    We have a quite large betatesters team, and they have tested the game on many, many, different devices...

    Good for them, but until I have tried a game for myself, no-one elses oppionions are worth anything.

    I am one of the *priviliged* reviewers and I have to say that I do prefer a playable demo before buying a game.

    For me, gameplay plays a MAJOR role in a game and seeing the game can hardly be compared with the experience of playing it, even if for only a little.
    So, I'm definately in favor of playable demos and I don't understand the resistance that some developpers have to releasing a simple playable demo.

    Anyway, thumbs up for a great game

    ... and if many users are still not convinced about the controls we will release a second demo with a playable mode.
    Why not doing it right away? You wouldn't face such resistence here at all.
    Think about you can catch a good portion of customers in addition if you have a playable demo.

    No offense to the official reviewers out there but most of these reviews tend to gloss over the finer details. Also many appear to be casual PPC users, not the kind you would find here in Brighthand (Lightman, I look forward to your review). Most PPC reviews are just not brutally honest enough for me personally. The pros and cons are sometimes just too obvious, something that could be picked up after 10 minutes of play.

    And beta testers. Well I can think of another game that was supposedly heavily beta tested on many devices, but was still bug ridden on a couple of the more well known PPCs like iPAQ and Toshiba. I don't think this will be the case with your game because it sounds like you guys are very in tune with the PPC community. But has all the bugs been identified for my PPC? I won't believe it until I try it myself, but I guess I won't since there will not be a playable demo. I refuse to buy anything without a demo. Same goes for my PC.

    By the way, another lesser known E750 bug you should probably be aware of:
    Depending on how you access the buttons on the E750 (GAPI, other methods) the button offsets for some reason reverse themselves. The E750 should have the same offsets as the iPAQ - from left to right 0xc1,2,3,4. But with some games (Ziosoft's in particular) whatever was mapped to 0xc4 get mapped 0xc1, etc. It made Spawn a pain to play because the jump and action button which should be mapped to 0xc3,4 remapped to the first two button 0xc1,2. Bizarre. I don't know if it is a GAPI bug or problem when you don't use GAPI. Thought you should be aware of this. I have seen a half dozen games affected by this problem which only seems to be an E750 issue.

    Good luck.

    The following devices are not in the compatibility list of Crazy Kart :

    HP iPaq H5450 (PPC2002)
    HP iPaq H5550 (PPC2002)
    Toshiba e750 (PPC2002)
    Toshiba e740
    Toshiba e330
    Casio E200
    Dell Axim X5


    Crazy Kart will run on those devices but the frame rate will be in the range 10-15FPS, so we don't recommend owner of those devices to buy our game.

    We are working hard to ensure that our games work equally on all platforms. It is not an easy tasks since documentation is often lacking and manufacturers are not always prone to help small developers like us to get the best out of their devices.

    We are still working on this performance issue (ATI imageon & MediaQ).

    I agree

    btw, I'm an official reviewer for pdabuyersguide, but I'm not reviewing this game for them ( it's someone else) or any other international site (in english, I mean)

    Anyway, my review is for a portuguese site, but I can translate and post it somewhere around here

    So what devices you recomment for your game? What framerates you get there?

    OK, forget about device list, saw it on your website. But framerates are of interest.

    I'm getting around 25-28 fps on my Ipaq 2215, even in the more complex tracks with all 4 competitors on screen at the same time Generally very smooth
