Yup, i *FINALLY* finished scavanging bytes.

Java Rally Racer 4k

By Nicholas Klaebe


Goal:

To achieve the highest level as possible by finishing in first place in each race while competing against dogged AI opponents who are controlled by non-patent pending “Smart Alec” artificial intelligence Technology  Roll Eyes.

Features:

Drive on three different surface types: tarmac, gravel and dirt. Each effecting the driving characteristics of your car.

-   purely procedural and generated graphics
-   unique gameplay each time. (random track generation)
-   capable AI controlled opponents (they do not cheat!)
-   all direction scrolling
-   skid marks Wink

Directions:

You must complete the track in order, an indicator line will direct you back to the correct track segment. (cutting corners can be very detrimental Tongue )

With each race won the difficulty increases with longer, more bendy tracks with increasingly varied road surfaces and more opponents.

Driving fast on all but the tarmac road surface reduces your ability to steer. Steering on grass at high speeds is almost impossible!

Your current level is indicated by the number of little black squares on the top of the view screen.

Tip: use collisions with your opponents to help you get around tight corners at speed.

Controls:

Up Arrow – accelerate
Left Arrow – rotate left
Right Arrow – rotate right
Space bar – brake hard / start the current race
Control key – brake normally

Nothing happens when I press the UP arrow (or any other control key), it's just a static picture for me.

It's a nice game, some slippery roads would have been nice. Also the penalty for driving on the grass isn't high enough (sometimes I can take shortcuts which I shouldn't be allowed to). That said, it's impressive work as usual when it's coming from you!

thanks mate  Grin

Yeah, i wanted to put in momentum and thus make slippery roads possible, unfortunetly I just could not get enough bytes to do it Sad

Like wise i had a mini-map and fullscreen which both had to be dropped.

And some onscreen text would have been nice as well Tongue but i prioritized the ability to make random maps, and the computer AI.

Yep, i did not have time to fine-tune the game variables, e.g. the penalty for being on grass. I was still hunting bytes until approx an hour before the dead line!
