Default Bad Student Driver (by P1XL Games)


Youtube link | Pop Up


Hi everyone! We've put together a new little game that we hope you enjoy. It started off as a Flappyjam entry, and then turned into something else. We're still working on RPG Quest - Minimae II among other things, but also wanted to make a free game to test the waters. Here we go:

Are you the best worst driver? Following on the success of “Super Splatform”, rated 4.5 stars by Touch Arcade, is P1XL Games’ first foray into free, ad-supported gaming: “Bad Student Driver”. Can you pass the student driver test to earn your learner's permit or better? Can you even manage to stay on the road? Are you that terrible of a driver, or is something really wrong with your front-end alignment?

Share your best scores on Twitter, Facebook, or the Game Center leaderboard, and earn achievements as you drive further and (accidentally) wreck more traffic cones.

Releasing March 27th, 2014, Bad Student Driver supports iPhone 4 or newer, and iPod touch 4g or newer. Optimized for iPhone 5.

It's single tap controls just like that other game - steering a car with just a single button isn't an ideal method, so that's where the BAD student driver idea came in. It's pretty much impossible to drive well, but you can still manage to survive once you figure it out.

Thanks for the support as always!

Here's a Vine of a very short game of Bad Student Driver: https://vine.co/v/MMgAF3AIV9W

(my son is playing, and really lived up to the name)

Hahah, how old is your son? Well, is he a toddler or is he a student driver (keeping the question internet safe)

He's closer to being a student driver than a toddler He's actually pretty good at the game now, but making a good gameplay Vine is pretty tricky; after many attempts we figured we couldn't do much better in the 6 seconds.

Oh no! What happened? P1XL was one of the only devs left that I could count on with my apparently now ancient original iPad

It does run on the iPad 1, but in that 1x / 2x window that iPhone-only apps do. So, you can still play it; we'll make it a Universal app if it gets some traction on the iPhone
