    The Sky Gnomes universal download is surprisingly challenging and filled with cool, unexpected gameplay.

    There might be an end somewhere in sight, a time where the grind outweighs the entertainment, but the hours of fun to be had in the meantime are well worth the initial purchase. Don't miss this one.

    Sky Gnomes isn't perfect, but you'll probably reach for it when you feel the need to smoke some competition.

    It's not a perfectly smooth ride, and just like its thrill-seeking stars, Sky Gnomes misses the target now and again. But at 0.99, with a whole lot of ambition, I'd certainly recommend taking the plunge.

    Sky Gnomes is a fun little racing title with an original concept at it's heart. But, I can't see people sinking a lot of time and effort into it, other than a quick diversion.

    Brilliantly presented, and with some great ideas about asynchronous multiplayer, Sky Gnomes doesn't quite have the gaming chops to back up all of its clever concepts.

    With daily leaderboards and a host of upgrades, Sky Gnomes offers a unique and interesting racing experience. It's just a shame you have to grind to get anywhere.
