

Controls 5/5: This is a racing game on a smartphone/tablet. Many people will criticize it here because it is a little difficult to start, but for racing enthusiasts, I think they will figure it out soon. I tried the tilt controls for two races, didn't like it, switched to the buttons, and was decently happy. Again, this is not as refined as console controls, but I was happy with it.

Sound 3/5: You know when you're accelerating and braking, but the music was pretty bland (low bitrate). This is something that can be improved but no stars removed for this.

Gameplay 2/5: This is where I have beef with the game. First off, you MUST complete the challenges to continue the game. You start on challenge 1 and there appears to be 30. Sounded fine to me. However, after beating the first challenge, you replay the EXACT same map with different specifications: beat this car this time. Okay, that's fine, I'll do it once again. Now, I'm on challenge 3 and it's the EXACT SAME MAP AGAIN. I don't want to race the same map (and two laps instead of one), for three challenges in a row. I didn't unlock any of the new cars or any of the new maps. Let me race something else. I stopped here and decided to write a review because I don't want this to continue on for 5 challenges (and because while holding down the right arrow my car veered off to the left and caused me to lose the challenge. I am on the new Nexus 7 though, so I won't blame the developer).

I'm a very casual gamer, but this looked like a fun app to try.

I can't get past the very first time trial! The physics of the game aren't true. It's hard to drive straight through the narrow gates, the car spins out or goes incredibly slow on the grass. (My device might play into this as well.)

I was looking for a game I could play in my spare time, but I do not want to be stuck on the first level of a game for a long time, trying to figure out how to adapt to the physics of this game.

The developer would be wise to give stars or something, so that very casual gamers and kids can unlock levels, but experienced gamers can be challenged to beat their own scores.

I'm uninstalling. :-(

The title sums it up. Racing games always seem like fun until you play them. Gets an extra star for graphics.

After opening my brand new game with the successful feeling of it being the free app of the day,I noticed right away the crisp, realistic feel of the graphics. After playing my game for a few minutes, the overly sensitive steering didn't make me mad being a laid back gamer. I spent the next few minutes laughing because of my terrible driving, so over all I guess if you want a funny game to entertain you, than this game is for you!

This game takes some time to get used to if you're used to racing asphalt tracks. I tried the 'lite' version on my Nexus 7 and it didn't work right. This one does though. It's not in the league of GT Racing or Real Racing, but hey, (they) hound you all the time for money, this one doesn't! The only thing I really dislike is the amount of sliding the cars do on the paved portion of the course. In the dirt I expect it, but not on the asphalt. For the faotd,or even the buck they normally charge, it's an OK game that doesn't hound you to spend, spend, spend your money.. Maybe this developer could build a racing game like RR3 or GT Racing2 and just charge one up front price for a 100% unlocked game??? No IAPs??? Someone needs to do it!!!
