Under rating threshold (show) Tire upgrades should increase your handling. Slalom courses suck.

Under rating threshold (show) I agree. The crashing into items for credit is far more difficult than the championship events and the overtaking events.

Under rating threshold (show) Great Game...but Im worried about the difficulty of the game...I can win races 1st place every time without trying but when it comes to having to hit objects or get the gates I can barely pass...Possibly work on the difficulty?

Under rating threshold (show) Nice idea with the Boost charging up by Drafting... ...however, I just completed the Championship in 1st place total score after 12 races, and there is... nothing? Not even a congratulatory screen, much less any special boon like a "Super Car". Come on. Anything?

1.03 released. Added a bonus fun mode for completing all events. Now you can unlock the hulk car and spin off everyone else with ease!

Under rating threshold (show) Solid racing game with good graphics. A more elaborate upgrade system would be nice though, as the game tends to get a bit monotonous after a while.

We need to know what sort of upgrade system you want.

Under rating threshold (show) It's somewhat irritating/useful that all the races earn you the same amount for winning (ignoring sponsorships). Just get a medium sponsor and do the first race over and over again to upgrade your car considerably, and you'll easily beat the difficulty curve. The only exception to this is slaloms. Damn you, slaloms!

Under rating threshold (show) Really nice small racing game. Just one point of criticism: Please don't enforce "action" with a shaky camera on us. Its okay, if the camera moves with the use of booster or if you crash into something. But if the camera shakes while driving in a straight line, it gives me a headache.

Under rating threshold (show) Car customization is a a little weak, not really much point if all there is is the ability to change one color scheme, especially with the automatic sponsor decals that don't change with the car. Should just have the entire car change with the sponsor than tease us with such a minimal customization mechanic. Improved handling option would be much appreciated. The minigames are a nice touch, tho the random generator for placement should be less random, it is hard to hit two objects that are horizontal from one another a whole track width apart. The game looks nice and gets addicting, which makes for a good time waster. With a few more additives and tweaks it could be addicting for much longer than it is.

Under rating threshold (show) I have to say that this is a neat an impressive game. You took the elements of Formula Racer and managed to spice it up, adding features that were once suggested by the previous game. Great job turboNuke.

Under rating threshold (show) no he doesnt mean drifting!! drafting is when you get up close behind another car so the air pressure is decreased for your car making it faster

Under rating threshold (show) my suggestion for a upgrade system would be to split the current ones into sub-upgrades... for instance, boost could be split into "Capacity"/"Duration"/"Power" and then Engine could be split into "Horsepower(max speed)"/"Acceleration (how fast it gets to max speed)", Tires can be split into "Drift"/"Grip"/"Duration", The fuel can be split to "Duration"/"Capacity"/"filter"(the higher the level, the more pure and efficient the fuel is making the car faster) :) these are just a few of the possible ideas for upgrades. + if you agree :P

Under rating threshold (show) One of the worst in-game cameras I have ever had the misfortune of enduring. Why the hell does it bounce around like it's drunk? There is no intelligent reason to program your game's camera like that ever. It makes the the "hit X number of obstacles" challenges far more difficult than they need to be.

Under rating threshold (show) in june 21 there's a race that to receive gold award we should overtake 40 cars, but when we start the race, it says that my position is 40/40, this means that there are 40 cars INCLUDING me. How am I supposed to get gold if i can only overtake 39 cars? (I can't overtake myself)

Under rating threshold (show) Don't even try to get all gold medals...at 30 you get the Kon badge , and for all you get....nothing. Just concentrate on getting the ''pass'' objective to unlock the car. 100% gold completion unlocks nothing.

Under rating threshold (show) For the hard badge, this game is really not that complicated. When you are starting out, simply upgrade everything to 30%, then upgrade only engine first to max. Next get aerodynamics to max, then boost, then feel free to upgrade anything else you want. Press + if this comment helped you and to keep it alive!

Under rating threshold (show) I hate the slalom courses (poor handling) and absolutely dreaded the robot courses. Instead of randomizing the bot placement so that's it's impossible to complete it sometimes (ex when bots are next to each other and require more than one lap to hit), they should have set placements. I should not be relying on luck to have them placed just right.

Under rating threshold (show) The game is very fun but it needs a more solid upgrade system. For example the tires would increase the handling of the car or maybe made its appearance change a bit, the same thing with strength and offroad.

Under rating threshold (show) You guys have to work on your perception of the word "difficulty". Mixing up easy races with nearly-impossible challenges (and upgrades that does not stand the increased ability of the opponents in later stages) could be frustrating. Beside this, nice game. 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) For those saying the hard badge is... hard, well, you only need to get gold on 30 stages out of 44! Skip the last race, the last overtake mission, the slaloms, the custard pies and the robots and maybe even the haddocks and you'll still get it. For most hit missions, you should just turbo your way through and cover as much ground as you can. Cone are the easiest, just be patient and hit them, using turbo on straight lines. And if you still can't get it, wait until you're better equipped and try again!
