You will need to adjust the slingshot method based on the turns and the track. Too little power and you will not make it to the turn. Too much power and you will smash into the side. It sounds like a rather basic concept, but it is quite an entertaining game.

Not only do you have an entire new series and set of boards to pass, but you have new birds with new capabilities. It is extremely fun even if you are not a Star Wars fan. The basic version is free, but add-ons and HD will cost you. All of your favorite Star Wars characters will show up in bird form and the planets are even modeled after the planets from the movie franchise.
