Yeah, I am hyped as well. And it'll release after my last lecture is done which is great, because I can start playing sooner.
But wouldn't it have been better if you waited until the developers created their own release topic or are they not on this forum?

Greetings and happy gaming, Julian

I thought about waiting, and I'm not sure if they are on the forum or not. But, they did not announce their newest trailer here on the forum, they did not announce anything about the streams they have made and they did not announce anything from their tweets yesterday or today. So therefore, I thought it would be great to create this topic with the announcement so people can grab this on the release time, because they did that themself on their own Twitter profile short time before I made this topic.
I hope they'll keep an eye on this topic to read and comment on peoples feedback when the game has been released.

Best regards SLJ.

I am really excited for this, mostly the phone version since we need a game like this on mobile.
Pc will also be fun though, probably gonna get it on at least 2 platforms.

I am going to get it for the IPhone, it'll be intersting to see how the controls on mobile work, because that was my biggest issue with most accessible car games on mobile.

I'm also excited. 5 hours from now means, I'll take my usual nap now, wake up then go to my dentist appointment, go shop for some clothes, then get back home and find it released. cool

It will only take 2 hours play it, so very very short, and guess not replay value. Demo far too easy, if you are a seasoned audio-gamer to be fair.

I hope the controls for the phone it's no tlike, tilt left or right to turn, that kind of gets really annoying aftor time, but i also don't see how else they could do it.

Interestingly enough, I missed the demo, since I thought this was more a standard racing game, which is less my thing, then when people started talking about the game and I went and checked some youtube videos, I realised it was more arcade action with a wonderfully nutty story, which is definitely more my thing big_smile.

I'll be getting the game today too. I'm not sure from the writeups I've heard how much extra there will be to do in the game beyond the initial 27 or so levels, EG Feer style progressive achievements, but at worst this means a good arcade experience, and at best, this could be something more long lasting, so while I can't pretend to be super hyped for the game (as I am about sonar islands), I'll certainly be looking forward to giving it a go, since whichever way it falls out it will be fun.

Hi all! I just came on here to post about the release smile So what do you say, should I make a new thread with all the details?

I would, that way the information is at the top. Hopefully the mods will agree to close this one. I'm of the opinion that if the developers want to make their own release topic, the users should yield to that request.

Join me in eliminating BGT from the forum.
It's very easy, if you see a topic about BGT, simply don't reply to it.
If you're thinking about creating a topic about BGT, just don't.
Doing these things will cause all such topics to sink to oblivion.

Well I've been playing and the game is fun. I like how actually brutal the reaction speed required is on normal, not to mention the nutty story (the ice cream bits made me laugh).

I am having trouble finding those motor cycles your supposed to run down, since unlike the regular cycles that give you extra lives, they don't have a bell, though maybe that is the point. But I do like the game and the bosses, and will be interested to see what achievements etc are available even when I've finished all the chapters (have just got to the second boss, albeit I had to replay a couple of levels).

@Datta, as regards the thread, it depends if there is any new information you want people to know about the release that Slj didn't cover with his first post.
Bare in mind, that the new releases part of this forum is mostly just for announcing newly released games as they're released, and isn't intended as any kind of permanent game record of what is available the way some game site forums are set out, that is what the database is for, and I'll be putting together a database entry for the game this week.

I've just been playing the Mac version of this game. I never got to play the demo, so it took me a short while to figure out how to get started, but it's all good now. I'm up to the stage where you need to run the cops down.
