The beauty of it...
Please add Jelpi as a character.
However, that Gremlin is pretty cute.

Pretty great mode 7 game. I would love a full-speed-full-res mode 7 ... It only need some cloud in the sky and color swap other karts.
I tryied messing around in your code and you can gain a little bit more speed by replacing line(sx,sy,sx+h_step,sy,c) with rectfill(sx,sy,sx+h_step,sy,c)

Some clouds moving in the sky to help indicate turning would be awesome. Overall very cute / fun.

Very cool and plays really well, excited to see what more you can do with it.

hello i can music please contact if interest

Hi Svetlana,

I would love music!

In my mind, I envision something like:
Title/level select: devastatingly cheerful
Race song: "hard driving" is what my cliche-ridden mind comes up with
End song/victory: peaceful perhaps

Even one original song would be amazing though.

I really love this!

It's a 1.0 release!

New Features:
--Music from Zep's "Droid Boots" for title screen
This is not a perfect thematic fit for the game, but it's an awesome song, so that counts for something.

--3 different tracks
This forced me to re-think the way that I was handling track and AI waypoint data. It ended up being much more robust as well as easier to edit. If there's interest, I can add more comments to the track code so that folks can make their own tracks.

--Graphical improvements
This includes palate-swapped carts, better victory screen with finish order shown and clouds and hills for scenery.

--Improved competitor AI
The competitors spend less time driving in circles and can almost hold their own against the player.

--Sound effects
Engine noise has two different subtle levels and there are faint thumps and clunks when you hit a wall or a kart.

This is pretty spectacular from a graphical standpoint, as far as the PICO-8 is concerned. The AI is pretty tricky to beat at the moment if you're not familiar with racing games. I would love to see a larger map in this game; with a little more detail it would already be a decent kart racer (a countdown before a race starts, something to acknowledge how you placed in the race).

Are the racers furbys?

P#18287 2016-01-14 04:19 ( Edited 2016-01-14 09:19)

I think they are a cross between Furbys, Mogwai, and mice :-)

I noticed you turn at the wrong direction when driving in reverse.

Sweet music!

Button for accelerate, please?
