    Slingshot Racing is a fresh take on racing games and is a shining example of a game that's well-suited to the touch screen and the mobile nature of iOS devices.

    Slingshot Racing is a ton of fun. The quick sessions make it perfect for pick-up-and-play gameplay, the grappling hook mechanic is very easy to learn, yet difficult to truly master. Snowbolt and Crescent Moon have absolutely nailed this game.

    Featuring stellar steampunk-inspired graphics, dead simple controls, and smooth as silk animation, Slingshot Racing has all the trappings of a classic iOS game save for online multiplayer action.

    I have to rate the game separately when it comes to the single player, and multiplayer experience. The difference is huge, and if I give it a combined rating it might go un-noticed, as it is one of the best same device simultaneous multiplayer games released for iOS to date. It is a shame that the single player campaign isn't as rewarding.

    Slingshot Racing is as smooth graphically as it is in its tether turning system, and it's well worth a spin into your app library.

    Slingshot Racing is a refreshingly beautiful and elegant racer that may not be as hardcore as similar titles, but combines simple controls with skilled timing perfectly.

    Slingshot Racing is a breath of fresh air and a true testament to the distinguishing creativity that you can find in the App store. We just wish there was a little bit more to it.
