DrawRace by RedLynx Ltd is the first racing game where you draw your own path around the track. You simply draw a line, and your car follows it. You must beat the computer to unlock the next levels. The computer steadily gets more difficult to beat. This seems like all fun and no challenge, but there’s the twist. Real physics are put into this game. The speed at which your finger is moving when you draw the path determines the speed at which your car will drive around the track. If you go around a corner too fast, you will skid out of the way and it will slow you down. You can choose to race around with the computer, or you can race with 2 or 3 players on the same iPod.
Once you have destroyed your friends or the computer, you can upload your scores to the online server and see how you place with people all around the world. DrawRace is a very simple game with great physics, challenging computers, and tons of well designed graphics.

Monster Trucks Nitro by RedLynx is an exciting time trials monster truck game. You must guide your monster truck up ramps, off jumps, and collect nitro for extra speed. Each level is very well done with great graphics. The levels range from a loop, to a desert, to an industrial work area. When you begin, there is only one level unlocked. As you beat the levels in the preset times, you will get a bronze, silver or gold medal. These medals unlock the next tracks. There are two trucks that you can unlock. To do this you must simply win gold medals. Your five best times will be displayed for each race.
The game has a different perspective for controlling your truck than many other iPhone apps. Rather than being in the cockpit or behind it, you are actually beside it, looking on from the side. To move your truck simply press on the gas pedal. Then, tilt your device from left to right tol either raise or lower the front or back of the truck. You will go much faster if the tilt of your device matches the terrain. In the bottom right of the screen is the throttle (gas) button as well as a cruise control. On the opposite side is the brake. To pause the game, tap once anywhere on the screen. To restart a level, motion your finger from the right to the left, and to change the camera zoom, motion your finger downward. To perform insane flips, tilt your device 360 degrees and watch your truck fly.
The settings menu gives you the option to change the level of sound on effects and music. The instructions menu explains the gameplay of the game and lets you view the credits.
Monster Truck Nitro is an exciting game with hours of replay value. Whether you are a truck fanatic, or are just looking for some fun, this game is for you.
Monster Truck Nitro is available in the iTunes App Store for $1.99
