Default Drift'n'Drive

Hello everyone, here's a little introduction of the latest game I'm developing.

Drift'n'Drive is a vertically scrolling, top down racing game. You race on randomly generated tracks of increasing difficulty against AI racers and upgrade parts to build faster and more powerful car as you go. My general aim is to keep the races relatively short and replayability high so you can play it in short sessions on your phone or whatever. Also a local simultaneous multiplayer tournament mode is in the plans (but probably only on iPad as the screen space on the smaller devices might make it impossible to play).

I'm doing all the work (except music and sound effects) myself like in my previous games. If you want to follow development more closely, I'm on Twitter with as gimblll. I've posted some earlier in-progress shots there too if you want to see a more.

Release date is still open, but my current estimate is about ~2-3 months from now. But I'm probably wrong, I always am.

And onwards to the gif!

Looks neat. Are those tracks endless with time limits that you extend via checkpoints, or are they of finite length?

Sorry I haven't replied earlier, I didn't notice new posts. But anyway, you control the car by pressing on the left or right side of the screen. The car accelerates automatically and has no breaks. I tried tilt control too, but it was too difficult to drive with that. I might include it as an option though if someone really wants it.

There are 3 modes in the game. The career mode, where your objective is to win the championship by winning different races and upgrading your car etc. Then there's a time attack mode with leaderboards. And then there's a split screen multiplayer mode where you can race tournaments against your friends.

I just did a new quick Vine that quickly shows what the game is about. https://twitter.com/gimblll/status/510332014646796288
