Hey, my first challenge entry. check that out.


Anyway, think Excitebike, since thats the general idea behind it. Except there are specific places and not just "if you finish before this time your in 2nd" etc.

The bubbles, like the stripe things in Excitebike, lower your engine's Temp so you can keep on boostin', except they disappear for a while after someone gets them

Unlike Excitebike, the enemy racers will deliberately aim for you and will take the bubble powerups. And instead of ramps there's spins and tricks or something... didn't really work out the logistics of all of it...


Hey! I liked this pallette and idea so much that I had to go and make a vector version too!

Lovely. Voted.

I think parralaxes are murder too. D:

But at least it's flowing now.

Zeratanus (Level 4 Deputy) @ 4/9/2010 12:45

Alright, spent a good while trying to make it run better. I think my brain is bleeding now. I'll be leaving it as it is now, cuz trying to time everything correctly in parralax is just absolutely breaking me

The Fry Bat (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/9/2010 10:27

Good start- you might want to make it more fluid though.

Zeratanus (Level 4 Deputy) @ 4/9/2010 09:40

Never tried parralax animation before, but I gave it a go!

The Fry Bat (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/8/2010 17:43

This is my favorite entry so far. Everything's crisp and well-defined; you've really conquered this palette.

I think it'd be a shoo-in if you animated it with a parralax.

Itt's not bad though a bit too simple for my tastes and I find the background extremely bland.  The sprites are well formed for the style.

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/8/2010 14:24

Wonderfully done.  Art-wise that is.  I'd have to agree it's one of the best.

Not really sure how this would work as a game.

Zeratanus (Level 4 Deputy) @ 4/8/2010 13:48

Thanks folks :D

I moved the lower enemy up 1 pixel so her shark didn't fuse to the background so much, and edited the 1st so hopefully it looks a bit less odd now.

And yes, the green one does remind me of Cave Story too lol. It started as just a little flying saucer type thing but morphed into a froggy version of Chin-Fish

Mr. Paco (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/8/2010 13:08

That little green creature reminds me of something out of Cave Story, especially with the red eyes. =]

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/8/2010 13:04

I can't believe how well things work at this scale - I love it!

I racked my brains to come up with a useful crit, but the only thing I would change is the hook on the "1" of "1st" looks a little odd, and maybe AA the "2" in the time (using the green of the time's outline box?).  But that's the best I could do, since this is made so well.

best entry thus far. great style, good work keeping everything simple and readable without being too crowded or noisy.
