This is my first game with the pico8. I gotta say I am loving it! After my day to day job this puts the fun back into programming!
I used to play this little racing game on a 10 in 1 handheld device. Seemed simple enough to make. So after doing the nerdy teachers fruit catcher tutorial I used their "engine" to make this little game. It is definitely not optimized but it's working!
To play, simply press left or right to move the car. It's instantaneous like the original. Unlike the original there is no speed cap, so get your reflexes ready!
My high score is only 392, and only because I'd get into a rhythm and steer right into a car! Try and beat my score?
Updated to include bonus point stars! They only appear after level 10. Will you ignore them? Or go for gold!
