Super Cars II - iOS Remake

I've just posted a video of a very early WIP of my [ Show youtube player ] remake for iOS devices.

I'm currently in the process of building a new game based around SC2, using this engine and the original tracks as the basis but need some help with the graphics, hence my reason for putting this WIP out there.

Progress right now is slow, but I'd like to pick up the pace and have my dream realised, but I need the right people onboard to help

Well it certainly looks exactly like the originals completely with the company logos I just can't imagine that this plays well on a mobile device though, the game especially in the faster races is all about ultimate precision and quick reflexes. You'd probably have to relax the side-bumping a whole lot and put in some kind of "car-straightening assistance".

"Harrison Ford" made me smile, was that in Supercars 1? I can't remember that.

i would have the game have an "auto pilot" where your car drives round the track on its own (slowly) and your in control of the throttle and weapons. You can put your foot down on the straights and press an "overtake" button to get past other cars, but if you go to fast round a bend the car skids and you loose time etc

mobile touchscreen games are very fiddly, especially ones that require split second timing and as this game requires that constantly, the second you thumb or finger moves a milimetre away from the direction buttons, you have literally lost control.

He's in II, don't know about I. Nancy Allen too (an actress who appeared in Carrie and all the RoboCop films). They'd never get away with that today.
