Any feedback is useful. I think I might push it more towards an incrementally difficult, timed level with extra obstacles on the next release, with races as an optional extra. I'd love to know what people think about that, when they're not puking.

I honestly don't know if that's good or bad. It's supposed to be fast and difficult with the tunnel shooting past you (try it on extreme level down a narrow tunnel).

I'm going to stick my head in the sand for now and assume your comment is positive (I'll sleep better).

Naw, no worries! Not negative against you! After watching the video, it was rather dizzying to me, hence that comment. I'm an old man, so whaduya expect?! Can't hang with that kind of game play anymore I guess. Don't dig roller coasters or dizzying rides like that either these days! 😉 It's just me!!!

Thanks, glad you liked it. Don't hesitate to suggest any improvements. I'm off to make the menu screens look cooler first I think.

Was really hoping this might be a sweet 'S.T.U.N. Runner'-like game, but still looks pretty dope. Awaiting more detailed gameplay impressions as I already have massive backlog. Will be happy to support another game in this vein.

As a side note, it would be nice to have some racecraft variation and different models/upgrades etc...

Just checked out a video of STUN Runner, looks like a fun game. My game is supposed to be very much a 3D steering type game, I used to like flight sims. It is impossible to play in a train or bus due to the difficulty steering though, which is a problem for a game on mobile devices.

I'm going to add timed levels so it becomes a little more like STUN Runner, with gun turrets and stuff in the way, but it will still essentially be the same 3D steering game, just with 2 game modes (it's a straight up lapped racing game at the moment).

I like the idea of creating another game with easier steering and a bit more like stun runner, so may seek you out if I do that. Should be fairly quick to do, since a lot of the code will stay the same.

And yes, I do need to work on more craft variation and upgrades etc. There are 3 different craft with different characteristics and 3 different weapons at the moment, but definitely needs improving.

Anyway, if you get round to trying it out properly, I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for pointing out stun runner to me as well.
