Haven't done any pixel animation for awhile, so I decided to get back into it with something I thought was going to be simple - wide pixels and no bipedal characters but just a chunk of metal.

Turned out to be a bit of an animation nightmare as I ended up having to do the scrolling manually again as P Shop Pro just wasn't having any of it, making the process take way longer than it should have been. I wanted to add extra layers but it just kept getting harder (really need to abandon PSPro and use Pro Motion instead...).

References I used was youtube of Continental Circus, Wec Le Mans (Amstrad versions)Burnout and Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge.

Wow! This is really good! 

chipg4 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/26/2014 10:55

It reminds me of top gear snes.

I played it when i was a kid 

CensoredGames (Level 1 Intern) @ 7/13/2013 18:22

It really feels like I'm playing an old racing game when I see this. 

AtskaHeart (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 1/26/2013 07:03

 So oldschool :p.

PlayerZ (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/29/2012 07:42

 Man i'm not so sure your good at this game. that car just keeps smoking you. j/k really great animation for it being so simple

luisniel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/30/2011 09:03

When I come here, I whatch this for minutes. That's awesome. Please, make a v2 of it.

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 2/15/2011 15:25

Ah, the good old racing games live again!

TheZakMan (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 5/6/2010 12:35

wow!     tha is a good mock-up, very good animated

Sneep29 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 3/8/2010 18:14

Nice, nice, nice. Reminds me of Top Gear for the SNES.

Peeter (Level 4 Button Man) @ 7/19/2009 08:12

Reminds me of Crazy Cars 3 

Argyle (Level 6 Manager) @ 6/8/2009 19:38

Quite possibly my favorite mock-up I've seen in a long time.  Grats on a ribbon!

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 6/7/2009 05:26

bricks were shat.

and stickman needs to comeback more often.

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 6/6/2009 01:05

I've spent way too much time on lotus esprit turbo challange :-D great piece!

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 6/5/2009 06:10

another trip down memory lane!  you even managed to capture that old feeling of no matter how much you turn (either way) if the car you're coming up on wants to hit you it'll find its way into your path!  (always loved/hated that)

great looping animation!

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/3/2009 08:02

 I like the sparks and dirt coming off that tire when it does that turn.

fydo (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/2/2009 23:23

Wow! This makes me happy inside. NICE WORK! :)

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 6/2/2009 13:13

Yeah, that's one of the things I missed seeing, but rest assured I've already fixed it and will update it after the challenge is done.

Dusty (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 6/2/2009 11:48

Only thing that bothers me is the one car(that speeds ahead) being apparently much larger than the others, even when right next to them.

Liman (Level 3 Chief) @ 6/2/2009 08:09

Really cool idea! This is definitely going to win.

Chace (Level 5 Captain) @ 6/2/2009 03:59

Voted for this.
Really awesome. :D

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 6/1/2009 13:47

 Great job on the fake zooming in etc ;)

washburn (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/31/2009 19:50

The backround and animations are great but the cars just look like Rad Racer to me.I wish they had a little more Mad Max flavor.Very fun to watch and pretty.

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 5/31/2009 14:44

this piece is missing out on some recognition I think.

ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 5/31/2009 08:31

 jajajajaaj man!, again, you got my vote!!! come on!!!.... this is great! JAJAJJAJA... that horizontal scrolled background!!!!!... amazing! XD... g0g0g0g0 stickman!

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 5/31/2009 06:36

Game called helldriver should be more like mad max imo (see overlander but this is okay. Cool cars and animation.

ramazing (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 5/30/2009 16:45

nice animation  :)

Balamoot (Level 10 Maniac) @ 5/30/2009 15:33

I do remember the game... ) 

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/30/2009 08:21

haha, great. lotus challenge.. sweet memories.

i recognize my driving style.. in the lapping one =)

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 5/30/2009 01:33

motherf................... this is too awesome

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/29/2009 17:45

@Blackbeltdude - Fixed.

@Reo - Re-layering(is that a word?)the bacground sky would be a nightmare right now :s

Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 5/29/2009 16:10

It's brilliant. Absolutly brilliant.

Though, I think it's a tad odd the time doesn't move when everything else does. The easiest way to fix that would to just add an infinity symbol... or, you could have go down, then back up with some kind of check point (as you do go under one). ;)

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 5/29/2009 16:09

If you make the sky darker, like in a night scene and add some brighter reds, you're home!

Excellent animation and art as usual!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/29/2009 14:55

Oh no I did not mean its inelligible its just that it has a more futuristic look than true cyberpunk. My bad if it seemed I was complaining.

*To me cyberpunk = 'dirty' - futuristic = clean and sparkly.

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 5/29/2009 14:48

{ I think we have a winner... ^o)
   Even whith just the Background in the cyberpunk style.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/29/2009 14:40

The cyberpunk elements are in the background buildings (was thinking of Bladerunner and that gun kata film with Christian Bale). I tried to get it into the car but I'm not so hot on designing vehicles :p.

If it's not Cyberpunky enough then please take it out of the challenge as I would'nt like to be involved in any complications like in the Omnivore Eye Portrait Challenge.

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 5/29/2009 14:40

THis is very done, remind me a lot of these old car games.. xD nice job!!!

ellie-is (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 5/29/2009 14:23

Awesome. I hope this one wins.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/29/2009 14:20

So good, even if not very cyberpunk at all!!!

I would have liked some flames on the car as shown on the title screen but...

So good!!!


*Scale - add layer - re pixel = pixel-zen*

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/29/2009 14:07

Scale wide pixels and you end up with an ugly mess.

Scale the car - add layer - re pixel.

Tomic's car is the same as the other cars, just a different colour.

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 5/29/2009 13:42

Pure Win! :O

I assume there's no scaling involved when the cars go in and out of the foreground/background.

One car, Tomic's, I guess, seems a bit bigger than all the other cars, don't know if that was intended.

This shows a lot of work. Good job. You definitely have my vote.

FrostedMayhem (Level 4 Murderer) @ 5/29/2009 13:42

WOW. That animation's...mesmorising =D Very nicely done
