    Reckless Racing - Android app on AppBrain

    The game downloads from market is about 3mb. When you launch the game it downloads the main file to the SD card (even on Android 2.1). The server was over run yesterday but seems to be working today but still a bit slow.

    The game itself is great fun ! I'll try out online game later...

    The game works on the HTC Legend but the frame rate drops in race. If you can pull out a lead and drop the other cars of screen its just about playable. However it is borderline on the HTC Legend, so be warned.

    Just purchased it and its great!! Initial download can take up to 40 minutes, but it is really worth it! Awesome graphics and smooth gameplay, highly recommended!

    Runs great on my Samsung Vibrant Galaxy S.

    Normally, if the developer can't be bothered putting screen shots in the Market, I can't be bothered downloading their app. In this case I will make an exception. I bought it and after it claimed I had no license (going to their Buy It link and opening it from the Market seemed to solve that), it began the download process. After about 5 minutes I see no progress in the progress bar but will wait since you said it takes a while.

    Works great on my Droid X. On the initial data install, I made sure my wireless was on and just left my phone do its thing while I did something else for an hour. When I came back the game's menu screen was showing and I was off having some racing fun. Great graphics and the controls seem pretty good for this type of game too.

    Whatever you do, don't hit any buttons when it's downloading! I just hit back by accident and I get to start all over. Damn, it was at about 75%.

    Edit: After a pause it picked it up where it left off.

    Out of curiosity, how is the control scheme on this game (easy or hard)? I'd be picking this up for my DX.

    I find the controls pretty much the best I could hope for on my DX. That is to say,..I like it! :)

    Best graphics of any game I've played yet on android. The 3D engine looks gorgeous! I hope they do more with it :)

    With that being said, you definitely need a phone with a dedicated GPU. Sorry, but snapdragons wont cut it.

    The game actually runs decent (better than most 3d games) on my Hero (oc'd to 768). The game runs flawlessly on my friends Incredible. The graphics look excellent, but this game seems to get by with relatively little in the hardware department.

    That's the first I've heard of it running well on the snapdragon family of devices... but great news :) I should give it a go on my EVO just to see.

    Runs fine on my EVO. The only time the game stutters is during multiplayer, but I think its more of a network issue rather than a hardware one. All this game needs is a few more tracks and multiplayer needs to be optimized...

    Due to demand, Polarbit have temporarily pulled this game ... there's a reason for this level of demand:

    This is easily the best combination of fun and awesome graphics on an Android! I was patient enough to wait for the download on Saturday and it was well worth it!

    Protip - get Reckless Racing!

    Good graphics and fun for a bit, but waaaay too easy. I beat all 3 tiers the 1st time I played without losing once. Not enough tracks or cars either. Not work $2.99 IMHO, but that's just me probably. I got about 50 times the gameplay with Minisquadron and that cost me a buck.

    I thought it was pretty easy as well... but I guarantee you this game will get a lot of updates to make it worthwhile.

    I also hope the developers use this 3D engine for more stuff. This is easily the best looking game on Android right now. Look at that water! *drool*
