    There's a free version. And yeah, it looks like you race a pack of other armadillos through a winding jungle and dirt obstacles course. The 3D graphics are incredible! OpenGL with light sourcing...can not wait until they unlock that SD card, man. The controls take some getting used to though.

    Another awesome game game, ushering the new Android 3D development generation.

    ps : tested neocore 3d bench. 20.8 fps. nexus one has 26 fps. you see : it isnt really much faster then our droid. and you have to keep in mind, that our droid haves a slightly higher res too. so this 1ghz means nothing in terms of games.

    The touchscreen controls for both apps are off by about 1/2 inch... you have to touch about 1/2 inch high to select any menu items / options. Very odd.

    Google has mentioned plans to install apps on the SD card probably through a firmware update, but it needs to make sure the encryption is solid first.

    I said it on the alldroid forums and I'll say it here, Apps2SD is totally useless. 3D intensive programs can already store 99% of their data on the SD card while keeping the small executable in ROM. The reason for the lack of support has more to do with hardware requirements and 3D frameworks that'll be built into 2.1 more than anything else. Doom is a great example of this, even if it is poorly executed.

    Also, neocore is coded to use ATITC (the texture compression method that the Qualcomm GPUs use) - the Droid uses a PowerVR SGX GPU, and I suspect that neocore uses non-compressed textures on this chip. A non-compressed texture is much more memory bandwidth intensive.
