This is the racing sim that >I< think we need.
The physics are as realistic as those in X-Plane, with engine power, tire cohesion, and aerodynamic drag and downforce all accurately modeled.
The tracks are the most fantastic things I could dream up... tracks that... COULD exist.
Now, with 500+ horsepower supercars and realistic physics, you can tackle those tracks that only exist in our imagination, but COULD be built in reality if we ever dared...
And, with in iPhone 6+ and a cheap Google Cardboard headset, you can do the whole thing in 3-D VR... which is really quite amazing. The world looks HUGE in there!
DRAFTING! Based on research papers on drafting to reduce drag, we now have lower drag behind other cars... time to slingshot!
Now here is where things gets interesting: Drafting also reduces the drag of the car in FRONT as long as the cars are very close, so you can also get a push by having someone tailgating you, as you ride their bow wave! Drag reduction can be up to 30% by drafting the guy in front, and up to 40% by riding the bow wave of the guy behind you... but the cars must be VERY close for this bow wave effect to happen! Can you use this drag reduction to get faster lap times?
Car moments of inertia are a bit refined to be a bit more accurate... this reduces tumble rates after accidents as well.
Post-race on-screen score now shows the score you just got on that lap, not your current BEST score!
This lets you see if you just set a personal record the moment you cross the line.
BEST score remains displayed on the mission cards as always.
Ratings and Reviews
The best game
The graphics aren't the best but this game is awesome. I got all 12 cars available. It has a mode where you can make your own track. It also has a BNSF train. I think there is about 7 different types of trains. I highly recommend getting this game. It also has down force physics. When it says that thing about fantasy violence it is just some red that comes up on the screen when you crash. The cars can be hard to control so I recommend this game for people 12 and up. If you have an iPhone 6+ you can put in the Google cardboard thing if you know what that is. Please support this company and get this game so they can make more.
I'm really enjoying Stradale on my iPad Air 2. It reminds me of the Atari classics Hard Drivin' and Race Drivin', both of which took care to simulate core driving mechanics as accurately as the technology allowed, but with crazy tracks. The controls are accurate - I'm finding virtual buttons for gas and brake with tilt steering emulates the driving experience well. And it's hard! Which is refreshing - a lot of us grew up with games that made no effort to hold your hand and this carries on that tradition. Trying something again and again until you nail it is immensely more satisfying than being assisted by a malleable A.I. that wants to give you a participation award.
This is the most challenging, hardest, but at the same time, funnest driving experience I have ever had on my iPad! I know the graphics aren’t the best but the driving physics are unmatched. I honestly hope that the developer continues with updating this as I would really hate to see this one go. I’m a 47 year old pilot that mainly plays flight sims but this one has most definitely made my favorites list!
