Under rating threshold (show) after going over a jump the cars change direction too much, they should keep going in the direction they fall in, rather than completely change direction and fly off sideways

Under rating threshold (show) if the cars go too slow they die, if they overtake you they die. There needs to be a thing making you go at the same speed as the cars

Under rating threshold (show) Add an option where you can change the speed of the cars... It's a bit boring to wait 5 minutes every time you want the cars to reach 100 mph :3

Developer response from duckets

Agreed, however as mentioned above, the game was produced for a 2-day gamejam and as such I kind of have to leave it as-is. I will try to add stats/badges for things like number of cars remaining at 100mph :)

Under rating threshold (show) This would be fun with a number of "Hidden" achievements. Say, an achievement for destroying all cars in less than fifteen seconds, and another for all cars making it to seventy. Things like that would make to want to experiment to see what all the achievements are.

Under rating threshold (show) Can you eliminate every car but your favorite color(or 2 colors)? Can you do it under 60 or 50 mph? Can you get just the two cars you like least gone under 40 mph? Can the creators do something even more with this concept and leave this as a free mode inside of the game? 4/5 Great creative game with lots of entertainment to be had. Lots of things you can try to do, though honestly, this doesn't feel like a finished product. It would have been a 5/5 if it had a mode with goals and other things and then this as a free mode if you just felt the need to ramp a car off a cliff at 150 mph.

As mentioned in the description, this was produced in a very short timeframe for a gamejam, and as such it could only be a very simple production. It wouldn't be in the spirit of he jam to add more gameplay features afterwards. But I am looking into adding these kinds of stats/badges for the things you can do with the game as it is.

Under rating threshold (show) @cwaddle Au contraire, my freind. this is what is known as a SANDBOX. It's only goal is to do what you want with it. Make your Own goals. There are many such games in the world, some of which are REALLY REALLY popular. The goal in this sort of game is to test your imagination and to have fun

It's not a game in the traditional sense, but it was produced for a tounge-in-cheek "game jam" based on the ideas tweeted by @petermolydeux. If you look it up it might make more sense to you :-)

Under rating threshold (show) Incredibly cool concept, but could use a mute button. Also, maybe some objectives to meet? Nothing as simple as "kill the cars," but some achievments would be cool.

Thanks! Will be adding a mute button, but as mentioned in other replies, I won't be changing the gamplay.

Under rating threshold (show) Would be better if you added a option to play a map you "made". This would not only improve greatly on the game, but also would make it more entertaining. Over all though, good game!

Under rating threshold (show) epic start. I'd love to see this idea expanded upon...perhaps make levels or just achievements and perhaps some rpg elements like a level-up system...just some thoughts, although as it is this will probably keep me entertained for an hour or so. 5/5 for originality and promise

Under rating threshold (show) different levels with different goals would be good. maybe even different types of vehicles. or a vechile editor perhaps. found it funny that i left the mouse in neutral and the cars ended up killing each other on a straight damn road.......did you model these drivers on people in my neighbourhood?????? :) :) :)

Developer response from duckets

I'm enjoying reading all the suggestions for gamplay here, however because this game was made in a few hours for a 48h game jam it wouldn't really be in the spirit of the event to continue to add gameplay features after the time limit so I'm going to leave it as-is. However I am looking into adding stats/badges for all the interesting things that you can currently choose to do in the game, and I'll consider all ideas for a sequel if I have time!

Under rating threshold (show) This is incredibly addictive; the control scheme is spot on, it's simple to pick up and play and when the 'determined' blue car rammed the orange off the road to take the lead, I was completely sold. Bit of 'gamification' (different game modes? Perhaps: you have to encourage one car to win? You have to stop one rogue car with aggressive AI from destroying the rest?) and this is a total winner.
