Wrong Way Racing by Jared Bailey

I was working on a prototype and became frustrated with the progress so I decided to make a micro game. Not that my usual game are very big! It'll be free, no IAP, but shows an ad every 3rd game. I'm breaking my new years resolution of only doing paid games this year, but it didn't feel right charging for such a tiny game. It's been submitted to Apple for review so hopefully it'll be out next week. It'll also come out on Android at the same time.

You play the black car. Tap to change lanes. See how many laps you can do before you become a flaming pile of metal bits. It's a very unforgiving little game. Hope you like it!

Two. Tap anywhere to change to the other lane.

This might look simple but I can already smell that this is once again an addictive game

I really like small, good and elegant concepts and that sure is one of them

I love how simple the concept is but how ridiculously hard it will get.

This brought back some memories of when I was a kid playing Mario Kart on the snes, and I would do the courses backward because I never wanted it to end. That won't be the case in this game though, lol.
