If you look around these days in the App-Store, you’ll immediately notice some familiar names when you look at the list of the most downloaded apps: BMW on position 1, Volkswagen on position 4, Mercedes-Benz on position 6 And Seat in place 14.

As a racing game, the Z4 game thus goes through less, but much more than gimmick for intermediate. Even if you can put your “painted” Picassos online, the driving soon loses its charm. After all, the car is beautifully modeled, sounds great thanks to original engine sounds and controls itself with virtual pedals and the Accelerometer steering quite well. The “Lite” version is, by the way, only a preview of the full version, which according to developer Artificial Life, inc. In May this year. If you want to view the whole thing in moving pictures,Youtube has the opportunity to do so.
