Under rating threshold (show) Tire upgrades should increase your handling. Slalom courses suck.

Under rating threshold (show) I agree. The crashing into items for credit is far more difficult than the championship events and the overtaking events.

Under rating threshold (show) Great Game...but Im worried about the difficulty of the game...I can win races 1st place every time without trying but when it comes to having to hit objects or get the gates I can barely pass...Possibly work on the difficulty?

Under rating threshold (show) Nice idea with the Boost charging up by Drafting... ...however, I just completed the Championship in 1st place total score after 12 races, and there is... nothing? Not even a congratulatory screen, much less any special boon like a "Super Car". Come on. Anything?

1.03 released. Added a bonus fun mode for completing all events. Now you can unlock the hulk car and spin off everyone else with ease!

Under rating threshold (show) Solid racing game with good graphics. A more elaborate upgrade system would be nice though, as the game tends to get a bit monotonous after a while.

We need to know what sort of upgrade system you want.

Under rating threshold (show) Would be nice if you could have a tutorial or at least something explaining the basic. For example, how to draft? Is drafting a good or bad thing? Is it better to smash other cars or the goal is mainly to dodge? Also, the prizes awarded should go up. I don't see the point in running race 2 and finish second to win 500$ if i can run race 1 and always finish first with 1000$ reward.

Under rating threshold (show) Car customization is a a little weak, not really much point if all there is is the ability to change one color scheme, especially with the automatic sponsor decals that don't change with the car. Should just have the entire car change with the sponsor than tease us with such a minimal customization mechanic. Improved handling option would be much appreciated. The minigames are a nice touch, tho the random generator for placement should be less random, it is hard to hit two objects that are horizontal from one another a whole track width apart. The game looks nice and gets addicting, which makes for a good time waster. With a few more additives and tweaks it could be addicting for much longer than it is.

Under rating threshold (show) Something that always weirds me out about TurboNuke racing games is how it doesn't matter if I take the inside or the outside of any turn -- these aren't really curves in the route, they're still straight lines it's just shoving me left or right.

Under rating threshold (show) no he doesnt mean drifting!! drafting is when you get up close behind another car so the air pressure is decreased for your car making it faster

Under rating threshold (show) my suggestion for a upgrade system would be to split the current ones into sub-upgrades... for instance, boost could be split into "Capacity"/"Duration"/"Power" and then Engine could be split into "Horsepower(max speed)"/"Acceleration (how fast it gets to max speed)", Tires can be split into "Drift"/"Grip"/"Duration", The fuel can be split to "Duration"/"Capacity"/"filter"(the higher the level, the more pure and efficient the fuel is making the car faster) :) these are just a few of the possible ideas for upgrades. + if you agree :P

Under rating threshold (show) Really nice small racing game. Just one point of criticism: Please don't enforce "action" with a shaky camera on us. Its okay, if the camera moves with the use of booster or if you crash into something. But if the camera shakes while driving in a straight line, it gives me a headache.

Under rating threshold (show) It's somewhat irritating/useful that all the races earn you the same amount for winning (ignoring sponsorships). Just get a medium sponsor and do the first race over and over again to upgrade your car considerably, and you'll easily beat the difficulty curve. The only exception to this is slaloms. Damn you, slaloms!

Under rating threshold (show) One of the worst in-game cameras I have ever had the misfortune of enduring. Why the hell does it bounce around like it's drunk? There is no intelligent reason to program your game's camera like that ever. It makes the the "hit X number of obstacles" challenges far more difficult than they need to be.

Under rating threshold (show) People complaining about the slalom courses: try not going your maximum speed, it gives you much more time to get to the gate. People complaining about the "hit things" courses: try laying on the boost constantly; it refills when you hit something.

Under rating threshold (show) in june 21 there's a race that to receive gold award we should overtake 40 cars, but when we start the race, it says that my position is 40/40, this means that there are 40 cars INCLUDING me. How am I supposed to get gold if i can only overtake 39 cars? (I can't overtake myself)

Under rating threshold (show) Don't even try to get all gold medals...at 30 you get the Kon badge , and for all you get....nothing. Just concentrate on getting the ''pass'' objective to unlock the car. 100% gold completion unlocks nothing.

Under rating threshold (show) Okay. Played through all the badges, and now I have a couple of significant gripes. One: Collision detection, especially on the robots. It's terrible. I've watched robots pass through my car without breaking multiple times. Two: The custard pies. The splash effect is amusing, but not when it makes you miss the three pies right behind the one you hit. Also, same deal as with the robots - collision detection. Three: This is a racing game, and you're seriously telling me there's no way to upgrade or even adjust handling? Bad form. It's a good game, but it has some crippling flaws. Three of five.

Under rating threshold (show) I and many others would appreciate an upgrade that improves handling. In response to another comment, you, the developer, asked for ways that it could be improved. I have one simple request. An upgrade for power steering. I would increase handling and make some aspects of the game doable without a massive amount of practice and luck. I am ok with massive amounts of practice and luck, as long as the game is designed for it, this one is NOT.

Under rating threshold (show) I hate the slalom courses (poor handling) and absolutely dreaded the robot courses. Instead of randomizing the bot placement so that's it's impossible to complete it sometimes (ex when bots are next to each other and require more than one lap to hit), they should have set placements. I should not be relying on luck to have them placed just right.

Under rating threshold (show) The only PROBLEMS were the different modes that didn't race the AI, you felt the issues there and the handling couldn't really handle it. Hitting objects kinda felt off at times, sometimes I felt the hit box wasn't clear enough. Lastly objects shouldn't stay on the field unless it looks different. Broken robot pieces, fine. Smaller basket balls? no. The random placement sometimes felt like you needed to be a little luck to manage a gold. Slalom Gates were indeed the WORST, either the handling isn't made for it or the gates were placed too close together... or I just suck (honestly it feels like I can clear it if I clutch hard enough). Felt good when you're racing, little nostalgia to the classics. The non-racing, not good. I know you're getting complaints on handling, but it's good. Any more and it's not made for the racing section. 2+/5, I admit I had fun, but the issues stood out. Though at the moment this is all I can think of, hope it helps.
