It was a pleasant Sunday morning drive in the mountains until a volcanic eruption happened to ruin everything.
Race home along the winding roads, swerving to avoid the slow and the doomed, just seconds ahead of a molten stream of lava.
Maybe if you can drive through the night and into the next day, you will be safe.

Keep the hammer down to avoid a fiery death, but don't skid out on curves or crash into the other motorists.

Up: Drive
Down: Break

v 1.0
This cartridge is feature complete, though it could use some better sound and, of course, some music.

I've got this thing feature complete now.

Newly added:
--Title screen with reflected wave effect
--Collisions between cars and scenery
--Animated lava creeping up from behind
--Particles and explosions
--Multiple car colors (palate swap!)
--3D cars (well they are made of stacked graphics)
--End game condition (drive until the afternoon of the next day)
--Mediocre sound effects (tricky

Palate animation and line by line drawing with sspr is pretty powerful, I have found.

Do any of the musicians out there have a good driving tune idling on their hard drives? I'd love to put some music in this. Of course, I would add credit on the title screen.

Many thanks,
-Electric Gryphon

The lava run is a great idea. Too many good things on this console.

I might have to repost this with some sound edits...;) That seems to be the only thing lacking here. Super job!

Hi Hseiken, Please feel free to improve the sound and share.
