I have played a fair bit today and have so far enjoyed every minute.
Graphics are really nice and it looks awesome when you have a track with a nice low camera.
But...
Damn it can get hard. I managed to get all the golds from Rookie and have started on the next tier and so far only struggled on a couple of races.
I can't put my finger on it (no pun intended) but it seems difficult to get the cars to slow for corners and not spin.
The only way I can do it is by drawing really slow for the whole track but obviously this isn't going to beat the harder opponents.
Also I discovered if you draw a line from the start that you can just tap at points along the line and it will set the speed automatically.
Anyways I'm gonna get back to racing and see what else I can find. This is going to take some practice!

I got it too.
Game centre seem absent and it has some crystal thing or something... Asks me to join. I hope I don't have to for multiplayer or leader boards.

Thought it would be nice to choose where the turbo button goes. I'm left handed and would like it on the other side.

Great game though! It's evolved from the original. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_biggrin.gif

My gamecenter name is Euphoric Fusion.
It's the same for crystal too ( I was already signed up from Angry Birds I think).

why does Redlynx keep taking my money. I was really not interested in this game. I played the last one and thought it was OK but after seeing it for $0.99 it was hard to not get it.

So I bought it and I am happy. It looks amazing and I am enjoying it. Wont play it like 1000 Heroz but it is really good fun. Im still working my way through rookie difficulty so we'll see how hard it gets.
But again another solid release RL.

I just dont know how they can pump out so many quality games... 1000 Heroz, MotoHeroz, Drawrace2 and Trials Evo. Not sure when MotoHeroz comes out but overall that is a pretty awesome lineup for the last 6 months of the year!

Well done.

Add me too if you want. See below

I loved the first game and instantly bought the new one for the iPhone. But I found it unplayable. The tracks are too small, they scroll and my finger gets in my way every time I try to draw the path. I did not have that problem with the first game. Then I bought the game for the iPad and it is absolutely fantastic! It looks gorgeous, the path drawing works perfectly and makes a lot of fun. Seems to be a stay for my iPad, like Death Rally and Reckless http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif.

Same for me. I have a really innacurate pointing finger it seems. If only there was a pen you could use like the DS.

EDIT: Oh wait.... there are stylus' available http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_redface.gif

Bought a stylus for my iPod.
Great to play Draw Race with but for normal use it's not great.
Kinda feels like a rubber tipped pencil and cos you need to press hard there is quite a bit of resistance.

Just got 1st place for the first time! In the Elite tier, Formula City Spectacle.
Not sure how long it will last but I'll enjoy it while I can http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif

No way to play with more than 2 players even when screenshots show 4 makes me sadface. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_sad.gif

Don't you just need to finish the novice championship for multiplayer to unlock?

Yep its like 5 levels? We have to add info. Only few bad comments and those are from players that complain that there is no mp.

What? I went all the way to talent and I can only play with TWO players.

Anyway, this is a pretty good sequel to an awesome game. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

Is there something up with the timing? A few times now I have hit the EXACT same time on certain tracks and there are quite a few leaderboard entries with the same time too.
Also all these times end in 0/3/5/7 000ths of a second.
Powerslide Championship is a good example.

Ok. Loving the game so far and is addictive. But RL have done something that I hate in an iOS game so I have to point it out. The game is perfect but I have a big issue with the audio. If I missed the setting for this Len let me know n

I travel 1.5 hours each way to and from work each day. I love music and the only way I enjoy my trip is with music. I listen when reading gaming and any other time. What I hate is when a dev makes me listen to the game audio or their in game music. It kills me because I much prefer my music and my iPods/ iPhones are primarily music devices.

I do understand that the audio is a key part of the gameplay but I would love some integration with my music. Perhaps have it so a particular playlist is used by the game like gta did. What would be cool would be to modify the tracks so it sounds like it is playing at each track.

I'm not asking for the ability to block out the cars. I want to hear them, I just want to also be able to hear my music aswell.

You may disagree but I have seriously stopped playing some games because of this.

Cheers.

Point is valid. I add that as note and hopefully it can be fixed in update asap.

Does anyone else feel like the line you draw changes once the race starts?
I've noticed it more on oval tracks but seen it on others too.
I'm sure I draw the line close to the inside of the corner but never across it too much and definitely not so much to catch the grass and lose speed, but during the race I can clearly see the line doing just that. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_confused.gif

Yup. I notice it more on the road race style tracks. I see my line while I am drawing, and then the game shifts perspective a bit and my line is altered a little bit.

It's good to know it's not just me.
I ruined a load of World League runs due to this and that's why I posted it.
On the rally track today (powerplant?) I always gave the tight hairpins a good bit of room yet it kept clipping the inside and slowing me right down.
