Drive, slide and nitro boost your way through nine tracks in Sideways, an action packed top view racer. This isn't a casual Sunday drive, chaps. Be prepared for a wild ride.

★ 9 full race tracks, plus training track and credits track.
★ Up to 10 cars on track at once.
★ 3 game modes: League, Knockout and Time Trial.
★ Nitro boosts, destructive pick-ups and… well… lots of carnage.
★ Silky smooth 60fps graphics on iPad 1 and iPad 2.
★ Extra goodness and fully anti-aliased graphics on iPad 2.
★ Game Center leaderboards and achievements.
★ Use left and right buttons or swiping to steer.
★ Left and right handed controls.
★ iCade and iControlPad support.

The Sideways Racing League may be a decaying shadow of its glory days, but someone forgot to inform the drivers, who are more competitive than they've ever been. Top the leaderboard for each league area to unlock the next.

Race all tracks from all areas in succession. A win gives you the privilege to race again. Anything less ends your game, driver. It's called Knockout for a reason. Good luck, you're definitely going to need it.

It's just you and the clock, with no distractions. Time Trial race records count for bragging rights and are listed in Game Center, so get your speed on. To unlock tracks, win the Sideways Racing League for each area.


“Sideways Racing makes for a great arcade racer. Harking back to the old days of top down racing is an excellent move and it makes Sideways Racing all the more endearing.” — ★★★★☆ Jennifer Allen, 148Apps

“Harkening back to the top-view racers of classic arcades, it keeps the same great emphasis on gameplay but puts the pedal to the metal on gorgeous graphics, immersive sound, and multi-touch iPad controls.” — Rene Ritchie,

“…a shining example of great gameplay complimented with excellent design.” — Stephen Heller,

“The overall look of the game, along with the menu system is polished, and is easily one of the best looking games released for the iPad this year.” Rating: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED — Stephen Heller,

“After playing Sideways for a few hours, I’m hooked. It’s a beautifully designed, immersive game that offers a decent amount of gameplay for a few dollars.” Rating: 9/10 — David Appleyard,

★★★★☆ — TUAW
