4K Kart racing



http://games.7sun.com/4k/kart/kart.jnlp

This is an early version of my game which is supposed to end up as a kart racing game Smiley

It's currently playable, but with lots of bits missing (e.g. no lap counter or lap timer, no finish)

Give it a go and tell me what you think!

[UPDATE 12 Jan '08]
* Added collisions.
* Added lap counter.
* Modified starting postion.
* Made karts on map view clearer.
* Game now (briefly) shows position after 3 laps, then starts a new race on a new track.

Cheers, Tim.

Controls

Left/Right - Turn left/right
Up/Down - Accelerate/Brake

Yes, I agree.  Collision detection is on my list of things to add.  It's getting a bit hard to find the extra space now... but I'll keep trying.  Smiley

Yep, skid marks are in there... but they may dissapear later to free up some space for a more needed feature.

Cheers, Tim.

The ground is a big texture, that repeats forever (as this takes less code to implement).  At some point I may add code to restrict the kart to the 'main' texture (if there's space to do so).  I think that the game may crash, or at least start drawing the texture incorrectly if you keep going straight for a long time.

Cheers, Tim.

nice... if you leave the track to explore the world and then come back, you can end up in position 24....
