    Link? I can't seem to find it (at least in the U.S. AppStore).

    Excellent, thanks, the link from the AppStoreFeed works, but searching for the game through more conventional means goes nowhere...must have just been very recently put on the store.

    Hopefully that works.

    It looks great, really - but I will no doubt be waiting on reviews. If they can't get the 4th picture to work correctly - at least for me - then that makes me feel like I should give this one some time in the wild before a purchase.

    Beat to it twice. I need to be speedier - I can never beat Arn. :p

    Never mind now - the picture works too. (Ferrari = Great; a car NFS lacks) I was surprised to see Asphalt. I just happened to be looking at the Racing game section like I always do to check for anything new, and Boom, in the words of Steve. I was thrilled to get this up here when I saw the August 29th release date.

    tip for finding new apps

    I've noticed (consistently over many nights now), that if you search in the late evening on the "All iPhone Apps" page, this will show you the *new* apps:

    click onto page "2 of ...", then click back to "1 of ...". Guaranteed, you will see a different page 1 than you just saw seconds ago, with all the new apps listed.

    Why is this "fail"? Sorry for the rude awakening, but MOST games don't come with demos. Even renting a console game at Blockbuster or whatever costs money. It's really not right to judge a game's value before you play it...for all we know, this game could worth 10x its cost, or a tenth of the cost. But judging from how large the app is in terms of MB, and how good the graphics look, i'd say it's easily worth $10 if it plays even anywhere near how it looks. :rolleyes:

    I kind of watched videos of other device formats for this game, and their HD version that looks similar to the iPhone, even same splash screen.

    They all seem to be full of action like sparks flying, cars flipping, bumping, boosting, hectic stuff. Though, they all had sluggish, choppy framerate that just made all that crazy stuff disorienting, considering you are trying to race at high speed.

    I hope we get a video of the iPhone version to see if the framerate is a lot better. Is there a support link from the itunes page that gives a gameplay example?

    Or just use this link: feed://feeds.feedburner.com/RecentlyAddedIphoneApplications-PinchMedia

    If you put it in your bookmarks bar in Safari it will even give you a count of new items so you know when to look.

    All i have to say is...this game...ROCKS!

    Great depth, from cars (and even motorcycles!) to tracks, customizations to game modes, and of course awesome graphics. I am extremely impressed...for $10.00, this game is one of the few apps in the AppStore that justify its price. Easily will provide 100 hours of fun for the money...if you guys have ever played the Gran Turismo or Need for Speed series for the consoles, you'll feel right at home :D

    A very well done game that many others should follow!

    Woo, #2 ranked in the world as of Saturday...LOL. I am guessing a lot of people haven't "registered" through the game yet to see the rankings :D

    D'loaded 10 minutes ago. Crashes constantly. Haven't got through one session without getting bounced to the Home Screen.

    Funny, i've gone through a couple stints of 45 min. - 1 hour of playing time each, no problems here, not even so much as a slowdown...:confused:

    Same. A restart did the trick.

    How's the framerate? Smooth, good enough, or sluggish?

    Very good. An impressive game. Best racer yet, by a long stretch.
