Slingshot Racing ($0.99)

What’s it about? Top-down racer Slingshot Racing isn’t about steering and braking. It’s all about using slingshot timing to launch cars around curves at breakneck speeds.

What’s cool? Racing in Slingshot Racing is both extremely easy and difficult to master. Rather than managing your throttle and braking in order to win races, you gather speed by slingshotting around posts positioned at the curves in the track. Doing so requires only one control – tap to fire a tether at a nearby post and tap again to release it. Your speed and steering are determined by your timing for releasing your tethers. Slingshot Racing also includes four-way multiplayer on a single device.

Who’s it for? Racing fans looking for a different kind of control experience should check out Slingshot Racing.

What’s it like? Slot Racing provides another simple but addicting racing experience. You might also want to check out Slingshot Racing developer Crescent Moon Games’ other titles, including Paper Monsters.
