Remember, Retro Racing is FREE for a limited time only.
Plus, some promo codes for Qwak HD (it's iPad only):
Welcome any feedback or questions. Have fun!

Thanks Tube; yep, so they're both iOS games. As stated in the OP, Retro Racing is free at the moment, but will revert to paid soon, so please nab it quick! Also, may be an idea if you take one of the codes for Qwak HD (iPad only), to state which code you took.
Welcome feedback or any questions. Enjoy!
Also, I don't have an iPad, but your game looks fun. I hope it sells well. Good luck!

Yep, the game (Qwak) is actually 25 years old now. I started working on the first version of the game in 1988 (on the BBC Micro), it's since appeared on a number of formats, including (as Squirminator2k points out) the Amiga (published by Team17).
Sales wise, it's not been too encouraging so far. Certainly nowhere near as popular as Retro Racing was.
edit: not that thats a bad thing.
A lot of iOS games, especially racers, get this wrong.
Yeah! You're not the first to say so!
Thanks. Did you think it worked okay in Portrait orientation too?
Portrait orientation is the only mode I've used, actually.
Was there a specific game you drew inspiration from on this one, or was it more a mix of games?
RR actually reminds me a lot of F1 Dream, which I liked as well.
Anyhow, please remember to say if you took a code! Are there really 4 left?..
