I have a lot of trouble with the full-sized courses, because the frame rate slows down so much that I can't tell what's happening. Probably because I'm on a 3-year-old MacBook, and it can't handle much in the way of graphics… In fact, I even sometimes get frustrating choppiness on menus (!), such that the mouse doesn't move fluidly. Too bad, because it looks like a fun game, even if it still needs some fine-tuning.
Cmd-Q doesn't so much work. Kind of annoying.
A fun little game, but why ignore UI conventions?
I agree. I like being able to quit without backing up through various levels of menus. I suppose you could force quit from the dock or menu bar. That would be a little more work than I'm used to, but much less mousing around than the other option.
Powerups are flawed. They either have little effect or they hurt you BIG time. Because this is an arcade racer, this greatly impacts the experience.
IMHO, let's try keeping games out of the next bundle.
Personally, I like getting the odd game, now and again. And I know others have requested them. It's hard to please everyone though.

Feel free to only copy the application on your hard drive. We ask users to copy the folder but only because it contains information about how to play the game and how to contact us if necessary (things that can't be bundled with the application .app.
It's true that the user manuals, license files and such are commonly distributed as separate files from the app. But I don't think that's what ajames92 was referring to. Rather, it was the folder entitled "images" (which contains bonusboost.jpg, bonusinvisi.jpg, etc.? Because it looks like these are images meant for use by the app. It is odd to see them stored external to the app itself. But that's a minor quibble, in my opinion.
The game opens under a Torque Demo game engine for me.
Any one else see this when starting the game? Normal?
Actually, this was answered previously. It's just a cosmetic flaw, left over from earlier in development (I take it this game is brand new), and will be corrected in the next version. I'm not sure if we are entitled to that version as a free update.
