    this is the option screen. you can change your name, the audio options are low, medium, high, and off. game controls let you turn off the soft keys from the game screen, and determine the position of the soft keys. you can also use the accelerometer for steering. you can view best lap times of each track here too.

    this is the gameplay screen. the three arrows at the bottom are the soft keys for steering. the first thing you notice when you start a race is how bad the sound quality is. the tires are constantly squealing an ear-piercing screech that drowns out the bad engine sounds. other than that, the drifting is out of control fun!!!!

    the tracks get pretty fun and there are some obstacles strewn about on some of them. there are also powerups such as speed boost, mines, and repair your car.

    the black mamba is the head racer. shes got some evil little tricks that can make this game pretty tough. overall, i love this game. that may be a little biased because i love racing games, but whatever.

    THE VERDICT: 4.7 stars out of 5
    gameplay: 4.9/5 less is more in this one. easy basic 2-D fun.
    graphics: 4/5 very smooth could be more detailed.
    sound: 1/5 terrible engine and tire noise. corny menu music. the only plus is that i can turn it off and listen to music.
    value: 5/5 1.99 is a fair price, and its got tons of replay value

    i love this game and would recommend it to anyone who is into drifting, racing, and/or classic arcade racing fun!!

    Great Review!

    Though I probably won't get the game, not my type.
