This is my first PICO8-game, a "The Force Awakens" fan-project:
You play Rey on her speeder and have to pick up electronic gargabe while avoiding vehicles in your way.
Outstanding Pico-8 adaption of Rey's Theme by Chris D. (@gruber_music).
I am looking forward to your feedback and suggestions.

Seems weird the smoke stays rather stationary while the ground goes so fast under it, doesn't it? Looks weird when you move too... Maybe make it go to the left at least a little?
Also you should add puffs of smoke when you collide with other vehicles.
Beautiful! And pretty nice yet simple gameplay.
The floor paralax is neat but the background would need other levels of paralax, with the bg object, clouds and haze on different planes because right now, it really looks like a scrolling 2D plate that move behind the scene, and it totally contrasts with the nice floor paralax you put on the front. (and so breaks the illusion of depth)

Holy shit balls this is fast! Hahah.
I love the artwork in this - that Destroyer in the background is awesome :)
"The Lair" has a sweet parallax effect that would look really good in your game;
