Game dev Polarbit recently released a new offering to the Android Market called Reckless Getaway, where you play the part of a wheelman after a bank robbery. Carrying the same kill-or-be-killed vibe as Reckless Racing, it's your job to get away from the fuzz any way you see fit -- including throwing them into oncoming traffic, walls, or whatever other element you can find.

The game features 17 all-new tracks, simple controls, realistic physics and controls, as well as unlockable levels and games modes. 

Reckless Getaway will set you back $2.99, and you can grab it by hitting the widget below.

    $2 too expensive.

      Really? Is it that hard to support a great developer? If you can't afford a $2 app, maybe you shouldn't have a smart phone.

        I think he meant that it's $2 over the price it should have been, which would make it $0.99.

      $2 is too expensive for a fast food meal that you can only enjoy once, yet I'm sure you have no problem spending your money there.

      • Vince

        Without food, you would die. I am yet to hear of someone passing into the great beyond simply because he didn't purchase an app. >_>

          You could say that about most things, so it really doesn't hold a lot of meaning.

    As a Developer in training, any support of any kind is a big help.

    i loved reckless racing so i'm buying this (right now actually)

  • Edd

    Kinda agree with the OP. While $2 is not much, I'm hestitant to spend it due to Google's 15 minute policy. Even 30 minutes would allow me a truer evaluation, but as it is I'd rather not try things than waste $$$s on Apps that I end up not wanting. A panicked 10 minutes play takes all the fun out of App discovery. Free trial, developer?

    • GraveUypo

      that's true. i couldn't even download the extra content before the time expired (on a 10mbps wireless connection, i should mention). and while this game is fun, it's just not as good as reckless racing. i wouldn't have refunded it tho, it's good enough for me to keep.

    While I do enjoy their apps...the developer is a bit on the greedy side.

    Reckless Racing originally was updated to have HD graphics for capable devices but then they released another update which took out the HD graphics and soon after they released an HD version of Reckless Racing instead and charged another 5 dollars for it.

    So while yes I do believe in supporting great developers, I also believe developers shouldn't do that to their customers. Disappointing move..

    Just look at some of the comments on the original reckless racing. You'll see a lot of rage on there.
